Electrical Stimulation in Buffalo
How Electrical Stimulation Helps Repair Injuries
The purpose of electrical stimulation is to relieve pain and stimulate muscles. This therapy works by sending small amounts of electrical stimulation, which mimic the actions of the nervous system, to damaged tissues in the body. The use of electrical stimulation can boost the body’s natural process for responding to pain, increase blood flow, and improve a patient's range of motion.
Some of the conditions we can use electrical stimulation to treat include:
- Chronic pain
- Increase local circulation
- Reduce muscle spasm
- Motor coordination
- Neuromuscular re-education
- Muscle atrophy
- Low back pain
What Happens During Electrical Stimulation?
The way we use electrical stimulation varies for each patient depending on their individual condition. If we implement electrical stimulation to help treat your condition or injury, the doctors at BCA-PT will walk you through the ins and outs of the procedure and what you can expect from your treatment.
In general, electrical stimulation involves the following steps:
- Exposing the area of the body being treated
- Applying electrodes to the skin that are connected to an electrical stimulation machine
You may feel a slight twitch as the muscle contracts repeatedly. Electrical stimulation is typically part of a broad treatment plan that works with other chiropractic components to treat the condition. Electrical stimulation is best used for healing weakened or atrophied muscles after an injury or surgery, and can help manage pain as well.
