What is the difference between sprain, dislocate and twist? I am reading the definitions and I am honestly completely confused. Can anyone explain the difference in a much simpler way?
These all occur when a joint is overstressed.
A twist is generally a minor injury, involving hyperextension of muscles and tendons, and the like. A sprain occurs when the ligaments in a joint are injured, ranging anywhere from being overextended to being partially or completely torn. A dislocation occurs when bones are moved out of place, for example a shoulder being pulled out of its joint.
