What is E-Stim Physical Therapy?

E-Stim or electrical stimulation therapy is the stimulation or forced contraction of nerves and muscles through electrical pulses. This electrical muscle stimulation or EMS provides you with safe treatment through the use of a specialized device.

TENS, IFC, NMES & Galvanic Stimulation

One common form of EMS delivery is transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). This method is often used for chronic pain and stimulates the nerve endings under your skin. Interferential current, or IFC, is a form of TENS used more commonly by a chiropractor or physical therapist in the office.

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is used after injury or surgery to help muscles relearn how to contract properly. Finally, galvanic stimulation (GS) uses a pulsed electric current to treat acute injuries or tissue trauma by increasing blood flow and encouraging healing.

What does E-Stim Treat?

E-Stim is popular as an effective, non-invasive procedure. It can help you rebuild after injuries such as torn or strained muscles. Electrical muscle stimulation can relieve spasms, especially in the back, and has been used for both spinal cord injuries and to decrease inflammation and swelling.
