Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) which is also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation is a therapy we use at our office in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments and other treatments. EMS helps with musculoskeletal pain by activating muscles to contract very lightly to help decrease the pain that is coming from that area. When being used at our office we make sure that the muscles are only activated enough to help decrease the pain but not enough to show visible contraction or activation of the muscles. When it is being used this way you will feel a tingling sensation when the electric muscle stimulation is being used.
If you haven't tried EMS, come in today and we can show you how it works and how it can be beneficial in helping your back pain, shoulder injury, knee pain, neck pain, or whatever pain you are having.
