Electrotherapy : ultrasound, electrical stimulation (TENS, IFT and other forms of currents), high frequency radiation such as SWD (short wave diathermy), laser therapy.

The application of electrical energy as a medicinal procedure is known as Electrotherapy. The origin of electrotherapy and its use in medicine dates back to 1855, when Guillaume Duchenne, the developer of electrotherapy, announced that alternating current was superior to direct current for Electrotherapeutic Muscle contraction activation. What he called the ‘warming affect’ of Direct currents irritated the skin because, at the voltage strengths needed for muscle contractions, they cause the skin to blister (at the anode) and depress (at the cathode). Furthermore, with direct current (DC), each contraction necessitated the interruption and resumption of the current. Furthermore, alternating current may cause strong muscle contractions regardless of the muscle's state, while DC induced contractions were strong when the muscle was strong and weak when the muscle was weak.

What Exactly Does an ELECTROTHERAPist Do?

Physiotherapists utilize electrotherapy to relieve pain, improve healing for soft tissue disorders, and encourage muscle fibers to activate.

We utilize TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) in the clinic since it is a highly safe technique of electrotherapy. TENS is a pain-relieving technique that does not require the use of medication. It works by activating nerves to either divert pain signals away from the brain or to stimulate the brain to produce natural painkillers that are stored in the body.

What is electrotherapy used for?

Electrotherapy is a term that refers to a variety of therapies that use electricity to reduce pain, enhance circulation, heal tissues, strengthen muscles, and promote bone development, all of which contribute to improved physical performance.

How Does It Work?

Electric currents are used to activate nerves and muscles through the skin in electrotherapy. It is not painful because it is a non-invasive treatment method. People only feel relaxed during their sessions. In some cases, they can experience vibration or little tingling in the body.

Here are some of the ways electrotherapy treatment works in the body:

  • It sends electrical impulses that block the pain signals; thereby, reducing pain.

  • Electric physiotherapy also aids in the release of endorphins, which reduce pain or discomfort.

  • It improves blood circulation, which has a healing impact on the body.

  • The treatment activates the cells, resulting in less inflammation in the body.

  • Electrotherapy machines also stimulate muscle tissues for relaxation.

  • It can also prevent muscle atrophy through EMS with muscle stimulation.

Benefits of Electrotherapy in Physiotherapy

Electrotherapy treatments are non-invasive and have little to no adverse effects, despite the fact that they use a variety of devices. Apart from these, electrotherapy has a number of significant advantages, which are stated below:

  • Reduces body pain

  • Alleviates nerve pain

  • Accelerates healing of musculoskeletal injuries

  • Increases blood circulation in the body

  • Heals wounds

  • Relaxes muscle spasms

When Electrotherapy Is Advised?

Electrotherapy is usually used in combination with other therapies rather than as a stand-alone treatment. Electrotherapy may help patients who are receiving physical therapy to participate more actively in specific activities by reducing discomfort and pain. As the risks and side effects of opioid (narcotic) medicines have become more evident, electrotherapy is one of the pain treatment alternatives gaining attention.
