Electrical Muscle Stimulation (Interferential Electrotherapy)

What is Electrical Muscle Stimulation?

Electrical Muscle Stimulation, like microcurrent therapy, emphasizes the use of electrical current to eliminate muscle cramps and alleviate nerve pain throughout the body. This process works through sending a very small electrical current using a TENS unit into the affected muscle spasm or soft tissue injury. Electrical stimulation utilizes this current in an effort to help release trigger points that may have constricted the muscle. Consequently, nerve stimulation also reduces swelling in inflamed areas. Acting as a nerve stimulator, the TENS machine helps the body in releasing endorphins, or an individual’s natural relievers.

Should I Try Electrical Muscle Stimulation?

Electrical stimulation therapy is a great, modern procedure for quickly healing acute and chronic pain and relieving tension in the body. Electrical stimulation is especially effective for spasms in a back or neck muscle. It works well in relaxing the muscle and allowing it to return to its normal state rather quickly. By virtue of its format, electrical muscle stimulation is a short and painless service for the kind of patient that wants immediate results.

What is Interferential Electrotherapy?

Interferential electrotherapy is an excellent method of helping the body deal with muscle cramps, sprains, spasms, and soft-tissue related issues. Chiropractic electrotherapy is a temperate experience for most patients, as the procedure is delicate enough to heal muscle.

How Does Interferential Electrotherapy Work?

By applying a low simulated frequency on soft tissue, this kind of therapy achieves pain relief in a way that other treatments cannot match. Electrotherapy simulates the body’s natural healing method by assisting to produce pain-killing endorphins. The electric muscle stimulator used in the process also helps with the release of muscle cramps, leading to back relief and alleviated spasms and sprains in other areas of the body.

What is Microcurrent Therapy?

Microcurrent therapy, similar to interferential electrotherapy is a simple yet rewarding way to help heal soft tissue in the body. This type of electrotherapy is also effective in removing body pain, including lower back pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain. Producing signals that replicate those naturally occurring in the body, microcurrent therapy uses only small amounts of current. This current is so small that it is almost unnoticeable to the patient.

Should I Try Interferential Electrotherapy?

Chiropractic electrotherapy is excellent for anyone who has back problems, shoulder problems, and neck problems, as well as any type of muscle cramps. Electrotherapy works quickly, returning muscles to their normal state in a short amount of time. For those who want to avoid chronic and acute pain, short electrotherapy sessions are exceptional in optimizing your body.
