Sprains & Strains

Strains are minor injuries to the muscles. They usually occur in the calf, thigh, groin or shoulder and cause soreness and stiffness.

Sprains are similar to strains, but are more serious and painful and take longer to heal. They can entail damage to ligaments, tendons or muscles - usually those surrounding a joint.

 

Strains and sprains result from physical stress to the muscles and other tissues. Lifting a heavy object, using the muscles for long periods without resting, or overstretching before a physical workout can lead to a strain. Sprains, on the other hand, are the result of a sudden force to a muscle, tendon or ligament. Any unexpected movement, such as a fall or a twisiting motion, can yank and tear these structures.

 

A sprain or strain can create severe discomfort and affect mobility. Whatever the cause, natural therapies can go a long way to relieving the symptoms.

 

Applying ointments containing Arnica to sore muscles or joints to reduce pain and swelling and encourage healing.

 

Supplements for Sprains & Strains

 

Supplements – either taken internally or applied externally – can promote tissue repair, strengthen injured areas and reduce inflammation. They can be very effective at alleviating the symptoms of sprains and strains, and most need to be used only for a week or so or until the injury begins to improve.

A variety of oral supplements have been shown to speed up the healing process, and can all be taken in combination with conventional pain killers.

 

Bromelain (an enzyme derived from pineapple) may prevent swelling and reduce inflammation and so relieve pain. It also promotes blood circulation and hastens healing. Vitamin C and flavonoids can aid in healing, and in limiting further injury to connective tissues and muscles.

Glucosamine helps to strengthen and protect joints and ligaments by building up cartilage.

Turmeric is a remedy used externally or internally to relieve inflammation.

Gotu Kola improves healing by building connective tissue and improving blood flow.

Horse Chestnut is also useful in controlling inflammation.
