Physical Therapy for Pain Relief

Our team at Unruh Spine Centers treats a diverse range of sports injuries, including sprains. These injuries are incredibly common, particularly among athletes, and most commonly affect the ankles. Other common sprain locations include the knees, wrists, and thumbs.

At Unruh Spine Centers, we focus on pain management and restoring proper function of sprained joints. We can help you get back on your feet so you can resume your normal physical activities as quickly and safely as possible.

What Are Sprains?

Sprains are one of the most frequently suffered injuries in the U.S., and roughly 25,000 people sprain their ankle every day nationwide. These common injuries occur because of the natural limitations of the body’s ligaments, which are the fibrous tissues that connect two bones together at the joints. If the ligaments are overextended, they will become torn or injured and result in sprains. Actions that might cause this include landing awkwardly from a jump, pivoting too quickly, or landing on an outstretched wrist. Similar mishaps can result in strains, which involve injuries to the muscles or tendons. The severity of sprains and strains can range from mild to severe depending on the damage done.

If you are experiencing the following symptoms, you may have a sprain or strain:

  • Pain and swelling at the affected joint
  • Bruising at the affected joint
  • Instability of the joint
  • Hearing and/or feeling a popping sound at the time of injury

How Can Chiropractic Care Help with My Sprain?

If you have experienced a sprain, it’s important to practice “RICE” – rest, ice, compression, and elevation of the injured area. Mild sprains may be treatable at home without medical intervention, but chiropractic care will retrain the joints to function and move optimally, making it a successful way to accelerate sprain healing.

The mission of our chiropractic practice is to treat disorders of the joints, muscles, and ligaments. If you have a sprain, we can help by gently manipulating the joint to relieve pain and ensure the injury heals properly. This will enable you to return to your active lifestyle as soon as possible. We also utilize safe and effective laser therapy to speed up the healing of a sprain, as well as shockwave therapy to blast out any calcification of injured ligaments, which allows you to heal naturally.
