Chiropractic Office In East Detroit Michigan Describe A Variety of Options for Reduction of Back Ache
East Detroit Michigan Chiropractic Reduces Back And Leg Pain
We take extra pride in helping patients relieve their back pain. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back pain. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause back pain. Muscle pain resulting from tension or spasms is often a complicating factor of low back pain.
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 MI 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.
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. 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 bodys repair process yet the damage cells cause a change in the tissue acidity and this stimulates 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 Michigan chiropractic office is a ice 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 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. 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 yay apply inteferential current as the therapy of choice. 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 pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A particular form of treatment to relieve back problems 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 The principle of peripheral neurological facilitation is when the body contracts one muscle it reduces the signal sent to the opposing muscle group. 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. Peripheral neurological facilitation can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
