You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. 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.
A complete understanding of the origin of the nerves and the types of tissue damage is essential to the relief of low back pain. 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.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Muscle stimulation therapy can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. We often use muscle stimulation therapy to affect the pain signal by either reducing the signal or blocking the pain signal. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has the added benefit of acting like a mechanical pump thereby reducing the inflammation and pain stimulus. Inflammation and the inflammatory process will naturally cause in imbalance in the intracellular fluid irritating the pain receptors of the nerves. 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 East Detroit MI chiropractic clinic 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 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. 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 East Detroit Michigan may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current has been use for years on athletes for the reduction of nerve and muscle related pain. The pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A different form of therapy to relieve low back pain by our East Detroit 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. The reason for this is so the opposing muscle group is not contracting at the same time which will cause an injury. 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.
