Macomb Township Michigan Chiropractor Eliminates Back Discomfort
When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your back pain. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back pain. The best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. Muscle pain resulting from tension or spasms is often a complicating factor of low back pain.
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 Michigan chiropractors strategy will first be to understand what anatomy is involved in the lesion. We may use several therapies in conjunction to relieve your back pain depending on the number of physiological process involved.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Muscle stimulation therapy is used for a variety of conditions on our office due to the variety of effects. First it can be used as a nerve block to reduce or block the nerve signal. The second method of relieving back pain using electrical muscle stimulation is to reduce the inflammation. The reason pain results from inflammation is when the cells are damaged, the intracellular fluid increases the acidity and irritates the nerve endings. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
Another therapy used in our Macomb Township Michigan chiropractic clinic is a ice 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. 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. Reducing the inflammatory response will decrease the irritants which cause the pain signal.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township 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 mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. 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 specific form of therapy to relieve low back pain by our Macomb Township MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a form of manual therapy which uses the nerves of the opposing muscle group to decrease in their signal intensity. The principle of peripheral neurological facilitation is when the body contracts one muscle it reduces the signal sent to the opposing muscle group. The reason for this is so the opposing muscle group is not contracting at the same time which will cause an injury. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
