Both in the home and in the workplace it is easy to get a distortion. It is one of the most frequent accidents that can happen, so you need to know how to behave and what is the best natural remedy. The aloe vera wrap for the distortions is a real life saver, thanks to the gel extracted from the leaves of the plant of Aloe barbadensis Mille, the joint will heal faster.
What is a distortion?
When we talk about sprains or dislocations we refer to the stretching, or in severe cases to rupture, of the ligament that joins the bone to the fibrous tissue of an articulation. The joints most at risk are the ankles, wrists and knees, as they are in exposed areas of the body. Among the most common causes that cause distortion we have:
- Exaggerated torsion of the joint due to sudden movements
- Lifting weights over the limit
- Accidental falls
Depending on the size of the case, the damage may be more or less serious. The symptomatology is easy to distinguish. According to the triggering cause of the distortion, the first sensation that is felt is that of more or less intense intestinal pain depending on the event. Pain manifests in a localized spot or in a much larger area. In a second phase the edema will appear, that is a swelling of the affected area in which there is the release of liquids inside the tissues that surround the joint, causing swelling. From here the inflammatory process starts. The area that has undergone distortion will be very hot due to the leakage of liquid, and will appear red.
How to use aloe vera
Aloe vera gel acts in three ways against distortions:
- It reduces the sensation of heat and reddening of the area, thanks to its anti-inflammatory action
- Speeds up the tissue healing process
- It fades pain
It is very important to use only pure aloe vera gel, untreated and not mixed with synthetic ingredients. The more pure the gel the more the natural remedy will be effective.
Making an aloe vera wrap is very simple. Just spread on the painful joint with a lot of delicacy 10 ml of aloe vera and bandage the distortion with a gauze, leaving on for 20 minutes. This application should be done twice a day, morning and evening. It will not be necessary to rinse the skin.
