East Detroit Michigan Chiropractor Takes away Low Back Pain
You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. We have developed many strategies which work in unison to help relieve your pain. 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.
The signal of pain can only be generated from the nerve tissue which is embedded in the anatomy which is damaged or irritated. Our East Detroit MI chiropractors strategy will first be to understand what anatomy is involved in the lesion. The therapy of choice may focus on one of many factors such as reducing the pain signal, reducing the inflammation or relieving the muscle related 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. The therapy is very effective when used as a nerve block or for the reduction of the pain signal. Another benefit to using muscle stimulation therapy for the relief of back pain is for reducing inflammation. Inflammation cause pain by changing the acidity of the intracellular fluid which stimulates the pain receptors. 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.
There is a common household product we use in our East Detroit Michigan chiropractic practice is a cryopack. 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 Michigan also may use a therapy 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. The combination of pad placement and modulated current work in unison for the reduction of back pain.
A exclusive form of therapy to relieve lower back pain 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 can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
