Pulled Muscle in Back
A pulled muscle is an injury in which the muscle fibers tear apart, causing intense pain. Muscle fibers contain the contractile part of the muscle. The back has a variety of muscles running in various directions up and down and across the trunk of the body. The interconnection of muscles, nerves, ligaments, bones, and tendons makes it possible to bend, sit, stand, breathe, and initiate other movements.
When any muscle in the back is pulled or strained, it affects all movement. The lower back is designed to move in many directions, and the upper back functions mostly for structural support. For that reason, treatment of any pulled back muscle should begin immediately following onset. Many therapists recommend Ultrasound Therapy, such as our Personal Therapeutic Ultrasound System to enhance the natural healing process through the use of therapeutic soundwave technology.
Pulled muscles in the back are not typically known to cause chronic pain. The pain is usually acute and goes away with proper treatment. If pain from a pulled muscle continues for several days, it might be an indication that more damage (such as a ruptured disc) has occurred. In that case, imaging diagnostics such as an MRI or CT scanning may be necessary to confirm or rule out spinal disc damage.
Many chiropractors, doctors, and physical therapists recommend the use of Ultrasound Therapy for pulled back muscles. Our Portable Therapeutic Ultrasound System has received recognition as a safe and effective medical device for personal home use.
An Inferno Wrap Energy Device for the back is one of the most helpful tools for a wide variety of painful back-related problems. Through the use of the patented Energy Web, muscles are safely and gently heated- increasing oxygen and nutrient rich blood flow within the treated area. Your body's natural response to this increased temperature is to try to maintain a condition of "homeostasis" in a balanced environment (basically, your body increases blood flow to the heated area in an attempt to drop the temperature). With the rapid increase in blood flow to the area (a term known as vasodilation), there is an increase in the supply of oxygen and nutrients to injured cells, and toxins are flushed out (including lactic acid, commonly found in trigger points)- both of which promote healing. Our Inferno Wrap for the Back provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no side effects.
Our Cold Compression Wraps are recommended as a top therapeutic wrap by Leading Health Institutes like the Cleveland Clinic, several professional sports organizations, and countless medical professionals. That's why we sell them- they are the best money can buy! They work to numb nerves, which will dull the pain in your aching muscles. We have noticed over time that our customers are so fond of our "Freezie" Cold Compression Wraps that they are frequently coming back and ordering a second one- this way, they can have a spare frozen one in the freezer while wearing the other. "Freezie" Wraps are becoming very popular with baseball and soccer trainers, and the wraps can be conveniently stored in a cooler for quick application on the field when needed.
Ultrasound Therapy is also a helpful tool for pain treatment, muscle relaxation, and prevention of back problems- having a portable Ultrasound device at home is a powerful, effective, and convenient treatment tool. If you have symptoms, or are recovering from a back related injury, using Ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity or throughout the day will help relax your muscles, diminish pain and inflammation, soften any scar tissue build-up, and contribute greatly to the healing of your injury.
If you suffer from muscle pain after certain activities or movements, use Ultrasound Therapy when you complete the activity, and then rest. Limit the application of Ultrasound to a couple of treatments per day (the manual which comes with the unit will recommend treatment frequency depending on your injury/condition). In between Ultrasound treatments, maximize your pain relief and injury recovery time by using the Inferno Wrap. Proven Performance, Proven Relief - only found at MendMeShop.com! If you have been given a treatment plan by your healthcare professional, make sure you adhere to it to ensure pain free living. Ask your healthcare professional about how you can add MendMeShop products to your treatment routine! In general, people who are committed to their therapies and exercises will have the best medical outcomes.
