Macomb Township MI Chiropractor Relieves Lower Back Pain
We take extra pride in helping patients relieve their back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause back pain. Muscle pain resulting from tension or spasms is often a complicating factor of low back pain.
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 of choice may focus on one of many factors such as reducing the pain signal, reducing the inflammation or relieving the muscle related pain.
One of the more effective forms of treatment for the relief of back pain is a therapy called muscle stimulation. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has many applications for the use of relieving low back pain. We often use muscle stimulation therapy to affect the pain signal by either reducing the signal or blocking the pain signal. 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 and the inflammatory process will naturally cause in imbalance in the intracellular fluid irritating the pain receptors of the nerves. 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 Michigan chiropractic practice is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. The cold pack wrapped in a moist cloth has two important properties which aid in the reduction of pain and inflammation. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township MI also may use a therapy called interferential current. Interferential current treatment has been shown in various research projects to effectively reduce the pain signal causing back pain. 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 exclusive form of treatment to relieve sciatica 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 This form of treatment is a method of tricking the nervous system into relaxing and thereby reducing the pain signal. The reason for this is so the opposing muscle group is not contracting at the same time which will cause an injury. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
