San Marcos California Chiropractic Eliminates Chronic Back Pain
Our chiropractors spend countless hours studying the latest and most effective methods to relieve low back pain. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back 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.
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 San Marcos CA chiropractors attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the back pain. The therapy which proves to be most effective is the therapy which effects the anatomy and origin of the pain.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has many applications for the use of relieving low back pain. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. 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 damged the intracellular fluid increases the acidity and irritates the nerve endings. The combination of pulsed electrical muscle stimulation therapy along with proper pad placement can significantly help in the reduction of inflammation and therefore pain.
A therapy often overlooked which is very beneficial and used in our San Marcos California chiropractic clinic is a cryopack. Applying a cold pack wrapped in a luke warm cloth and applied over the painful area for twenty to thirty minutes is effective for the reduction of pain and inflammation The cold pack wrapped in a moist cloth has two important properties which aid in the reduction of pain and inflammation. 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 transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in San Marcos California may also Consider using a treatment 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. The combination of pad placement and modulated current work in unison for the reduction of back pain.
A very special form of treatment to relieve lower back pain by our San Marcos California chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a manual form of treatment which uses the nervous system reflexes to inhibit the pain signal 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 is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
