East Detroit Michigan Chiropractic Minimizes Back Discomfort
You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. We have developed many strategies which work in unison to help relieve your pain. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause back pain. Probably the single greatest anatomy involved in pain from the lower back is the inter spinal facets joints.
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 MI 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.
One of the more effective forms of treatment for the relief of back pain is a therapy called muscle stimulation. 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 and the inflammatory process will naturally cause in imbalance in the intracellular fluid irritating the pain receptors of the nerves. 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 the most common and overlooked forms of back pain relief used in our East Detroit MI chiropractic clinic is a cryopack. 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 nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. 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 may also Consider using a treatment called interferential current. This is a form of mild electrical current specifically designed to mix the pain signal and thereby reducing the pain. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A distinct form of treatment to relieve lumbar pain by our East Detroit MI 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. 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.
