The ankle sprain (I): The ligaments

The ankle sprain (I): The ligaments

The ligaments are elements that  help us to hold the articulations to prevent them moving in addresses in those that doesn’t have to make it.

In the mobile articulations the bone doesn’t hold the contact area totally with the other bone to allow the displacement and this way is able to carry out the movements.

The most mobile articulations are at the same time the most unstable (that is to say, those that less subject they are) and this gives cause to that in the movements the articulations can be come out of their place.

To hold the articulations without impeding the mobility of the bones we have these reinforced with the ligaments that are tapes of fibrous fabric that fix in the addresses in those that it could separate the articulation.

They have very little elasticity or any, and this it is an essential aspect so that they can complete their function of limit of the movements.

It not only prevents that the articulation moves for non wanted addresses, but rather they limit to the width of the movements of the articulation to maintain them inside the physiologic limits.

In this sense the ligaments receive information of the brain to perceive and to control the movements.

The ligaments receive the sanguine watering what will benefit their regeneration.

They are more important in the articulations of more mobility, as the shoulder and the hip that can be mobilized in the three plans of the space for example.

It will continue
