Is Your Chiropractic Office Ready to Expand with Electrotherapy?
The understanding and focus on the spine makes chiropractors unique in their approach to health and wellness. However, as doctors diversify and patients look for a wider range of alternative treatments, you may need to expand your offering to stay competitive.
The good news is that there are plenty of options for a chiropractor to adopt that maintain your traditional focus on holistic health and wellness without the use of medications. We’ve seen significant success for chiropractic offices that employ electrotherapy treatment and bioelectronic solutions, such as our WellnessPro Plus.
Let’s take just a moment to review how these technologies work, so you can see how it’s a natural fit when you are ready to add a new pain-relief regimen that can keep your patients away from muscle relaxers, opioids, and other medical practices that may have lasting side effects.
Understanding Electrotherapy and Your Practice
The body’s nerves act as electrical conduits and electricity has long been treated as a potential source of relief if we could tap into its power safely. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) therapy does just that by using electrical signals to interrupt the pain signals that nerves send out.
The interruption prevents the brain from receiving the pain and frees up our bodies to focus on healing.
The theory behind combining this electrotherapy methodology as part of a larger chiropractic care practice is straightforward. Stimulation delivered to affected nerves and muscles encourages the body to relax and can promote the release of pain-stopping chemicals, such as endorphins, and can help reduce inflammation.
Benefits from the best TENS units not only can give your patients relief but they can also make it easier to apply chiropractic treatments to the body.
Pain Relief Through Electrotherapy in the Chiropractic Office
In many instances, electrotherapy entered a chiropractic practice with a small TENS unit designed to help relieve muscle pains and headaches, and we’ve heard that it was as often used by the provider as it was the patients.
Today, electrotherapy is bringing a wider range of pain relief to people suffering from all kinds of ailments, some of which are directly related to your efforts — like back pain and pain from muscle spasms — to areas that may feel less related such as inflammation or rheumatoid arthritis.
By beginning with low frequency, gentle electrical stimulation, your patients will remain comfortable and get used to both the sensation and the relief. Placing them in this therapeutic state can block out pain signals their bodies are generating as well as relax tense muscles and reduce overall swelling.
After a few visits, most of your patients will report significant reductions in pain and swelling, or they may be pain-free and wish to come back on an as-needed basis. You can pair their relief with in-house massage therapy or other services to help keep the pain-free momentum going.
Why Add a WellnessPro Plus to Your Practice?
There are two main reasons we suggest TENS units and electrotherapy treatment devices like our WellnessPro Plus to practitioners like you:
- It’s proven relief that can help reduce muscle stress and pain, which supports the delivery of other chiropractic relief and may help improve overall success rates for patient relief.
- Our unit creates a sustainable source of income because you’re able to treat multiple patients each day with a single machine, and the treatment typically requires multiple sessions for maximum effectiveness.
We believe electrotherapy treatment is a natural partner for chiropractic offices because your patients are already looking for medication-free relief and trust you to deliver a wider range of rehabilitation therapies. You have the benefit of reaching multiple different types of patients — from athletes and trainers to those seeking holistic healing and alternatives to opioids — and can deliver the unique benefit of bioelectronics and electrotherapy in a safe and comfortable setting.
At ElectroMedical, we believe that the WellnessPro Plus and other devices like it are the key answer to safe, reliable treatments that don’t come with severe side-effects. If your patients are asking for new forms of relief, or you want to provide a pain therapy tool in-between normal chiropractic visits, we invite you to learn more about our offering.
