At West Side Chiropractic
Electric muscle stimulation is a method of chiropractic care in which electric currents are sent through the muscles in order to make them contract. Therapy generally lasts no longer than 10 minutes. During that time, you will likely feel a tingling sensation and experience a repetitive tensing in the muscle. However, therapy should never be painful. When doing therapy, sticky electrode pads will be placed on your skin around the area that needs to be targeted with stimulation. Perhaps the greatest benefit is its ability to speed up the recovery process during injury rehabilitation, helping to relieve pain in the back of legs, reduce swelling, and promote general muscle toning.
