Sprains and Strains


 

Sprains and strains of the back are a very common occurrence in adults. In fact, statistics show that three out of four adults have suffered one or the other. Sprains occur when the ligaments that hold together bone and muscle are stretched too far or tear. Strains occur when a muscle or tendon is torn or overstretched. You can experience either one by playing sports, lifting something that is too heavy, or bending or twisting without stretching first. Usually, pain from a sprain or strain is aching or sharp, but it can also be burning, tingling, dull, or stabbing. To treat your sprain or strain, heat or cold therapy may be used to relieve pain and help the tissues relax. Furthermore, we also use chiropractic spinal adjustments to make sure your back is properly aligned.
