What Is Electrical Stimulation?
Electrical Stimulation is used in a variety of conditions to reduce pain and swelling, promote tissue healing, stimulate nerve or muscle function, biofeedback therapy and muscular re-education.
How Electrical Stimulation Can Help?
Electrical Stimulation / TENS are commonly used to treat those with chronic pain, muscle spasms, inflammation and swelling. E-stim is best used in conjunction with other physical therapy treatment strategies. For patients with weakness, after suffering a stroke or surgery, Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) can help prevent muscle wasting and build strength by stimulating the desired muscle or groups of muscles to cause a contraction. It is also beneficial in increasing range of motion and improving circulation.
