Electrotherapy is used for managing chronic and intractable pain, post-traumatic acute pain, post-surgical acute pain, immediate post-surgical stimulation of muscles to prevent venous thrombosis, wound healing, and drug delivery. It is also used to relax muscle spasms, prevent and delay disuse atrophy, increase local blood circulation, rehabilitate and re-educate electrical muscle stimulation, maintain and increase range of motion, and manage chronic and intractable pain.
Acute and chronic edema, peripheral blood flow, iontophoresis, urinary and fecal incontinence, pain management, treatment of neuromuscular dysfunction, improved range of joint mobility, tissue repair, and these conditions are all treated with electrotherapy.
increases strength and increases joint range of motion
Motor control is improved, which prevents muscular atrophy.
Enhanced local blood flow
repeatedly causes shortened, constricted soft tissues to stretch
improves protein production and microcirculation to speed up wound healing
Restores connective and cutaneous tissue integrity and speeds up absorption
affects the permeability of blood vessels
increases blood cell, protein, and lymphatic flow mobility
increases venous, lymphatic, and artery flow
Pharmaceutical agent delivery
reduces pelvic discomfort and strengthens the muscles of the pelvic floor.
Treatment might result in full continence.
