Electrotherapy is a specific form of medical treatment used in physiotherapy that utilizes small electrical impulses to repair tissue, stimulate muscles, and increase muscle strength. It can help reduce pain and promote healing in the body.
Electrotherapy devices can provide various forms of therapeutic waves. An electrical stimulation device includes electrodes that are attached to the treatment area, and when activated, the electrical energy of the device causes the muscles to contract. This contraction mimics the natural movement of the body during activity and can prevent muscle atrophy.
