The Benefits of electrotherapy
The benefits of electrotherapy are vast and even though most people know TENS, the range of different currents used have been proven over the years as effective treatment for muscles and nerve stimulation to arthritis.
So why chose Electro therapy?
Electro therapy is an alternative to pill popping
Unlike medicine that effects the whole body, electrotherapy targets the damaged area only. The different currents can be used to treat all types of pain from sprains to strains penetrating the muscle tissue without harming the skin. Electrotherapy can be used instead or as a compliment to a massage as the treatment relaxes tight muscles which not only cause pain tension but also puts strain on the body as you try to rebalance yourself to compensation for those weak or tight muscles.
It is common knowledge that both short and long term medication can produce adverse and harmful effects. One of the benefits of electrotherapy is that there are no short or long term negative side effects such as dependency.
Safe and convenient treatments that works fast
Electrotherapy can be used more than once a day or on an ad-hoc basis when the patient is in pain. The sessions are short, never more than an hour and usually under half an hour. The pain relief is instant or up to 30 minutes after your session.
