Electric muscle stimulation

What is electric muscle stimulation?

Electric muscle stimulation has been a widely accepted medical practice for many years. The low frequency electrical current is passed through the muscle, nerve and connective tissue for the purpose of reducing pain. It feels like a tingling sensation and is painless. In fact most find it a pleasurable experience.

How does it work?

Electro-therapy is introduced into the body through the use of electrodes. Once the electrodes have been placed on the skin, the electrical output intensity is slowly increased. Initially a tingling sensation is felt. The intensity is slowly increased until the current feels strong but comfortable. Treatment may last 10 – 20 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Most patients find Interferential Electrical Muscle Stimulation to be extremely beneficial.
