The goal of chiropractic treatment is to increase movement in the joint and relax the muscles. At Health 1st Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, our doctors achieve this while using heat, ultrasound, and electrical muscle stimulation to help relax your muscles before doing spinal manipulation. During electrical muscle stimulation, electrodes are placed on the skin that sends light electrical pulses to different areas of the body with the purpose of reducing inflammation, curtailing muscle spasms and relieving back pain.
Electrical muscle stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This therapy utilizes a very small electrical current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. The feeling of this therapy is very gentle and most patients feel extremely comfortable during the treatment. In addition, this method of treatment stimulates the body’s natural healing method by helping it to produce natural pain killing endorphins.
