What is electrotherapy?

It is the use of electrical energy in different ways in medicine.

The electric current acts on each cell and tissue it passes through. The type and extent of the response obtained varies depending on the tissue type and its electrical current response characteristics.

What Is Electrotherapy Used For❔

⚡️Creating muscle contraction through nerve or muscle stimulation,
⚡️Stimulating the sensory nerves in the treatment of pain,
⚡️Creating an electrical field in biological tissues in order to change or accelerate the healing process,
It is used to create an electrical field on the skin surface so that ions known to contribute to the healing process can be transmitted through the skin.

Electrical stimulating currents should not be used alone as the main treatment modality. Using it together with other physiotherapy and rehabilitation methods will maximize the effectiveness of this modality.
