Ferndale MI Chiropractic Lowers Back Problems
Our chiropractors spend countless hours studying the latest and most effective methods to relieve low back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. The best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. Most patients with low back pain experience pain from more then one source such as the spinal disc, pinched nerve or jamming of the spinal joints.
Back pain can be attributed to several tissues however the pain itself is typically form direct nerve damage in the tissue or inflammation of the tissue. Our Ferndale Michigan chiropractors attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the back pain. The therapy which proves to be most effective is the therapy which effects the anatomy and origin of the pain.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Muscle stimulation therapy can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. We often use muscle stimulation therapy to affect the pain signal by either reducing the signal or blocking the pain signal. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has the added benefit of acting like a mechanical pump thereby reducing the inflammation and pain stimulus. Inflammation and the inflammatory process will naturally cause in imbalance in the intracellular fluid irritating the pain receptors of the nerves. 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.
One of our secret weapons for the relief of back pain in our Ferndale Michigan chiropractic office is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. The ice pack or cold pack has two benefits in minimizing low back pain. The two ways ice packs help in the reduction of pain are to reduce the transmission of the nerve or pain signal and to constrict the tissue thereby reducing inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. By reducing the inflammation it helps decrease the fluid in the tissues which are irritants to the nerves causing back pain.
Our chiropractors in Ferndale MI yay apply inteferential current as the therapy of choice. Interferential current has been use for years on athletes for the reduction of nerve and muscle related pain. The pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. To maximize the effectiveness of the therapy it is important to consider the relationship of pad placement along with which modified current to use to relieve back pain.
A particular form of therapy to relieve sciatica by our Ferndale Michigan chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a form of manual therapy which uses the nerves of the opposing muscle group to decrease in their signal intensity. This form of treatment is a method of tricking the nervous system into relaxing and thereby reducing the pain signal. This form of therapy uses the body’s own defense mechanisms against itself to help the body heal itself. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
