Sprains and Strains

Sprains and strains result from stretched tissues. A sprain involved a damaged ligament. A strain is a similar injury but involves muscles or tendons. Sprains and strains can be extremely painful and often take longer to recover from then bone breaks. Signs of strains and sprains include soreness, stiffness, swelling and tenderness.

Since sprains and strains are soft tissue injuries, chiropractic care can be very effective in treatment of the stretched tissues. Several studies have been conducted that have concluded that chiropractic care was as effective as anti-inflammatory medication in reducing swelling. However, chiropractic care was more effective than anti-inflammatory medication in improving range of motion.

Sprains and strains can be debilitating and frustrating and should be addressed immediately so that chronic problems do not persist.
