Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical muscle stimulation is a special form of therapeutic electrical current that is administered at the site of soft tissue injury, especially muscles to aid in the relief of pain and promotion of soft tissue healing.

Applying tiny electrical pulses to specific areas of your body controls pain, increases blood and lymphatic circulation, reduces muscle spasm, relaxes or stimulates the nervous system and aids in the healing process. These special electrical signals release enkephalin and endorphin, two natural pain relievers.

Electrical muscle stimulation is generally recommended in cases where pain is accompanied by swelling and inflammation. Ligament sprains, muscle strains and spasms often respond to this treatment, helping to reduce atrophy and increase blood circulation. Our office offers a variety of different types of electrical muscle stimulation treatments. Call to find out more or to schedule your appointment – (330) 758-4446.
