TENS / Neuromuscular Stimulation
Electrical stimulation of nerves and muscle has been use in the medical field since the ancient days of medicine. During the Egyptian times, electric eels were use for curative purposes. In present times, we have a vast array of neuro-muscular stimulation devices capable of treating numerous musculoskeletal conditions. TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) uses a small amount of current to stimulate superficial nerves, in turn decreasing the pain sensations. Other forms of stimulation such as Interferential Muscle Stimulation, decrease muscle spasm and accelerate tissue healing.
According to your specific condition, your doctor will recommend the most effective therapy.
