At Vitality Health Medical & Chiropractic our NYC Chiropractor uses adjunctive therapies including Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation or Electric Muscle Stimulation commonly called e-stim.
Electric Muscle Stimulation alleviates pain caused by muscle spasm which can oocur when muscles are over strained.
Electric Muscle Stimulation originally developed to help athletes attain greater muscle mass and was utilized as part of physical training.
The technology has been developed to help post surgical patients rebuild muscle that has been reduced or atrophied due to inactivity from lack of mobility.
Electric muscle stimulation may be used as part of a comprehensive treatment that combines chiropractic with physical therapy, medical massage and acupuncture.
