Macomb Township Michigan Chiropractic Office Eliminates Back And Leg Pain
We take extra pride in helping patients relieve their back pain. 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. A common origin of back pain is from trauma resulting in a pinched nerve in the lower back.
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 which proves to be most effective is the therapy which effects the anatomy and origin of the pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan use to relieve back pain is call electrical muscle stimulation therapy or EMS. Muscle stimulation treatment is often used as a combined form of therapy for the relief of back pain. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. Another benefit to using muscle stimulation therapy for the relief of back pain is for reducing inflammation. The reason pain results from inflammation is when the cells are damged the intracellular fluid increases the acidity and irritates the nerve endings. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
A therapy often overlooked which is very beneficial and used in our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractic office is a cold pack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. A cold pack will have two physiological effects in reducing back pain. 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. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township MI may also Consider using a treatment 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 mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. 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 very special form of treatment to relieve low back pain by our Macomb Township MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a form of manual therapy which uses the nerves of the opposing muscle group to decrease in their signal intensity. The principle of peripheral neurological facilitation is when the body contracts one muscle it reduces the signal sent to the opposing muscle group. This form of therapy uses the body’s own defense mechanisms against itself to help the body heal itself. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
