Macomb Township Michigan Chiropractic Office Relieves Back Problems
Back pain relief is a priority at our chiropractic practice. Over the years we have learned through practical application which therapies are the most effective in relieving specific types of back pain. The best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. Most patients with low back pain experience pain from more then one source such as the spinal disc, pinched nerve or jamming of the spinal joints.
Any of the many tissues of the body in the lower back can result in back pain however the pain itself is either from direct damage to the nerves in the tissue or inflammation causing nerve irritation. 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. The therapy which proves to be most effective is the therapy which effects the anatomy and origin of the pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan use to relieve back pain is call electrical muscle stimulation therapy or EMS. Muscle stimulation therapy is used for a variety of conditions on our office due to the variety of effects. 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 cause pain by changing the acidity of the intracellular fluid which stimulates the pain receptors. 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.
Another therapy used in our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractic clinic is a cold 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. The two ways ice packs help in the reduction of pain are to reduce the transmission of the nerve or pain signal and to constrict the tissue thereby reducing 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 Michigan may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current as a form of treatment for back pain relief has been used for years on athletes for the sole purpose of stopping pain. The pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. 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 and leg pain by our Macomb Township MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This type of therapy uses the nervous systems against itself for the reduction of back pain The principle of peripheral neurological facilitation is when the body contracts one muscle it reduces the signal sent to the opposing muscle group. 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.
