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.

Our therapists will utilize Ultrasound or Electrical Muscle Stimulation during Targeted Sports Therapy or Injury Rehab appointments if it will benefit your recovery.
