Advanced Electrotherapy treatment. Effectively promotes healing, relieves pain, reduces swelling, and facilitates muscle recovery.
Electrotherapy Melbourne — How Electrotherapy Works?
Electrotherapy or electrical stimulation therapy is a safe and effective method of treatment that can provide pain relief and recovery for several conditions. It involves the use of electrical currents to stimulate healing and reduce pain.
Here at Absolute Chiropractic, we offer two different types of Electrotherapy:
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
TENS works by effectively slowing down or distracting the pain messages, that occur in chronic conditions, from the nerve receptor to the brain. This form of treatment can be extremely useful for patients suffering from debilitating chronic pain.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS works by sending electrical impulses to the muscle, resulting in involuntary muscle contraction. This is extremely useful for the re-education of muscles post after injuries or surgery as well as improving muscle tone and blood circulation.
