Ultrasound Therapy and Electric Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy

Active Balance Spine and Sports Care provides electrical muscle stimulation to practice members in Arundel, York County, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Lyman, Biddeford, Alfred Maine and the surrounding areas.  Electric muscle stimulation is a physical rehabilitation therapy modality that is used in the acute phase of an injury to stimulate muscle contractions using electrodes hooked up to an electric stimulation machine at our facility.  These contractions help to control pain, manage inflammation and strengthen the muscle.

The electrodes are placed on the effected areas of the practice member’s body around the neck, back, shoulder, knee, ankle or wrist.  The therapist will then adjust the controls of the machine until the practice member feels a prickly sensation and is able to comfortably target the level of stim without burning, stinging or feeling a stabbing sensation.  The stimulation will increase circulation and reduce swelling thereby reducing pain sensations.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy helps to reduce muscle pain and movement dysfunction in the acute phases of an injury.  Sound waves deliver deep heat to the areas of the body that need treatment.  As a result of the sound waves, the patient benefits from reduced stiffness, swelling and pain. Increased circulation and the promotion of pain free movement are positive effects of using ultrasound therapy.

Following ultrasound, Dr. Robin Linster may provide gentle chiropractic adjustments, stretching routines and rehabilitative exercises.

Thermoprobe

A cutting edge tool that Dr. Linster also uses is a thermoprobe.  This device can deliver electrical stimulation, and deep pressure to release adhesions while simultaneously delivering either heat or icing as indicated.  This is especially useful in the treatment of tendonitis injuries in larger muscle groups like achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis.
