Electrical Muscle Stimulation
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 an effective therapy if there is spasm in any area of the back or neck. It works well in relaxing the muscles and allowing them to return to its normal state rather quickly. Short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing from acute and chronic pain.
