San Marcos CA Chiropractic Alleviates Back Discomfort
You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. 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. Muscle pain resulting from tension or spasms is often a complicating factor of low back pain.
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 San Marcos CA chiropractors attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the 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.
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. 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. 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.
There is a common household product we use in our San Marcos CA 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 ice pack or cold pack has two benefits in minimizing low back pain. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished inflammation. When the nerve conduction velocity is reduced the pain signal is reduced. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in San Marcos CA may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current as a form of treatment for back pain relief has been used for years on athletes for the sole purpose of stopping 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 distinct form of therapy to relieve back and leg pain by our San Marcos CA 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. Peripheral neurological facilitation treatment uses the opposing nerves and the natural reflexes of the body to decrease muscle tension and reduce pain. 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 can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
