You’ve recently sprained your ankle. Maybe you’ve lifted something too heavy and now your back has “gone out” with pain and muscle weakness. Sprains can also happen in your shoulders or arms as well as your legs. Dr. Ash, The Chiro Guy, can help you with sprain treatment options.
Sprains are commonly mislabeled- there are actually two kinds of injuries that can happen when you have symptoms we call a sprain: sprains and strains.
A sprain is a stretched or torn ligament, while a strain is a stretched or torn muscle or tendon. Both cause pain, swelling and trouble moving the affected joint.
Often doctors will just say that a sprain “needs time to heal” and won’t recommend much more than simple rest or icing. Chiropractic care is far more focused and works on a different level with your body.
Dr. Ash uses X-rays, technology and chiropractic care techniques to evaluate your joint alignment. Instead of just having your sprain or strain treated as a tissue problem, chiropractic care looks at the structure of your spine and joints to see if there are any underlying issues that may have led to your injury. He will also find any misalignments in your joints that may be aggravating your strain or sprain, addressing not just the immediate cause of pain but any weakness that could lead to a re-injury.
Cold Laser therapy to normalize damaged tissue, reducing pain and inflammation.
Acupuncture to improve circulation and speed up the healing process.
Exercises to gently improve range of motion as your sprain or strain heals.
Therapeutic massage to relax muscles and reduce stress.
