Can E-Stim Therapy Treat Back Pain?, North Pole, Alaska

If you suffer from acute or chronic back pain, you may be wary of relying on habit-forming pharmaceuticals. Luckily, there are other options, and you can explore these natural alternatives to pain relief at North Pole Chiropractic in North Pole, AK. For example, they offer electric stimulation therapy, or E-stim, which is a form of physical therapy that sends electrical pulses to different areas of the body in order to promote healing and relieve pain. These gentle pulses are designed to reduce inflammation, and they prevent muscle spasms and cramping as well, which will relieve stiffness and soreness.

How Is E-Stim Performed?

During an E-stim procedure, your chiropractor will start by attaching four conducting pads around the affected area. Your provider will then turn on the machine and gradually increase the intensity, sending a light current through your body from pads on one side to those on the other. This may result in a tingling or numb sensation, but it does not cause any pain. The electric current will facilitate healing and help the muscles relax, relieving pain and stiffness. Many people find the treatment comfortable and even pleasant at times.

back painWhat Are the Benefits of E-Stim?

E-stim is a noninvasive form of treatment, and there are many benefits. In addition to relieving back pain and treating the cause at the source, it is totally natural, which means you do not have to worry about any chemical-induced side effects. E-stim is a safe approach for treating chronic back pain, especially for patients who have not been able to find relief with spinal adjustments or other forms of physical therapy.
