Treating Sprains, Strains, Bursitis and Tendonitis
Strains and sprains are sources of pain that chiropractors are adept at treating.
Part of a total health treatment
Active lifestyles can often lead to the occasional strain or sprain due to over-exertion or acute impact in a contact sport or personal injury. Similarly inactive lifestyles can lead to sprains or strains from the weekend warrior effect, over using an ill functioning or weakened muscle. A doctor of chiropractic can treat the affected soft-tissue around the injured joint. Some types of therapy that may be utilized are physiotherapeutic modalities and myofascial therapy. If the injury becomes chronic other more extensive treatments may be employed and include exercise and joint mobilization. Even nutrition recommendations can benefit sprain/strain and tendon injuries.
If you've experienced a sprain or strain or injury to a tendon in the shoulder or arm or leg and would like to schedule a consultation, please contact us.
