Electrical Muscle Stimulation
 
Granite Bay Chiropractor | Granite Bay chiropractic Electrical Muscle Stimulation |  CA |

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.

Depending on the type of stim used, we can also create muscular contraction which is a bit like working the muscles without requiring effort by the patient.  This tends to pump blood through the muscles and can help release muscle spasm, thereby enhancing comfortable range of motion and actually relaxing the muscle pre or post therapy.
