Electrotherapeutic devices can offer different therapeutic waveforms. An electrical stimulation device includes electrodes that are attached to the treatment area and when activated, the electrical energy of the device causes the muscles to contract. This contraction imitates the body’s natural movement during activity and can prevent muscular atrophy.
Used alone or in conjunction with other modalities, such as therapeutic ultrasound, electrotherapy can be used in physical therapy to treat many diverse patient issues including:
* Post-Surgical Pain & Swelling
* Complications associated with Diabetes
