Muscle Stimulation Therapy in Garden City, MI
Muscle stimulation therapy (or electric muscle stimulation) is a technique used widely among chiropractors. From muscle pain alleviation to inflammation reduction, to injury rehabilitation, this type of therapy delivers painless and effective results.
Small electrodes are placed on the skin, sending signals to the targeted muscles that cause them to contract in short, rapid movements. The result is enhanced blood flow and a release of endorphins that bring relief to the affected areas.
What to Expect
Many patients describe a “tingling” sensation felt during muscle stimulation therapy. In fact, such feelings can provide instant relief from targeted muscle discomfort.
The chiropractors execute the procedure with great care, paying close attention to the patient’s comfort and the appropriate level of stimulation needed. Most treatments are performed in less than 30 minutes, and while some patients experience mild tingling directly after the electrodes have been removed, there should be no lasting sensations or discomfort.
Is It Only for Your Back?
While most muscle stimulation therapy is performed on the back, this versatile procedure can be used on many other parts of the body, including hands, calves, and forearms. The small pads placed on the body are non-invasive and removed cleanly. Virtually anywhere there is muscle pain or discomfort, muscle stimulation therapy can provide relief.
