Sprains Strains Injury Treatment in Portland OR

When you are injured, it can disrupt your whole life, causing you to miss work or school and even forcing you to cancel social plans. At Columbia Clinic, we are dedicated to helping you recover from your non-life-threatening injuries. If you are suffering from a sprain or strain, come to one of our convenient locations in Portland and get back to 100% as quickly as possible.

Sprains and strains are very common injuries.  The signs and symptoms of both are very similar, but each term refers to a different part of the body. A sprain involves a tearing or stretching of the ligaments. A ligament is a tough band of fibrous tissue that connects together two bones in a joint.  Sprains are most common in the ankles but can happen in other joints of the body as well. A strain is the tearing or stretching of a muscle or tendon. A tendon is a fibrous cord of tissue that connects bone to muscle.  Strains are most common in the back and thigh but can happen elsewhere in the body as well.

Some symptoms of sprains and strains include pain, swelling, bruising, and limited mobility. Strains may also include muscle spasms. If the pain does not go away soon after it is first noticed, you should certainly seek the help of a medical professional to properly diagnose and assess the extent of your injury. At Columbia Clinic, we are fully capable of diagnosing and treating your sprains and strains.  Your doctor will check for tenderness and swelling in the affected area and may manipulate your body into different positions in order to pinpoint the exact ligament, muscle, or tendon that has suffered the injury. We also have digital x-ray services available on-site to help diagnose your injuries if there is concern that you may have more than just a strain.  If you do have a fracture, we are also able to help treat that as well.

While sprains and strains do affect different parts of the body, the first step in treating them is often the same. Initial treatment for both is typically abbreviated as RICE, an acronym that stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Some pain medication may also be recommended, especially ibuprofen which will help with pain as well as inflammation or acetaminophen. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may also be required to wear a brace or splint to immobilize the injured area while it heals. In very severe cases, surgery may be required to repair a torn ligament or ruptured muscle, and physical therapy may be necessary following surgery to regain full function and mobility.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, Columbia Clinic can help diagnose and treat the affected area and help get you back to yourself as quickly as possible. We look forward to serving you.
