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 origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
None of the structures in the low back stimulate a pain signal, it is the pain fibers within the tissue which produce the pain signal. Our Ferndale Michigan chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. Some therapies we will use to decrease the inflammation while other therapies are used to reduce muscle spasms or block the painful nerve signal.
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. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy is often use to minimize the pain signal emanating from the lower back. Another benefit to using muscle stimulation therapy for the relief of back pain is for reducing inflammation. Inflammation and the inflammatory process will naturally cause in imbalance in the intracellular fluid irritating the pain receptors of the nerves. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
One of the most common and overlooked forms of back pain relief 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. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. By reducing the transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. 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 treatment has been shown in various research projects to effectively reduce the pain signal causing back pain. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A exceptional form of treatment to relieve lower back 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. The reason for this is so the opposing muscle group is not contracting at the same time which will cause an injury. Peripheral neurological facilitation can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
