Electrotherapy in Corinth, TX

Dr. Taylor Scott provides electrical muscle stimulation (electrotherapy) to patients in Corinth and the surrounding areas.  Electric muscle stimulation is a physical rehabilitation therapy modality that is used 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.

How Electrotherapy Works

The electrodes are placed on the effected areas of the patient’s body, typically around the neck, back, shoulder, knee, ankle or wrist.  The therapist will then adjust the controls of the machine until the patient 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.

Benefits of Electrotherapy

  • Alleviate Pain
  • Increase Range of Motion
  • Decrease Atrophy
  • Muscle Relaxation & Increased Bloodflow
  • Re-education of Muscles
  • Acceleration of Healing
  • Reduction of Pain

Conditions Treated with Our Electrotherapy Device

We recommend electrotherapy to treat and relieve the pain, stiffness, and inflammation caused by the following:

  • Sciatica
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Muscle Atrophy
  • Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
  • Sports Injuries

By relaxing and contracting muscle repetitively, electric muscle stimulation improves muscle tone/strength, facilitates recovery from injuries and significantly improves your range of motion. Some people also prefer using electrotherapy instead of massage therapy to ease both physical and psychological stress. The ability of a muscle stimulator to enhance blood circulation and provoke the release of endorphins has a powerful calming effect on your mind and body.
