Chiropractic manipulation is the manual moving of vertebrae to properly realign the spine thereby relieving pressure on the nerves, removing spasm, decreasing or eliminating pain and allowing for enhanced range of motion while resetting the nervous system. Therapies such as EMS, traction, infrared and paraffin are used as superficial modalities to alleviate pain or discomfort while therapies such as ultrasound work on a deeper cellular level removing fluids and exudates.
The use of lidocaine assists in chiropractic care because normally a muscle can only be stretched so far without causing a patient discomfort but many times the stretch threshold is not enough to relieve the pain or spasm which necessitates the treatment to begin with . Through the use of lidocaine accupressure treatment, lidocaine is painlessly injected into the muscle where it has a life span of 10-15minutes during which time the muscle can be stretched to a much larger degree, thereby alleviating the pain and spasm.
