While a pulled muscle is not usually a serious injury, it can still cause serious pain. Many traditional doctors will instruct you to wait out the pain, but a chiropractor can use natural techniques to help your body heal faster from a pulled muscle. At East Lake Chiropractic and Medical Center in Saint Cloud, we're here to help you handle the pain of a pulled muscle while helping your body start the natural healing process.
A pulled muscle is a strain or tear of the muscle tissue inside your body typically caused by an injury. Sometimes, symptoms of pulled muscles set in immediately after the injury. Other times, it can take anywhere from a few hours or a few days for symptoms to begin. Many people experience pulled muscles in the neck, shoulders, and thighs. Symptoms of a pulled muscle can include a limited range of motion, pain in the affected area, and pain that radiates away from the pulled muscle.
When you come in for your first appointment at East Lake Chiropractic and Medical Center, our chiropractor will examine your injury and talk to you about how your pulled muscle occurred. From there, we'll develop a treatment plan to help you get well. Many patients find success using a variety of modalities of treatment, including lifestyle changes, medical massage, hot/cold therapy, spinal adjustment, and more. As you heal, we'll revisit your treatment plan at each appointment and make adjustments as necessary.
