Unfortunately, yes, you can sprain your neck very easily. You can turn your head too sharly and sprain it. But it depends on an individuals general state of health and fitness, how delicate their body is.

How do you do treat a torn ligament in the elbow?

The R.I.C.E method. No, not rice! Rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Don't use your sprain unless you have to. Put some ice on it, it'll feel better n no time. Compress the sprain by wrapping it in an elastic bandage. This will help support it, so it doesn't move and put more strain on the sprain. Elevate it on a cushion or pillow, as to keep the sprain above the patient's heart if at all possible. And by the way, a torn ligament and a sprain are the same thing! So, hopefully this will help with your torn ligament (sprain). while i agree with most of the above answer, the statement about a sprain and a torn ligament being the same are not. it depends on the severity of the sprain. a grade 1 sprain may have overstretched the ligament where a grade 2 has actually torn the ligament so that part is inaccurate. just thought i would add that extra information since i recently suffered a grade 3 strain (torn ligament) that required surgery!
