It is pain-free and can be done in just minutes at an outpatient chiropractic clinic.
At ChiroCare, Dr. Gilliam serves residents in Fairlawn, Bath, and Copley with a wide range of chiropractic treatment modalities, including electrical stimulation therapy. We will not stop until we help you find relief from your chronic or acute pain, either using electrical stimulation therapy or other chiropractic techniques.
What Is Electrical Stimulation Therapy?
As the name suggests, this is a type of therapy that sends tiny electrical signals directly to the injured muscles or areas of pain in the body. Depending on whether you are looking for help to recover from injuries, or find pain relief, E-stim can be used in a variety of ways.
One method is to send electrical signals directly to the muscles to signal for them to contract. These contractions over time strengthen the muscle and can help encourage blood flow to the area. This helps promote natural healing and can improve your mobility and flexibility after surgery.
Another method of E-Stim involves sending electrical signals to block neurons that send pain signals to the brain and the rest of the body. This is a powerful form of pain relief treatment applied directly to the muscles.
Chiropractors Can Help
Our chiropractor will administer your E-Stim therapy during your session. We will perform a comprehensive physical exam, imaging tests such as x-rays, and take a medical history, to determine if E-Stim therapy is right for you. We will walk you through the procedure, which is painless and involves placing patches directly on targeted areas of the body.
