Chiropractors Macomb Township Michigan Describe Several Methods for the Ease of Lumbar Pain
Macomb Township Michigan Chiropractors Reduces Low Back 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. 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.
Back pain can be attributed to several tissues however the pain itself is typically form direct nerve damage in the tissue or inflammation of the tissue. Our Macomb Township Michigan 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. 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.
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. 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 is the bodys repair process yet the damage cells cause a change in the tissue acidity and this stimulates pain. The combination of pulsed electrical muscle stimulation therapy along with proper pad placement can significantly help in the reduction of inflammation and therefore pain.
A therapy often overlooked which is very beneficial and used in our Macomb Township MI chiropractic practice is a cryopack. Applying a cold pack wrapped in a luke warm cloth and applied over the painful area for twenty to thirty minutes is effective for the reduction of pain and inflammation The cold pack wrapped in a moist cloth has two important properties which aid in the reduction of pain and inflammation. 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 Michigan may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current is a form of electrical current with a modified frequency which has shown to reduce the pain signal. The pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. 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 particular form of therapy 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. This form of therapy uses the body’s own defense mechanisms against itself to help the body heal itself. 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.
