Downtown Tampa Florida Chiropractic Practice Eliminates Lumbar Pain
Back pain relief is a priority at our chiropractic practice. 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. One of the single greatest factors which cause back pain is an injury to the disc.
A complete understanding of the origin of the nerves and the types of tissue damage is essential to the relief of low back pain. Our Downtown Tampa Florida chiropractors strategy will first be to understand what anatomy is involved in the lesion. 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.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in Downtown Tampa FL 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. 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. The reason pain results from inflammation is when the cells are damged the intracellular fluid increases the acidity and irritates the nerve endings. 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 Downtown Tampa Florida chiropractic office is a cold pack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. The ice pack or cold pack has two benefits in minimizing low 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. By reducing the transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. Reducing the inflammatory response will decrease the irritants which cause the pain signal.
Our chiropractors in Downtown Tampa Florida may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current is a form of electrical current with a modified frequency which has shown to reduce the pain signal. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. When using interferential current it is important to using the pad placement and modified current as a concurrent method of low back pain relief.
A unique form of treatment to relieve back ache by our Downtown Tampa Florida 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. This form of therapy uses the body’s own defense mechanisms against itself to help the body heal itself. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
