STIM – Electric Muscle Stimulation Therapy
The electrical muscle stimulation machine, also known as E-STIM, sends mild electrical pulses through the skin to help stimulate injured muscles or manipulate nerves to reduce pain. This process is applied to the body for 12 minutes and will reduce stress and discomfort while also improving blood flow and circulation.
Ultrasounds are sound waves that can penetrate the skin up to 4 inches. This process can relax muscles, tendons and ligaments, while increasing blood flow and breaking down scar tissue. Ultrasound therapy is applied to the area for 8 minutes. This reduces inflammation, which decreases pain and helps with healing.
