Macomb Township Michigan Chiropractic Office Lowers Back Pain
Back pain relief is a priority at our chiropractic practice. 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. Muscle pain resulting from tension or spasms is often a complicating factor of low back pain.
None of the structures in the low back stimulate a pain signal, it is the pain fibers within the tissue which produce the pain signal. Our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractors strategy will first be to understand what anatomy is involved in the lesion. 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.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Muscle stimulation treatment is often used as a combined form of therapy for the relief of back pain. We often use muscle stimulation therapy to affect the pain signal by either reducing the signal or blocking the pain signal. 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 cause pain by changing the acidity of the intracellular fluid which stimulates the pain receptors. The combination of pulsed electrical muscle stimulation therapy along with proper pad placement can significantly help in the reduction of inflammation and therefore pain.
One of our secret weapons for the relief of back pain in our Macomb Township 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. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. By reducing the transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. Reducing the inflammatory response will decrease the irritants which cause the pain signal.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township MI also may use a therapy called interferential current. 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. When using interferential current it is important to using the pad placement and modified current as a concurrent method of low back pain relief.
A particular form of therapy to relieve back aches by our Macomb Township Michigan 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 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.
