East Detroit MI Chiropractor Minimizes Back Discomfort
We take extra pride in helping patients relieve their back pain. We have developed many strategies which work in unison to help relieve your pain. Our chiropractors have found the first step to effectively reliving back pain is a through understanding of the what is causing the low back pain. Probably the single greatest anatomy involved in pain from the lower back is the inter spinal facets joints.
A complete understanding of the origin of the nerves and the types of tissue damage is essential to the relief of low back pain. Our East Detroit MI chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. On many occasions we will employ two or more therapies to attack two different origins of back pain.
One of the more effective forms of treatment for the relief of back pain is a therapy called muscle stimulation. Muscle stimulation treatment is often used as a combined form of therapy for the relief of back pain. 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. Inflammation is the body’s way of healing yet the damaged cells release fluid into the tissue which irritates nerve endings causing pain. The pads of the electrical muscle stimulation therapy can be placed as such that when the current is applied the fluid in the cells is essentially washed away.
One of the most common and overlooked forms of back pain relief used in our East Detroit MI chiropractic practice is a cryopack. 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 The ice pack or cold pack has two benefits in minimizing low back pain. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. When the nerve conduction velocity is reduced the pain signal is reduced. Reducing the inflammatory response will decrease the irritants which cause the pain signal.
Our chiropractors in East Detroit MI may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current as a form of treatment for back pain relief has been used for years on athletes for the sole purpose of stopping pain. The mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. To maximize the effectiveness of the therapy it is important to consider the relationship of pad placement along with which modified current to use to relieve back pain.
A distinctive form of treatment to relieve sciatica by our East Detroit MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a form of manual therapy which uses the nerves of the opposing muscle group to decrease in their signal intensity. The principle of peripheral neurological facilitation is when the body contracts one muscle it reduces the signal sent to the opposing muscle group. This form of therapy uses the body’s own defense mechanisms against itself to help the body heal itself. Peripheral neurological facilitation is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
