Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Sprained ankle. 81-year-old woman holding a cold compress to her sprained ankle. This is a gel pack compress, designed to be either cooled in a fridge or warmed with hot water. For a sprain, the gel pack is cooled and strapped to the affected joint. A sprain is an injury caused by excessive stretching of ligaments in a joint. Ankle sprains are usually due to twisting or rolling the ankle after landing awkwardly. Cooling the affected area helps reduce the swelling and pain.
