Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body to release natural relievers of pain often referred to as endorphins.

This is a great therapy if there is a spasm in a back or neck muscle. It works well in relaxing the muscle and allowing it to return to its normal state rather quickly. Short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing from acute and chronic pain.

In a chiropractic setting electrical muscle stimulation is generally used prior to an adjustmet. It relaxes contracted muscle tissue and in doing so prepares the treated region for the manipulation. Better movement is usually achieved in an area of normal muscle tone compared to one that is in spasm.
