Electro-Muscle Stimulation

Dr. Johnson might recommend therapy for you. One of the common therapies at Johnson Chiropractic is Electro-Muscle Stimulation. This form of therapy uses 2-4 sticky pads on an area of soft tissue, usually muscles, to help with pain management by sending a small amount of electrical current to the tissue underneath the skin. This gentle current level is controlled by you and is easily adjusted up or down during your therapy which usually lasts 10-15 minutes. This electrical current can also help reduce spasms, swelling, and inflammation. Generally, patients feel a tingling sensation during this therapy. Depending on the location of the pads, you might sit in a chair or lay on your stomach.
