Back Injury Treatments

Correct diagnosis is key to help heal your body

A back injury can result from a fall, overuse, or muscle strain. Before beginning any back injury treatment, it's important to have an accurate diagnosis by a healthcare professional. In order to know the extent of damage or injury, it is often necessary to do some type of imaging studies. This may include an MRI, CT scanning, or other diagnostic procedures.

Conservative treatments such as physical therapy, comfort measures such as moist heat, and anti-inflammatory medications are usually the first back injury treatments to be initiated. It's important to keep the muscles active while not stressing them and causing more damage. This may be accomplished by doing a specific exercise routine established by your healthcare provider and physical therapist.

To enhance the healing process of an injured muscle, many chiropractors, physical therapists and healthcare providers use ultrasound therapy. An excellent tool to ultrasound immediately help reduce pain and inflammation when treating back injuries. The application of ultrasound over your affected area reduces swelling, increases blood flow, decreases pain, relieves tension making muscles and tendons more flexible, minimizes scar tissue, and helps your tendon tissues heal more quickly. It can be performed at home easily and safely with a portable ultrasound device.

Success Stories

Often people ice once or twice, rest a bit, then take some Advil or Tylenol and continue with their regular routine. If their injury was minor, their body may heal the soft tissues normally. Unfortunately, this is not the usual result. Because of the stress on the muscle and tendon, their body heals the injured fibers by binding them together with scar tissue. The trick to any tendon injury is getting it to heal with minimal scar tissue formation - something MendMeShop Ultrasound is great at! However, even with optimum healing there is always less elasticity in a previously injured tendon.
