Macomb Township Michigan Chiropractor Lowers Back Problems
Our chiropractors spend countless hours studying the latest and most effective methods to relieve low back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. 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. One of the single greatest factors which cause back pain is an injury to the disc.
The signal of pain can only be generated from the nerve tissue which is embedded in the anatomy which is damaged or irritated. Our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractors strategy will first be to understand what anatomy is involved in the lesion. On many occasions we will employ two or more therapies to attack two different origins of back pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in Macomb Township MI 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. We often use muscle stimulation therapy to affect the pain signal by either reducing the signal or blocking the pain signal. Inflammation is often one of the factors causing back pain and the therapy electrical muscle stimulation can be modified to reduce the inflammation and therefore the pain signal. Inflammation and the inflammatory process will naturally cause in imbalance in the intracellular fluid irritating the pain receptors of the nerves. 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 our secret weapons for the relief of back pain in our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractic office is a cold pack. 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. 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. By reducing the inflammation it helps decrease the fluid in the tissues which are irritants to the nerves causing back pain.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan 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. 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 special form of therapy to relieve back ache by our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This type of therapy uses the nervous systems against itself for the reduction of back pain Peripheral neurological facilitation treatment uses the opposing nerves and the natural reflexes of the body to decrease muscle tension and reduce pain. 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 is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
