Chiropractor in Pensacola FL - Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Interferential Electro-Stimulation Therapy
Electro-Stimulation Therapy has been used by Chiropractic Physicians for many years and has been proven to be very safe and effective.
Interferential Electro-Stimulation Therapy machines produce electrical currents that pass through the affected area of the patient. The current tends to penetrate deeper than other electrical modalities, such as TENS, and has a number of physiological effects that have therapeutic value. The physiological effects include:
· Increasing local blood flow which can improve healing by reducing swelling and as a result helps remove damaged tissue and bring nutrients necessary for healing to the injured area
· Stimulation of local nerve cells providing a pain reducing effect
· Muscle stimulation to overcome some of the muscle inhibition often caused by local injury and swelling
During treatment patient will feel a gentle humming sensation at the area being treated which may continue for a period following treatment.
