East Detroit MI Chiropractic Office Takes away Low Back Pain
When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your back pain. Over the years we have learned through practical application which therapies are the most effective in relieving specific types of 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.
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 focus on the damaged tissue and from that point determine what therapy would be the most effective for the relief of your back pain. The therapy of choice may focus on one of many factors such as reducing the pain signal, reducing the inflammation or relieving the muscle related pain.
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. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has the added benefit of acting like a mechanical pump thereby reducing the inflammation and pain stimulus. Inflammation is the bodys repair process yet the damage cells cause a change in the tissue acidity and this stimulates 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 Michigan chiropractic practice is a cold pack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. Ice packs when used properly can be very beneficial to the reduction of pain and inflammation in two very different ways. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished inflammation. When the nerve conduction velocity is reduced the pain signal is reduced. 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 also may use a therapy called interferential current. Interferential current treatment has been shown in various research projects to effectively reduce the pain signal causing back pain. The mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A very special form of treatment to relieve sciatica 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 Peripheral neurological facilitation treatment uses the opposing nerves and the natural reflexes of the body to decrease muscle tension and reduce pain. 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 is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
