Muscle Strains & Sprains

Muscle strains and sprains sound alike, but the reality is that they are very different. Sprains occur when a ligament is torn or stretched, while a strain happens when a muscle stretches or tears. Both can result in severe pain that limits your mobility and affects your daily activities. At Roselle Center for Healing in Fairfax, VA, we provide various treatments to alleviate your discomfort and help you heal fully.

Chiropractic Adjustments

When the spine is misaligned, it can put pressure on the surrounding soft tissues. Chiropractic adjustments help correct any misalignments to help the body work more efficiently and allow it to heal itself. Not only that, but the adjustments can prevent injuries from reoccurring.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture can be highly effective for strains, sprains, and sore soft tissues. During the treatment, thin needs are inserted into certain points of the body, which can reduce inflammation and help you feel your best.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy helps to reduce the soreness in the soft tissues. Depending on where the injury is, different massage techniques may be used. Some massages use deep pressure to reduce knots that can form in the soft tissue, while other types help the soft tissue relax and relieve pain.

Hot and Cold Packs

When you have a sprain or a strain, you may often use hot and cold packs for relief. The treatment helps to slow blood in the area, reduce any swelling or inflammation, and reduces pain.  

Therapeutic Exercises

Your personalized care plan may also consist of therapeutic exercises. Our chiropractors can teach you specific exercises that you can do at home to increase your strength, range of motion, and prevent further injury.
