Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy
Community Chiropractic Center provides electrical muscle stimulation to patients in Walworth and surrounding areas of Geneva Lake West communities. 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 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.
Ultrasound therapy helps to reduce muscle pain and movement dysfunction. Sound waves deliver deep heat to the areas of the body that need treatment. As a result of the sound waves, the patient benefits from reduced stiffness, swelling and pain. Increased circulation and the promotion of pain free movement are positive effects of using ultrasound therapy.
Following ultrasound, the doctor may provide gentle chiropractic adjustments, stretching routines and rehabilitative exercises. Call and set up your appointment to determine if either of these therapies are right for you.

Our Patients Love Us!
I give Community Chiropractic Center 5 stars. Dr. Elliott has been my chiropractor for several years now and has always provided the absolute best care for me. She is kind and knowledgeable and answers my questions in a way that I can understand. The receptionist is so friendly and accommodating when making appointments. She always does her best to get me in even when I call the same day for an appointment. And I’m always greeted with a smile and a hello. The texts I get on my cell phone reminding me I have an appointment are very helpful.
