Electrical Stimulation

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is the use of low level electrical stimulation via electrodes placed on the skin. It is used in neurological and orthopedic conditions to strengthen muscle, retard muscle atrophy, and to re-educate muscle for patients that are non-weight bearing or have limited use of a muscle.

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is used for pain management by increasing circulation and activating the bodies own chemical pain relievers.
