Child diseases and conditions





A sprain is an injury resulting from the twisting of a joint.
The ligaments get pulled or torn and the neighbouring muscles and blood vessels are also damaged.
The common site for sprain is ankle, wrist or knee.
The part is painful and swollen.
Cold compresses should be applied immediately.
If the swelling or pain is serious, a doctor should be consulted to make sure there is no fracture.
Treatment consists of rest to the sprained area, a firm crepe bandage and the keeping of the sprained foot or hand raised.
Aspirin can be given for relief of pain.
