Electro-Muscle Stimulation is a special form of electrical current. It is administered at the site of soft tissue injuries, such as muscle injuries, to block pain and normalize muscle tone.
Low level electrical current is induced into the tissues to reduce swelling. Electro-Muscle Stimulation helps to strengthen muscles and reduces painful symptoms.
At first, you will feel a slight tingling sensation. The intensity of the treatment may be raised during the 10 to 20 minute course of treatment. A mild contraction and relaxation of the muscle occur.
It is an effective form of pain relief, recommended in cases in which pain is accompanied by swelling and inflammation or when abnormal muscle tone exists.
Electro-Muscle Stimulation reduces the sensation of pain, decreases swelling, promotes normal muscle tone and helps to speed the healing process.
