As medical technology progresses, we’re finding new ways to rehabilitate injuries and treat chronic pain. One of these methods is electrical stimulation, which alleviates pain, boosts healing, and improves your range of motion.

When combined with other treatments like rehabilitative therapy and medication, electrical stimulation can help create an effective, balanced treatment plan.

Whether you’re struggling with an injury, chronic pain, or a disability, treatments like electrical stimulation (or e-stim) can assist healing and help you get back on your feet.

Who benefits from Electrical Stimulation

If you have low back pain, arthritis, or other spinal issues that cause you to have nerve pain in your back, hips, or legs, e-stim may be an effective therapy for you.

The Electrical Stimulation process

During e-stim treatments, you’ll be asked to wear loose-fitting clothing or partially disrobe so we can place small electrodes on your skin. These are small, sticky pads that peel right off after your session.

Small wires connect to the pads and an electrical stimulation machine sends tiny pulses of electricity down the wires. You might feel a light buzzing sensation or the area might get a little warm.

You can receive multiple sessions as e-stim is non-invasive, but we will vary the frequency and strength of the electrical pulses to help keep you from building up a resistance to the treatment.

If you suffer from pain and have been looking for a solution, minimally invasive options like electrical stimulation can help.
