Ligamentsare bands of flexible tissue made up of various thin fibers and help to connect the bones together. These ligaments also helped in the flexible movement of the bones. Sometimes these ligaments sprained due to stressed twisting of the joint. This is manifested by swollen, painful and tender joint. The severe sprains around knee and ankle may halt the mobility. Mainly the RICE technique (R=rest, I=ice, C=compression, E=elevation) is used to get rid of sprain. Painkillers may be recommended to relieve the pain.
