Sprains & Strains

If you’ve ever participated in a sport, it’s likely that you’ve sustained a sprain/strain injury. Sprains are tears in the ligaments, whereas strains are tears in the muscles. While most of these injuries heal with rest, ice, compression, and elevation (R.I.C.E.), some can linger for long periods of time. If conservative home treatments and massage are not sufficient, chiropractic is the answer for you. If the muscles have tensed up considerably, they can actually pull the bone and joints out of alignment. When this happens, the bone becomes “stuck” and can irritate the nerve. The nerve then reacts by causing a muscle spasm and a subluxation complex occurs. Chiropractors not only help calm the muscles down with soft tissue release, we use specific adjustments to move the joints back into place. Just like braces for your teeth, the corrections do not occur overnight. It may take several adjustments until the correction holds in place. The proper treatment schedule is designed to help strengthen the muscles to allow for proper correction and injury prevention.

Concussion is defined as a complex pathophysiological process affecting the brain induced by traumatic biomechanical forces. Several common features that incorporate that may be utilized in defining the nature of a concussive head injury include:

  • A direct blow to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body with an ‘‘impulsive’’ force transmitted to the head.
  • Rapid onset of short- lived impairment of neurologic function that resolves spontaneously (loss of consciousness, cognitive changes, behavioral changes, sleep disturbances)
  • A graded set of clinical symptoms that may or may not involve loss of consciousness. Resolution of the clinical and cognitive symptoms typically follows a sequential course. However it is important to note that in a small percentage of cases, post-concussive symptoms may be prolonged.
  • No abnormality on standard structural neuroimaging studies is seen in concussions.
