Understanding Sprains and Strains
Sprains and strains are painful injuries that involve tears or stretches to ligaments and tissues. Sprains affect bands of tissue that connect two bones, while strains affect muscles or bands of tissue that connect a muscle to a bone. Each is often compounded by severe stress to a joint. The body parts most susceptible to sprains or strains include ankles, knees, wrists, and thumbs. These injuries can occur as a result of walking on uneven surfaces, landing awkwardly or falling, pivoting sharply, or various other scenarios involving uninviting environmental conditions, fatigue, and inadequate equipment. In addition to pain, sprains and strains can cause inflammation and sometimes bruising in the affected area. If left untreated, the injury can worsen, making it more difficult to move. But chiropractic care from Effective Integrative Healthcare can mitigate the issue and help you return to normal activities quickly.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Sprains and Strains
Individuals who suffer from sprains and strains rely on chiropractic care for quick pain relief, but its benefits do not stop there. An effective, integrative approach to treatment for sprains and strains will also strengthen the areas surrounding the injury site. Because sprains and strains involve the stretching or tearing of ligaments and tissues, sufferers are vulnerable to more injuries in the future. The tissues weaken with every injury, so the likelihood of additional sprains and strains increases every time. But chiropractic care can help reinforce or support those tissues to decrease the chances of future injury. The experts at Effective Integrative Healthcare are happy to provide each of our patients with quick, long-lasting relief.
Treatment Options for Sprains and Strains
The goals of Effective Integrative Healthcare’s professionals as they relate to sprains and strains include quick relief from pain and prevention from future injuries. To help ensure we accomplish both objectives, we utilize an integrative approach to treatment that may comprise several therapies and methods. Our treatment plans may include:
- Chiropractic Care – Our team of chiropractors can manipulate areas affected by sprains or strains to reduce pain, improve or restore motion, and decrease protective muscle spasms.
- Massage Therapy – The massage therapists at Effective Integrative Healthcare can improve blood circulation while increasing flexibility and mobility to shorten recovery time and reduce pain.
- Acupuncture – An ancient practice designed to promote healing, acupuncture involves strategically placing medical-grade needles into patients’ bodies to enhance blood flow and release pain-reducing hormones.
- Physical Therapy – We can help sprain or strain sufferers train their bodies to move in ways that reduce the chance of injury recurrence. Physical therapy also helps improve balance and range of motion and serves as a progressive healing measure.
- Trigger Point Injections – By injecting an anti-inflammatory drug called Sarapin into patients’ trigger points, we can relieve tension in muscles and tissues.
