Macomb Township MI Chiropractic Practice Reduces Back Aches
We take extra pride in helping patients relieve their back pain. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back pain. The best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. 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 Macomb Township MI chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. On many occasions we will employ two or more therapies to attack two different origins of back pain.
One of the more effective forms of treatment for the relief of back pain is a therapy called muscle stimulation. Muscle stimulation treatment is often used as a combined form of therapy for the relief of back pain. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. Inflammation is often one of the factors causing back pain and the therapy electrical muscle stimulation can be modified to reduce the inflammation and therefore the pain signal. Inflammation is the bodys repair process yet the damage cells cause a change in the tissue acidity and this stimulates pain. The combination of pulsed electrical muscle stimulation therapy along with proper pad placement can significantly help in the reduction of inflammation and therefore pain.
Another therapy used in our Macomb Township Michigan 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 A cold pack will have two physiological effects in reducing 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. By reducing the inflammation it helps decrease the fluid in the tissues which are irritants to the nerves causing back pain.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan also may use a therapy called interferential current. Interferential current is a form of electrical current with a modified frequency which has shown to reduce the pain signal. The mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. The combination of pad placement and modulated current work in unison for the reduction of back pain.
A distinct form of therapy to relieve sciatica by our Macomb Township Michigan 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. This form of treatment is a method of tricking the nervous system into relaxing and thereby reducing the pain signal. The nerves of opposing muscle groups will naturally relax when the opposite muscle group is contracted which is a natural process we use to help relieve pain. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
