Electrical Muscle Stimulation (Electrotherapy)

Electrotherapy in SewellElectrotherapy Sewell, NJ: Dr. Joseph Broderick provides electrical muscle stimulation to patients in Gloucester County 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.

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.

I had severe mid-back pain and Dr. Broderick was thorough in finding out what was causing my pain. My back has never felt better and I know I have a chiropractor who really cares. When you enter the office, you are treated like family. Great practice!
