Electrical Stimulation Methods
Electrical stimulation is a modality that utilizes electrical impulses to stimulate nerve receptors. We apply electrical energy to the nervous system via surface electrodes to reduce edema and inflammation while aiding in the healing of wounds/damaged tissue. You can also see improvement in the way motor nerves recruit muscle fibers to build strength and coordination. Using the proper current settings can also help with circulatory impairments and normalizing sensation in an area. For most patients, electrical stimulation reduces the perception of pain which helps them to progress through the rehabilitation process.
