Benefits of Adding Electrical Muscle Stimulation to Chiropractic Care Plans
Chiropractic care utilizes the most natural and effective methods of healing and pain relief. At Champion Chiropractic in Cave Creek, AZ, one of the various methods that Dr. Krahl offers is electrical muscle stimulation. Learn more about this technique and how it can complement other techniques below.
It Enhances the Natural Recovery Process
Electrical muscle stimulation causes the muscles to contract. When this happens, blood can flow to the injured area better. It also stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries waste away. This helps speed up the healing process and enhances the results of any other chiropractic methods used in your treatment.
It Keeps the Muscles Strong
Injuries can leave muscles weakened, as they can’t be used as they were before. And weakened muscles can lead to more injuries. Electrical muscle stimulation is a great way to strengthen muscles, keeping them active and healthy during recovery. It also helps prevent injuries from occurring in those muscles again.
It Helps the Muscles Relax
As the muscles contract, blood and endorphins flow freely. Once the contraction is released, the muscles are able to relax – and you have a boost of natural painkillers. In these ways, electrical muscle stimulation can provide a similar advantage to deep tissue massage.
Not only does this relieve muscle tension and spasms for you to feel better, but it also enhances adjustments, as there is no wall of tension preventing the chiropractor from making a full adjustment. And as the tension is gone, there is less of a chance that misalignment will occur again as the muscles aren’t pulling on the skeletal system.
It’s Effective for Many Conditions
The technique is so effective that it is used for a variety of conditions, including but not limited to:
- Joint pain
- Chronic back pain
- Muscle atrophy
- Nerve inflammation
Many athletes also use it post-workout and to enhance their athletic performance. It has also been helpful in helping stroke victims and those who have lost motor skills.
