Electrical Stimulation: Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) uses low voltage stimulation to stimulate the motor nerves to contract the targeted muscles. This is done by placing an adhesive rubber pad on the muscle areas identified by the doctors to be troublesome. The targeted muscles tighten when stimulated allowing muscles that are typically stiff and tight to relax and provide pain relief.
Inter-Segmental Traction: The Spinalator is a form of inter-segmental traction table. The table has three rotating rollers on a triangle that rotates. As this triangle rotates, the roller lifts and separates the segments of the spine. During this motion, the rollers also elevate to increase the level of pressure to loosen tension in muscles to relax the patient before this adjustment. This allows the adjustment to hold for longer.
