Example sentences using "Sprained"

Q: Please show me example sentences with sprained .
A: A sprain is just an over stretch of a body part that causes swelling and pain but not a fracture or dislocation.

You normally sprain your joints so your elbow, wrist, knee and ankle. So examples of expressions can be like this,

"I sprained my ankle playing football."

"While I was walking down the stairs I sprained me knee."

"I would drive to work but I sprained my wrist so now I have to take the bus."

Just a few examples but as long as it is to do with an injured joint, that is t fractured or dislocated, you can use the word sprain.

I hope this helps!

Synonyms of "Sprained" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between sprained ankle and twisted ankle ?
A: If you "twist" your ankle, it usually means you've just hurt it in some way after it has been violently twisted (e.g. while playing sport). If you actually "sprain" your ankle, it means you've torn or stretched ligaments in your ankle.

Generally, I've heard people use them interchangeably, so in informal speech they mean similar things. However, technically they are different.
