Electrical stimulation is the use of electrical impulses to make the muscles contract or to provide pain relief. Electrodes (usually small pads with a gentle adhesive on one side) are attached to the surface of the skin and connected to a small device that generates impulses. Electrical stimulation might also be referred to as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), electromyostimulation, EMS, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), TNS, Interferential current therapy, ICT, or IFC.


IFC is a deep penetrating form of electrotherapy reaching providing a deeper tissue stimulation rather then just a numbing effect on the skin.


  • Reduce Pain Safely
  • Restore lost movement, improves restricts movements and coordination
  • Stimulates natural hormones to promote healing
  • Decrease inflammation


  • Acute or Chronic Muscle or Joint Injury
  • Edema (Swelling)
  • Post-Operative Rehab


TENS is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current for pain relief. It works by stimulating the nerves in the affected region to send pain blocking signals to the brain as well as producing the bodies natural painkilling endorphins blocking the perception of pain.


  • Pain relief


  • Acute Pain
  • Chronic Pain
  • Muscle, joint or bone injury/disease (arthritis)


Russian Stim is electrical stimulation employing a medium frequency alternating current delivered in a pulsed output. The pulsing is at a ‘low frequency’ creating a nerve response. It is primary used to generate a motor response of the muscle tissue. Originally developed for Russian athletes to increase muscle strength.


  • Increases strength in a deconditioned muscle


  • Useful in denervated and debilitated muscles
  • Sports Injury
  • Posture mechanics
  • Sports Performance


Equipped with unique MI (muscle intelligence) technology, Compex stimulators adapt to each of your muscles to provide the most effective electrostimulation possible, while offering greater comfort and better performance. Compex scans the muscle and automatically adjusts stimulator parameters to your physiology. It optimizes session effectiveness by combining voluntary contractions with electrostimulated contractions, giving you total control.


  • Biofeedback optimization
  • Greater Control
  • Ability to strengthen atrophied muscles
  • Greater comfort
  • Wireless
  • Can use while performing functional movements and exercises


  • Conditioning
  • Recovery/Massage
  • Pain Management
  • Rehabilitation
  • Fitness


Vacuum Electrotherapy is a form of manual treatment that provides us the ability to stretch out tight and restricted tissues while INCREASING blood flow to scarred, tight or painful area.  This is very important as many of our muscular injuries result in tight, guarded muscles.  The tighter a muscle is the more difficult it is for blood and oxygen to reach the damaged area.  Without this the healing process may be slowed or prevented.

Vacuum Therapy is a valuable tool when treating:

  • Tight or restricted muscles
  • Scar tissue
  • Blood flow
  • Capsular tightness (ex. shoulder adhesive capsulitis)
  • Joint tightness
  • more…

The guy is a wizard. I’ve been looking for a long time for someone that knows what they’re doing when it comes to backs. I will only see Spencer now going forward. If you decide to see someone else for back pain I’m not sure if you really want to get better. Whole clinic is great.

After many years of cervical spine discomfort and osteoarthritis most likely as a result of sitting at a desk for a good number of years, I found myself wanting to find an alternative means towards improving my spine health!My Naturopath Doctor recommended I see an Oesteopath namely Spencer Jean who came highly recommended.Spencer welcomed me into his office and the conversation began as to how to go about the process of correcting my posture! A plan of attack was formulated as to how to begin the process which was amazingly positive based on his confidence in doing so along with my part in wanting to do so!Today my posture has improved tremendously and I cannot thank Spencer enough for getting me to this point! The exercises are not difficult and As I see the progress, I am so much more encouraged in doing so! Thank you so much Spencer and the wonderful welcoming staff at Community Chiropractic Centre! I am truly blessed!
Spencer has been a great benefit to me, as he listens to what is wrong and works to help with that problem; so that I get some relief & can do more of my ADL. Before meeting Spencer & being under his care; I had very limited relief of discomfort. I would recommend anyone with chronic pain & skeletal ailments to give Spencer a try. He maybe just what you need in your life.
