Successful Treatment of Sprain/Strain in Spine After Car Accident
Sprain refers to injuries of ligaments that hold the bones together at the joint. Strain refers to injuries of a muscle or tendon. Tendon connects muscles and bones. Strains and sprains are the most common injuries occurring to athletes and anyone everyday. Sprains most likely happen at the ankles, wrists, and knees including Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)/Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL). Strains occur most often in the muscles and tendons of the legs and back. Hamstring pulls, groin pulls, and sore back muscles are common forms of strain.
1) A first-degree sprain or muscle strain is the least severe damage with stretching of ligaments or muscle fibers. Pain and swelling are minimal. Range of motion usually is not affected to any important degree. First-degree muscle strains, ankle sprains and other sprains in acute conditions can be healed in less than 2 days or even overnight with treatment of a single herbal patch applied to the injured area.
2) In a second-degree sprain or muscle strain, the muscle and ligament have been torn and partially ruptured. There is more pain and edema, bruising, and range of motion is reduced significantly. It usually takes 2 to 3 weeks to have any improvement in the pain and swelling. However, with treatment of 2 herbal patches, second-degree muscle tears, ankle sprains, ACL/MCL tears, AC joint separations that are in acute conditions can be healed in 5 days.
3) In third-degree injury, the muscles, tendons, and ligaments tissues have been ruptured completely and surgery may be necessary to repair damaged tissue.
A male patient, age 42, suffered low back pain as a result of a car accident. A sprain (as a ligament) and a strain (as a tendon) in L1/S5 had been diagnosed (between the sacrum and the fit lumber). The low back pain was so bad that the patient walked in with canes.
Dr. Lambert decided to apply a combined treatment program of four sessions composed of adjustments and herbal patches. The patient would come in for treatment once a week.
After completing the four week program the patient was completely normalized. The symptoms had been eliminated and no additional maintenance was needed. The results have been sustained ever since (treatment was provided in 2009). The patient has been playing softball again. From a practitioners standpoint the results of the treatment have been absolutely stunning given the conditions shown by the patient before the treatment.
