East Detroit Michigan Chiropractors Eliminates Lumbar Pain
Our chiropractors spend countless hours studying the latest and most effective methods to relieve low back pain. Over the years we have learned through practical application which therapies are the most effective in relieving specific types of back pain. The best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. Probably the single greatest anatomy involved in pain from the lower back is the inter spinal facets joints.
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 Michigan chiropractors attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the back pain. The therapy we use to relieve back pain will be dependent on the objective of reducing the pain signal, blocking the pain signal or any combination thereof.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. 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 is the body’s repair process yet the damage cells cause a change in the tissue acidity and this stimulates pain. The combination of pulsed electrical muscle stimulation therapy along with proper pad placement can significantly help in the reduction of inflammation and therefore pain.
There is a common household product we use in our East Detroit MI chiropractic practice 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 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 transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. 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 treatment has been shown in various research projects to effectively reduce the pain signal causing back 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 distinct form of treatment to relieve back aches by our East Detroit Michigan chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This unique form of therapy uses the opposing muscle groups and their nerves to inhibit the nerve signal and thereby relieving back pain 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 when used in associations with other forms of therapy can be extra beneficial for the reduction of low back pain and related muscle tension.
