In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.
Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. We are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries as quickly as possible. Unfortunately it is currently taking a little longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow 2-3 working days for shipment.
Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

These joints are surrounded by ligaments, which are also tough, fibrous bands of connective tissue that allow the joint to move in specific directions. Ligaments connect the end of one bone to another bone and are anchored to bone on each side of the joint.
A Sprain occurs when a ligament is stretched or torn. A ligament can be injured by being stretched during a sudden pull, which can cause swelling, inflammation and bleeding (bruising) around the affected joint and movement of the joint is painful. The severity of the muscle sprain is graded as follows:
The first symptom is always pain. It indicates that there is something wrong with the body and sends a message to the brain that a muscle or joint should be protected from further harm.
The next symptoms are swelling and spasms which can take time to develop (from minutes to hours). Swelling almost always occurs with any injury and when fibres of a ligament, muscle or tendon are damaged, bleeding occurs.
Due to the pain and swelling, the body starts to favour the injured part, which can cause surrounding muscles to go into spasm. You may also be able to feel hard knots of muscle near the injured area. This combination of pain, swelling and spasm causes the body to further protect the injured part, resulting in difficulty with use.
