Electrical Muscle Stimulation in Goose Creek, SC
Electrical Muscle Stimulation in Goose Creek, SC: Kidd Chiropractic and Wellness provides electrical muscle stimulation to patients in Goose Creek 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. These contractions help to control pain, manage inflammation and strengthen the muscle.
How Electric Muscle Stimulation Works
The electrodes are placed on the effected areas of the patient’s body (for example, around the neck, back, shoulder, knee, ankle or wrist). Dr. Kidd will then adjust the controls of the machine until the patient feels a prickly sensation and can comfortably target the level of stimulation without burning, stinging or a stabbing sensation. The stimulation will increase circulation and reduce swelling, thereby reducing pain sensations.
