What is it?
Muscle stimulation is a procedure in which electrical impulses are sent through the skin, to stimulate movement in the muscles. This stimulation can help repair tissues and strengthen muscles. Using special devices, muscle stimulation can be safely done to treat pain, improve blood flow and stimulate the nerves and muscles beneath.
How is works?
Muscle stimulation uses electrical impulses to cause muscles and tissues to contract. These contractions, paired with signals to the nerves, can help reduce pain and stimulate repeated muscle movement needed to strengthen them. It is imperative to consult the doctor before decided on a particular treatment. The doctor is better equipped to diagnose your condition and suggest the best suited treatments.
What is it used for?
Muscle stimulation can be used to treat and repair issues within the tissues or muscles, improve blood flow to the intended regions as well as reduce any long-term pain symptoms. Muscle stimulation can also be used in physical therapy to help strengthen muscles from within.
