Our Macomb Township MI chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. Some therapies we will use to decrease the inflammation while other therapies are used to reduce muscle spasms or block the painful nerve signal.
One of the more effective forms of treatment for the relief of back pain is a therapy called muscle stimulation. 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. Inflammation is the body’s way of healing yet the damaged cells release fluid into the tissue which irritates nerve endings causing pain. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.

By reducing the inflammation it helps decrease the fluid in the tissues which are irritants to the nerves causing back pain.

A exceptional form of therapy to relieve lumbar pain by our Macomb Township MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation.
