Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation Champlin, MN

Achieve Health Chiropractic, located in Champlin, MN uses electrical muscle stimulation, also called e-stim or EMS as a way to shake the muscles and prevent muscle atrophy. Electronic Muscle Stimulation is a good rehabilitation tool for when a patient has been suffering from strong injuries or has been in bed for a long time. Our EMS device sends controlled electric impulses in order to stimulate muscles, which can offer both pain relief and muscle re-education.

Pain Relief with Electrical Muscle Stimulation

The electrical muscle stimulation devices we use for rehabilitation send controlled pulses that stimulate the muscles to contract and relax. This process loosens the muscle fibers and increases blood flow, which helps in the recovery of muscle injuries and pain relief. We can control the intensity, pulse width, and wave patterns.

Muscle Re-Education with Electrical Muscle Stimulation

When someone is bedridden for a long period of time, performing normal daily activities can be difficult, if not impossible… Electrical muscle stimulation has been found beneficial when muscles have become unresponsive and need to be retrained to function. When voluntary muscle movement is non-responsive, electrical stimulation can offer potential restoration.

Benefits of Electrical Muscle Stimulation:

  • Prevent Muscle Stimulation
  • Improve Musculoskeletal Injuries – bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, joints
  • Increase Blood Circulation
  • Relax Muscles Spasms
  • Reduce Pressure Sores

Fast Track Your Recovery

Electrical muscle stimulation is basically done by stimulating some parts of the body. For this purpose, an electronic device is used, the little electrodes of which are out directly on the body areas that need to be stimulated. A slow tension is then put on the wires, and muscle stimulation is done. By dialing the voltage, you can pick different pressure on the muscles, for creating various effects.

Combining Restorative Therapies

Our chiropractors often suggest electrical muscle stimulation in conjunction with our other alternative healthcare approaches, such as Chiropractic Adjustments, Acupuncture, Physical Therapy and Nutrition. We believe the best approach to your recovery is a collaboration of beneficial techniques that complement each other. We are dedicated to your recovery and will help you find the best path for success.
