East Detroit Michigan Chiropractic Takes away Low Back Pain
When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your back pain. 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. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
A complete understanding of the origin of the nerves and the types of tissue damage is essential to the relief of low back pain. Our East Detroit Michigan chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. We have found when we use therapies which reduce tissue inflammation, decrease the nerve conduction pain signal and reduce associated muscles we have significant effect in relieving back pain.
One of the more effective forms of treatment for the relief of back pain is a therapy called muscle stimulation. 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. 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.
Another therapy used in our East Detroit MI chiropractic practice is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. A cold pack will have two physiological effects in reducing 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. When the nerve conduction velocity is reduced the pain signal is reduced. Reducing the inflammatory response will decrease the irritants which cause the pain signal.
Our chiropractors in East Detroit Michigan yay apply inteferential current as the therapy of choice. Interferential current has been use for years on athletes for the reduction of nerve and muscle related pain. 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 distinct form of therapy to relieve lumbar pain by our East Detroit 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 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 can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
