Muscle injuries are fairly common, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be painful. The Pain Management Center offers muscle injury treatments to help patients find relief during the healing process. We are proud to serve the residents of Voorhees, Linwood and Hamilton, NJ.
What Are Muscle Injuries?
Muscle injuries are common injuries that happen when people suffer from overuse complications or other injuries. The most prevalent types of muscle injuries are called muscle sprains or muscle strains. When a tendon or muscle is torn or stretched, it is said to be a muscle strain injury. When a ligament is torn or stretched, it is said to be a muscle sprain. Both types of muscle injuries can produce pain and other symptoms. Muscle injuries typically need time and rest to heal, but some patients may choose to pursue muscle injury treatment to relieve pain during the healing process.
How Are Muscle Injuries Treated?
The treatment for muscle injuries will vary depending on the location of your injury and its severity. When you come in for your initial appointment at The Pain Management Center, we will assess your condition to determine the treatment approach that will be most effective. In most cases, self-care can be successful in relieving symptoms. Using ice and heat, taking anti-inflammatory medications, and stretching can all contribute to reduced pain and aid in the healing process. In some cases, we may recommend trigger point injections or other therapies. These techniques will be used to reduce your pain levels so you are able to return to normal activities and resume other forms of therapy.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Muscle Injury Treatment?
The results from your muscle injury treatment will depend on the treatment method used as well as the extent of your symptoms. Some of our treatments may be able to provide long-lasting relief, while others may need to be repeated on a regular basis to maintain your results. During your initial visit, we will discuss your condition and your treatment goals in order to define the results that you can expect from your muscle injury treatment.
