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.
The practice offers home elecrical stimulation devices for patients as well. These "home" medical devices are frequently needed by patients during the acute and even chronic phases to support the healing process and this promotes increased regularity of treatment in the convenience of one's own home. Please ask our office staff if this home therapy device would be beneficial. For your convenience our staff can check insurance benefits for this popular modality.
