Electrotherapy Offers Natural Pain Relief in Clifton Park NY

Do you find it difficult to manage your pain? Although over-the-counter prescription medications cure symptoms, they frequently produce nausea, dizziness, and other side effects that make working, exercising, and caring for your family difficult. Electrotherapy in Clifton Park NY could help you manage your pain more effectively.

How Does Electrotherapy Work?

By blocking pain signals with low-voltage electrical impulses, electrotherapy prevents them from reaching the brain. You don't feel pain if your brain doesn't receive the signals. Endorphins, your body's natural painkillers, are also released throughout the procedure.
Electrotherapy can loosen tight muscles, enhance healing, boost muscle tone, reduce edema, improve range of motion, and strengthen muscles, in addition to giving pain relief. Although the therapy can be therapeutic regardless of how long you've been in pain, it's especially helpful when utilized soon after an accident.

Electrical impulses are given to your skin via adhesive electrodes or a belt worn around your body during treatments. Electrodes can be used directly on the painful location or on a nerve that supplies the area.

The treatment using electrotherapy is usually painless. When the electrical current is activated, many people report a tingling or prickling sensation. The therapy can help you feel better for up to 24 hours after you've had it.

If you're pregnant, have a cardiac disease, epilepsy, a pacemaker, defibrillator, infusion pump, or metal implant, the therapy might not be right for you.

What Types of Electrotherapy Treatments Are Available?

In addition to spinal manipulation, massage, soft tissue mobilization, and ultrasound therapy, electrotherapy may be used as part of your chiropractic treatment plan. One or more of the following methods of electrotherapy may be recommended by your chiropractor:

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) - is a technique for stimulating the nerves through the (TENS). TENS treatment reduces chronic or acute pain by using both high and low-frequency electrical pulses. The intensity of the pulses is controlled by a dial. TENS devices for home use are compact and can be worn while going about your regular routine.

Inferential Current (IFC) - If TENS therapy fails to relieve your discomfort, IFC treatment may be the next option. Currents are generated by the IFC device, which permeate the muscles and deeper layers of the skin.

Galvanic Stimulation (GS) - Short bursts of pulsed electrical currents are generated by the galvanic stimulator. The gadget can be used to minimize swelling or enhance blood flow depending on the settings. Increasing blood flow to an injured area is a simple technique to expedite healing, reduce swelling, and enhance range of motion in a painful or wounded location.
