East Detroit MI Chiropractic Practice Minimizes 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. A common origin of back pain is from trauma resulting in a pinched nerve in the lower back.
The signal of pain can only be generated from the nerve tissue which is embedded in the anatomy which is damaged or irritated. Our East Detroit MI chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. We may use several therapies in conjunction to relieve your back pain depending on the number of physiological process involved.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in East Detroit MI use to relieve back pain is call electrical muscle stimulation therapy or EMS. Muscle stimulation therapy can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. 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 office is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. The cold pack wrapped in a moist cloth has two important properties which aid in the reduction of pain and inflammation. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished 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 East Detroit Michigan also may use a therapy called interferential current. This is a form of mild electrical current specifically designed to mix the pain signal and thereby reducing the 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 very special form of treatment to relieve back and leg pain by our East Detroit 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. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
