Chiropractic Office In Ferndale Michigan Provide Many Different Options for Relief of Back Problems
Ferndale MI Chiropractors Minimizes Back Discomfort
Relief for back pain is a major focus of our chiropractic office. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause back pain. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
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. We have found when we use therapies which reduce tissue inflammation, decrease the nerve conduction pain signal and reduce associated muscles we have significant effect in relieving back pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in Ferndale Michigan use to relieve back pain is call electrical muscle stimulation therapy or EMS. Muscle stimulation therapy can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. The therapy is very effective when used as a nerve block or for the reduction of the pain signal. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has the added benefit of acting like a mechanical pump thereby reducing the inflammation and pain stimulus. The inflammatory process is needed for tissue repair to begin however the cellular fluid of the inflammatory process irritates the nerves causing pain. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
Another therapy used in our Ferndale Michigan chiropractic practice is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. Ice packs when used properly can be very beneficial to the reduction of pain and inflammation in two very different ways. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. Reducing the inflammatory response will decrease the irritants which cause the pain signal.
Our chiropractors in Ferndale Michigan may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current has been use for years on athletes for the reduction of nerve and muscle related pain. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. When using interferential current it is important to using the pad placement and modified current as a concurrent method of low back pain relief.
A amazing form of treatment to relieve back aches by our Ferndale MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a manual form of treatment which uses the nervous system reflexes to inhibit the pain signal This form of treatment is a method of tricking the nervous system into relaxing and thereby reducing the pain signal. The nerves of opposing muscle groups will naturally relax when the opposite muscle group is contracted which is a natural process we use to help relieve pain. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
