Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Another exceptional way to help the body in its healing process is through the use of Electrical Muscle Stimulation. This happens by sending an electrical current into the affected soft tissue, muscle spasm or injury. This stimulation therapy uses the current in an effort to reduce swelling and release the trigger points that are locking up the muscle. The body’s natural relievers of pain called endorphins are helped by this stimulation.
If you have either a neck or back spasm electrical muscle stimulation is a great therapeutic solution. Receiving concentrated stimulation works great to relax the muscle and allow it to return to its natural state. This will often facilitate the chiropractic adjustment and make the overall treatment much more effective. Sessions are short and do an excellent job relieving acute and chronic pain.
