Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy
Spinal Care of St. Louis provides electrical muscle stimulation to patients in Fenton, Missouri and surrounding areas of St. Louis County. 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. 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 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 stimulation without burning, stinging or feeling a stabbing sensation. The stimulation will increase circulation and reduce swelling, thereby reducing pain sensations.

Our Patients Love Us!
Wow! Dr. Nathan Heimgartner was wonderful, and so was his staff. I called in with several issues, and received an immediate appointment. They just moved to their brand new office on Horan and it’s very nice. I got a thorough consultation, therapy, and adjustments and felt the relief immediately. I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to make the call, as I’ve been having increasing pain for several months. If I am feeling this much better after one visit, I really look forward to more treatments.
