Sprains are injuries where a ligament is stretched or torn within a joint. Common places you might have a sprain can include your ankle, knee and wrist.
In severe sprains, the ligaments can be partially or completely torn – sometimes leading to surgery. Treatment for sprains often involves rest and physical therapy.
Saltwater is especially good for sprains and muscle injuries as the saltwater loosens and relaxes the affected area.
Benefits for sprains
Saltwater has been used for centuries to treat many diseases. In ancient Greece, for example, saltwater baths were often used for problem skin, rheumatic pain and muscular problems.
Whether you want to eliminate muscle pain, relax or temper diseases, saltwater baths are a blessing for the body. The skin will absorb minerals such as magnesium and potassium to remove toxins and balance the entire body.
