When ligaments connecting bones are torn, wrenched, or twisted, the resultant injury is called a sprain. In many cases, kids tell their parents that they are in significant pain, but there are few visible signs of the condition. Most kids experience a sprain while engaging in a sport or while running around and playing. They may also receive such injuries from a fall or during an accident. You should bring your child to see our team right away if you’re concerned they have a sprain, so we can work with you and your little one to relieve pain and start restoring full mobility.
