If you have been experiencing pain after a car accident, slip and fall, or while playing sports, you may have suffered a muscle strain. When your muscle or tendon is stretched too much, it becomes strained from the stress.
Our team at Specific Care Chiropractic is here to help you recover from injuries that caused your muscle strain. If you are seeking North Lauderdale muscle strains treatment, our facility can serve you. We design customized physiotherapy and chiropractic treatment plans to help you heal at your own pace.
How Do Muscle Strains Occur?
Most of us think of sports-related muscle strains from intense sports like football or hockey. However, you can strain muscles even while playing ‘mild’ sports like golf. Muscle strains can also happen when picking up heavy objects or doing repetitive actions on your job, like twisting, pulling, or gripping.
Muscle strains from car accidents are also common. During a collision, your body’s muscles may tense up instinctually. Unfortunately, this intense muscle tightening can cause severe strains that may lead to chronic pain and further injury if left untreated.
Are There Different Kinds of Muscle Strains?
As Mayo Clinic outlines, here are two kinds of muscle strains:
Acute Muscle Strains
Acute muscle strains stem from a single event. For example, you may have accidentally lifted a heavy box or piece of furniture using your back muscles instead of your legs. This action can tax your muscles, resulting in a strain.
Chronic Muscle Strains
If you do the same motions over and over, this repetitive motion may cause your muscles to become strained. For example, this is a common injury for factory and construction workers who often perform repetitive tasks involving heavy lifting. Professional athletes experience this as well.
How Do Muscle Strains Heal?
The most important thing you can do to heal from a muscle strain is to give it time. As your muscles heal, you can slowly start to go back to your regular daily activities.
At Specific Care Chiropractic, we monitor your recovery and recommend specific exercises to support your recovery progress. Our goal is for you to get back to doing the activities you enjoyed before your injury.
How We Treat Muscle Strain Injuries
At Specific Care Chiropractic, we start your treatment with an assessment. We want to know how you sustained your injury so we can design our treatment around your unique needs. Your injury affected specific parts of your body and muscles, and your rehabilitation plan will take those details into account.
When you visit our North Lauderdale chiropractic office, we can use X-rays and other tests to find out how severe your injury is. If your back is misaligned, we may treat you with a combination of physical therapy techniques and chiropractic adjustments.

How Effective Is Chiropractic Care for Muscle Strains?

In the study, patients suffering from acute strain saw their discomfort reduced by 66.8%. Patients suffering from chronic pain saw their discomfort decline by 56.5%.

Specific Care Chiropractic Can Work With Your Personal Injury Attorney
Did you injure yourself while at work? If so, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation from your employer. We can work with your attorney to build your workers’ compensation claim. Alternatively, if a negligent third party caused your injury, we can work with your lawyer to build a personal injury case against them.
Filing claims and lawsuits based on injuries requires a lot of evidence, including proof of your injuries and necessary treatment. If you are a patient at Specific Care Chiropractic, we are happy to provide your attorney with the medical records you need to establish your case. Some of the information we can provide your legal team includes:
- An assessment of your injuries
- Records of your injury, including X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and other scans
- An analysis of your injury’s treatment needs
- Possible complications you may experience during your recovery
- Invoices outlining your current and possible future treatment expenses related to your injury
Before releasing these records to your attorney, we will require you to sign a medical release form. We will be happy to discuss these details with you and answer any questions at your first appointment. We also have a referral network of qualified personal injury lawyers in our service area if you need an attorney for your case.
