Macomb Township MI Chiropractic Takes away Back Problems
We take extra pride in helping patients relieve their back pain. 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.
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 Macomb Township MI 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. The therapy which proves to be most effective is the therapy which effects the anatomy and origin of the pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan use to relieve back pain is call electrical muscle stimulation therapy or EMS. Muscle stimulation therapy is used for a variety of conditions on our office due to the variety of effects. 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. 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.
One of our secret weapons for the relief of back pain in our Macomb Township MI chiropractic office is a cold 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 A cold pack will have two physiological effects in reducing back pain. 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. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township 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. The pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. The combination of pad placement and modulated current work in unison for the reduction of back pain.
A unique form of treatment to relieve lumbar pain by our Macomb Township Michigan 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. 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. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
