Ferndale Michigan Chiropractors Eliminates Low Back Pain
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. Prior to the application of therapy to relieve back pain an understanding of the tissue causing the pain is necessary. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
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 MI chiropractors strategy will first be to understand what anatomy is involved in the lesion. We have found when we use therapies which reduce tissue inflammation, decrease the nerve conduction pain signal and reduce associated muscles we have significant effect in relieving back 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. 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. The reason pain results from inflammation is when the cells are damged the intracellular fluid increases the acidity and irritates the nerve endings. By using the pulsing action of the electrical muscle stimulation therapy pads we can essentially pump the tissue to reduce the inflammation and therefore back pain.
There is a common household product we use in our Ferndale MI chiropractic clinic is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. A cold pack will have two physiological effects in reducing back pain. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. By reducing the transmission of the nerve, the pain signal is minimized and therefore the patient has a reduction in back pain. When the inflammation of back pain is reduced the pain signal is reduced relieving back pain.
Our chiropractors in Ferndale Michigan may also Consider using a treatment called interferential current. 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. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. To maximize the effectiveness of the therapy it is important to consider the relationship of pad placement along with which modified current to use to relieve back pain.
A exclusive form of treatment to relieve back pain 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 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 is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
