How Interferential Electrical Muscle Stimulation Can Help You

Have you heard of the technology called interferential electrical muscle stimulation, IEMS for short, and its ability to help you reduce chronic pain?  IEMS sends minor electrical impulses in minute quantities through your skin through electrodes and to your muscles.  It has been effective in reducing pain, inflammation, edema, and muscle spasms.  Frequencies produced by IEMS have been shown to increase endorphins in the body, thus increasing dopamine levels and other hormones to help you feel your best.  If you are in need of a chiropractor near Holbrook, Connetquot Chiropractic offers this service along with many others with the leadership of our experienced chiropractic doctors. 

What to expect with Interferential Electrical Muscle Stimulation therapy?

You can expect a relatively quick process where small electrodes are attached to affected parts of your body.  You can expect small pricks, but you will not feel any shock or forms of pain.  There are very little side effects, with the small possibility of developing a heat rash.  For this reason, IEMS is usually contraindicated in areas of open sores or infection.  It is important to consult with a chiropractor if you would be a candidate for IEMS therapy.  

How Interferential Current Therapy Helps the Muscles Heal

  • Stimulates motor nerves to help strengthen the muscle and decrease spasms

  • Stimulates peripheral nerves to help increase endorphins and anti-inflammatory markers in the body

  • Causes an analgesic effect in the area to help reduce pain in the affected muscle

  • Accelerates bone healing and decreases edema by stimulating the lymphatic system to drain fluid

Manipulation of input currents has been shown to help in cases of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, traumatic and sports injuries, and synovitis.  If you are looking for a chiropractor near Holbrook, contact our clinic at Connetquot Chiropractic today.  You can ask about this modern technology and inquire about available practitioners.  Many insurance companies recognize and reimburse for the many benefits of this therapy.  Call us to set up your appointment with Connetquot Chiropractic today!
