Electric Stimulation

Works like electrical aspirin without any negative side effects.  E-stim works on the gate control theory of pain to overload the sensory nerves in the area to block the pain signal from ever reaching the brain to be interpreted as pain.  There are many different types of E-stim, the type used in our office is called Interferential electrical stimulation (IFC).

What to expect:

  • Several small pads will be placed in the area of pain and from there the doctor will begin to increase the intensity of the stimulation.
  • The stimulation is similar to the feeling of your hand being asleep, some describe it as a “tingling” sensation.
  • Once a level is set in which you are able to tolerate, the treatment last about 15 minutes.
