What Is Electrical Stimulation and How Does It Work?

Electrical stimulation, also referred to as E-stim or EMS, is a form of therapy that can address both issues in the nerves and the muscles. Electrodes or small pads are applied to the target area. Electrical pulses are then sent to the body through these electrodes to aid in recovery. Where exactly it is applied and the results depend on the goal of the treatment.

When electrical stimulation is utilized to strengthen or heal issues in a muscle, the electrodes are applied to the target muscle group. The electrical pulses cause the muscles to contract, providing two results. The first is that these contractions help to build muscle and prevent atrophy. The second is that it causes blood to flow to the muscles, kickstarting the body’s natural healing process.

Electrical stimulation is also helpful in addressing pain. When this is the goal, the electrodes target the nervous system. This helps to block pain signals to the brain as well as promote the production of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain relievers.

Conditions Electrical Stimulation Can Treat

Chiropractors use electrical stimulation for a variety of conditions, including those listed below.

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Stroke
  • Muscular atrophy
  • Joint pain
  • Back pain
  • Spinal cord injuries

The Benefits of Using Electrical Stimulation

Electrical stimulation offers many benefits on its own, but it’s not used as a solitary treatment. Instead, it is combined with other powerful and natural methods to provide optimal results.

When you visit Starwood Chiropractic, you will experience a personalized approach to healing and recovery. You will start with a comprehensive evaluation and discussion of the condition and symptoms you are suffering from as well as your health goals.

Our team at Starwood Chiropractic will then work with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses your needs and concerns. In addition to electrical stimulation, your plan might include adjustments, physical therapy, and more.
