What is electrotherapy Dubai?

Treating patients with electrical energy to ease their pain and speed up their recovery is called "electrotherapy." Physiotherapists use targeted electrical stimulation to better help patients with chronic pain, muscle injuries, and nerve pain. Electrotherapy is a gentle and non-invasive process that depends on the physiotherapist's equipment.

Using electrotherapy and physiotherapy together increases the chances of a quick recovery. Electrotherapy is a safe and non-addictive form of electrical treatment that doesn't involve electric shocks. Despite its scary name, electrotherapy is not electric shock therapy. It's a more advanced form of medicine that uses a very low-level current, completely safe for patients. This treatment is commonly used for injuries to the musculoskeletal system, especially in sports injuries.

Nevertheless, there are six primary forms of electrotherapy, which include the following.
  • Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
  • Shock wave therapy
  • Electroacupuncture
  • Interferential
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

    Types Of Electrotherapy In Physiotherapy

    Using electricity for treatment is helpful when medicines don't work well. It depends on the patient's situation and what they need. Physiotherapists often use different types of electrotherapy, such as:

    TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation):

    In TENS electrotherapy, a tiny electrical gadget is used to send little shocks through the skin. It helps with things like back pain, pain during childbirth, and arthritis.

    Interferential Therapy:

    This is called IFT, which is a more intense type of TENS therapy. It uses two strong electric currents at a high frequency. It's good for easing pain, boosting muscles, and improving blood flow.

    Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS):

    In this kind of electrotherapy, the physiotherapist works on the muscles instead of the nerves. EMS is a special type where your motor neurons are encouraged to make the muscles tighten. This helps treat muscle loss.

    Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (PENS):

    PENS is when tiny needles go into your skin to give electrical stimulation. You can use it at home, and it's better than TENS.

    Therapeutic Ultrasound:

    In physiotherapy, a special kind of electrotherapy uses a device called a transducer instead of sticky electrode pads. Therapeutic ultrasound, as it's called, helps muscles and ligaments heal faster.

    How Does It Work?

    Electrotherapy is a treatment that uses electricity to make your nerves and muscles feel active through your skin. It doesn't hurt because it's not invasive. Instead, people usually feel calm during the sessions. Sometimes, they might feel a gentle vibration or a little tingling in their body.

    Here are some of the ways electrotherapy treatment works in the body: .
    • It can also prevent muscle atrophy through EMS with muscle stimulation.
    • Electrotherapy machines also stimulate muscle tissues for relaxation.
    • The treatment stimulates the cells leading to reduced inflammation in the body.
    • It creates a healing effect on the body by improving blood circulation.
    • Electric physiotherapy also helps in releasing endorphins that decrease pain or discomfort.
    • It sends electrical impulses that block the pain signals; thereby, reducing pain.

    The therapy tends to have an effect similar to tingling massaging which decreases pain. It can have a similar effect on the release of natural painkillers called endorphins which can subsequently prevent pain transmission. 

    Nevertheless, be sure to take precautions if you are in early pregnancy, have numbness in the region, have lymphedema, have a pacemaker, have suffered a stroke, have undiagnosed pain, have a heart disease, have cancer, or have epilepsy.

    Electrotherapy can be successfully utilized at home with the corresponding equipment, such as TENS machines. 

    The TENS unit is portable, battery operated, and can be used on the go facilitating the engagement of people in activities during the therapy session. Electrotherapy does not warrant immobility and can be used during ordinary tasks.

    • For the most part, insurance policies pay for the whole or at least the main amount of the electrotherapy treatment cost. 

      The TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a battery-operated small-size device. Its electrodes are covered with adhesive pads and attach directly to the skin. The device sends electrical impulses to the skin through electrodes as to relieve the pain and enhance bodily functioning.
