Electrical Stimulation or Electrotherapy is a technique used to repair injured muscles and reduce pain. It works by sending mild electrical pulses to the muscles and nerves through the skin. These electrical pulses mimic the action of signals coming from cells in your nervous system. They then target dysfunctions located in your muscles or nerves.
For muscle recovery, electrical pulses are sent to targeted muscles to make them contract. By continuously contracting and relaxing these muscles, blood flow increases, helping repair the damaged muscles. The repeated contraction and relaxation cycles can also improve muscle strength.
This therapy has shown to be an effective therapeutic option for individuals suffering from pain and weakness. Below are some of the benefits clients may experience:
