Ferndale MI Chiropractic Practice Relieves Back Aches
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 best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. Probably the single greatest anatomy involved in pain from the lower back is the inter spinal facets joints.
The signal of pain can only be generated from the nerve tissue which is embedded in the anatomy which is damaged or irritated. Our Ferndale MI chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. The therapy of choice may focus on one of many factors such as reducing the pain signal, reducing the inflammation or relieving the muscle related 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. 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. The inflammatory process is needed for tissue repair to begin however the cellular fluid of the inflammatory process irritates the nerves causing pain. The combination of pulsed electrical muscle stimulation therapy along with proper pad placement can significantly help in the reduction of inflammation and therefore pain.
Another therapy used in our Ferndale Michigan chiropractic office 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 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 MI yay apply inteferential current as the therapy of choice. Interferential current as a form of treatment for back pain relief has been used for years on athletes for the sole purpose of stopping 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 distinct form of therapy to relieve back and leg pain by our Ferndale Michigan chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a form of manual therapy which uses the nerves of the opposing muscle group to decrease in their signal intensity. This form of treatment is a method of tricking the nervous system into relaxing and thereby reducing the pain signal. 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.
