East Detroit Michigan Chiropractor Relieves Chronic Back Pain
When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your 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. One of the single greatest factors which cause back pain is an injury to the disc.
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 East Detroit Michigan chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. We have found when we use therapies which reduce tissue inflammation, decrease the nerve conduction pain signal and reduce associated muscles we have significant effect in relieving back pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in East Detroit MI use to relieve back pain is call electrical muscle stimulation therapy or EMS. 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. The second method of relieving back pain using electrical muscle stimulation is to reduce the inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s way of healing yet the damaged cells release fluid into the tissue which irritates nerve endings causing pain. 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.
A therapy often overlooked which is very beneficial and used in our East Detroit MI chiropractic office 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 The cold pack wrapped in a moist cloth has two important properties which aid in the reduction of pain and inflammation. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished inflammation. By reducing the transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in East Detroit 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. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. 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 exclusive form of treatment to relieve back pain 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 This form of treatment is a method of tricking the nervous system into relaxing and thereby reducing the pain signal. 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.
