Sprains and Strains in Morganville, NJ
Dr. Sharon Barnum: A & A Chiropractic

Sprains and strains are usually minor injuries that often result from auto accidents, work related injuries, sports, exercise, or other physical activity. Sprains refer to an injury to a ligament (the connective tissue that links bones together at joints). Sprains happen most often in the ankle, knee, elbow, or wrist. Strains are tears in muscle tissue and can affect daily routines. They happen most often in the muscles that support the calf, thigh, groin, and shoulder.

When you visit a chiropractor to recover from a sprain or strain, they will assess your injury and develop a treatment plan. The goal of treatment is to always return the patient to their previous level of function before the injury occurred.  There are three grades of sprains and strains: mild, moderate or severe.  These injuries can range from a slight tearing of the muscle to a complete tear of the ligament.  Depending on the grade of injury, additional treatment may be necessary.

Common signs of a sprain or strain:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Limited mobility
  • Muscle spasms

How chiropractic care can help:

Gentle manipulation helps relieve pain and ensures the injury heals properly, reducing the time it takes for you to resume your active lifestyle. Treatment methods such as soft tissue massage, stretches and exercises, cold and heat therapy and physical rehabilitation can help relieve pain effectively.

I’ve had lower back issues from a herniated disc for about 7 years. I went to see Dr. Barnum about 6 weeks ago after not getting the results I wanted from other chiropractors. Dr. Barnum is very thorough and detailed in her assessment and care. I love the fact that she stresses preventive care (strengthening and stretching) along with medical treatments. I haven’t felt this pain free in years. She is easy to get ahold of and even made sure there was another doctor available when she was on vacation. I will continue to see Dr. Barnum and highly recommend her services. I couldn’t not be happier.

Dr Barnum is outstanding doctor. Easy to talk to. She really cares about her patients. One of my issues was that I could not move my neck. Within a a few weeks with Dr Barnum I had full range of motion. I highly recommend Dr Barnum.

I originally sent into see Dr Sharon for my physical for my CDL, after dealing with her and the professional treatment I received. I noticed that She is a Chiropractor , after talking with her about a 3 month treatment with another chiropractor for a injury to my neck and lower back and being in pain for years ,we agreed to give her a shot after 3 visits I’m a believer and I will never go elsewhere , Kathy at the front desk is amazing to deal with .If you have any issues this is the the only place for treatment, thank you for the amazing experience see you Friday.
