ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION
WHAT IS ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION?
Electrical stimulation is a form of physical therapy used to help people who have experienced an injury. It's also used for people experiencing pain, spasms, or muscle weakness. There are various forms of electrical stimulation your physical therapist may choose to use.
In the procedure, our physical therapist places electrodes on the part of your body that requires treatment. You will experience a tingling sensation during the therapy. The treatment is not supposed to be painful. If you experience pain during the session, tell your physical therapist right away so they can adjust or stop the treatment.
