Chiropractors Downtown Tampa Florida Describe Multiple Treatments for Reduction of Back Problems
Downtown Tampa Florida Chiropractors Alleviates Lumbar Pain
You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. Over the years we have learned through practical application which therapies are the most effective in relieving specific types of back pain. 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.
Any of the many tissues of the body in the lower back can result in back pain however the pain itself is either from direct damage to the nerves in the tissue or inflammation causing nerve irritation. Our Downtown Tampa Florida chiropractors attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the back 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 Downtown Tampa FL 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. 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 cause pain by changing the acidity of the intracellular fluid which stimulates the pain receptors. 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.
There is a common household product we use in our Downtown Tampa FL chiropractic clinic 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 The cold pack wrapped in a moist cloth has two important properties which aid in the reduction of pain and inflammation. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished inflammation. By reducing the transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in Downtown Tampa Florida may also Consider using a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current as a form of treatment for back pain relief has been used for years on athletes for the sole purpose of stopping pain. 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 different form of therapy to relieve back ache by our Downtown Tampa FL 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. The reason for this is so the opposing muscle group is not contracting at the same time which will cause an injury. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
