Treatments in Madrid for Sprains

The foot has a multitude of ligaments whose function is to provide stability and keep the bones together. When we make a sudden movement or stumble of such magnitude that the ligaments cannot support it, an overstretch, partial or total tear of these ligaments occurs, called a sprain.
This is a typical injury in some sports such as handball, basketball and soccer, and must be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible to prevent these injuries from becoming chronic or worsening.

There are three types of sprains, depending on the severity:

  • Grade 1 sprain: there is distention of the ligaments without breaking them.
  • Grade 2 sprain: there is partial tear of the ligamentous tissue.
  • Grade 3 sprain: there is a complete tear of the ligamentous portion.

The Podiatrist is perfectly trained to treat this type of injuries.
