Sprains, Strains & Joint Pain

About this service

Sprains, strains and joint pain are very common. A sprain is a stretching or tearing of ligaments. A strain is usually referred to as a "pulled muscle." Back pain is one of the most common types of muscle strain. Joint pain is often caused by an injury to the tissue which connects bones. We can assess for injury and recommend treatments to help you heal and reduce pain.
