East Detroit Michigan Chiropractic Office Alleviates Back Pain
You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. The best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
Any of the many tissues of the body in the lower back can result in back pain however the pain itself is either from direct damage to the nerves in the tissue or inflammation causing nerve irritation. Our East Detroit Michigan chiropractors attention will focus on the damaged tissue and from that point determine what therapy would be the most effective for the relief of your back pain. Some therapies we will use to decrease the inflammation while other therapies are used to reduce muscle spasms or block the painful nerve signal.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in East Detroit Michigan use to relieve back pain is call electrical muscle stimulation therapy or EMS. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has many applications for the use of relieving low back pain. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. The second method of relieving back pain using electrical muscle stimulation is to reduce the inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s way of healing yet the damaged cells release fluid into the tissue which irritates nerve endings causing pain. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
One of the most common and overlooked forms of back pain relief used in our East Detroit MI chiropractic office is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. The cold pack wrapped in a moist cloth has two important properties which aid in the reduction of pain and inflammation. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. Reducing the inflammatory response will decrease the irritants which cause the pain signal.
Our chiropractors in East Detroit Michigan may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. This is a form of mild electrical current specifically designed to mix the pain signal and thereby reducing the pain. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. When using interferential current it is important to using the pad placement and modified current as a concurrent method of low back pain relief.
A specific form of therapy to relieve back ache by our East Detroit MI 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 reason for this is so the opposing muscle group is not contracting at the same time which will cause an injury. Peripheral neurological facilitation is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
