Injury-Related Pain

A muscle strain or a sprain can be a minor injury, but sprains and strains can also be so severe that they require weeks or months of physical therapy to overcome. Left untreated, these types of injuries can lead to chronic pain. 

Sprains – injuries to the ligaments that connect the bones – can feel as painful as fractures. A strain is an injury to a muscle, or to the tissue that connects the muscle to bone, and it’s one of the most common types of back injury.

Center for Pain Management has treated many patients whose chronic pain was the result of a previous injury. If you have a recent injury that’s causing moderate to severe pain, swelling, and immobility, please contact us to ask about treatment options: (317) 706-7246.

Effects of Untreated Injuries

Untreated injuries can cause a variety of other problems, such as: 

  • Muscle loss and weakness
  • Gait abnormalities (associated with ankle sprains and lower back injuries)
  • Scar tissue buildup 
  • Sprains/overuse injuries in other muscles/ligaments
  • Loss of mobility

Early treatment of injuries is the best way to avoid additional complications.

Treatment for Injury-Related Pain

Initial treatment for injury-related pain may include elevation, compression, and medication, and physical therapy is usually necessary for severe sprains and strains.
