Muscle stimulation therapy, or e-Stim, is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation to treat pain and muscle spasms. At Bear Chiropractic Center we use this therapy to help build strength and prevent atrophy in patients with muscle injuries.
The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
Misaligned joints in the spine can hinder your movement, interrupting fluid circulation around the joints. This fluid circulation is vital for your spinal discs to receive the nutrients they need. The disruption of fluid circulation can eventually lead to thinning discs, which can impact your long-term range of motion.
