Macomb Township Michigan Chiropractors Lowers Lower Back Pain
When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your back pain. We have developed many strategies which work in unison to help relieve your pain. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause 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. On many occasions we will employ two or more therapies to attack two different origins of back pain.
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. Another benefit to using muscle stimulation therapy for the relief of back pain is for reducing inflammation. Inflammation is the bodys repair process yet the damage cells cause a change in the tissue acidity and this stimulates pain. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
One of the most common and overlooked forms of back pain relief used in our Macomb Township MI chiropractic office is a cold pack. 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. When the nerve conduction velocity is reduced the pain signal is reduced. 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 is a form of electrical current with a modified frequency which has shown to reduce the pain signal. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. 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 exclusive form of treatment to relieve back aches 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 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 is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
