Macomb Township Michigan Chiropractor Eliminates Back And Leg Pain
We take extra pride in helping patients relieve their back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. Our chiropractors have found the first step to effectively reliving back pain is a through understanding of the what is causing the low back pain. Muscle pain resulting from tension or spasms is often a complicating factor of low back pain.
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 Macomb Township 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.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Muscle stimulation treatment is often used as a combined form of therapy for the relief of back pain. 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. The inflammatory process is needed for tissue repair to begin however the cellular fluid of the inflammatory process irritates the nerves causing pain. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
A therapy often overlooked which is very beneficial and 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. 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. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township Michigan also may use a therapy called interferential current. 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. 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 specific form of treatment to relieve 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. This form of treatment is a method of tricking the nervous system into relaxing and thereby reducing the pain signal. The nerves of opposing muscle groups will naturally relax when the opposite muscle group is contracted which is a natural process we use to help relieve pain. Peripheral neurological facilitation is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
