Electro Therapy Modalities

Electro-Muscle Stimulation

A special form of electrical current that is administered at the site of soft tissue injury, especially muscles, for the blocking of pain.

How does Electro-Muscle Stimulation work?

Small amounts of electrical current are induced into the tissues for the purpose of reducing 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 1-20 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 and inflammation.

Patient Benefits

• Reduces pain sensation
• Helps decrease swelling
• Promotes general muscle tone
• Speeds the healing process
• Many painful symptoms can be relieved


Interferential Electro-Therapy

A therapeutic treatment that aids in the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing.

How Does Interferential Electro-Therapy work?

Tiny amounts of electrical impulses are induced into the tissues in the vicinity of the injury. Where these waves intersect below the surface of the skin, a low-frequency stimulation is created. This prompts the body to secrete endorphins and other natural pain killers to help relieve pain.

What does Interferential Electro-Therapy feel like?

Most patients find Interferential Electro-Therapy to be extremely beneficial and describe the treatment as a faint "pins and needles" sensation.

Why is Interferential Electro-Therapy used?

Interferential Electro-Therapy is most often used for pain relief and to aid in reduction the swelling of soft tissues. Ligament sprains, muscle strains and spasms often respond to this treatment, helping to reduce atrophy and increase blood circulation.

Patient Benefits

• Reduces painful symptoms
• Decreases local swelling
• Promotes muscle tone
• Restores normal movements
• Accelerates the healing process


Microcurrent Therapy

Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and heal soft tissues of the body.

How does Microcurrent Therapy work?

Injury to the body disrupts its normal electrical activity. Microcurrent Therapy produces electrical signals like those naturally occurring when the body is repairing damaged tissues. By applying similar electrical currents, the healing process is enhanced.

What does Microcurrent Therapy feel like?

The electrical current used in Microcurrent Therapy is so small that is it’s rarely felt. However, the water moistened electrodes or gel used to conduct the current may seem cool when first applied.

Why is Microcurrent Therapy used?

Microcurrent Therapy is often recommended in cases involving soft tissue inflammation or muscle spasm. Since Microcurrent Therapy mimics the body's electrical fields it is helpful in relieving pain and stimulating the haling of soft tissues.

Patient Benefits

• Can help speed the healing process
• Reduces swelling and inflammation
• Masks acute and chronic pain
• Releases muscle trigger points
• Improves soft tissue regeneration
• Approximates the natural electrical currents of the body to enhance the healing process
