What Is Muscle Stimulation?
Muscle stimulation is the contracting of the muscles using an electrical device placed directly on the skin. This electrical muscle stimulation device sends electrical signals to the surrounding muscle tissues, allowing them to contract in varying levels of intensity.
Although it might feel a bit uncomfortable, muscle stimulation can be used effectively with the help of a chiropractor. It does not cause long-lasting pain, and is essential in helping people feel relief from pain.
How Does Muscle Stimulation Work?
The contracting of the muscles is, in essence, how they grow and get stronger. Think about lifting weights with your biceps. The more you contract the muscle, the larger it grows and the more blood flow is sent to the muscles.
Muscle stimulation mimics this process in targeted areas of the body. The extra blood flowing to the muscles boosts circulation, promotes healing, and can help your muscles grow stronger.
This is why electrical muscle stimulation devices are used for athletes and regular people suffering from pain. Athletes can benefit from muscle stimulation therapy, as it helps repair damaged tissues and improves overall physique when paired with a good exercise regimen. Regular people visiting their chiropractor can also benefit from muscle stimulation and heal faster using this type of therapy.
Can My Chiropractor Help My Pain?
Your chiropractor will administer muscle stimulation therapy as well as determine if this is the best type of treatment for you. If you find muscle stimulation to be too uncomfortable, your chiropractor can determine other treatments such as muscle stretches and muscle exercises for improved mobility and strength.
Your chiropractor can also administer muscle stimulation for up to 15 minutes a day and during multiple sessions.
