I think I have sprained or strained my joint......what do I do?

Most sprains and strains can be treated at home without seeing a GP.

Characteristics of a strain / sprain are:

- Pain, weakness or tenderness around the wrist, thrumb, back, leg, knee, ankle or foot

- The injured area is swollen

- You cannot put weight on the injury or use it normally

- You have cramping or muscles spasms

Please go to A & E or call 999 if:

- You heard a crack when you had your injury

- The injured body part has changed shape

- The injury is numb, discoloured or cold to touch

You may have broken a bone and will need an X-ray
