Electric Muscle Stimulation
Electric Muscle Stimulation in Rock Hill: Carolina Chiropractic
Dr. Donald Hewetson • Since 1985
Carolina Chiropractic provides electrical muscle stimulation to patients in Rock Hill and surrounding areas of South Carolina. Electric muscle stimulation is a physical rehabilitation therapy modality that is used to stimulate muscle contractions using electrodes hooked up to an electric stimulation machine at our facility. These contractions help to control pain, manage inflammation and strengthen the muscle.
The electrodes are placed on the effected areas of the patient’s body around the neck, back, shoulder, knee, ankle or wrist. The therapist will then adjust the controls of the machine until the patient feels a prickly sensation and is able to comfortably target the level of stim without burning, stinging or feeling a stabbing sensation. The stimulation will increase circulation and reduce swelling thereby reducing pain sensations.
