What is E-Stim?
At TexStar Chiropractic (with locations in SW Austin, Bee Cave, Buda, and Dripping Springs), we use a variety of treatment modalities like spinal decompression therapy, cold laser therapy, cryotherapy, and nutritional counseling to help our patients achieve their health goals. E-stim, or electrostimulation, is one of our modalities that helps disrupt the pain pathways. Dr. Claudia Zavala shares why e-stim can be so helpful.
E-stim is an innovative form of therapy that utilizes electrical stimulation to help a variety of medical conditions. This type of therapy has been found to be effective for pain relief, muscle relaxation, and improving circulation. In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the potential benefits of e-stim and discuss how this form of therapy can help those suffering from a variety of medical conditions.
Benefits of E-stim
One of the most common uses of e-stim is for pain relief. This type of therapy utilizes electrical stimulation to help reduce inflammation and swelling, which can help to reduce pain. Additionally, it can help to stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. This can help to provide both short-term and long-term relief.
E-stim can also be used to help relax tense and stiff muscles. By utilizing electrical stimulation, this type of therapy can help to reduce tension in the muscles and improve range of motion. This can help to reduce stiffness and make everyday activities easier.
E-stim can also help to improve circulation. The stimulation helps to stimulate the release of nitric oxide, which is a naturally occurring gas in the body that helps to open up blood vessels. This can help to improve blood flow and overall circulation throughout the body. As a result, those undergoing this type of therapy may experience an improvement in energy levels and an overall sense of well-being.
E-stim can also help to reduce stress levels in those who are undergoing it. It helps to stimulate the release of serotonin and dopamine, which are hormones in the body that are associated with happiness and relaxation. This can help to reduce anxiety levels and provide a sense of calm.
Overall, e-stim can provide a number of benefits to those suffering from a variety of medical conditions. The pain relief, muscle relaxation, improved circulation, and stress relief can help to reduce discomfort and improve overall well-being.
