Once a sprain, always a sprain?
Is the old saying true, “Once a sprain, always a sprain”? While there is some truth to this statement, the likelihood of future sprain is greatly reduced with proper care. Once an injury has occurred to an area of the body, there will always be an increased likelihood of repeat injury to that area due to a principle known as ‘plastic deformation’. It is like when you stretch a rubber band out as far as it can go, then notice that it doesn’t go back to its original size. Fortunately, the structures of the body have better luck bouncing back than that rubber band. The only way a ligament can be overstretched, sprained, is when the two bones making up the joint move lose their normal position. Aligning bones that are out of position is the Chiropractic specialty. An aligned joint allows that proper healing of that sprained ligament therefore making it less likely to sprain in the future.
