Neuromuscular Electric Nerve Stimulation (E-Stim/NMES)
NMES allows us to increase/maintain muscle strength/girth for the neurologic or post-surgical/injury patient. NMES causes an excitation of nerve cells which can help with neuroplasticity to elicit muscle contractions and decrease pain/swelling.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
Allows us to help treat chronic and acute pain. This modality works by affecting alpha and delta fibers the sensing nerve fibers in the body. When we stimulate these nerves, we can help over-ride the nerve pain sensation in those areas.
