Estimated Reading Time: 7 minsViews: 12K1. Contact your doctor if your symptoms are severe. If you can’t bear any weight on the injured joint, can’t move it, or you feel numbness in the area, this may be a sign that the ligament has torn completely or you have broken a bone. Seek medical attention immediately. Put an ice pack on the area on the way to your doctor. Severe swelling, such a when your joint appears twice its size or feels hot to the touch, or pain in the area can also mean you have a serious sprain that should be treated by a doctor. Compare your injured joint to your non-injured joint to determine how badly it's swollen. If you have a fever or any open cuts around the injury, see a doctor immediately to rule out a broken bone and prevent infection. The doctor can do an X-ray or MRI to determine the extent of your injury. If you notice redness and heat around the injury, it may be a sign of infection. Contact your doctor immediately. If the same joint has been sprained or injured before, it’s best to see a doctor e
2. Rest the sprained joint to prevent further injury and let it heal. Don’t put any weight on the area for at least 48 to 72 hours. After this period, and once the swelling has gone down, you can start gently using the injured joint again. If you have a sprained ankle or knee, you may want to use crutches for the first couple of days. Talk to your doctor to find the best solution. Rest a sprained wrist by putting your arm in a sling. Tape a sprained finger or toe to the adjacent one to keep it immobile, or splint it with at homemade or commercial splint. You can also wrap a sprained thumb with a bandage to let it rest.
3. Ice the joint for 15-20 minutes 4-8 times per day to reduce the swelling. Apply ice, an ice pack, or a bag of frozen vegetables on the area as soon as you can after your injury. Don’t put ice directly on your skin. Instead, wrap an ice pack in a thin towel. Leave it on the injury for 15-20 minutes. Repeat this every few hours for the first 48 hours after the injury, or until the swelling goes down. Be extra gentle with your sprain after you’ve iced it. You won’t feel as much pain or discomfort but you should still rest. Avoid icing your sprain if you have an open or infected wound, hypersensitivity to cold, acute dermatitis or eczema on the injured joint, impaired circulation, Raynaud’s disease, or lack of skin sensitivity.
4. Wrap the joint to stabilize it and further reduce swelling. Wrap an elastic or neoprene bandage around the joint several times. Don’t wrap too tightly. You want the bandage to feel snug without squeezing or pinching. It's best to have someone wrap the joint for you, as it's very difficult to do it correctly on your own. Find elastic bandage and special compressive sleeves for your ankle or wrist in your local pharmacy.
