Electrical Stimulation 101
Electrical Stimulation is stimulation that is good for pain control. It helps to further relax your muscles as well as increase blood flow to the area – which speeds up the healing process and manage pain. Electrical stimulation isn’t as scary as it sounds; each machine has pads that help to conduct the electricity to your body. Each individual has different comfort levels for electric stimulation, and the stimulation machine is adjustable to that. Electrical stimulation can be applied to almost anywhere that you’re experiencing pain. This treatment is complementary to most physical therapy treatment and chiropractic adjustments, and isn’t usually used on its own.
