What is Chiropractic EMS Therapy and how does it work?
Chiropractic Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy involves the use of low-level electrical charge to particular parts of the body and is a gentle, safe, and effective way of getting over a musculoskeletal problem caused by an injury. EMS is perfect for patients who want to get rid of the pain while treating the spasm, sprain, or strain or other soft tissue injuries.
Before you come to us for EMS, we would like you to read this information to know more about the therapy and how it affects your injury and the pain. Also called neuromuscular electrical stimulation, EMS is used in our chiropractic practice in North Wales, PA, to deal with the specific muscle and nerve groups that have been impacted by the injury. EMS works by helping the body to relax and allowing the pain and discomfort to ease off. By doing this, it lets the natural recovery process of the body to do its job. Once the body is relaxed, we are able to progress to therapeutic exercises for the associated area, which helps in the recovery of the injured area.
In many situations, EMS is also used to calm spasm. The electrical stimulation fatigues the muscles, causing them to relax. When there is a risk of weakening muscles due to an injury, EMS can be used to gently exercise the muscle in question without deteriorating the condition of the injured area in any way. Our office also uses muscle stim to provide immediate pain reduction, lessening your dependency on medication.
