A sprain is a stretching or tearing of one or more ligaments, the tough fibrous bands that hold the ankle bones in place. Sprains can be caused by anything from a sports injury or accident to stepping on an uneven or sloped surface. Generally, the movements that can stretch a ligament beyond its normal range are twisting, rolling and turning of the foot. Sprains are divided into categories based on the severity of the injury, from Grade 1 (slight damage to the ligament) to Grade 3 (complete tear). Symptoms may include pain, swelling, stiffness and bruising. There may be a popping sound when the ankle is moved or touched. The ankle may be unstable or unable to hold weight.
Wrist tendonitis, or tenosynovitis, is an inflammation of the tendons on the thumb sides of your wrist joint. Tenosynovitis may involve more than one tendon. These tendons anchor the muscles that lift the forearm and extend the wrist and hand. Partial tears of these tendons result in pain, especially when lifting or grasping objects. Pain is usually located in the front of the wrist and worsens with activity. Other symptoms include sensitivity to touch, limited mobility, and wrist weakness. Because X-rays are usually normal, diagnosis of lateral epicondylitis is made by examining your elbow and is also based on your medical history.
