Strains and Sprains Q&A
How do Strains and Sprains happen?
Strains and sprains can occur due to various reasons, including:
- Sports or physical activities: Engaging in sports, exercise, or any vigorous physical activity can put stress on muscles, tendons, and ligaments, making them more prone to strains and sprains.
- Accidents and falls: Trips, slips, or falls can lead to sudden twists, impacts, or awkward movements, causing strains or sprains.
- Poor posture and ergonomics: Maintaining improper posture while sitting, standing, or performing tasks can strain muscles and ligaments over time, increasing the risk of injury.
- Repetitive motions: Repeatedly performing the same movement or action can strain muscles and overwork ligaments, eventually leading to strains or sprains.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to treating strains and sprains that focuses on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Chiropractors are trained in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal conditions, including strains and sprains, using non-invasive techniques. Here’s how chiropractic care can benefit you:
- Pain management: Chiropractors employ various techniques, such as spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and mobilization, to reduce pain and inflammation associated with strains and sprains. These gentle manipulations help restore proper alignment, alleviate muscle tension, and promote healing.
- Enhanced mobility: Chiropractic care aims to improve joint function and mobility. By addressing the underlying misalignments or imbalances, chiropractors can help restore normal range of motion and flexibility, allowing you to regain mobility and perform daily activities without limitations.
- Preventing chronic conditions: When strains and sprains are not properly treated, they can lead to chronic pain, muscle imbalances, and compensatory movement patterns. Chiropractic care focuses on correcting these issues, reducing the risk of chronic conditions and promoting long-term musculoskeletal health.
How long does it take to recover from strains and sprains with chiropractic care?
The recovery time can vary depending on the severity of the injury and individual
After a couple of months of suffering and pain, I decided to look for a Chiro practitioner, and my search began. My prolonged working hours, late-night, and preparing for school work in front of the system for hours together had made my posture wrong, increased inflammation and stiffness around my neck and shoulders. Due to this, I was living in tremendous pain, sometimes to the extent that I couldn’t even move my neck. My friends also warned me that when identifying a Chiro, one should be careful. Else it can backfire. After looking around, I zeroed down on Regenesys, seeing their 5-star google reviews, and of course, my prime consideration was within 3 miles. And on my first visit, I realized that what I thought was 3 miles turned out to be 13 miles 🙁 which was kind of an initial disappoint and worry for me. Will I be able to come for my entire treatment or lose motivation consistently? But my first interaction with Lauren and Dr. Wilson clarified that doubt immediately. Lauren was super patient with her questions and detailed list of issues faced by me. Dr. Wilson was spot on in his diagnosis and crisp in his plan. Then came into play my sticking to the plan, which was the biggest challenge. Alexa and Kelly made sure I didn’t miss a single session. With my work and school, and kids’ schedule in mind, there were many instances when I had to reschedule my appointments, but they were just brilliant. They would call me back meticulously, so I never I to worry about an appointment. Then came my actual physiotherapy with Barbie for a brief period and Mike for the most. Mike, by merely looking at you could tell the stiffness and immediately help you overcome that. Physio sessions were enjoyable with his sense of humor. And my other favorite is Bri, who is so so good with her massage therapy. All in all, I went there in tremendous pain and walked out after eight-plus weeks with absolutely no pain at all. Dr. Wilson indeed has one of the best teams with him. Kudos to this high on empathy team. I would highly recommend this place.
