The difference between a sprain and a strain is that a sprain involves the ligaments and a strain involves the muscles.  They most often accompany each other and can occur as the result of a traumatic accident or from an overuse/repetitive motion injury. 

Signs and Symptoms:

Someone suffering from a sprain or a strain around the wrist will usually report pain immediately following a particular activity or motion and there will often be associated swelling of the involved structures.  The injured tissue will be extremely sensitive to palpation and any motion that involves using either the muscle or the ligament will create a sharp pain.  The most common way to injure these muscles and ligaments is by overloading the wrist joint and either forcing it beyond it's normal range of motion, or exceeding the strength of the ligaments and tendons that are being loaded. 


Conservative Chiropractic care can be extremely effective in healing the initial injury and by undergoing proper rehabilitation to prevent injury in the future. 

If you or someone you know is needlessly suffering from wrist pain due to a Sprain of the ligaments or a strain of the muscles, call Advanced Healthcare and have Dr. Pisarek develop a customized treatment protocol, without the use of drugs or surgery, and be on the road to living pain free today!

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
