Ligament Injury

Ligament injury can occur when the ligament is stretched forcefully and results in a sprain. Ankle, knee, wrist, and neck are commonly affected joints. When the ligament is exposed to extreme force (fall or other injuries), it can tear. Vitamin C supplements, rest, and ice compressions can heal ligament injury faster.
