What Is E-Stim?
E-stim is an advanced form of treatment used to help individuals dealing with pain and muscle issues. E-Stim (interferential electrical muscle stimulation) is one of the state-of-the-art forms of therapy offered in our office. E-Stim uses electrical currents to address pain and to help in healing.
The pads are applied to the affected area and a gentle current of electricity is sent through the muscles. This gentle current of electricity can help tight, knotted muscles to relax. In addition, if you have experienced surgery, trauma, or a personal injury, this electrical stimulation will encourage increased blood flow to the area. This can jumpstart the healing process.
Who Should Use This Treatment?
When you visit our chiropractor, you will discuss your current pain levels and other health concerns. Our doctor will be able to determine from this evaluation if you are a good candidate for this treatment. If it is determined that you should not receive this form of treatment, our chiropractor will offer an alternative type of therapy.
Other Treatment Options
In addition to E-stim, there are many types of therapy available from your chiropractor. Chiropractic spinal adjustments are often very beneficial in correcting issues of the spine, back, and even other parts of the body. In most cases, spinal adjustment will be used as a base therapy for any chiropractic care.
Massage therapy can also have many health benefits. This type of therapy helps to relax muscles and relieves stress. Stress can often be an added factor to many health conditions. Finding healthy ways to combat stress is essential to your recovery and long term health.
Hot/Cold therapies have been found very beneficial for those suffering from chronic pain diseases.
