East Detroit MI Chiropractic Office Lowers Sciatica
Relief for back pain is a major focus of our chiropractic office. We have developed many strategies which work in unison to help relieve your pain. Prior to the application of therapy to relieve back pain an understanding of the tissue causing the pain is necessary. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
None of the structures in the low back stimulate a pain signal, it is the pain fibers within the tissue which produce the pain signal. Our East Detroit 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 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 more effective forms of treatment for the relief of back pain is a therapy called muscle stimulation. Muscle stimulation therapy is used for a variety of conditions on our office due to the variety of effects. The therapy is very effective when used as a nerve block or for the reduction of the pain signal. 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. By using the pulsing action of the electrical muscle stimulation therapy pads we can essentially pump the tissue to reduce the inflammation and therefore back pain.
One of the most common and overlooked forms of back pain relief used in our East Detroit MI chiropractic practice is a cold pack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. Ice packs when used properly can be very beneficial to the reduction of pain and inflammation in two very different ways. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in East Detroit 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. 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 different form of therapy to relieve back aches by our East Detroit Michigan chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This type of therapy uses the nervous systems against itself for the reduction of back pain Peripheral neurological facilitation treatment uses the opposing nerves and the natural reflexes of the body to decrease muscle tension and reduce pain. 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 can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
