Macomb Township Michigan Chiropractic Office Reduces Low Back 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. Prior to the application of therapy to relieve back pain an understanding of the tissue causing the pain is necessary. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
Any of the many tissues of the body in the lower back can result in back pain however the pain itself is either from direct damage to the nerves in the tissue or inflammation causing nerve irritation. Our Macomb Township MI chiropractors strategy will first be to understand what anatomy is involved in the lesion. The therapy which proves to be most effective is the therapy which effects the anatomy and origin of the pain.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. 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. 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. By using the pulsing action of the electrical muscle stimulation therapy pads we can essentially pump the tissue to reduce the inflammation and therefore back pain.
A therapy often overlooked which is very beneficial and used in our Macomb Township 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 Ice packs when used properly can be very beneficial to the reduction of pain and inflammation in two very different ways. 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. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan yay apply inteferential current as the therapy of choice. This is a form of mild electrical current specifically designed to mix the pain signal and thereby reducing the pain. The pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. 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 distinct form of therapy to relieve low back pain by our Macomb Township 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.
