At Roy A. Logan Chiropractic Clinic, we are proud to offer our chiropractic patients a full menu of muscle pain management services and therapeutic treatment modalities. Our chiropractor and his support team believe in finding a variety of treatment modalities to treat a range of injuries and conditions. More importantly, Dr. Logan believes in looking at each patient as a unique individual. He tries to find the best treatment that will help heal the condition and relieve pain by working to understand factors that may not show up on an X-Ray or in traditional medical history files.
We will work with you to try to understand whether there are underlying reasons for your injury or chronic condition, such as work or family stress, overtraining in exercise, or poor exercise and eating habits, judgment free of course. We only want to help you enjoy a life without pain. Before we start working on long-term recovery and overall health, we need to get you past the muscle pain.
One of our premier therapeutic treatment therapies for muscle spasms and muscle pain is electrical muscle stimulation. This type of therapy, also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electrostimulation, causes muscle stimulation and contraction by the emission of electric impulses. Electrical muscle stimulation is a treatment that we frequently use with our patients who are athletes. Whether training for a marathon, going to football practice or playing tennis all summer, this therapeutic modality can help. While this therapy is popular among active exercisers, it can help anyone suffering from intense muscle pain.
Besides the sheer relief of muscle pain this therapy provides, we can also offer a few more reasons you might want to pursue this electrical muscle stimulation treatment for muscle spasms, pain, and soreness
Electrical stimulation therapy prevents muscular atrophy and builds strength for patients with muscle injuries.It also helps to keep muscles active when not in use, due to injury or illness, such as spinal cord injury or enduring a stroke and its after effects. Maintaining circulation and muscle tone, even in this passive way, helps immensely with recovery.
It may help you to know what to expect from the process of this therapy that actually mimics the way the body uses and exercises its muscles. We will gently, carefully, and safely attach electrodes to your skin where you feel muscle pain. When we start the machine, those electrodes will deliver impulses to induce muscle contractions to improve range of motion and circulation.
