Ferndale Michigan Chiropractic Eliminates Back Discomfort
We take extra pride in helping patients relieve their back pain. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back pain. Our chiropractors have found the first step to effectively reliving back pain is a through understanding of the what is causing the low back pain. Muscle pain resulting from tension or spasms is often a complicating factor of low back pain.
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 attention will focus on the damaged tissue and from that point determine what therapy would be the most effective for the relief of your back pain. On many occasions we will employ two or more therapies to attack two different origins of back pain.
One of the more effective forms of treatment for the relief of back pain is a therapy called muscle stimulation. Muscle stimulation treatment is often used as a combined form of therapy for the relief of back pain. First it can be used as a nerve block to reduce or block the nerve signal. The second method of relieving back pain using electrical muscle stimulation is to reduce the 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 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.
Another therapy used in our Ferndale Michigan chiropractic office is a ice 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 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 nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in Ferndale Michigan 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 mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. It is the pattern of electrode placement and the type of current which is used that helps reduce back pain.
A wonderful form of treatment to relieve back and leg pain by our Ferndale MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This is a manual form of treatment which uses the nervous system reflexes to inhibit the pain signal The principle of peripheral neurological facilitation is when the body contracts one muscle it reduces the signal sent to the opposing muscle group. 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. Back pain from muscles are especially considered for this type of treatment for the relief of pain.
