for Common Injuries  

ANKLE SPRAIN


A sprained ankle is one of the most common injuries in the U.S., and they typically happen due to rolling, twisting or turning the ankle beyond its normal range of motion. Athletes and non-athletes alike suffer from high ankle sprains every day. To fully understand an ankle injury, we’ll first take a look at the physiology of the foot and ankle.

Your ankle is composed of various ligaments, including the ATFL and the CFL, which aid in stabilizing the connection of the tibia to the fibula. A sprained ankle develops when those ligaments are stretched beyond their limits or torn.

The most common injury is an inversion ankle sprain, meaning the foot rolls inward and underneath the ankle joint. No matter how it happened, the treatment is universal and highly depends on the severity of your ankle sprain. Many of the symptoms of all ankle sprains involve ankle swelling, tenderness, reduced ankle mobility and partial breakage of the above ligaments.

HAMSTRING PAIN


Hamstring pain is often caused by hamstring strains, which are both common and painful. The hamstring is made up of a group of three muscles that run along the back of the thigh. They allow you to bend your leg at the knee.

When you have a hamstring strain, one or more of these muscles gets overloaded. The muscles might even start to tear. You're likely to get a hamstring strain during activities that involve a lot of running and jumping or sudden stopping and starting.

SHIN SPLINTS


Shin splints, medically known as medial tibial stress syndrome, refer to pain along the shin bone, or the tibia, — the large bone in the front of your lower leg.

Shin splints are common in runners and dancer and often occur in athletes who have recently intensified or changed their training routines. . The increased activity overworks the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue.

GROIN PULL


The Groin is a junctional region consisting of the lower abdomen and thigh on either side of the pubic bone. Also referred to as the inguinal region of the body, the groin muscles are composed of the iliopsoas, rectus femoris, and the entire adductor group located on the inner thigh. Groin strains happen when there is overactivity of the those muscles, typically due to overstretching, injury or tearing the adductor longus.

A groin strain often occurs when a muscle is required to both contract and lengthen at the same time. The stress of this activity and these movements is what typically causes injury to the groin muscle. Groin pain may be difficult to pinpoint and diagnose due to the wide range of inner thigh muscles and nerves that pass through the area stemming from the spinal cord.

KNEE PAIN


Knee pain is a common injury that happens when there is a sudden injury, overuse injury, or an underlying condition. When pain in the knee is experienced, is may be due to a sprain in the stabilizing ligaments or there may be a minor injury to the menisci which can still cause severe knee pain and swelling.

The bones that make up the knee joint include the end of the femur, tibia, and fibula. The stabilizing ligaments for this region include both the medial and lateral collateral ligaments as well as the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments. There are also two c-shaped meniscus' within the knee joint that serve as shock absorbers. The main muscles surrounding the knee include the hamstrings, the quadriceps and the gastrocnemius.

ELBOW PAIN


Your elbow is a joint formed where three bones come together — the upper arm bone, called the humerus, the ulna and the radius, the two bones that make up your forearm. Each bone has cartilage on the end, which helps them slide against each other and absorb shocks, and they're lashed into place with ligaments. The tendons connect the bones to muscles and allow you to move your arms in different ways. If anything happens to any of these parts or to the nerves and blood vessels around them, it may cause you pain.

SHOULDER PAIN


What we often refer to as just "the shoulder" is really several joints that combine with tendons and muscles to allow a wide range of motion in the arm. That mobility, however, can lead to problems with instability or impingement of the soft tissue or bony structures in the shoulder, resulting in pain. Maybe you only feel pain only when you move your shoulder, or maybe you feel it all of the time. The pain may be temporary or it may continue. Muscle Lab is here to take that pain away!

LOWER BACK PAIN


Suffering from lower back pain is common among people of all ages — whether you play sports, lift weights, suffer an injury or simply have muscle tension. Low back pain stems from a variety of causes. We'll firstly take a look at the muscle groups that are causing you discomfort.

Your back is composed of many muscles that aid in helping the spine adequately function. We will take a closer look at extensor muscles, flexor muscles and oblique muscles since injury to these generally leads to low back pain. We must also note that various ligaments and nerves run through this area that may be associated with muscle pain. Knowing your low back pain is the first step towards treating your low back pain!

WRIST PAIN


Wrist pain is usually a result of sprains or fractures from sudden injuries. Wrist pain can also be caused from long-term issues, like repetitive stress, arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. The exact location of your wrist pain can help provide a better understanding to what's causing your symptoms.

Wrist pain symptoms can vary depending on what is causing it. For example, osteoarthritis pain is often described as being similar to a dull toothache. Meanwhile, carpal tunnel syndrome can cause a pins-and-needles feeling or a tingling sensation in the hand and wrist, especially at night.

MUSCLE RECOVERY SERVICES

WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY


Rejuvenate your body, skin, and mind. Muscle Lab offers the best Whole Body Cryotherapy chamber in Los Angeles with extreme cold temperature reaching -220 degrees.

Cryotherapy has been a popular recovery technique for sore muscles and it works better and faster than icing. Cryotherapy before or after a workout has a handful of benefits, and they include: weight loss, reduced inflammation, stress, anxiety, depression and increased energy, sleep, immune function.

LOCALIZED CRYOTHERAPY


Don’t feel like hopping in the full body cryo? Try Muscle Lab's local cryotherapy that targets specific muscles and joints.

Localized cryotherapy is designed to focus the benefits of cryotherapy on one specific area of the body. Cryotherapy works better and faster than icing. The benefits of localized cryotherapy include reducing pain and inflammation of an injury without the risk of getting frostbite as you would from icing alone. Unlike icing, nothing but cold nitrogen air is directly touching the skin, allowing the healing to begin from the inside out.

Localized cryotherapy takes about 10-12 minutes per area, whereas icing would take over 30. Local cryo is also a great introduction to cryotherapy if you’re having a hard time going into the whole body cryo chamber. At Muscle Lab, we offer both options.

INFRARED SAUNA


Take advantage of the Muscle Lab Infrared Sauna and enjoy benefits such as relaxation, detoxification, and weight loss. The Infrared Sauna relieves sore muscles, reduces stress and fatigue, helps with muscle aches, treats arthritis and joint pain, and promotes weight loss.

Muscle Lab offers 30 and 60 minute Infrared Sauna sessions and recommends to take advantage of hot and cold therapy with a cryotherapy session for maximum pain relief.

IV THERAPY


Get Hydrated. Muscle Lab has developed four IV therapy cocktails that are delivered directly into your bloodstream to ensure absorption and in turn provide instant relief and benefits. They include: Hydration IV Vitamin Drip, Recovery IV Vitamin Drip, NAD + Vitamin Drip, and the Vitality IV Vitamin Drip.

IV Therapy is used to recharge fluids and electrolytes but also has a number of other benefits: enhance muscle growth, reduce migraines, increase athletic performance, treat arthritic pain, enhance mood, and speed up your metabolism.

NORMATEC COMPRESSION THERAPY


Lay down and relax at Muscle Lab with a whole or lower body compression suit that rejuvenates your muscles. Normatec Compression Therapy is designed in a specific pattern to maximize healthy blood circulation and extract lactic acid through the lymphatic system. Athletes swear by this recovery method.

The benefits of Normatec Compression Therapy include increased mobility, reduction in swelling and inflammation, preventing and reducing soreness, and increasing blood circulation.

The air compression starts at the feet, followed by the shins all the way up to the quads. This circulation of blood flow allows the swelling and inflammation to go down. Whether you have swelling from an injury, a workout, or from standing on your feet all day, compression therapy will do the trick. The compression boots also have a hip and arms attachment so all soreness can be treated. Compression therapy mainly reduces recovery time, which can help keep you on track with your health goals.

CUPPING THERAPY


Cupping therapy is the practice of applying suction to the body to promote optimal recovery and maintain high performance levels. It originates from traditional Chinese medicine that uses glass or plastic cups to create inverted pressure and suction that pulls the treated tissue and skin in order to bring blood to the surface and expel negative energies from the body. It is typically seen performed on larger muscle groups that tend to undergo hyperactivation or over use, but it can be used on any part of the body. Cupping therapy can promote cell repair, improve blood flow, relieve pain and tension, improve posture, reduce cellulite and stimulate the body’s “qi” or natural energy flow.

CBD MASSAGE


Enjoy a CBD Infused massage to rejuvenate your muscles with a Muscle Lab therapist.

STRETCH THERAPY


Get a full body stretch by a Muscle Lab therapist and relieve soreness as you improve flexibility, range of motion, physical performance. Stretch Therapy is similar to a massage as it targets the parts of your body that need healing and tension relief. But unlike a massage, the Stretch Therapy involves a wide variety of techniques, including foam rolling, myofascial release, and active range of motion movements, in addition to traditional passive stretching and massaging.

Our Muscle Lab stretch therapist will move your body into postures and positions that stretch specific muscle groups that need a little extra attention. The therapist will focus on movements that target the muscles and connective tissue around your joints. The stretching techniques used at Muscle Lab can help improve posture and mobility by putting you in positions that test your maximal range of motion, which isn’t possible to reach on your own. Assisted stretching decreases pain and stress by elongating muscles to help with blood flow and to improve overall movement. Stretch Therapy can also decrease the risk of injury, improve flexibility and accelerate performance.

Book an appointment today with the best massage therapists in the Los Angeles area. Muscle Lab offers a 50-minute full body Stretch Therapy session, a 30-minute focused Stretch Therapy session, and Stretch Therapy packages at a discounted rated.

THERAGUN MASSAGE


A Theragun Massage is a deep muscle treatment that can accelerate recovery and repair your body.

The Theragun is a massage gun that looks (and sounds) like a power drill and uses percussive therapy to treat muscle soreness and relieve pain. The massage gun has increasingly been used by (and found effective for) everyone – from professional athletes to weekend warriors and everyone in between. It’s like a deep tissue massage with a more concentrated focus on the muscle group that needs the most attention.

The Theragun Massage will help relieve sore muscles, reduce migraines, increase athletic performance, treat arthritic pain, decrease inflammation, enhance mood, boost collagen, reduce cellulite, and improve immunity.

Muscle Lab has a variety of options: Theragun Massage Single Session; a Theragun Massage Combo, which includes a stretch session and Theragun Massage; or a Theragun Massage Pack that lets you load up on Theragun sessions that never expire and are offered at a discounted price. Say goodbye to tight muscles!

CRYO FACIAL


Muscle Lab’s Cryo Facial is the quickest form of anti-aging in the market. The localized cryotherapy machine sets the perfect and safest temperature designed for the sensitive skin on the face.

The Cryo Facial is known for allowing the skin to build collagen, tightening pores, and reducing the visibility of wrinkles and dark under-eye circles. The results are shown instantly after just 1 session, but it is recommended to continue for optimal anti-aging results. A Cryo Facial is also recommended after an infrared sauna session for benefits of hot and cold therapy.

CRYO SLIMMING


Muscle Lab offers a revolutionary service called Cryo Slimming. Our Cryo Slimming machine uses hot and cold therapy to reduce and burn unwanted fat cells.

Cryo Slimming can be a helpful tool used to reduce inches while also exercising and eating healthy. Measurements will be taken before and after each session and results will be visible immediately. The great part about our cryo slimming machine is that it’s non-invasive, pain-free and doesn’t require surgery. Following the before and after care directions of our therapists will guarantee incredible results!

Treatments are done by applying sub zero temperatures to the fat layers through the skin to break down the unwanted fat cells. This allows your Muscle Lab therapist to contour and sculpt your body. The destroyed fat cells will then pass through your body's natural systems.

We recommend completing at least 5 cryo slimming sessions, but for optimal and more permanent results we recommend 10 sessions. The sessions should take place every 2 weeks per area to allow the body’s lymphatic system to recover. Lymphatic drainage services, such as compression therapy and infrared sauna sessions, are recommended in between cryo slimming sessions. Look and feel your best.

CRYPO TONING


Cryo Toning is a new non-invasive method of treating cellulite, promoting fat removal, skin tightening, anti-aging and muscle relaxing. Muscle Lab’s Cryo Toning machine targets visible cellulite and stretch marks, and tightens loose skin. The machine also enhances skin elasticity, which is key to young and healthy looking skin.

Cryo Toning uses cold temperature to reduce inflammation, increase collagen production and blood flow, and destroy fat cells. The treatments help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen and elastin production while tightening the muscles. The treatment will also help improve your microcirculation and speed up your metabolism, which results in higher collagen production.

We recommend at least 5 cryo toning sessions, but for optimal results we suggest 10 sessions. We suggest booking Cryo Toning sessions once a week per area, in order to allow time for your body to naturally flush out the dead fat cells and toxins.
