Electro-Muscle Stimulation

What is Electro-Muscle Stimulation?

It is a special form of electrical current that is administered at the site of soft tissue injury, especially muscles, for the blocking of pain.  Small amounts of electrical current are induced into the tissues for the purpose of reducing swelling.  The widely used technique safely strengthens muscles and helps reduce painful symptoms.  Patients generally feel a slight tingling sensation at first.  Since your body may become accustomed to the initial setting, the intensity may be raised during the course of your 10-20 minute treatment, for maximum healing effect.  Many painful symptoms can be relieved with the application of Electro-Muscle Stimulation.
