Muscle Stimulation (E-Stim)

Female with device on back An injury or illness can lead to muscular atrophy and make it hard for muscles to contract. Inducing movement in an affected muscle can assist in the recovery process. Chiropractic Muscle Stimulation (E-Stim) is a therapy that causes muscles to contract and may reduce your discomfort during rehabilitation. Dr. John Tuttle offers E-Stim and other non-invasive treatments to encourage the healing process. Learn about the benefits of E-Stim today.

How Does Chiropractic Muscle Stimulation Work?

Chiropractic Muscle Stimulation or E-Stim is a specialized medical treatment that uses electric currents to induce muscle contraction. It is non-invasive and clients may lay down while undergoing the therapy. Patients do not experience pain from the therapy. In fact, many find a session an enjoyable experience.

The Benefits of E-Stim

You may benefit from including E-Stim as part of an individualized treatment program. As a non-invasive therapy, E-Stim has shown to be an effective treatment for many. A care plan including this therapy offers significant benefits like:

  • Improving blood flow to an area of injury, promoting the healing process in affected areas.
  • Increasing muscle tone and muscle strength in weakened muscles.
  • Strengthening the link between muscle movement and your brain, making it easier to move from easier exercises to more complex tasks.
  • Preventing or slowing muscle atrophy, or a decrease of muscle mass.
  • Encouraging relaxation, as the therapy releases tension in muscles, and encourages endorphin production.

Individuals who have chronic conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and athletes who are looking to enhance their performance can both benefit from E-Stim. Those with MS can experience a reduction in muscle tension and discomfort after a session, making movement easier. Athletes can use E-Stim to reduce swelling and soreness after a workout. It can also be used to decrease muscle stiffness as part of injury prevention. Speak with Dr. Tuttle  today to explore your treatment options.

Start on the Path to Recovery

After undergoing an initial evaluation, E-Stim may be incorporated into an individualized treatment program to reduce pain and speed up recovery. Patients may pair E-Stim with massage therapy, chiropractic treatments, and other services at Signature Health Clinic. Patients undergoing E-Stim may need multiple treatments depending on their condition and their individual response.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I've been seeing Dr. Tuttle for over 6 months, and he's been a huge help. Dr. Tuttle goes over and above - where other doctors only saw the alleviation of pain and swelling, Dr. Tuttle has helped me with my posture, core strength, breathing, and stress. I recommend him whole heartedly.

    Best of best! I had car accident last March, and I had been treated Dr. Tuttle. He was very caring and his treatment was very effective. My Shoulder pain improved dramatically and back pain is completely gone! I recommend him to everyone especially to who experience motor vehicle accident.

    I love Chiropractic Center of Raleigh Hills. I have been going there for over 4 years. It's awesome the staff is knowledgeable and accessible. Dr. Tuttle has rehabbed me through many an injury and also helped me to avoid surgery on my knee. If you are an athlete or just looking for some relief from daily aches and pains people with Dr. Tuttle's skill set are invaluable. Also, it is super convenient because they also have a sports rehab center next door and a massage therapist as well.
