Chiropractors San Marcos California Suggest Multiple Methods for Reduction of Sciatica
San Marcos CA Chiropractor Eliminates Back Pain
Our chiropractors spend countless hours studying the latest and most effective methods to relieve low back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. Prior to the application of therapy to relieve back pain an understanding of the tissue causing the pain is necessary. 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 CA 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.
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. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has many applications for the use of relieving low back pain. We often use muscle stimulation therapy to affect the pain signal by either reducing the signal or blocking the pain signal. The second method of relieving back pain using electrical muscle stimulation is to reduce the 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 San Marcos California chiropractic practice 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 A cold pack will have two physiological effects in reducing back pain. 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. 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 yay apply inteferential current as the therapy of choice. This is a form of mild electrical current specifically designed to mix the pain signal and thereby reducing the pain. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A wonderful form of therapy to relieve lower back pain by our San Marcos CA 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.
