Also called E-Stim, this treatment simulates the electrical current normally created by the Nervous System and causes muscles to repeatedly contract. This in turn increases blood flow to the area, helps strengthen weakened muscles, and can help retrain muscle fibers to respond to the body's normal neurological signals.
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) helps reverse muscle atrophy by painlessly stimulating nerves within specific muscle groups. This can be especially helpful for patients with paralysis or paraparesis as it improve neurological function in those limbs.
Be sure to check out some of our Patient Success Stories! For patients like Marley, Harley, and Wooky, E-Stim therapy was integral to jumpstarting their Neurological system so that we could start practicing prescribed exercises!
