Electrical Nerve Stimulation
Did you injure your back severely and are suffering from constant pain? Do you experience muscle spasms that cause persistent and piercing aches in different parts of your body? This kind of constant muscle tightness and back pain can affect your ability to carry out your day-to-day activities comfortably.
While the term sounds a little intimidating, Electrical Nerve Stimulationis painless and non-invasive. When provided under the guidance and observation of a skilled and licensed therapist, it is an effective and safe modality that is useful in treating various conditions.
At our office, we use different modes of delivery and individual units. However, standard Electrical Nerve Stimulation devices have self-adhesive electrodes that are placed around the affected area for treatment. Wire leads connect the electrodes to the main unit, via which electricity passes and interacts with the motor and /or sensory nerves (depending on the current type).
We at Core Health Chiropractic and Wellness offers a range of pain relief treatments, including electrical nerve stimulation. Dr. Maylor recommends this treatment to alleviate muscle and back pain, which significantly improves your quality of life.
