Electrical Muscle Stim

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is a pain, swelling, and recovery time reduction therapeutic approach. Soft tissue injuries, muscular spasms, and even sportsmen who wish to recuperate faster from exercises benefit from this increasingly popular treatment.

What Is Electrical Muscle Stimulation and How Does It Work?

This procedure is carried out at our office and takes only a few minutes. The machine is turned on after electrodes are implanted on the skin over the afflicted area. After that, an electrical current is passed through the soft tissue or muscle. The amount of current used is determined by the damage, its location, and the depth of the therapy. The muscles contract at a very modest but rapid rate as a result of the electrical current. Patients may experience a prickly or tingling feeling during treatment; however, these symptoms will decrease once the machine is turned off, or shortly thereafter. The experience is enjoyed by many patients.

Both acute and chronic pain benefit from electrical muscle activation. Ask your chiropractor if electrical muscle stimulation is correct for you if you’ve been suffering from pain or have just sustained an injury.
