Sprains and strains

Sprains are quite common, notably among athletes. They happen due to the stretching or tearing of muscles, ligaments, and tissues around a joint or limb. This injury doesn't involve fractures, dislocations, or damage to the skin, but it can lead to swelling, pain, and restricted movement in the affected area.

Common signs and what causes them:

  • Swelling, pain, and restricted joint movement

  • Result from intense exercise or improper weight-bearing, and external forces

When you accidentally sprain something, it's important to differentiate between a soft tissue sprain and a fracture.

Treatment approach:

A sprain is typically due to excessive twisting or pulling of the fascia, muscles, and ligaments around a joint or limb, often caused by indirect force.

Initial treatment typically involves rest, ice, compression bandages, and elevation of the affected area to manage symptoms. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary. During recovery, active exercises are often recommended to aid rehabilitation.

"Alpha-BB is an effective way to ease sprain-related pain and swelling at home."

What is Alpha-BB and what does it help with?

Alpha-BB goes deep into cells to ease pain, reduce swelling, speed up tissue repair and cell growth, improve blood flow, and limit tough tissue formation.

How to use it:

Place the device on the sprained area for 8 minutes, right around the affected spot.

Treatment placement tip:

Keep it close to the injury and change the angle every 10 minutes during treatment.

Target all areas around the painful joint. Treat for 30-40 minutes each session, aiming for 2-4 sessions daily.
