Electric Muscle Stimulation in Minneapolis, MN: Dr. Scott Salita provides electrical muscle stimulation to patients in Minneapolis and surrounding areas of Minnesota. Electric muscle stimulation is a physical rehabilitation therapy modality that is used to stimulate muscle contractions using electrodes hooked up to an electric stimulation machine at our facility. These contractions help to control pain, manage inflammation and strengthen the muscle.
How electric muscle stimulation works
The electrodes are placed on the effected areas of the patient’s body around the neck, back, shoulder, knee, ankle or wrist. Dr. Salita or a member of his team will then adjust the controls of the machine until the patient feels a prickly sensation and is able to comfortably target the level of stim without burning, stinging or feeling a stabbing sensation. The stimulation will increase circulation and reduce swelling thereby reducing pain sensations.
Benefits of electric muscle stimulation
The main benefit of electrical muscle stimulation therapy is pain relief. The electrical current allows for the muscles to release tension, thereby relieving muscle soreness, tightness and body aches. For joint pains, electric muscle stimulation therapy also may improve joint symptoms as relaxation of the smooth muscles around a painful joint can help foster healing from joint inflammation.
