Electrical Stimulation Therapy for New Jersey Patients
At Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (AOSMI), we are committed to providing safe and effective treatments to our patients in New Jersey. One of the therapies we offer is electrical stimulation therapy, an approach that harnesses electrical energy to reduce pain and reeducate muscles after a period of disuse.
Understanding Electrical Stimulation Therapy
Electrical stimulation therapy, also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), involves the application of electrical currents to specific areas of the body. These electrical currents stimulate nerves and muscles, leading to a range of therapeutic benefits. This type of therapy can be used to:
Reeducate Muscles & Facilitate Rehabilitation
One of the key applications of electrical stimulation therapy is retraining or reeducating muscles after surgery or any other extended period during which the muscles are not used. It can help strengthen muscles, improve range of motion, and enhance functional mobility, making it a helpful component of recovery for patients with orthopedic injuries or conditions.
Electrical stimulation therapy is also highly effective for pain management. It can help alleviate pain by interfering with pain signals sent to the brain and promoting the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. This therapy can be used to address various conditions, including musculoskeletal pain, nerve-related pain, and pain associated with chronic diseases.
