The Electrical Muscle Stimulation Technique for Individuals in Clearwater, FL

At Back & Neck Pain Center in Clearwater, Florida, our chiropractor Dr. Venis utilizes a variety of techniques to help his patients achieve pain relief and enhanced quality of life. One such technique is electrical muscle stimulation, or EMS therapy. This treatment directs mild electrical impulses to an area of the back or neck to relieve muscle pain and muscle spasms. While patients may experience a slight tingling sensation during treatment, EMS therapy should feel comfortable and provide pain relief.

Benefits of Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical muscle stimulation can provide relief for acute or chronic pain, whether you’re suffering from persistent headaches, back pain, or a recent auto accident injury. Arthritis sufferers and those with chronic pain may also benefit from EMS therapy. Some of the many advantages of this chiropractic treatment include:

  • Reduced swelling
  • Increased circulation
  • Improved physical functioning of the muscles
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Restored muscle tone
  • Decreased muscle spasms

During the treatment, electrodes that are connected to an electrical stimulation device are placed on the affected area of the back or neck. Then, the electrode delivers a mild electrical current to the skin. The electrical stimulation machine has a variety of settings that deliver different effects depending on the patient’s most pressing need. For example, a patient who wants to reduce muscle spasms might need the interferential setting while a patient who is looking for relief from nerve pain may benefit from the micro-current setting. Dr. Venis takes his time with each patient to learn about their specific types of pain to customize the EMS therapy to their needs.
