Electrical Muscle Stimulation

There are now many different treatments to help alleviate aches, pains, and injuries of the body. One such treatment we offer at Personal Care Chiropractic in Arlington, MA, is Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS). Your experienced chiropractor, Dr. Nicholas Stamoulos, uses EMS to help reduce pain, swelling, and recovery time in his patients. Dr. Stamoulos is committed to offering his patients different treatments and technologies to help them feel their best.

EMS works great for muscle spasms, soft tissue injuries, and athletes who are looking for a quicker workout recovery time. EMS is popularly used on the back and neck muscles and has been successful in relieving acute and chronic pain. EMS is a simple treatment that only takes a few minutes to perform. Electrodes are placed on the affected areas and an electrical current is transmitted into the soft tissue or muscle. The strength of the current depends on the type of injury, its location, and how deep the therapy is going to be. The muscles experience small but quick contractions, which may make the patient feel a prickly or tingling sensation.

EMS is a great option for patients suffering from:
-Nerve inflammation
-Cancer-related pain
-Muscle injury from trauma
-Back pain
-Spinal cord injury
-Stroke recovery
-Muscle injury from disease
-Urinary incontinence
-Poor muscle strength
-Surgery recovery
