Sprains and Strains Treatment
If you develop a sprain or a strain, our team at Infinity Chiropractic Wellness Center, serving Red Bank and the nearby region, can assist. We would like to educate you about the potential symptoms of each one as well as the treatments so that you walk into our office feeling confident because you know exactly what to expect.
A strain is an injury that occurs when you overstretch a muscle or tendon. On the other hand, a sprain happens when you overstretch or tear a ligament. Regardless of the type of injury you have, it can vary in severity. You could either slightly stretch the tissue, partially tear it, or completely tear it.
While both issues may cause instant pain, the other symptoms may vary based on the condition. For instance, with a strain, you may experience tenderness along with that pain. You may also observe visible redness or bruising. Additionally, you might experience symptoms such as:
- Muscle spasms
- Limited motion in the affected body part
- Muscle weakness
On the other hand, if you have a sprain, you may suffer from similar symptoms to a strain, such as swelling, bruising, and limited movement in the affected joint. Furthermore, you might also hear a "popping" sound whenever the injury occurs. The most common areas for a sprain include the ankles, knees, wrists, or thumbs, whereas a strain is most likely to affect the lower back, quadriceps, or hamstrings.
How We Help
Our chiropractor specializes in sports injuries and can assist you if you have these issues, whether they stem from a sports injury or another personal injury. We can provide you with a thorough evaluation to determine if you indeed have a sprain or a strain and identify which one it is.
The next step in the process is to create a treatment plan for your sports injury or other injury. We will conduct sports rehabilitation or general rehabilitation to help alleviate your pain and facilitate your recovery. This will involve our practitioner guiding you through exercises that target the affected soft tissue. Your treatment plan will progress gradually to optimize your recovery.
Additionally, our general/sports injury chiropractor will provide you with information on how to prevent future injuries and offer suggestions for pain relief beyond your chiropractic treatment, such as utilizing hot and cold therapy.
