Sprains and Strains Treatment
What it is
Sprains and strains are ligaments and muscle injuries that frequently affect ankles, shoulders, calfs, groins and thighs, and use to produce pain and stiffness. One of the more common cases is the ankle. In most cases, the ankle twists inwards (injury by inversion) and small ligamental tears take place, making the ankle unstable. This tear produces inflammation, swelling and hematoma around the ankle, making it difficult to sustain body weight on the joint. Strains may cause damage in ligaments, tendons and muscles.
How To Treat Sprains and Strains
If we are dealing with a recently produced sprain, the application of Capenergy in athermic format is highly recommended: it accelerates the inflammation reabsorption and reduces pain up to the point of allowing sports practice 48 hours after therapy. This effect is extremely important for high level professional athletes, because it speeds up their return to sports practise. In chronic sprains, improvement is seen between the first and fifth session of treatment, according to the injury degree.
