Providing High-Quality Treatment for Strains in Reno, NV
Have you been experiencing pain, swelling, weakness, and muscle spasms in a certain area of your body? Are you having trouble moving that body part? If so, you might have strained a muscle. Strains are similar to sprains — they both involve overstretching and tearing — but while sprains affect the ligaments, strains affect the muscles and tendons. Although strains can happen throughout the entire body, they most commonly occur in the neck, shoulders, lower back, and hamstrings. Fortunately, residents of the Reno, Nevada, area can turn to Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic for strain treatment.
How Do We Treat Strains?
In many cases, our skilled providers are able to treat strains using a combination of conservative treatments. These methods might include:
- Pain medication
- Periodic rest
- Physical therapy
With more severe strains — such as where there’s a complete tear in the muscle or tendon, or where conservative treatments aren’t providing relief — surgery may be necessary. If that’s the case for you, you can rest easy knowing that our full-service practice includes experienced surgeons who can handle your procedure. We even have physical and occupational therapists on site who can assist with your recovery.
