Gresham Chiropractor, Dr. Jeffrey Bratten D. C., Helps Alleviate Back Spasm Pain

Gresham OR, 31-JANUARY-2014 - Great Health Chiropractic and Dr. Jeffrey Bratten, D. C., Gresham chiropractor, are pleased to announce that alleviation of back spasm pain is readily available to local Gresham residents. The sudden grip of muscle spasms in the back can wake the victim from a sound sleep, or make it impossible to stand or walk. The severity of the spasm can vary, but chiropractic therapy identifies the exact duration and type of techniques that are required.

According to Dr. Jeffrey Bratten, D. C., Gresham chiropractor, "The back is a complex structure consisting of overlapping and inter-connected components. These include tendons, muscles and other soft tissues; very sensitive nerves and nerve roots that reach from the lower back down into the legs and feet; a number of small, yet complex joints, and discs with a gelatinous core."

"When any of these structures is irritated, it can create muscle spasms that are severe" he continues. "The muscles are taxed with toxins that do not allow the normal release. Chiropractic techniques help to relieve pain from muscle spasms by removing pressure on discs through alignment of the spinal column. This reduced pressure in turn relieves compression of the nerves and nerve roots."

In addition to these techniques, it relieves the build up of toxins in the soft tissue. This can be achieved through increasing circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid in the irritated area. Massage, ice, heat, electrical stimulation and ultrasound therapies are all potential techniques for improving the flow of oxygen and nutrient rich blood into the irritated tissues and carrying away the toxins that accrue when the muscle is overused.
