Electrical stimulation sends mild electrical pulses through the skin to help stimulate injured muscles or manipulate nerves to reduce pain. It 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. Electrical stimulation therapy helps muscle recovery by sending 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. Those muscles also improve their strength through repeated cycles of contraction and relaxation. Electrical stimulation can also “train” muscles to respond to the body’s natural signals to contract. Electrical stimulation may not be appropriate for everyone, but for many people this painless procedure is accelerating recovery and providing relief from painful or uncomfortable symptoms.
