Electrical Muscle Stimulation is a special form of electrical current that is administered at the site of soft tissue injury, especially muscles, for the relief of pain. Small amounts of electrical current are induced into the tissues for the purpose of reducing swelling. This widely used technique safely strengthens muscles and reduces painful symptoms.
Patients generally feel a slight tingling sensation at first. Since their body may become accustomed to the initial setting, the intensity may be raised during the course of your treatment for maximum healing effect. Electrical Muscle Stimulation has been proven to be an effective form of pain relief. It is recommended in cases in which pain is accompanied by swelling and inflammation.
