Pain Management for Muscle Strain & Tension

Muscle strain or tension is often an uncomfortable problem that develops from improper posture, lifting heavy objects incorrectly, or prolonged muscular stress. Muscle fibers overexert themselves beyond their limits, leading to pain and discomfort resulting from overexerting themselves beyond what can be sustained without pain relief strategies; the purpose of this article is, therefore, to offer ways in which noninvasive and therapeutic interventions could provide such relief.

Muscle strain or tension can result in localized discomfort, stiffness, and reduced range of motion in various locations – typically the neck, shoulders, upper back, and lower back.

Causes of Muscle Strain or Tension

Muscle strain or tension, an increasingly prevalent source of discomfort, may result from various activities or situations that overexert or strain muscles beyond their usual capacity. A leading contributor may include improper posture that places undue strain on specific muscle groups; lifting heavy objects with improper techniques; sudden, forceful lifting actions may all contribute to muscle tension, as can lifting objects with incorrect techniques; prolonged muscular stress due to repetitive motions or prolonged periods of physical activity can also exacerbate strain or tension symptoms.

Muscle strain or tension is made worse by several factors, including dehydration – as adequately-hydrated muscles are less vulnerable to injury – inadequate warm-up and stretching before physical activities may heighten the risk, poor conditioning, lack of regular exercise, and muscle imbalances further compound the issue. Recognizing specific pain patterns and symptoms is crucial when diagnosing muscle tension; localized discomfort, stiffness, or soreness in particular muscle groups and sharp, acute pain, depending on its extent, can indicate muscle strain or stress.

How Can We Treat Muscle Strain or Tension

Muscle strain or tension frequently results from poor posture, incorrect heavy lifting techniques, or prolonged muscular stress. At TRI Physical Therapy in New York City, our specialists specialize in relieving upper back pain caused by muscle tension or strain with proven effective alternatives to surgery or post-op recovery modalities – pain management, range restoration, and education on avoiding future discomfort recurrences are our key priorities.

Our customized treatment plans incorporate several pain relief solutions explicitly designed to target discomfort caused by muscle strain or tension:

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Cell Therapy

PRP therapy uses your platelets to activate cells in surrounding tissues, decreasing inflammation while stimulating healing processes and encouraging tissue repair.

Intra-Articular Laser Therapy

Intra-Articular Laser Therapy penetrates deeply into skin layers to reach joints or spinal discs for relief, often combined with PRP therapy as part of your treatment plan.

Spinal and Joint Manipulation

Our physical therapists utilize orthopedic manipulation techniques to mobilize joints at various degrees for pain relief, frequently indicating reduced pain levels.


Advanced prolotherapy techniques involve injecting dextrose solution directly into muscles or joints for controlled inflammation to increase blood flow, clear damaged cells away, and facilitate fast tissue regeneration.

Laser Therapy

Administered by our physical therapists using handheld laser devices, laser therapy effectively relieves back discomfort caused by injured muscles or bones.

Spinal Cord Stimulator

The spinal cord stimulator device surgically implants mild electric currents beneath the skin to compete with pain signals in the spinal cord and alleviate them to achieve at least 50% less discomfort, improving daily living capabilities and lessening dependency on painkillers. The goal is a substantial decrease in chronic pain by at least 50%, thus enhancing daily functions while decreasing dependence upon such medication.


One form of traditional Chinese medicine that’s highly effective at relieving pain is Acupuncture, with its thin needles strategically inserted through the skin to stimulate muscles and tissues and promote the release of natural painkillers within your body.

Homeopathic Trigger Point Injections

 As an alternative to opioid medication, homeopathic trigger point injections utilize natural solutions injected directly into trigger points or acupuncture points in your body to stimulate biological healing mechanisms and foster tissue regeneration.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy activates cell division in injured or weak areas to decrease pain while strengthening and rejuvenating muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, and cartilage.

Neural Therapy

With its focus on correcting disturbances to your autonomic nervous system, neural therapy brings balance back into your body’s electrical systems.

TECAR Therapy

 TECAR Therapy noninvasive radio-frequency treatment generates heat within your body to stimulate natural healing processes and bolster biological defense mechanisms.
