When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. The best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. Probably the single greatest anatomy involved in pain from the lower back is the inter spinal facets joints.
A complete understanding of the origin of the nerves and the types of tissue damage is essential to the relief of low back pain. Our East Detroit Michigan 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 can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. First it can be used as a nerve block to reduce or block the nerve signal. The second method of relieving back pain using electrical muscle stimulation is to reduce the inflammation. The reason pain results from inflammation is when the cells are damged the intracellular fluid increases the acidity and irritates the nerve endings. 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 MI chiropractic practice 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 The ice pack or cold pack has two benefits in minimizing low back pain. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. When the nerve conduction velocity is reduced the pain signal is reduced. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in East Detroit MI yay apply inteferential current as the therapy of choice. Interferential current treatment has been shown in various research projects to effectively reduce the pain signal causing back pain. The pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A very special form of treatment to relieve lower back pain by our East Detroit MI 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 This form of treatment is a method of tricking the nervous system into relaxing and thereby reducing the pain signal. This form of therapy uses the body’s own defense mechanisms against itself to help the body heal itself. Peripheral neurological facilitation can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
