Muscle Stimulating Therapies-Help Muscle Spasms & Promotes Healing

ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION

This is an exceptional therapy to help the body in the healing process. Electrical Muscle Stimulation sends a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. This therapy helps to reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up by helping the body release natural relievers of pain, known as endorphins. This therapy is an excellent way to help with muscle spams because it relaxes the muscle, allowing it to return to its normal state quickly. Electrical Muscle Stimulation in short therapy sessions are excellent in assisting your body to heal from chronic and acute pain. 

INTERFERENTIAL ELECTRO-THERAPY

Interferential Electro-Therapy is an excellent method of helping the body deal with spasms, sprains, and issues related to soft tissues. This therapy accomplishes this with a very low simulated frequency that is put on the soft tissue. The feeling of this therapy is very light and most patients feel very comfortable during the treatment. In addition to this therapy simulating the body's natural healing method by helping it to produce natural pain killing endorphins, it also helps with the release of these strains, spasms and soft tissue issues. 

MICRO CURRENT THERAPY

Microcurrent Therapy is an exceptional way to help heal the body, namely soft tissues. It is also an effective way to relieve pain within the body. The therapy utilizes very small amounts of current to produce signals that replicate those occurring in the body naturally. This current is very small and is almost unnoticeable to the patient. 

This is a great therapy if there is a spasm in a back or neck muscle. It works well in relaxing the muscle and allowing it to return to its normal state rather quickly. Short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing from acute and chronic pain.

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound is a therapy that is utilized in the office to handle injuries related to joints, muscle spasms, as well as most soft tissues. While it shares the same name, this ultrasound is not the same as the type of ultrasound utilized diagnostically to screen internally in the body. This ultrasound creates small sound waves that in effect vibrate and massage soft tissues and muscle. These sound waves do an excellent job in facilitating the body's healing process in addition to decreasing scar tissue formation. 

Certain ultrasounds also create a heating effect to help relax the muscles or tightness in the body. This heat combined with the overall features of the ultrasound help to start the healing process at the most basic cellular level speeding up your road to recovery.

Benefits of Therapeutic Ultrasound

 

  • Dilates the blood vessels which increases flow of oxygen and nutrients 

  • Penetrates the tissues up to one half inch bringing therapeutic heat to deep tissues  

  • Decrease deep joint and muscular stiffness

COLD LASER THERAPY

Cold Laser Therapy is an excellent treatment that is often utilized to treat a wide array of conditions and pain. This therapy allows the body to naturally heal itself by utilizing a combination of electric stimulation and cold laser technology. This low level laser therapy consists of a light-emitting device that can be utilized on many different parts of the body. 

In addition to simple back and neck pain, cold laser therapy has been utilized for a number of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis and sprains. The number of conditions that have been notably increased in the usage of this therapy include carpal tunnel syndrome, wound management, shoulder and neck injuries, muscle and joint pain, as well as a long list of others. 

  • Pain Relief – Laser light encourages the body to release more endorphin, a natural pain-killer, and it also reduces or eliminates some of the sources of chronic pain

  • Reduced Swelling – If you are recovering from an injury but inflammation is getting in the way, cold laser therapy may calm swollen tissue to make it easier for your body to start healing

 

  • Faster Healing – By stimulating blood flow and increasing cellular activity, cold laser therapy helps kick-start or speed up the body’s natural regrowth of new cells

 

Because the laser light only penetrates the surface of the skin, it doesn’t come with the same risks as surgery or hot lasers.
