Muscle strains are injuries that occur in the muscle or tendon, in that the muscle or tendon becomes overstretched, causing it to strain under the stress. Common causes for muscle strains include:
- Sports activities, e.g., basketball, golf, or football
- Lifting or pulling heavy objects
- Performing repetitive actions that put stress on the muscle, such as twisting, jumping, gripping, and throwing
If you or a loved one strained a muscle in an accident or while playing sports, our team at Specific Care Chiropractic wants to help you recover from your injury. We offer muscle strains treatment in Coral Springs and provide our patients the resources they need to strengthen their muscles at a safe pace throughout their rehabilitation.

Muscle Strains Can Be Acute or Chronic Depending on Lifestyle
Muscle strains can fall into two categories:
Acute Muscle Strains
These injuries are related to a specific event. The patient put too much stress on their muscles by accident, causing the strain. A common example is when a person lifts a heavy object from the ground using improper posture.
Chronic Muscle Strains
These injuries involve repetitive stress on the same muscle, sometimes resulting in repetitive injuries because the same actions were taken. Athletes and labor workers often suffer from chronic muscle strains due to their work or lifestyle demands.
If you strained your muscle, it is crucial to allow yourself time to properly heal from the injury so that you can safely return to regular activities.
Our physicians can monitor your recovery and teach exercises that you can practice at home as your muscles regain strength, flexibility, and functionality. We want to help you reach your physical goals so that you can enjoy life the way you want to live it.
Our Chiropractors Use Various Techniques to Treat Muscle Strain Injuries
When you come in for an appointment at Specific Care Chiropractic, we will ask about how you sustained the muscle strain so that we can cater our treatment to your physical needs. Where your injury is located and what parts of the body it affects will also be factored into your treatment plan when you visit us in Coral Springs.
Depending on whether your muscle strain is also associated with a misalignment in your back, we may combine chiropractic adjustment and physical therapy techniques to treat you. Our physicians will discuss what procedures they will perform after conducting diagnostic tests, such as X-rays, to gauge the severity of your muscle strain.
Chiropractic and Physiotherapy Treatments We Offer
At Specific Care Chiropractic, we provide the following types of treatments:
- Chiropractic adjustments and corrective care
- Massage therapy
- Stretching and strengthening exercise regimens
- Rehabilitative therapy in our Rehab Room
- Ultrasound therapy
- Electrical muscle stimulation (E-STIM) therapy
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that patients who underwent chiropractic treatment for muscle strains in the neck and lower back reduced the pain they felt significantly whether the strain was acute (reduced pain severity by 66%) or chronic (reduced pain severity by 56%).
We Can Provide Medical Information to Your Lawyer
If you or a loved one sprained a muscle during an accident at work, you may be entitled to pursue workers’ compensation through your employer. Many of our patients work with attorneys to help them build their workers’ compensation claims. Alternatively, if a negligent party caused your muscle strain, you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against them.
When building a legal case, it can be difficult to organize the necessary materials. However, if you become our patient and inform us about the case, we are more than happy to work with your lawyer and provide relevant information, such as:
- A detailed analysis of your muscle strain and any other injuries you have might have
- Images of your injuries, such as from X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans that we request
- Statements on what kind of treatment your injury needs and for how long
- Statements on whether you might experience complications or obstacles during rehabilitation
- Invoices that detail the cost of your current and future chiropractic treatment
You will have to sign a medical release form that permits your attorney to receive this medical information. We can discuss this during your first appointment when getting to know the facts surrounding your injury. If you are interested in working with a lawyer but do not currently have one, we may be able to refer you to someone in our network.
