What Is Electric Muscle Stimulation?

When applied to the body tissue, electric currents from “e-stim” create thermal, physiological, and chemical responses that can alter pain impulses and speed up the recovery process by encouraging blood flow to the treatment area. E-stim helps the body’s natural healing process while reducing swelling, promoting general muscle tone, and it is quite relaxing, with benefits similar to massage therapy as it relieves sore, aching muscles and aids in stress relief. 

How Does E-Stim Work?

Your chiropractor will attach the e-stim device with pads called electrodes to the skin to the affected body tissue. The electrodes deliver specific, brief impulses through the e-stim device that vary in intensity to repeatedly contract and relax the muscles and help repair soft tissues. Each session lasts about 10 to 15 minutes, and afterward, you can go right back to your regular routine.
