Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body to release natural relievers of pain often referred to as endorphins.
This is a great therapy if there is a spasm in a back or neck muscle. It works well in relaxing the muscle and allowing it to return to its normal state rather quickly. Short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing from acute and chronic pain.

Low volt therapy is commonly used more for the relief of muscular tightness, spasms, or trigger points. Typically, the active settings for low-volt electrotherapy cause the affected muscles to contract involuntarily, causing an ultimate relaxation and release of the tension of the affected muscles.
Low volt therapy can also be paired with ultrasound therapy and administered simultaneously through the same instrument, directly to the patient. This combination is often useful in treating injured tissues and trigger points.
