Downtown Tampa FL Chiropractors Lowers Back And Leg Pain
When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. Our chiropractors have found the first step to effectively reliving back pain is a through understanding of the what is causing the low back pain. Most patients with low back pain experience pain from more then one source such as the spinal disc, pinched nerve or jamming of the spinal joints.
Back pain can be attributed to several tissues however the pain itself is typically form direct nerve damage in the tissue or inflammation of the tissue. Our Downtown Tampa Florida chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. 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. The therapy is very effective when used as a nerve block or for the reduction of the pain signal. Another benefit to using muscle stimulation therapy for the relief of back pain is for reducing inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s way of healing yet the damaged cells release fluid into the tissue which irritates nerve endings causing 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.
One of the most common and overlooked forms of back pain relief used in our Downtown Tampa Florida chiropractic practice is a ice pack. 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. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in Downtown Tampa Florida 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 pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. 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 distinctive form of treatment to relieve back ache by our Downtown Tampa FL 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 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.
