How Can Our Chiropractor Help with Pulled Muscles?

When you have back or neck pain, you know chiropractic care can relieve pain. However, did you know that chiropractors can treat pulled muscles? Our chiropractic team at Multicare Health Clinic can provide relief for a pulled muscle. Want to find out how?

What Is a Pulled Muscle?

A pulled muscle, also called a torn muscle, happens when you tear your muscle or tendon. When you stretch your muscle beyond its limit, it may tear. Torn muscles are common among athletes who subject their bodies to overexertion. However, you may also pull a muscle while doing house or school chores. It only takes an awkward twist or lifting something incorrectly to tear your muscle.

How Do I Know If I Have Pulled Muscle?

We all don’t experience similar symptoms after pulling a muscle. The symptoms depend on the cause and extent of muscle damage. The common symptoms of pulled muscles include those listed below.

  • Swelling
  • Limited mobility
  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Bruising
  • Muscle weakness

If you experience symptoms of a pulled muscle, don’t live with it. These symptoms make treating your injury difficult. Instead, book an appointment with our chiropractor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

How Can Our Chiropractor Treat Pulled Muscles?

Spinal manipulation is the first treatment we administer for pulled muscles. This treatment aligns your spine by reducing pressure on the nerves. When your nervous system is functioning optimally, it provides whole-body healing.

Physical therapy also helps reduce muscle tension. Massage therapy relaxes tense muscles to reduce pain and restore mobility. Besides, chiropractic exercises help strengthen your muscles to provide resilience against future injuries.

Depending on the extent of your damage, your treatment may need five to eight chiropractic care sessions. However, some patients often find relief after one or two sessions. Our chiropractor will guide you on the number of sessions needed to restore your total health.
