With little to no recovery time needed, many patients turn to Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy to find pain relief, improve mobility, and benefit overall health. If you are suffering from muscle pain from a physical injury or medical condition, you may benefit from Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy to treat your symptoms and restore your mobility.
Benefits Of Electrical Muscle Stimulation
EMS improves many injuries by providing the following benefits:
- Increases muscle growth, strength, and performance
- Reduces muscle soreness and relaxes muscles
- Reduces pain, swelling, and inflammation
- Stops muscle degeneration
- Increases local blood circulation
How Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy Works
During EMS, electrodes are connected to a device responsible for producing the gentle electric currents you’ll feel throughout the treatment. These electric currents are intended to stimulate the motor nerves within your muscles, stimulating these nerves to cause your muscle to contract.
As the muscles contract, your body will release endorphins to reduce pain and increase relaxation. This treatment promotes healing by improving circulation, as electric stimulation enhances blood flow to the affected area. This is beneficial in reversing inflammation or swelling caused by an injury or a medical condition, such as osteoarthritis.
If you are interested in EMS, we can help determine if you are a good candidate for this therapy with a consultation at our Fort Myers clinic.

Ever since I have had Sciatica, Straight to Health has been able to make me pain free for months at a time. Whenever it comes back, and it does, I'll call for an appointment and get a few more treatments and I am good to go. Dr. Zapille and her staff are just wonderful, they make you feel better just because of their warm welcome and attitude.
Anyone who has been in the pain from Sciatica knows how left alone and helpless it makes you feel. Knowing that Dr. Zapille is there whenever I need her is just awesome. She even has come into the office when they were closed, just to help me with my pain so I did not have to wait another day.
Dr. Zappile was immediately able to adjust my sore neck after nearly six months without proper treatment here in SW Florida. She also worked on a chronic condition, sciatica, and I'm functioning much better after treatments.
They are the best in SW Florida!
Great reviews prompted me to go to this chiropractor’s office. Drove by on a Saturday to check out the location. Met by doctors in the parking lot. Both very pleasant and Dr Zappile’s smile is eye catching. I went in to see her for my first appointment. I suffered a minor injury after falling out of a chair that rolled from underneath me. My hamstrings and my lower back was causing a problem that had not resolved. My first treatment I must say that I’m impressed. No longer feeling back of my legs tight and pulling on my back first thing in the morning. Her treatment recommendations are working as early as my first visit. I look forward to continuing my treatment regimen. I would highly recommend this office for your chiropractor needs. Thank you so much be I’m happy we met.
