Electrical Muscle Stimulation

family

Also known as EMS, Electrical Muscle Stimulation is a form of electro therapy that uses a special type of electrical current to stimulate specific muscles.

With strategically-placed electrode pads, low levels of electrical current excite the targeted muscles producing rhythmic contractions.


Many Different Types

There are many types of electrical stimulation. Some are used to promote pain relief, reduce inflammation, avoid muscle atrophy and lessen muscle spasm:

Low Volt – For reducing muscle spasm and pain relief.

High Volt Galvanic– Muscle spasm reduction.

Russian Stimulation– Muscle strengthening.

Interferential– Pain and inflammation reduction.

Iontophoresis – A pain and swelling reduction technique.

Micro Current – Increase cellular metabolism to enhance healing.

We choose the approach that best matches your particular clinical presentation.


What Does EMS Feel Like?

At first, the electrical impulses can produce a slight tingling sensation. The impulses mimic the signals normally coming from your nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. As your body accommodates this muscle excitation, the intensity of your treatment may be slightly increased for maximum effect during the course of your 10- to 20-minute treatment.

What Our Patients Say

My interactions with the various staff members have exceeded my initial expectations. I am impressed and pleased the care given here does not stop at adjustments. Deep tissue massage and traction were incorporated in my care.

Dr. Gaulard was very compassionate and gentle, and after only a few visits, I am walking and able to bend, with ease, and much less pain. Thank you, so much, for getting me back on track.
