Benefits of Chiropractic Electrical Muscle stimulation

Benefits of Chiropractic Electrical Muscle stimulation

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 24, 2020
Vida Chiropractic here in Newark - Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is a treatment method that involves electric currents delivered through the muscles to stimulate them for therapeutic effect. EMS is used to reduce pain, swelling, and recovery time. It is an increasingly popular treatment as it works well for soft tissue injuries, muscle spasms, and even for athletes who want quicker recovery from workouts. There are other benefits as well.

Hastens Recovery

Electric muscle stimulation treatment enables circulation to the injured part of the body to facilitate fast healing process. A muscle injury manifests as pain, weakness and reduced range of motion. Electric muscle stimulation hastens recovery and improve range of movement. The treatment enables the affected muscles to develop basic muscle tone and strength needed for advanced physical therapy.

Muscle Atrophy Prevention

Muscle atrophy is the condition wherein the muscle mass diminishes after an injury or due to a medical condition called Multiple Sclerosis. Electrical muscle stimulation can help prevent muscle atrophy by stimulation weakened muscles to contract through the use of low-level electrical currents. The intention is to keep muscles active despite the person being unable to move them alone.

Promotes Relaxation

Like massage therapy, electric muscle stimulation promotes relaxation while alleviating sore muscle pains. It can help relieve muscle tension by encouraging good circulation. It also stimulates the body to produce endorphins for a better mood.

Help Prevents Injury

Athletes undergo electrical muscle stimulation following strenuous workouts. The treatment helps reduce swelling and minimizes muscle sore. Moreover, it can prevent the risk of injury as it can keep muscles warm and less stiff.

How Chiropractors Help Auto Accident-Related Pain

Vida Chiropractic Newark, NJ - Auto Injury

Auto accidents, both low impact and high impact, often result in acute and systemic pain. Long-lasting conditions such as arthritis can result if not proactively treated properly. We routinely treat auto accident victims with whiplash and other accident-related spine and neck pain.

Whiplash happens when the body is thrown in one direction and then immediately after pulled in the opposite direction. This results to micro-tears which affect the surrounding ligaments. The pain can be unnoticeable on the day of the accident but when micro-tears begin to swell that other manifestation including unbearable pain set in. This includes headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, neck pain, shoulder pain, range of motion in the neck is reduced, neck stiffness, and low back pain.

So how does chiropractic care help?

  • Pain Relief - Injuries involving soft-tissues can take a while to completely heal, however, chiropractic care can render drug-free pain relief instantly. Most of our clients with this case report that their discomfort is dramatically lessened following few weeks of chiropractic care.
