Elecrtrical Stiminualtion Clinton & Milford, NY

Electrical Stiminualtion

Electrical Stimulation can be utilized for pain management, aiding edema/swelling reduction, or improving muscle control and strength.

Types of Electrical Stimulation

The most common form of electrical stimulation is TENS (these are often the hand-held units you see advertised on TV or in the malls). Different types of electrical stimulation (E-stim) work on our bodies differently; however, generally it works via stimulating either the blood vessels around the affected area to help to bring blood flow and stimulate the healing process, or by over-stimulating the nerve endings to cause a temporary deadening of the pain.

How Does Physical Therapy Help?

Physical therapists use very specific types of electrical stimulation to potentially speed up the healing process.
