Electrical Stimulation

Electrical Stimulation, aka IFC or “stim,” is like a machine giving you a massage. The four sticky pads are placed around the affected site, and a small current (in milliamps) runs through the wires.

The patient will feel a slight tingling and eventually a light muscle contraction.

Why Electrical Stimulation May Be Part Of Your Treatment Plan

The purpose of the muscle contraction caused by electrical stimulation is to fatigue the muscle until the spasms, guarded tissue, and pain begin to relax. Additionally, the increased muscle contractions allow blood flow to rinse the inflammation at the injury site.

The doctors at Idaho Chiropractic Group commonly incorporate ice or heat into this procedure to assist in the anti-inflammatory or relaxation goals.


We often hear snoring or deep breathing because of the amazing relief.
