East Detroit Michigan Doctor of Chiropractic Alleviates Back Pain
When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your back pain. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back pain. Prior to the application of therapy to relieve back pain an understanding of the tissue causing the pain is necessary. One of the single greatest factors which cause back pain is an injury to the disc.
Back pain can be attributed to several tissues however the pain itself is typically form direct nerve damage in the tissue or inflammation of the tissue. Our East Detroit Michigan chiropractors attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the back pain. We have found when we use therapies which reduce tissue inflammation, decrease the nerve conduction pain signal and reduce associated muscles we have significant effect in relieving back pain.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Muscle stimulation therapy is used for a variety of conditions on our office due to the variety of effects. First it can be used as a nerve block to reduce or block the nerve signal. Another benefit to using muscle stimulation therapy for the relief of back pain is for reducing inflammation. The inflammatory process is needed for tissue repair to begin however the cellular fluid of the inflammatory process irritates the nerves causing pain. The combination of pulsed electrical muscle stimulation therapy along with proper pad placement can significantly help in the reduction of inflammation and therefore pain.
There is a common household product we use in our East Detroit MI chiropractic office is a cold pack. Applying a cold pack wrapped in a luke warm cloth and applied over the painful area for twenty to thirty minutes is effective for the reduction of pain and inflammation A cold pack will have two physiological effects in reducing back pain. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. By reducing the inflammation it helps decrease the fluid in the tissues which are irritants to the nerves causing back pain.
Our chiropractors in East Detroit MI also may use a therapy called interferential current. Interferential current is a form of electrical current with a modified frequency which has shown to reduce the pain signal. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. The combination of pad placement and modulated current work in unison for the reduction of back pain.
A fantastic form of treatment to relieve back ache by our East Detroit Michigan chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a manual form of treatment which uses the nervous system reflexes to inhibit the pain signal Peripheral neurological facilitation treatment uses the opposing nerves and the natural reflexes of the body to decrease muscle tension and reduce pain. The nerves of opposing muscle groups will naturally relax when the opposite muscle group is contracted which is a natural process we use to help relieve pain. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
