Electric stimulation therapy is a treatment that uses electrical currents to stimulate the body's nerves and muscles. This type of therapy has been used for many years to help treat a variety of conditions, including pain, muscle weakness, and even heart disease. At Family Wellness Center in Myrtle Beach, electric stimulation therapy helps treat a variety of conditions, such as anxiety and depression.
When is E-Stim Used?
Electrical stimulation therapy is often used as a treatment for pain. When electrical stimulation therapy is delivered through the skin, it can help block pain signals from reaching the brain. This type of therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of pain conditions, including:
Arthritis causes the patient to experience inflammation and pain in the joints. E-stim can help reduce this pain by blocking the pain signals from reaching the brain.
Chronic Back Pain
Chronic back pain is a common condition that can be difficult to treat. E-stim uses electrical currents to block pain signals from reaching the brain, which can help to reduce chronic back pain.
E-Stim for Muscle Weakness
Electric stimulation therapy can also be used to treat muscle weakness. This type of therapy can help to stimulate the muscles, which can help to improve muscle strength.
E-Stim for Heart Disease
Electric stimulation therapy is also being studied as a treatment for heart disease. This type of therapy has the potential to improve heart function and help prevent heart disease.

What to Expect During Electrical Stimulation
Before the treatment begins, our chiropractor will cleanse the area to be treated with an antiseptic solution. We will then place electrodes on the skin. The electrodes will deliver electrical impulses to the area being treated. You may feel a tingling sensation during the treatment. The intensity of the electrical stimulation can be adjusted to ensure that you are comfortable. The length of the treatment will depend on the condition being treated. Most treatments last between 20 and 30 minutes.
