Our physicians prescribe physiotherapy to treat the injury and reduce your pain. Our Hollywood muscle strains treatment focuses on relaxing the muscles to relieve pain and tightness, rehabilitate the area, and strengthen the affected areas. We believe in a holistic approach, focusing on healing current injuries and preventing future re-injury.

Understanding Muscle Strains, Symptoms, and Treatment
Our physicians understand muscle strains, how they happen, and how limiting they can be. We know that a nagging injury or acute pain can cause you to limit your activities, including missing work, sports, exercise, and hobbies. There are two ways muscles strains can occur:
- Sudden incidents: Muscle strains often occur because of sudden adverse events, such as car accidents and falls. These injuries can cause swelling, pain, and stiffness.
- Repeated exposure: Repetitive motion injuries can lead to chronic muscle strains. They can also occur when the sufferer does not rest and rehabilitate following an acute injury. These injuries lead to pain, loss of strength, and a reduced range of motion. They can also cause other problems when the sufferer favors the injured side.
The treatment for these injuries varies depending on their location, cause, age, and other factors. Our physicians create a unique plan for each patient, so you can receive treatments and therapies that meet your specific needs.
Let the Specific Care Chiropractic Team Help With Your Hollywood Muscle Strain
The Specific Care Chiropractic team provides a thorough initial assessment for every new patient. We call these “intake exams.” You can expect to answer some questions about your injury, your health history, your symptoms, treatments, any medications, and more. You may also undergo medical imaging scans and other tests.
We need to have a strong understanding of your injuries and symptoms so we can create a treatment plan to address them. The prescribed adjustments and therapies will be unique to your muscle strain. Throughout your treatment, we will continue to assess your progress and needs. Your plan will change as necessary to ensure we continue to help you as much as possible.
We believe in a holistic approach to any musculoskeletal injury. Yes, we want to eliminate your pain and address your injuries. But we also want to help you build strength, increase flexibility, and improve your overall health and wellness to reduce the risk of injuries in the future.
Our Hollywood Muscle Strains Treatment Options
As noted, our prescribed treatment plans for muscle strains generally focus on our physiotherapy services. Our therapists provide a range of treatments and support for patients to help them recover from these injuries. Your treatment options could comprise:
Our therapists create a program to help you address your injury, regain strength, and improve your range of motion. We also teach patients important skills that can help them reduce the risk of injuring the same muscles later, such as proper lifting or squatting techniques.
Stretching and Strengthening Therapies
After your injuries improve and your pain decreases, our team will create a plan for your ongoing care. It allows you to grow beyond your previous condition, building strength and flexibility through stretching and strength exercises. Again, this is important in improving your overall health and reducing the risk of future injuries.
Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to help muscles relax and regenerate. It is commonly used for sports injuries, including muscle strains. It allows for deeper muscle penetration than massages alone.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (E-STIM) Therapy
E-STIM uses an electrical current to heal your injured muscles. This treatment stimulates the muscle to promote healing. It also increases blood flow in the affected area, which can reduce numbness and swelling.
Many people seem shocked when we prescribe massage therapy to address their muscle strain. Yet, we often see significant benefits for our patients. It helps relax tight, tense muscles. It also increases blood flow to the area, which promotes healing.
In some cases, chiropractic care may also help. Our physicians can prescribe the necessary adjustments to help alleviate some of your pain and promote proper alignment. We often recommend and offer chiropractic care to people with chronic muscle soreness in their hips, back, shoulders, and neck.
Turn to Our Physiotherapists for Help with Your Hollywood Muscle Strain
Acute muscle strains can cause intense pain and stop you in your tracks. Unfortunately, these injuries often occur in athletes and those who perform physical labor for a living. When you have an acute injury, you will likely need rest initially. However, our treatments may get you back to your normal activities sooner than relying on bedrest alone.
When it comes to chronic muscle strains, our therapies and strength-building exercises can reduce your pain, heal the injury, and hopefully prevent further issues. We can often begin treatment for these injuries right away. Your treatment plan could comprise rehabilitation, massage, or other therapies that loosen muscles and help them relax.
If you do not yet have a diagnosis but believe you have a muscle strain, our physicians can help. Let us assess your injury during your initial intake exam, and we can create an individualized plan for treatment and support.
