E-Stim Method for Pain Management
It is not easy to find help when dealing with pain issues. Chiropractic care is effective when it comes to managing pain. At Senft Chiropractic of Atlanta, we offer several natural treatment options for personal injuries, auto accident injuries, sports injuries, and chronic pain conditions for residents of Atlanta, GA.
One of the pain management treatments we use is E-stim. Our chiropractor, Dr. Craig Senft, uses this treatment method to give you pain relief in your body.
What Is Electrical Muscle Stimulation?
E-stim, also known as EMS, is a non-invasive pain management treatment that stimulates specific muscles. It contracts muscles and builds strength, thus, relieving pain in your body. Dr. Craig Senft, our chiropractor, uses EMS treatment to treat pain derived from injuries, muscle spasm, and post-surgery issues.
How Do Electrical Stimulation Treatments Work?
Our chiropractor attaches electrodes to the specific or designated muscle. These electrodes generate impulses like those sent by the brain. When they touch the muscles, they contract them, hence offering pain relief.
Alternatively, the doctor can use E-stim for pain management by applying the electrical impulses to the nerves. He can direct these impulses to the designated areas of the nervous system. This method blocks pain signals affecting the body and boosts endorphins, which are natural pain relievers.
Benefits of Chiropractic Treatments
Our doctor emphasizes the need for chiropractic treatments because they are beneficial for the whole body. When you are in pain you:
- Can’t sleep.
- Are stressed.
- Can't undertake your day-to-day activities.
With specialized treatment, you can enjoy non-surgical procedures to help your body heal naturally. That boosts your productivity and improves your overall wellness.
How Do We Determine if E-stim Will Work
Our chiropractor performs a physical exam to make the necessary diagnosis. Such an exam allows the doctor to get the correct information about your health. Muscle stimulation is not ideal for patients with pacemakers or implanted heart devices because it can affect their functionality. Also, treatment is discouraged for pregnant women and people with skin sensitivity issues.
