San Marcos CA Chiropractic Office Relieves Sciatica
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. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause back pain. Muscle pain resulting from tension or spasms is often a complicating factor of low back pain.
The signal of pain can only be generated from the nerve tissue which is embedded in the anatomy which is damaged or irritated. Our San Marcos CA chiropractors strategy will first be to understand what anatomy is involved in the lesion. On many occasions we will employ two or more therapies to attack two different origins of back pain.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Muscle stimulation therapy can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. First it can be used as a nerve block to reduce or block the nerve signal. Inflammation is often one of the factors causing back pain and the therapy electrical muscle stimulation can be modified to reduce the inflammation and therefore the pain signal. Inflammation is the bodys repair process yet the damage cells cause a change in the tissue acidity and this stimulates pain. The pads of the electrical muscle stimulation therapy can be placed as such that when the current is applied the fluid in the cells is essentially washed away.
A therapy often overlooked which is very beneficial and used in our San Marcos California chiropractic practice is a ice 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. 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. By reducing the inflammation it helps decrease the fluid in the tissues which are irritants to the nerves causing back pain.
Our chiropractors in San Marcos CA may want to apply 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. 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 fantastic form of therapy to relieve sciatica by our San Marcos California 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 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. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
