If you’re suffering from pain related to a pulled muscle, you may be wondering how a chiropractor can help you. While chiropractors are well known for treating back pain, there are other maladies that can be treated by a chiropractor, such as a pulled muscle. Come and visit Dr. Michael Druzbik at Druzbik Family Chiropractic in Statesville, NC, to see how we can help.
When you arrive for your visit with our chiropractor, we will take an assessment of your physical condition and formulate a treatment plan. There are a few techniques that can be employed to treat your pulled muscle, and they include:
Massage Therapy: Using precise techniques, we can help increase blood flow to the injured area to promote healing, reduce pain, and decrease inflammation.
Cold and Heat Therapy: Applying cold therapy eases the constriction of blood vessels, which can help reduce pain and swelling. Heat therapy is applied after cold therapy, and it helps improve blood flow, thereby increasing the flow of oxygen to the muscles that are injured. The application of heat can also minimize stiff muscles and aid in improving mobility.
Physical Therapy: Once the pulled muscle starts to heal, our chiropractor can give you several exercises to do to strengthen the muscle and improve your movement.
If you’re suffering from a pulled muscle, we invite you to reach out to us for a consultation. We offer online appointment scheduling and electronic forms for our patients’ convenience.
