Electric Stimulation units usually consist of a main unit connected by wires to adhesive electrode pads which are placed on the skin (some areas such as the heart, are avoided). People with pacemakers and pregnant women are generally advised to avoid any type of electrotherapy. Electric Stimulation is a type of physical therapy treatment that utilizes various frequencies and wave forms of electrical current, which have therapeutic effects on the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. The unit sends a mild electric current to the skin via the electrode pad.
Electric Stimulation is a great tool for people who are working out so they can achieve muscle strengthening and repair. It’s also beneficial for people who are in pain and have limited mobility. The increase in blood flow and the reduction in pain helps to promote mobility and a greater range of movement. Electric Stimulation can loosen up tender joints and tendons to relieve the pain of degenerative conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia and other chronic physical ailments. It can also improve circulation, strengthen muscles, repair tissues and boost bone growth, improving the body’s physical functioning. The benefits for people suffering with muscle spasms are well worth the effort.
Electrical stimulation helps to release endorphins, your body’s natural painkillers. Today, many people are looking for a natural, safe alternative to the potential risks and side effects of opioid (narcotic) pain medications. Electric Stimulation is gaining popularity due to it’s pain relief options, ease of use and overall safety.
