Sprained Ankle Treatment At Home
Sprained Ankle Injury
The ankle joint that connects the foot to the lower leg is often damaged. Injury usually happens when the foot is planted awkwardly and an unnatural twisting motion affects the joint. This common injury can occur during sports events or walking, or even while doing something as easy as getting out of bed. Ankle injuries can be very painful and make daily activities very difficult.
Ligaments providing the connection between the bones of ankle can be injured when extra stretching force is applied. This happens most commonly when the foot is inverted too much. The most common reason for this injury is that the foot was placed incorrectly on the ground, or it can occur while walking or running on stairs or on difficult terrain. Many times, the damage happens accidently during simple tasks, such as getting off the sofa or doing sports.
When an ankle is injured, the symptoms of inflammation usually occur. Internal bleeding, swelling and pain result from this disorder. The amount of swelling and bleeding depends on how fast blood circulation is at the time of disability. During sports, the heart rate is high and circulation in the muscles is maximized. In this case, bleeding at the disability area can become strong without first aid. Pain in the area can also be strong because the nerves are more sensitive, and redness and warmth are caused by increased blood flow to the area.
Biofrost for sprained-ankle treatment
Biofrost pain relief gel lowers skin temperature and reduces pain and inflammation. Once the gel has been applied to the area of pain, it releases heat from the skin’s surface. This cold therapy process reduces swelling and pain.

How does Biofrost work?
The cooling effect is based on ethanol, menthol, eucalyptus oil and peppermint. The product has been further enhanced by dimethyl sulfone (MSM), which is essential for joint well-being.
MSM helps maintain joint mobility and alleviates inflammation and muscle tenderness, and it also has anti-inflammatory effects and pain-reducing properties. It is a vital mineral that is stored in every cell of the body.
