Electric Stim Therapy

What is Electric Stim Therapy?

Electric therapy is a form of non-invasive chiropractic therapy that uses electrical stimulation to treat muscle pain and spasms. Electrical stimulation uses tiny pulses of low frequency electricity to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. By placing electrodes on the skin throughout different parts of the body, we are able to help contract the muscle via electrical stimulation and help strengthen the affected muscle. Electrical stim therapy is not painful and the setting can be changed to allow for a forceful or gentle muscle contraction. Along with increasing muscle strength, the contraction of the muscle also promotes blood supply to the area that assists in healing.

Electric therapy mimics what happens within human cells by working to enhance the physiological processes. A study coordinated by Prof. Bert Op ‘Eijnde, from the University of College in Hasselt, Belgium, shows that electric stim therapy has a positive and statistically significant effect in improving endurance and reducing fatigue and chronic pain. Electric stimulation works at a cellular level to boost energy and restore homeostasis.

Electric therapy does not hurt. It progresses from a gentle tingling into a massage-like sensation as the frequency is increased. The therapy normally lasts anywhere from ten to 15 minutes, often with the use of hot or cold compresses depending on the type of pain. Patients who come to our Oakland Park clinic will always feel comfortable. Side effects can include mild tenderness, short-term redness and minor skin irritation. Our goal at USA Health and Therapy is to help our patients not hurt them!

  • " Have been adjusted by over 50 chiros in my life and Dr Craig is right up there with the best. His method of relaxing each client (hydro-jet-bed then massage) before the adjustment really helps. There is also a physical therapist with his own therapy room to help get your range of motion back like he did for me. VERY REASONABLE pricing and VERY flexible hours SO PLEASE be nice and try to avoid his lunch hour so he and his staff can eat because the poor guy refuses to say no. "
