Additional Therapies Offered IN Apex NC

Chiropractic Apex NC EMS

Here are some additional therapies we offered at Creech Chiropractic in Apex NC. We are very excited to offer these treatments to our patients. They include:

  • Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
  • Hydrotherapy Bed sessions
  • Intersegmental Traction Table sessions


Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is a treatment method being used to reduce pain, swelling, and recovery time. This increasingly popular treatment works well for soft tissue injuries, muscle spasms, and even for athletes who want quicker recovery from workouts.

How Does Electrical Muscle Stimulation Work?

This treatment is performed here in our office, and usually only takes a few minutes. Electrodes are placed on the skin over the affected area, and the machine is turned on. An electrical current is then transmitted into the soft tissue or muscle. The level of current used depends on the injury, its location, and how deep the therapy will be. This electrical current causes the muscles to experience very small but quick contractions. During the treatment, patients may feel a prickly or tingling sensation; however, these sensations will subside after the machine is turned off, or shortly afterward. Many patients enjoy the sensation.

Electrical muscle stimulation creates tiny contractions in the muscles so they become tired and relax, relieving pain and muscle spasms. In addition, it triggers the release of endorphins, which are our body’s natural pain reliever. The process is also said to clear metabolic waste so nutrients can be better delivered and soft tissue can heal more quickly.

Back muscles and neck muscles are common locations for EMS; however, there are many areas of the body that can experience the benefits of this treatment.

Electrical muscle stimulation works well for both acute and chronic pain. If you have been struggling with pain or have recently suffered an injury, ask your chiropractor if electrical muscle stimulation is right for you.


Hydrotherapy: Similar to a powerful shower massage without getting wet, Hydrotherapy water massage uses waves of heated water to provide an innovative experience that's a great complement to chiropractic care. Hydrotherapy water massage benefits in chiropractic clinics include:

  • Provides temporary relief of minor aches and pains
  • Reduces levels of stress and anxiety
  • Deep relaxation provides a feeling of well-being
  • Increases circulation in local areas where massaged
  • Relieves muscle soreness, stiffness, and tension
  • A session on a Hydrotherapy bed is normally 10 minutes.


An Intersegmental traction table, or a roller table, is used in chiropractic care to mobilize the spine and restore proper ranges of motion softly putting the spinal column in motion while simultaneously stretching the other components that affect the spine's health, namely the muscles and ligaments  The Intersegmental traction table completes multiple different tasks all at once by gently tractioning open adjacent segments of the spinal column healing nutrients and water can enter the discs and joints.
