Ferndale Michigan Chiropractic Practice Relieves Back And Leg Pain
When you come into our chiropractic office you can count on our methods to aid in the relief of your back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause back pain. A common origin of back pain is from trauma resulting in a pinched nerve in the lower back.
Any of the many tissues of the body in the lower back can result in back pain however the pain itself is either from direct damage to the nerves in the tissue or inflammation causing nerve irritation. Our Ferndale Michigan chiropractors attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the back 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. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has many applications for the use of relieving low back pain. First it can be used as a nerve block to reduce or block the nerve signal. Inflammation is often one of the factors causing back pain and the therapy electrical muscle stimulation can be modified to reduce the inflammation and therefore the pain signal. Inflammation is the bodys repair process yet the damage cells cause a change in the tissue acidity and this stimulates pain. 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 cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. The cold pack wrapped in a moist cloth has two important properties which aid in the reduction of pain and inflammation. Ice packs help relieve back pain by decreasing the pain signal and constricting the vessels resulting in diminished inflammation. By reducing the transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in Ferndale MI also may use a therapy called interferential current. This is a form of mild electrical current specifically designed to mix the pain signal and thereby reducing the 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 exclusive form of treatment to relieve sciatica by our Ferndale MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This unique form of therapy uses the opposing muscle groups and their nerves to inhibit the nerve signal and thereby relieving 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. Peripheral neurological facilitation when used in associations with other forms of therapy can be extra beneficial for the reduction of low back pain and related muscle tension.
