Pain Relief through Electrical Stimulation Therapy

Electrical stimulation therapy is used to relieve headaches, shoulder pain, neck pain, back pain as well as pain in the extremities. The therapy works by stimulating the muscles with a mild electrical current. Electrodes are first placed at the appropriate points on the patient’s skin. We begin the therapy with a low setting and increase the frequency until the patient has reached their comfort level with the electrodes. Then the patient is allowed to be in this relaxing therapeutic state for 10 minutes or longer, depending on what our chiropractor prescribes. Ice packs are also placed over the electrodes to further ease the pain and reduce the swelling.

This therapy works by causing a relaxation of tense muscles and an alleviation of the swelling that is frequently involved. Most of the time, we do not think of pain in terms of inflammation, but for the most part, that is precisely what causes pain. After a few visits, the inflammation in your muscles and nerves will be gone altogether or significantly reduced. Dr’s Kosin may also prescribe massage therapy and a nutrition plan to speed up and aid rehabilitation for patients.

Electrical stimulation treatment is one of the many state of the art therapeutic techniques we have available at our Freehold NJ and North Brunswick NJ Center. If you would like to know more about this therapy or the other services we provide, we invite you to call us at 732-407-7744 or 908-753-5454.

Wellness Care

Many think that health is merely the absence of pain or symptoms. A wellness approach to health means adopting a variety of healthy habits for optimum function on all levels – physical, mental, social, and spiritual.

Because of its focus on the nerve system, chiropractic care can be an important part of a wellness lifestyle. The nerve system controls the function of virtually every aspect of our lives. So, maintaining a properly functioning nerve system is essential if you want to be your very best.

Few things as complicated as your body can be ‘fixed’ and then ignored. That’s why we will recommend a schedule of regular chiropractic checkups. Like maintaining your teeth, your car, your family, or your faith, maintaining the integrity of your nerve system requires an ongoing investment.

Those who want the very best, add regular chiropractic care to their other health practices. The pleasant result is often more vitality, endurance, and the capacity to enjoy life to its fullest. Good nutrition, exercise, chiropractic care, and other preventive measures are part of a wellness lifestyle.

Today, more and more of us are interested in a higher level of health called wellness. Beyond merely feeling better or preventing health problems, we want to fully enjoy life by being at our very best mentally, physically, and socially. True health is only possible with an optimally functioning nerve system.

Our office is conveniently located at 1594 Route 130, North Brunswick, NJ.
