Muscle Strain Treatment in Calgary, AB

Receive High quality Muscle Strain Treatment from Experienced Physiotherapists

Sprain and strains are common injuries caused by falls, twists, lifting heavy weights, or playing sports. While these can be treated at home with over-the-counter medications, visiting a physiotherapist is essential to ensure appropriate treatment and care. 

At Radiant Physiotherapy Clinic, our compassionate and well-trained physiotherapists will thoroughly assess your condition and develop the high quality treatment routine to address your pain and prevent any future injuries.

Common Sprain and Strain Injuries

A sprain or strain can cause:

  • Damage to the soft tissues, such as muscles, ligaments, and tendons
  • Swollen muscles
  • Achilles tendonitis (inflamed Achilles tendon that connects the calf muscle to the heel bone)
  • Muscle cramps and weakness

Benefit from Physiotherapy for Sprain and Strains

Generally, sprains and strains can take some time to heal and may change the dynamics of the joint or muscle, thus increasing the risk of re-injury. However, with physiotherapy, you can effectively treat such conditions while reducing your chances of getting injured again.

Physiotherapy treatment will help improve the strength, flexibility, and mobility of the affected joint or muscle, making it stronger than it was. It will also reduce the consequences of sprain and strains, including joint stiffness, pain, muscle spasms, and inflammation.

Physiotherapy Treatments for Sprain and Strains

At Radiant Physiotherapy Clinic, we offer the following physical therapies to treat sprain and strains:

Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques, such as mobilization and manipulation, are used to reduce pain and myofascial restrictions, diagnose and treat soft tissues injuries, ease swelling and inflammation, and improve range of motion.

Exercise Therapy: Includes a regimen of personalized physical activities to help you recover from injuries, get rid of muscle imbalance, and achieve enhanced flexibility and range of motion.

Dry Needling: A fine needle is inserted into the skin to create a cut or lesion, which activates tissue remodeling, increases blood circulation, reduces pain and inflammation, and decreases tissue tension.

Massage Therapy: Your body’s soft tissues and muscles are manipulated to reduce stress, anxiety, and muscular stiffness. We offer various massage therapies, including deep tissue massage, reflexology, Swedish massage, and myotherapy.

Stability Exercises: Recommended to strengthen your core muscles (abdominal muscles, hip muscles, pelvic muscles, and spinal muscles) that help maintain your spine alignment and improve stability and movement.
