What is Electric Muscle Stimulation?

Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is a device that sends small electrical currents through the skin and into the muscle fibers.

This gentle therapy helps reduce muscle spasms and decrease inflammation and swelling. EMS also helps increase blood supply to the affected area which helps the body heal faster and creates long-lasting pain relief.

How Electric Muscle Stimulation Helps You

Relieves Your Pain

Electrical Muscle Stimulation has been used in chiropractic, physical therapy, and medical offices for years. The electrical impulses help release endorphins, your body’s natural pain reliever, into the bloodstream. This helps to eliminate your shoulder pain quickly.

Reduces Muscle Spasms

We utilize Electric Muscle Stimulation with almost every client in our office. Clients that come to our office with pain, almost always have muscle spasms and inflammation. The electrical impulses are finely tuned to reduce these spasms and tightness.

Improves Healing

Injuries can take away the simple joys of life, and we want you to get back to normal as quickly as possible. Blood flow to a damaged area or areas of the body supplies vital nutrients and hydration, and it’s essential in the healing process.

Electric Muscle Stimulation stimulates the affected muscles, encouraging the blood flow in the area, allowing you to heal faster than with other treatments so you can get back to the things you love.
