Sprains and strains are common injuries, especially in children and in people who play sport. Pain usually occurs straight away with a strain but may not begin until a few hours after the event. Although both injuries may look swollen and bruised, swelling is greater with sprains and it is usually difficult to move or walk on the injured body part. A sprain causes pain, swelling and there may also be bruising, or a blue discolouration. The discolouration appears because the small blood vessels and fibres in the flesh burst, causing blood to enter the surrounding tissue. A sprain is caused by damage to a ligament, which is usually caused by a stretching or awkward movement of a joint. Ice Spray Pain Relief is intended for the acute treatment of bruises and sprains. The strong cooling effect leads to quick pain relief.
