Chiropractic Care for Leg Injuries
Keeping active with chiropractic care!
Starting your program off on the right foot
Beginning a new exercise program is a good idea, but if you start developing problems like leg pain or shin splints, you risk further damage. Not only that, you may lose momentum for your new workout. "As a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, we help patients recover from injuries, and help develop healthy stretching programs for balance and flexibility" states Dr. Allen Conrad, BS, DC, CSCS.
As the owner of Montgomery County Chiropractic Center, we examine any injured areas, and help develop chiropractic care and therapeutic exercise program specific to your condition. Our goals for any injury is to help maintain flexibility and proper posture with balance training. Anytime you can improve these areas, your activities will seem easier to do, and will help reduce the chance of future injuries.
What is the first step?
Before starting a new exercise program, you need to identify your goals and find out what type of program is best suited for you. Are you looking to lose weight? Are you looking to tone up muscles, or improve muscle strength and endurance? Each goal has a different objective, so its important to make sure you are working smart, and doing the program which is best suited for what you want to accomplish. Our office will schedule an examination to determine if you have any injuries that may affect your program, and put you on the type of plan which points you in the right direction. If you suffer an injury, we are there to offer chiropractic care and flexibility training to help you get back to your activities as soon as possible.
How long does it take to see results?
Everyone wants to see results, but being patient is part of the process. If you are looking to lose weight, cutting back on calories and increasing your cardiovascular training on a progressive basis will help with weight loss. If strength is your goal, identifying which exercises and resistance is key. This is why getting a chiropractic evaluation is essential to see what is appropriate for you, and help reduce the chance of injuring yourself.
What happens if I get shin splints, back pain, or sciatica from walking?
If you get injured, a combination of chiropractic care, therapeutic exercise, electrical muscle stimulation and massage therapy will help improve muscle and tendon injuries. Dr. Allen Conrad is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of these injuries, and the faster you get an injury treated, the better the long term results. Call our office at (215) 628-2529 if you have any questions about walking pains or injuries. Montgomery County Chiropractic Center in North Wales Pennsylvania has been treating the Lansdale and Blue Bell Pa area for over 18 years, and we are happy to help you get back to your workouts.

Chiropractic care is an effective method of treating tendonitis. Find a local chiropractor in Blue Bell PA that treats tendonitis, and help avoid future problems. Tendonitis can be a very painful condition, which can affect your elbow, shoulder, knee, wrist or ankle most commonly. It can occur at any part of the body where a tendon attaches to a bone, but those are the most common locations. The pain is most commonly associated with overuse or a repetitive action of the associated tendon, but it can also be from a fall or an injury.
As with any injury, early detection of the condition will allow the fastest results, and this is the same for muscle and tendon injuries. When a muscle or tendon is irritated, the region may become sore, tender, inflamed, bruised and painful to touch. Commonly the area has a loss of range of motion, and possibly a loss of strength as well. Going to the doctor to treat tendonitis is very important because it is not usually an injury that resolves itself. The pain may go away while you stop performing that specific motion that makes it painful and sore, but as soon as you start doing that motion again, the tendon will begin to have the same symptoms again because it has not correctly healed. This is with various types of job descriptions, including carpenters, machinery workers, assembly line type jobs, and also sports related activities.
Treatment for tenonitis may include chiropractic adjustments to ensure that the associated region attached to the tendon is moving correctly, as well as various physical modalities that can help improve the healing rate of the injury. Some modalities that are effective for this type of injury include ultrasound.
Therapeutic ultrasound is a machine that is applied to the region with ultrasound gel, and moved around the area in little circles. The ultrasound wave transmits pulses into the region, helping break up swelling and spasm around the tendon.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation, or "muscle stim" is another method of treatment for tendonitis. Muscle stim is applied to the region with two pads that stick to the skin, and the muscle and tendon will contract very slightly to help the area relieve pain and spasm. This modality is usually performed while the patient relaxes, and is very effective for pain relief.
Therapeutic exercise is another modality used be the Doctor of Chiropractic for tendon and muscle injuries. Your doctor will put you on a program of stretching and exercise once they believe the tendon is ready, and help you build flexibility and strength on a progressive basis.
If you suffer from tendonitis, find a local chiropractor today and get an examination today.
