The Benefits of Electrical Muscle Stimulation
The use of electrical muscle stimulation has been around for quite a while. It has been used to treat sports injuries, neck pain and back pain, among other issues. The purpose of this advanced form of therapy is to stimulate the muscle tissue and nerves, causing the muscles to contract. This increases blow flow to the area which encourages natural healing.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation Treatment in Littleton
There are many symptoms that can be treated with electrical stimulation therapy, whether it's headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain or even pain in the extremities. The muscles are stimulated with a mild electrical current through electrodes that are placed on the target area of the body. The therapy begins by targeting the painful area of the body with a low setting. The doctor will slowly increase the frequency until the patient reaches the level they're comfortable with. The stimulation treatment will take about 10 minutes or as long as the chiropractor deems necessary for the area being treated.
