East Detroit Michigan Chiropractors Takes away Lumbar Pain
Relief for back pain is a major focus of our chiropractic office. 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. Muscle pain resulting from tension or spasms is often a complicating factor of low back pain.
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 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. 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.
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. We often use muscle stimulation therapy to affect the pain signal by either reducing the signal or blocking the pain signal. Another benefit to using muscle stimulation therapy for the relief of back pain is for reducing inflammation. The reason pain results from inflammation is when the cells are damged the intracellular fluid increases the acidity and irritates the nerve endings. 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 Michigan chiropractic practice is a ice pack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. Ice packs when used properly can be very beneficial to the reduction of pain and inflammation in two very different ways. The two ways ice packs help in the reduction of pain are to reduce the transmission of the nerve or pain signal and to constrict the tissue thereby reducing inflammation. When the nerve conduction velocity is reduced the pain signal is reduced. 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 may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current treatment has been shown in various research projects to effectively reduce the pain signal causing back pain. The mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A distinctive form of treatment to relieve low back pain 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. This form of therapy uses the body’s own defense mechanisms against itself to help the body heal itself. Peripheral neurological facilitation can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
