Electric Muscle Stimulation for Strains,Sprains, Tendonitis, Bursitis and Capsulitis
Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) for Strains uses sinewave stimulators to contract or tetanize muscles that are in spam. the end result is a pumping action of blood (nutrients and Oxegen) in, and waste products out, which reduces spasm and enhances healing. EMS units are safe and effective for muscle strains. We usually combine them with either ice or heat.
High Voltage Galvanic Stimulation has all the benefits of EMS with addtional polarity and the abiltiy to produce pain reduction. HVG is awesome for trigger point therapy as well. This therapy is better suited for deeper musclular and ligamentous conditons.
Interferential Stimulation has most of the beneftis of EMS and HVG above with the addtion of better pain management and the abilty to treat deep within the joints and muscles. This currents frequency computer driven sends a healing current from one electode to the other and will penetrate thorugh the shoulder and knee. Its can be set for reducing edema, pain control and Russian Stimulation. This modality is better suited for treating Sprains, Tendonitis, Bursitis and Capsulitis. It works with all joints and can create pain relief directly.
Russian Stimulation is used for stengthening the muscles and rehabiltiating soft tissues. '
Microcurrent stimulation the healer. Microcurrent is not ussually felt like all the above stimulators. The current changes the permiabiltiy of the cell walls allowing fluids and nutrtients to move freely again and this creates cellular reproduction or new cells called healing. It is very good with treateint the extremeities and supeficial musculoskeletal areas. It is also good for pain reduction but lacks muscle spasm reduction.
