East Detroit MI Chiropractic Practice Reduces Chronic Back Pain
Our chiropractors spend countless hours studying the latest and most effective methods to relieve low 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. Probably the single greatest anatomy involved in pain from the lower back is the inter spinal facets joints.
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 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. First it can be used as a nerve block to reduce or block the nerve signal. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has the added benefit of acting like a mechanical pump thereby reducing the inflammation and pain stimulus. 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.
There is a common household product we use in our East Detroit Michigan 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 The ice pack or cold pack has two benefits in minimizing low 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. 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 MI may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current as a form of treatment for back pain relief has been used for years on athletes for the sole purpose of stopping 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 exclusive form of therapy to relieve low back pain by our East Detroit MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a manual form of treatment which uses the nervous system reflexes to inhibit the pain signal This form of treatment is a method of tricking the nervous system into relaxing and thereby reducing the pain signal. 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 can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
