We provide Electrotherapy services
If an individual is not experiencing sufficient control of pain and other symptoms, electrotherapy—a treatment that directs mild electrical pulses to the problem area—may be an option. Electrotherapy is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by send a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body to release natural relievers of pain often referred to as endorphins. Some more benefits of electrotherapy are to: improve circulation, repair tissues, strengthen muscles, and promote bone growth, which will all lead to improvements in physical functioning.
