Macomb Township MI Chiropractic Minimizes Back 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. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
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 focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. On many occasions we will employ two or more therapies to attack two different origins of back pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in Macomb Township 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. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. The second method of relieving back pain using electrical muscle stimulation is to reduce the inflammation. The inflammatory process is needed for tissue repair to begin however the cellular fluid of the inflammatory process irritates the nerves 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 Macomb Township MI chiropractic clinic 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. 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. By reducing the inflammation it helps decrease the fluid in the tissues which are irritants to the nerves causing back pain.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan also may use a therapy called interferential current. Interferential current is a form of electrical current with a modified frequency which has shown to reduce the pain signal. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A special form of treatment to relieve back discomfort by our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This type of therapy uses the nervous systems against itself for the reduction of back pain The principle of peripheral neurological facilitation is when the body contracts one muscle it reduces the signal sent to the opposing muscle group. The reason for this is so the opposing muscle group is not contracting at the same time which will cause an injury. Peripheral neurological facilitation is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
