Sprains and Strains
By far, the most common injury we see in our office are sprains and strains.
Sprains and strains have a wide range, anywhere from a simple muscle strain as a result of overexertion to a torn and damaged ligament in a joint that can leave someone permanently disabled. These types of injuries are connective tissue injuries. They can be extremely painful and often take longer to recover from than bone breaks. Signs of sprains and strains include soreness, stiffness, swelling and tenderness.
Since sprains and strains are soft tissue injuries, chiropractic care can be very effective in the treatment of the stretched tissues. The goal of treatment is to maintain normal function during the healing process. This functional care is important for the damaged and injured tissues because poor healing can lead to altered joint mechanics and future problems. Several studies show that chiropractic care is as effective as anti-inflammatory medication for the reduction of swelling; additionally, chiropractic care is more effective than anti-inflammatory medication for improving range of motion.
We offer many treatments that not only effectively relieve pain and soreness from sprains and strains but also help to restore function to injured and damaged connective tissue. The following are just a few of the treatment options we offer:
- Chiropractic Adjustments ~ relieves pain, improves biomechanics and restores normal function by activating the nervous system
- Myofascial Release and Graston Technique ~ improves tissue healing and helps maintain normal tissue structure during the healing process
- Many Physiotherapies ~ reduces pain and inflammation
- Low Level Laser Therapy ~ promotes tissue healing
- Rehabilitative Exercises ~ helps restore function and promotes proper healing
