ELECTRIC MUSCLE STIMULATION

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is used as an adjunct tochiropractic therapy for a patient who with muscles that are in spasm and pain.  A gentle electrical current is appliedcauses the muscle to contract, resulting in a tingling sensation which many patients find pleasant and relaxing.

The fast contractions cause the muscle to fatique and eventually relax, relieving the spasm and oftentimes the resulting pain from the spasm. The procedure can also result in the release of endorphins by the body which act as natural pain killers helping to further reduce pain in the affected area.

Electric Muscle Stimulation can be a great tool in a holistic approach to healing after an injury.
