Ferndale Michigan Chiropractic Relieves Lumbar Pain
We take extra pride in helping patients relieve their back pain. Over the years we have learned through practical application which therapies are the most effective in relieving specific types of back pain. Our chiropractors have found the first step to effectively reliving back pain is a through understanding of the what is causing the low back pain. A common origin of back pain is from trauma resulting in a pinched nerve in the lower back.
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 strategy will first be to understand what anatomy is involved in the lesion. 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 is used for a variety of conditions on our office due to the variety of effects. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. The second method of relieving back pain using electrical muscle stimulation is to reduce the inflammation. Inflammation cause pain by changing the acidity of the intracellular fluid which stimulates the pain receptors. 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.
There is a common household product we use in our Ferndale Michigan chiropractic practice is a cold pack. Applying a cold pack wrapped in a luke warm cloth and applied over the painful area for twenty to thirty minutes is effective for the reduction of pain and inflammation Ice packs when used properly can be very beneficial to the reduction of pain and inflammation in two very different ways. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in Ferndale MI may also Consider using a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current is a form of electrical current with a modified frequency which has shown to reduce the pain signal. The mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. 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 wonderful form of treatment to relieve lumbar pain by our Ferndale MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This type of therapy uses the nervous systems against itself for the reduction of back pain The principle of peripheral neurological facilitation is when the body contracts one muscle it reduces the signal sent to the opposing muscle group. 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.
