Interferential Electrical Muscle Stimulation In Cartersville, GA
Interferential electrical muscle stimulation is a form of chiropractic therapy that involves electrodes placed on the exterior edges of where a patient is experiencing pain.

Not all chiropractors offer interferential therapy, which is known to help improve patients’ conditions that cause excruciating pain.
The Process Used by Our Chiropractor
This type of treatment applies a high current to the painful area. The therapy consists of two electrodes or channels, which go off and on four thousand times per second. The intention is to stop the pain over a short period. The treatment often provides relief to patients with chronic pain who have not been able to find relief in any other way. Before beginning treatment, our chiropractor will evaluate your musculoskeletal system to determine if interferential electrical muscle stimulation is right for you.
Stimulating the Muscles
The idea is to use interferential therapy to stimulate injured muscles and tissue to promote healing. When interferential therapy is applied, blood rushes to the area, bringing nutrients and blood cells to expedite healing. Dr. Eric Fromm and Dr. Scott Habers recommend interferential electrical muscle stimulation to treat the following conditions:
- Muscle spasms
- Muscle spasticity
- Circulation problems
- Painful injuries
