Ferndale Michigan Doctor of Chiropractic Lowers Lumbar Pain
You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back pain. 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.
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. The therapy which proves to be most effective is the therapy which effects the anatomy and origin of the pain.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Muscle stimulation treatment is often used as a combined form of therapy for the relief of back pain. 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 reason pain results from inflammation is when the cells are damged the intracellular fluid increases the acidity and irritates the nerve endings. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
A therapy often overlooked which is very beneficial and used in our Ferndale Michigan chiropractic practice is a cold pack. 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. 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. 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 Michigan may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. 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. 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 ache by our Ferndale Michigan 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 Peripheral neurological facilitation treatment uses the opposing nerves and the natural reflexes of the body to decrease muscle tension and reduce pain. 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. Peripheral neurological facilitation can be very helpful in reducing back pain especially when the pain is from a contracted muscle.
