San Marcos California Chiropractic Practice Reduces Back And Leg Pain
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. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause back pain. One of the single greatest factors which cause back pain is an injury to the disc.
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 California chiropractors attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the back pain. The therapy of choice may focus on one of many factors such as reducing the pain signal, reducing the inflammation or relieving the muscle related pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in San Marcos California use to relieve back pain is call electrical muscle stimulation therapy or EMS. Muscle stimulation therapy can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has the added benefit of acting like a mechanical pump thereby reducing the inflammation and pain stimulus. Inflammation is the body’s way of healing yet the damaged cells release fluid into the tissue which irritates nerve endings 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.
One of the most common and overlooked forms of back pain relief used in our San Marcos California 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 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 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 San Marcos CA also may use a therapy called interferential current. Interferential current is a form of electrical current with a modified frequency which has shown to reduce the pain signal. The mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A amazing form of treatment to relieve back aches by our San Marcos California chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This unique form of therapy uses the opposing muscle groups and their nerves to inhibit the nerve signal and thereby relieving back pain 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. Peripheral neurological facilitation when used in associations with other forms of therapy can be extra beneficial for the reduction of low back pain and related muscle tension.
