What seems more comforting – hot or cold? Bet you
said ‘hot’! Most Chiropractic Clinic gets
it. Heat is comfortable and comforting to many Murfreesboro back pain
sufferers. Cold is great therapy and suggested in
initial treatment phases, but heat plays a part
in healing. When put together - heat with
electrical stimulation - pain cannot help but subside.
Heat and electrical stimulation calm and ease pain.
Most Chiropractic Clinic recommends that Murfreesboro back pain and
neck pain patients use heat, ice and electrical stimulation as proper
for pain relief.
BENEFIT OF HEAT FOR PAIN RELIEF
Heat reduces the perception of pain for many.
Heat and cold lead the list of options
that low back pain patients believe reduced their pain
most followed by medication, rest, exercise, speaking with a
health professional, stretching, not doing aggravating activities,
and psychological changes. (1) Doctors look for ways to elicit
“offset analgesia,” a disproportionally large reduction
in pain due to a small decrease
in stimulation intensity. Heat is one well-known and
documented manner to do this. Electrical stimulation is another. Perceived
or actual, the pain reduction is good for a back pain
sufferer. (2) If something reduces pain for a Murfreesboro
back pain patient, Most Chiropractic Clinic will consider its use.
BENEFIT OF HEAT AND ELECTRICAL STIMULATION FOR BACK PAIN
Heat feels good. Electrical stimulation feels good. Back
pain and neck pain patients seek feeling “good” when they are
in pain. For nonspecific low back pain sufferers, it is
a significant cause of disability, larger than any other health
condition around the world. Doctors and researchers are always
looking for a way to better control
it. One group of researchers hypothesized that electrical
muscle stimulation and heat would produce better pain relief and improve
patients’ subjective view of pain. And their experimental trial demonstrated
that they were right! They found
a statistically significant reduction in pain after 18 treatments. The relief was
even recorded at a 12 week follow up.
Patients’ mood in addition to muscle strength and endurance also
improved. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic guides Murfreesboro
back pain and neck pain sufferers to pain relief with all sorts of
modalities. Whatever it takes! The heat and stimulation combination improve
each other’s benefit.
