heat & ice therapy
Altering cold and heat therapy is a popular chiropractic treatment tool. Chiropractors used these therapies as a non-harmful, non-painful, and non-invasive way of treating injuries, especially pain. Heat and Cold therapies provide separate advantages to the body. Heat heals tight muscles by alleviating the tension in them. On the other hand, cold therapies reduce the speed of blood flow and alleviate the symptoms of inflammation and irritation. We have the second to none heat and cold therapies facilities at Metro Atlanta Injury & Wellness Center. Our Chiropractors understand which therapy is suitable for you, whether to use both and how often to alter them.
electrical muscle stimulation (ems)
Electrical Muscle Stimulation, which is also known as e-stim therapy, is a chiropractic technique in which the elicitation of muscle contraction is achieved through electric impulses. As the name implies, EMS involves the stimulation of muscles by electrical means. Also known as NMES (Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation), this technique mimics the function of the Central Nervous System for muscle contraction. In the general mechanism of muscle contraction, Your central nervous system generates an action potential that causes muscles to contract. While in EMS, this action potential is generated by placing electrodes on the skin near the muscle being stimulated.
How Does EMS work?
The working principle of EMS is based on the creation of steady electric impulses from a battery-operated device. These electric impulses stimulate muscle contraction for therapy purposes. EMS is most used to repair or strengthen tissues and overstretched or weakened muscles due to an injury or disease. Electrical Muscle Stimulation is commonly used by athletes for muscle conditioning or as a recovery tool.
Chiropractors rely on EMS if you have torn an Achilles tendon, sustained a shoulder injury, or experiencing a neuromuscular dysfunction. It's a completely safe therapy as the electrical impulses produced from the electrical device have a very low intensity which is barely noticeable to your body.
What are the Effects of EMS?
EMS causes repetitive muscle contraction and relaxation that produce the following effects in the body:
- Increased Blood Circulation (blood flow), particularly in the affected tissue area that is being treated.
- Strengthening of weakened muscles and restoration of their normal flexibility.
- Prevent muscle atrophy.
- Changing muscle contraction and relaxation patterns.
What are the Major Benefits of EMS Therapy?
EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) therapy is a popular chiropractic tool used to restore the normal functioning of muscles, muscle training, pain relief, rehabilitation, and recovery. It provides a wide range of therapeutic benefits, such as:
- Restoration of Normal Muscle contraction and relaxation patterns after illness or surgery – Disturbed muscle contraction and relaxation patterns is one of the complications of orthopedic surgery or illness. The patient, after surgery, feels it difficult to contract or relax muscles normally. In such cases, EMS therapy is a popular chiropractic tool. It helps to "re-educating muscles."
- Relieve Back Spasms – Certain types of illness or injuries can cause back spasms. For example, sciatica or soreness in the lower back area can lead to back spasms which not only trigger stinging pain but also restrict the overall range of body motion. EMS relieves back spasms by easing muscle tightness and soreness.
- Improves athletic performance – EMS aids athletic recovery and improves overall athletic performance by improving blood flow, removing lactic acid, and releasing endorphins in the body that promotes healing.
Therapeutic Ultrasound, which is also known as Ultrasound Therapy, is a chiropractic treatment in which ultrasound waves are used to promote healing, increase blood flow, and relax muscles in the affected area. A small, handheld ultrasound probe is placed on the problem area and combined with a gel or cream. The probe vibrates and generates ultrasound rays that enter the body through the skin. These rays trigger gentle vibrations in the underlying tissues and promote healing and blood flow in them. The whole Therapeutic Ultrasound process lasts up to a few minutes. You can simply understand that a probe is rubbed around the affected area after applying gel or cream.
Ultrasound Therapy is most used for the treatment of tissue injuries where scar tissues are needed to be broken down to promote healing. The intensity of ultrasound waves is enough to break down the scar tissues and increase the blood and nutrient flow in them to promote the recovery process. Research is underway to explore the potential of Ultrasound therapy as a non-invasive tool to repair damaged bones.

Manual therapy is a natural and hands-on approach to dealing with pain. Receiving Manual Therapy from a licensed chiropractor at Metro Atlanta Injury & Wellness Center, can induce deep relaxation into your muscles and release endorphins that act as natural painkillers. Unlike regular spa massages, chiropractic therapies shouldn’t produce muscle tension or muscle soreness as they are more focused on treating pain stemming from different physical injuries and produce soothing effects.

Intersegmental Traction is a popular chiropractic therapy utilized to treat tense or tight muscles. It’s also used to relieve back pain, spinal disc issues, and back spasms. It is a completely non-invasive therapy that has a variety of positive impacts on overall body health.
How Does Intersegmental Traction Work?
Intersegmental Traction therapy involves the use of a specially designed table on which the patient lies down. This table is equipped with rollers that rise up and down repeatedly to move, which allows the patient's spine to open the facet joints. The major purpose of using the Intersegmental traction table is to improve a patient's blood circulation throughout the spinal column, including spinal discs, ligaments, and muscles associated with it. The amount of pressure the intersegmental traction table puts on the patient's body is controlled by a top rated chiropractor.
What are the benefits of Intersegmental Traction Therapy?
The working principle of Intersegmental traction is based on increasing the circulation of necessary nutrients and blood in the injured spinal column area to promote the healing process. The rollers induce gentle muscle stretching, which relieves muscle spasms and improves the stability of the back.
