Why does a sprain heal slowly?

We will start off understanding a sprain. A sprain is basically when you twist lets say your ankle to far and the ligaments are damaged by the excessive twisting of the joint. Ligaments consist of dense regular connective tissue. Dense regular connective tissue is made up of closely packed thick collagenous fibers. Thus when the dense regular connective tissues are damaged it just takes longer for them to heal because they are so densly packed together. Hope this helps! ^_^


In Sport what exactly is a high ankle sprain?

It's a sprain in the upper ligament of your ankle. These are usually much more painful and take longer to heal. (I had one about 2 months ago and they suck). The only good part is that with a high ankle sprain there is less of a chance of recurring problems as compared to a low ankle sprain aka. regular sprain.
