Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), also known as E-Stim therapy, uses electrical pulses to cause the sore or tense muscles of the body to spasm and contract. NMES is used for the treatment of sport or auto accident injuries, illnesses, excessive exercise, autoimmune disorders, and several other types of conditions. NMES is not painful if done correctly, as it only sends a small electrical pulse through the muscles. This is done by placing small pads on targeted areas of the body and administering electrical pulses.
One of the benefits of NMES is faster recovery of the injured area due to better blood flow and circulation. This also reduces inflammation. E-Stim therapy can also reverse muscle atrophy and reduce muscle spasms. NMES can be used for the treatment of fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic pain, headaches, migraines, fatigue, and other types of conditions.
If you are an athlete, NMES therapy can help your muscles recover faster by reducing soreness that can adversely affect performance. It can also help prevent injuries by keeping your muscles relaxed and less stiff. Another benefit of NMES is that it can provide a calming and relaxing experience for you. This can help relieve tension in your body and encourage proper blood flow. It can help release endorphins, which helps your mood and reduces feelings of anxiety and stress.
As the first step to treatment, our chiropractor will do a physical examination to determine where your pain is coming from. We can then create a personalized treatment plan for you and your conditions. Our chiropractor will determine if NMES is the right treatment for you. We may use electrical stimulation in tandem with other treatment methods.
