Macomb Township MI Chiropractors Minimizes Back And Leg Pain
You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. Over the years we have learned through practical application which therapies are the most effective in relieving specific types of back pain. 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. A common origin of back pain is from trauma resulting in a pinched nerve in the lower back.
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 attention will focus on the damaged tissue and from that point determine what therapy would be the most effective for the relief of your back 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 most common therapies our chiropractors in Macomb Township MI 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. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has the added benefit of acting like a mechanical pump thereby reducing the inflammation and pain stimulus. Inflammation is the bodys repair process yet the damage cells cause a change in the tissue acidity and this stimulates pain. The pads of the electrical muscle stimulation therapy can be placed as such that when the current is applied the fluid in the cells is essentially washed away.
There is a common household product we use in our Macomb Township MI chiropractic clinic is a ice pack. 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. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished inflammation. When the nerve conduction velocity is reduced the pain signal is reduced. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan also may use a therapy called interferential current. This is a form of mild electrical current specifically designed to mix the pain signal and thereby reducing the pain. The mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A distinct form of therapy to relieve back aches by our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a manual form of treatment which uses the nervous system reflexes to inhibit the pain signal 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. Peripheral neurological facilitation when used in associations with other forms of therapy can be extra beneficial for the reduction of low back pain and related muscle tension.
