Electro therapy is a therapy that is used as a medical treatment and uses electric energy for the treatment. Electric therapy is a technique used in mostly neurological disorders or diseases by stimulating the brain through electric shocks. Electric stimulation is also used to relieve you and your bodies from prolonged and stubborn pain. The use of electric therapy started first in ancient Rome in 63 A.D. It gained a rapid momentum in 16th to 18th centuries where multifarious electrostatic devices were used that helped in the treatment of severe headaches and other types of pains. Now-a-days it has become an effective therapy to lower down pain and many other related issues.
This effective therapy uses electrical signals that actually interfere with the transmission of neural pain signals into the brain. After this electro therapy slows down or generally distracts the message from the nerves to the brain. In lay man’s term, electro therapy affects the patient ‘Pain Door’. When conventional medicines fail to cure then this therapy proves to be effective in curing and curbing your pain. Also Electro therapy can even be used for healing purposes in regards to tissue damage. At Medstar Rehab, electro therapy is administered by a team of trained medical professionals that not only diagnose your problem properly but also look out for a proper and effective cure.
