E-Stim includes a range of treatments using electricity to
- reduce pain,
- improve circulation,
- repair tissues,
- strengthen muscles,
- and promote bone growth, leading to improvements in physical functioning.
E-stim uses electrical pulses to mimic the action of signals coming from neurons (cells in your nervous system). These mild electrical currents target either muscles or nerves.
E-stim therapy for muscle recovery sends signals to targeted muscles to make them contract. (Flexing your biceps is a form of muscle contraction.) By causing repeated muscle contractions, blood flow improves, helping repair injured muscles.
