Muscle stimulation therapy, or e-Stim, is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation to treat pain and muscle spasms. At Lake & Leaf Chiropractic we use this therapy to help build strength and prevent atrophy in patients with muscle injuries.
We offer an alternative medicine therapy called myofascial release that is used for treating skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on treatment that utilizes gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles.
At Lake & Leaf Chiropractic we offer this skilled intervention that includes the use of specialized tools to manipulate the skin, underlying soft tissue (fascia), muscles and tendons by various direct, compressive stroking movements.
The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
