Electrotherapy

The therapeutic application of electrical current

Electrotherapy is the collective term for a range of treatment methods and processes in which electrical current is used for therapeutic purposes. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is by far the most common form of electrotherapy. The nerves in question are stimulated by electrical impulses delivered via electrodes attached to the skin. This blocks the feeling of pain.

Aim: to ease or eliminate pain and circulatory disorders
