Make a no win no fee Harleston claim for twists and sprains
When you experience a twist or sprain, it means that a joint in your body has been stretched too far. This means that some of the fibres in that part of your body tear, which can be very painful and result in future joint and muscle issues. Both twists and sprains are very common, and tend to happen in the normal course of everyday life. Another common way in which you may experience a sprain or twist could be while partaking in sporting activities. The following is a list of the most common places you may experience a twist or sprain in the body:
- The knee can become strained when a person turns quickly during physical activities;
- The ankle can become strained when walking or running on an uneven surface;
- The wrist can become strained when a person falls onto their hand; and
- The thumb can become strained during repetitive physical activity (such as playing a racquet sport) or a fall.
How to deal with a sprain or twist
Usually, you should know immediately if you have twisted or sprained a part of your body, as the affected area will be extremely painful and is usually visibly swollen straight away. The most common reactions to a sprain or twist usually include:
- Severe pain;
- Swelling and inflammation;
- Bruising; and
- Loss of movement in the affected body part.
Thankfully, twists and sprains tend to heal themselves over time, but for the damage to your joint to heal quicker, it’s best if you do not involve yourself in a lot of unnecessary movement. Having limited abilities can result in having to take time off work, which in turn often causes financial struggle. Accident Advice Helpline understands that the aftermath of an accident, especially one which wasn’t your fault, can be difficult to deal with. Some severe twists and sprains can result in prolonged medical attention. In some cases this could be costly, and again you may need to miss work to attend various medical appointments.
