Ferndale MI Chiropractor Reduces Sciatica
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. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause back pain. Probably the single greatest anatomy involved in pain from the lower back is the inter spinal facets joints.
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. The therapy which proves to be most effective is the therapy which effects the anatomy and origin of the pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in Ferndale MI 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. Another benefit to using muscle stimulation therapy for the relief of back pain is for reducing inflammation. Inflammation cause pain by changing the acidity of the intracellular fluid which stimulates the pain receptors. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
There is a common household product we use in our Ferndale MI chiropractic office 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 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. Controlling inflammation is vital to minimizing pain and starting the healing process.
Our chiropractors in Ferndale MI may also Consider using a treatment called interferential current. This is a form of mild electrical current specifically designed to mix the pain signal and thereby reducing the pain. The pad placement is an important factor when using this type of therapy for back pain relief. The combination of pad placement and modulated current work in unison for the reduction of back pain.
A specific form of therapy to relieve back discomfort 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 is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
