When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your 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. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
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 Macomb Township 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.
One of the more effective forms of treatment for the relief of back pain is a therapy called muscle stimulation. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has many applications for the use of relieving low back pain. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. Another benefit to using muscle stimulation therapy for the relief of back pain is for reducing inflammation. Inflammation cause pain by changing the acidity of the intracellular fluid which stimulates the pain receptors. 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 Macomb Township Michigan chiropractic office is a cryopack. 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. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan yay apply inteferential current as the therapy of choice. 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. To maximize the effectiveness of the therapy it is important to consider the relationship of pad placement along with which modified current to use to relieve back pain.
A distinct form of therapy to relieve low back pain by our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a manual form of treatment which uses the nervous system reflexes to inhibit the pain signal 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 is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
