East Detroit Michigan Doctor of Chiropractic Takes away Back Problems
Relief for back pain is a major focus of our chiropractic office. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back pain. Prior to the application of therapy to relieve back pain an understanding of the tissue causing the pain is necessary. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
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 MI chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. 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 therapy can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. 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 is the body’s way of healing yet the damaged cells release fluid into the tissue which irritates nerve endings causing pain. The combination of pulsed electrical muscle stimulation therapy along with proper pad placement can significantly help in the reduction of inflammation and therefore pain.
There is a common household product we use in our East Detroit MI chiropractic clinic is a cold 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. The two ways ice packs help in the reduction of pain are to reduce the transmission of the nerve or pain signal and to constrict the tissue thereby reducing inflammation. By reducing the transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in East Detroit Michigan also may use a therapy called interferential current. Interferential current has been use for years on athletes for the reduction of nerve and muscle related 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 particular form of treatment to relieve back pain by our East Detroit MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This type of therapy uses the nervous systems against itself for the reduction of 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 when used in associations with other forms of therapy can be extra beneficial for the reduction of low back pain and related muscle tension.
