WHAT IS ELECTRO-MUSCLE STIMULATION?
Electro-Muscle Stimulation (E-STIM) in East Providence RI, Pawtucket RI, Providence RI, or Central Falls RI is a special form of electrical current that is administered at the site of a soft tissue injury, especially muscles, for the blocking of pain.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Small amounts of electrical current are induced into affected soft tissues to decrease spasticity and reduce swelling. This widely used technique safely strengthens muscles and helps reduce painful symptoms.
WHAT DOES ELECTRO-MUSCLE STIMULATION FEEL LIKE?
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.
WHY IS ELECTRO-MUSCLE STIMULATION USED?
Electro-Muscle Stimulation has been used as an effective form of pain relief. It is recommended in cases in which pain is accompanied by swelling, inflammation, and muscle spasticity.
