Electrical Stimulation Therapy

Electrical Stimulation Therapy
at Rochester Hills Chiropractic Center

Chiropractic therapy has gone through a lot of changes in the past few years, and Dr. Ron Fried, our Rochester Hills chiropractor, has continued to include advanced technology in our service offerings.  It is no longer simply twisting and manipulating the body to regain proper alignment in the spine. There have been several technological advances in the equipment and techniques use in chiropractic care and treating body pain. 

Electrical stimulation therapy is one of the more recent innovations in the world of physical therapy and sports medicine, and we provide this service at our Rochester Hills chiropractic clinic.  As an adjunct to chiropractic treatment, this therapy works especially well with massage for back pain, neck pain, headache problems and many other issues. Ron Fried, our chiropractor in Rochester Hills, has included this treatment in our services as he sees how the therapy complements both massage and spinal adjustments and maximizes pain relief.  This therapy is often utilized in sports medicine and is often prescribed by our chiropractor to help patients recover quicker.

More and more, electrical stimulation has been included in the top chiropractic offices as a means to relieve inflamed muscles and nerves.  It aids our chiropractor in his treatments by allowing the strained muscles to relax, which facilitates and encourages natural healing.  This ultimately means that you, the patient, will be able to recover faster and experience long term relief.  This is especially useful in a physical therapy plan as the muscles are retrained and stimulated to return to normal function.

Pain Relief through Electrical Stimulation Therapy

Electrical stimulation therapy is used to relieve headaches, shoulder pain, neck pain, back pain as well as pain in the extremities. The therapy works by stimulating the muscles with a mild electrical current.  Electrodes are first placed at the appropriate points on the patient's skin.  We begin the therapy with a low setting and increase the frequency until the patient has reached their comfort level with the electrodes.  Then the patient is allowed to be in this relaxing therapeutic state for 10 minutes or longer, depending on what our chiropractor prescribes.  Ice packs are also placed over the electrodes to further ease the pain and reduce the swelling.

This therapy works by causing a relaxation of tense muscles and an alleviation of the swelling that is frequently involved.  Most of the time, we do not think of pain in terms of inflammation, but for the most part, that is precisely what causes pain.  After a few visits, the inflammation in your muscles and nerves will be gone altogether or significantly reduced.  Dr. Fried may also prescribe massage therapy and a nutrition plan to speed up and aid rehabilitation for patients.

Electrical stimulation treatment is one of the many state of the art therapeutic techniques we have available at our Rochester Hills Center. If you would like to know more about this therapy or the other services we provide, we invite you to call us at 248-652-3343.

Testimonial

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Ron is a highly skilled chiropractor. He is attentive to all of his patients, and takes the time to look at the "whole picture". He takes a non-invasive approach, explains how adjustments work, and can accomplish spinal manipulation in a variety of manners, including a more gentle approach if you are apprehensive. He continually studies, and stays up on the latest information and technology. Highly recommended!

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
