Electric stimulation therapy involves low levels of electrical impulses delivered to injured tissues to reduce pain and promote faster healing. Patients feel a “tingling” sensation, or “electrical massage.” These impulses stimulate the body to release natural pain relievers called, endorphins. These endorphins reduce pain and inflammation, thereby promoting faster healing of the injured tissues. This therapy is often used to treat acute or chronic pain, hypertonic muscles, as well as strains/sprains of the muscles, joints, and soft tissues of the spine and extremities.
