Electrical Stimulation (E-stim) in Springfield VA

One of the benefits of electric muscle stimulation is speeding up the body's natural recovery process. Other E-stim benefits are relieving pain in the body, reducing swelling, and promoting general muscle tone. Electrical stimulation works by providing electrical impulses to the skin and delivering impulses that make the muscles contract.

Electric stimulation works by mimicking the natural way by which the body exercises its muscles. The electrodes attached to the skin deliver impulses that make the muscles contract. It is beneficial in increasing the patient's range of motion and improves the circulation of the body.

  • Electrical stimulation has several benefits, including:
  • Healing injuries
  • Promoting relaxation and relieving stress
  • Decreasing inflammation
  • Decreasing swelling
  • Managing the development of scar tissue
  • Relaxing spasming muscles
  • Increasing range of motion
  • Improving circulation
  • Relieving persistent pain from issues like fibromyalgia and sciatica
  • Increasing muscle mass after an injury

Graston Technique (Soft-Tissue Therapy)

The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy known as soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization. It is one of a number of manual therapy approaches that uses instruments with a specialized form of massage/scraping the skin gently.

Most people skip stretching during workouts. They end up hurting themselves because of this. That is why chiropractors want to teach patients about stretching. Doing so will allow patients to get the most out of exercises.

Joint Mobility Exercises

Joints can help perform different types of movement. Pain is not a normal part of this. Performing joint mobility exercises can improve the patient’s range of motion. It can reduce the patient’s risk for possible injuries as well. The chiropractor can add these techniques to chiropractic rehabilitation.

Advanced stretching is like performing yoga poses. The chiropractor will tell the patient which poses can help the patient most. Using therapeutic tools for joint mobility is easy to do. Placing a massage ball or foam roller on the floor is a start. The patient can then position on it to place the tool between spinal joints. Performing these exercises is possible with either irritated or healthy joints.

Strengthening Exercises

Strong muscles provide good structural support. Building up muscles is a good way to relieve the stress from different weight-bearing joints. Bulking up specific muscle groups can ease the pressure and pain in these areas. Strengthening exercises can help chiropractic rehabilitation.

Spinal Decompression Technique

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of traction that helps relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.

Doctors have used nonsurgical spinal decompression to treat:

  • Back or neck pain or sciatica, which is pain, weakness, or tingling that extends down the leg
  • Bulging or herniated disks or degenerative disk disease
  • Worn spinal joints (called posterior facet syndrome)
  • Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots


RockTape is the world's best kinesiology tape. It can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner's knee and back pain. RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect.

Chiropractic rehabilitation will need patience and consistency

Patients can have a better range of motion and quality of life if there is no pain. You can see your chiropractor to receive alternative treatment for pain. Chiropractic rehabilitation is a combination of treatments focusing on relieving and preventing pain. It could even protect you from future injuries. Seeing your chiropractor at regular schedules can also help strengthen your body.
