From pinched nerves to lower back pain, sooner or later most people will experience musculoskeletal issues. These musculoskeletal issues will pop up after a sports injury, auto accident injury, or even simple overuse of a muscle group with repetitive motions. Instead of turning to prescription medication or invasive surgery to relieve pain, you may prefer natural techniques to eliminate these problems. At Helvig Health Chiropractic, our chiropractor practices e-stim therapy, which is a natural and non-invasive method of pain relief.
What is E-Stim?
E-stim is short for electrical stimulation. It is a physical therapy modality that is utilized to accomplish several goals. The main purpose of e-stim therapy is to simulate what occurs in your body by voluntarily contracting and releasing muscles several times in a row. This process repairs and strengthens tissue, especially in muscles that have been weakened, shortened, or atrophied due to a personal injury, car accident injury, or chronic condition. If you have a chronic condition or injury that causes limited functional mobility or pain, you may benefit from e-stim therapy.
The Benefits of E-Stim Therapy
Benefits of electrical muscle stimulation include:
Improved blood circulation to the affected tissue to assist in repairing
Improved strength by working and flexing weak muscles
- Shortened tissue that is stretched to improve mobility
- Slowing down the muscle atrophy process by strengthening unused or weak muscles
- Training muscle fibers for specific response patterns
E-stim therapy can eliminate or reduce knee pain, elbow pain, lower back pain (including sciatica), shoulder pain, numbness, muscle fatigue, muscle spasms, and pinched nerves. E-stim is also great for treating pinched nerves.
