INTERFERENTIAL ELECTRIC STIMULATION AND HEAT THERAPY
On top of using our Intersegmental Traction table, we use Interferential Electric Stimulation and Heat Therapy similar to the image below.
-Electrodes are placed on the skin that send light electrical pulses to specific areas of the body with the purpose of reducing inflammation, curtailing muscle spasms and relieving back, shoulder, and neck pain.
-Heat brings about a number of effects that can collectively help the muscles. For starters, heat causes vasodilation. This is the dilation or widening of blood vessels, which increases the blood flow to that part of the body. Increased blood flow has a number of benefits. For a muscle injury, increased blood flow helps in removing debris and preventing the build-up of harmful substances, such as lactic acid, etc. It also speeds the healing by bringing more nutrients and oxygen to the damaged part of the muscle.
