Macomb Township MI Doctor of Chiropractic Minimizes Back And Leg Pain
You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. Our chiropractors have found the first step to effectively reliving back pain is a through understanding of the what is causing the low back pain. One of the single greatest factors which cause back pain is an injury to the disc.
The signal of pain can only be generated from the nerve tissue which is embedded in the anatomy which is damaged or irritated. Our Macomb Township MI 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. On many occasions we will employ two or more therapies to attack two different origins of back pain.
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. 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. 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.
One of our secret weapons for the relief of back pain in our Macomb Township MI chiropractic practice is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. The ice pack or cold pack has two benefits in minimizing low back pain. 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. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current treatment has been shown in various research projects to effectively reduce the pain signal causing back pain. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. 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 treatment to relieve back ache 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 Peripheral neurological facilitation treatment uses the opposing nerves and the natural reflexes of the body to decrease muscle tension and reduce pain. 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. Peripheral neurological facilitation can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
