Sports Injuries, Sprains, Strains and Muscle Spasms

Your muscles and joints can suffer a great deal of pain if you fall prey to a sprain, strain or muscle spasm. If you know what causes these problems, and know how to prevent them, you can save yourself a lot of discomforts. Your chiropractor can help by correcting defects that cause your muscles to protect you by going into a painful spasm.

Sprain

You are hiking and step on a rock. Your ankle turns over and you feel a wrenching pain, but can still walk back to camp. The real pain comes later. This is a sprain.

A sprain occurs when the joint is forced to go beyond its normal range of motion. The ligament fibers over stretch and tear. This often happens with sudden twisting in active sports. With a sprain, the joint can still function, even though minute ligament tears leak blood into the tissue surrounding the joint, causing swelling and discomfort.

Back sprains are usually severe. Pain and motion in the lower back will often cause a muscle spasm. Acute sprains require the attention of a doctor.

 

Strain

If a muscle or tendon was injured when you stepped on that rock, you experienced a strain. Strains are not as serious as sprains. They often happen when you neglect to warm up your muscles before using them. Chronically strained muscles or ligaments can result from years of tension or misuse.

 

Spasm

You’ve been driving for two hours. You turn and reach for your hat in the back seat and whammy. Your lower back muscles on one side rebel and clamp down into a spasm.

A spasm is a sudden, forceful and sustained muscle contraction. It is usually caused by a direct trauma to the muscle, excessive exercise or chronic strain. You can tell when your muscle is in spasm. It bulges and is hard to the touch. The muscle is painful and feels tied in a knot. When you have a muscle spasm, all the fibers contract. With normal movement, only some of the fibers contract.

Muscles do two things. They contract and they relax. Muscles around the spine add protection. If you overwork them, the message from the nervous system to the muscle is to contract and protect. If something is wrong with the discs or facet joints, muscles go into spasm to hold everything in place, preventing further damage to the spine. A muscle in spasm serves as a splint, restricting a range of motion and friction upon joints. The protective spasm can be chronic. It can even be a cause of scoliosis, abnormal spinal curvature.

What You Can Do

  • Treat your muscles with the care and respect they deserve.
  • Keep them flexible with daily slow stretching.
  • Check with your chiropractor to correct any defects in joint mobility which might be causing your muscles to go into protective spasm.
  • Warm up your muscles and joints before exercise.
  • Stretch them out when you are through exercising.

Back and Neck Pain

Whiplash, Neck Pain, Arm Pain, Shoulder Pain

With summer coming on and the increase of automobiles on the highways, to say nothing of the usual congestion of our streets and freeways in normal traffic, whiplash neck injuries are fast becoming a major health problem. The increase of speed involved in freeway driving contributes to the growing incidence of the type of accident that can cause such injuries.

A panel of surgeons, who met under the auspices of the International College of Surgeons some time ago, reported that their studies of whiplash injuries established the fact that spinal cord and nerve roots frequently are injured without the injured person even being aware of it until perhaps several months or a year later. Pain symptoms at this time begin to develop.

These pain symptoms, neck pain, arm pain, shoulder pain, headaches, that develop much later than the incident seldom are connected with the forgotten whiplash that may have occurred when one automobile bumped the back of another. And unfortunately, by then the lapse of time has nullified the automobile insurance that would have covered all the cost of correcting the spine, and the victim must pay for this expense himself. The misalignment of the vertebrae is also known as subluxation

See your Doctor of Chiropractic when such an incident occurs to you. With the chiropractor’s greater knowledge of the importance of the spine and its alignment – and the awareness of the significance of even minute changes in this alignment – chiropractor is best equipped to discover and correct the damage caused by whiplash injuries. And your insurance would cover the proper time element for early diagnosis treatment.
