Chiropractors Macomb Township MI Feature Several Strategies for Relief of Back Problems
Macomb Township MI Chiropractic Office Alleviates Back And Leg Pain
Back pain relief is a priority at our chiropractic practice. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back pain. The best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
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 attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the back pain. The therapy we use to relieve back pain will be dependent on the objective of reducing the pain signal, blocking the pain signal or any combination thereof.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has many applications for the use of relieving low back pain. 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. Inflammation is the body’s way of healing yet the damaged cells release fluid into the tissue which irritates nerve endings causing pain. By using the pulsing action of the electrical muscle stimulation therapy pads we can essentially pump the tissue to reduce the inflammation and therefore back pain.
One of the most common and overlooked forms of back pain relief used in our Macomb Township MI 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. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. By reducing the transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. 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 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 sciatica by our Macomb Township 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 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.
