What seems more comforting – heat or ice? Bet you said ‘heat’! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. gets
it. Heat is comfortable and comforting to many Auburn back pain
sufferers. Cold is great therapy and suggested in
early treatment phases, but heat plays a part
in healing. When combined - heat and
electrical stimulation - pain can’t help but relent.
Heat and electrical stimulation calm and soothe pain.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. advises that Auburn back pain and
neck pain patients use heat, ice and electrical stimulation as proper
for pain relief.
BENEFIT OF HEAT FOR PAIN RELIEF
Heat decreases the perception of pain for many.
Heat and cold top the listing of things
that low back pain patients believe reduced their pain
most followed by medication, rest, exercise, talking with a
health professional, stretching, not doing aggravating activities,
and psychological changes. (1) Doctors seek ways to produce
“offset analgesia,” a disproportionally large reduction
in pain as a result of a slight reduction
in stimulation intensity. Heat is a familiar and
documented manner to do this. Electrical stimulation is another. Perceived
or real, the pain reduction is good for a back pain
sufferer. (2) If something reduces pain for a Auburn
back pain patient, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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, bigger than any other health
condition around the world. Doctors and researchers are always
looking for a way to better manage
it. One group of researchers theorized that electrical
muscle stimulation and heat would produce better pain relief and improve
patients’ subjective view of pain. And their experimental trial proved them 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 as well as muscle strength and endurance also
improved. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. guides Auburn
back pain and neck pain sufferers to pain relief with all types of
modalities. Whatever it takes! The heat and stimulation combination improve
each other’s benefit.
