ELECTRIC MUSCLE STIMULATION

Electrical stimulation is a type of physical therapy modality used to accomplish various tasks in physical rehab. If you have an injury or illness that causes pain or limited mobility, your doctor may use electrical stimulation, or E-stim, as one part of your rehabilitation program.

Conditions in which electrical stimulation is used may include:

  • Low back pain

  • Post-surgical pain

  • For muscle weakness or poor motor control

  • Tendonitis

  • Bursitis

  • Extremity pain

  • Muscle spasm

If you are experiencing pain, spasm, inflammation, or muscular weakness, your Chiropractor may use this versatile modality as part of your treatment.
