Electrical Stimulation and Interferential Therapy in Ellijay, GA

At your first appointment, your Physical Therapist will perform a thorough evaluation and develop a personalized rehabilitation treatment program with you that may include Electrical stimulation/interferential therapy.

 

WHAT Is Electrical Stimulation and Interferential Therapy ?

Electrical stimulation (e-stim) and Interferential use electrical pulses to mimic the action of signals coming from neurons (cells in your nervous system). These mild electrical currents target either muscles or nerves.

E-stim therapy for muscle recovery sends signals to targeted muscles to make them contract. By causing repeated muscle contractions, blood flow improves, helping repair injured muscles.

Electrical stimulation/interferential therapy

Interferential is a type of e-stim that focuses on pain relief that sends signals on a different wavelength so they reach the nerves, rather than the muscles. Interferential current can block pain receptors from being sent from nerves to the brain.

Benefits of Electrical Stimulation and Interferential therapy

R

Relieving Muscle Spasms.

Electric muscle stimulation can relax muscles, easing tightness and soreness.

R

Working Weakened or Atrophied Muscles.

Broken bones, soft tissue injuries, neuromuscular disorders, and certain forms of illness can inhibit movement and exercise, causing muscles to become weak from disuse.
E-stim can be used to keep these muscles active and prevent atrophy.

R

Retraining Muscles After Surgery or Illness.

Occasionally, following orthopedic surgery or illness a patient may have difficulty contracting muscles at will. In such cases, E-stim can be used for muscle re-education. The electrical impulses contract the muscle involuntarily.

R

Aiding Athletic Recovery.

E-stim active recovery program settings use specific low-level frequencies to increase blood flow, remove lactic acid, release endorphins, and promote muscle relaxation.

What Our Clients Say

Linda Weber

I have used Bryant PT for over 5 yrs. I first utilized this practice following a total hip replacement in 2017. After a second hip replacement in 2019, I returned for more therapy. My orthopedic surgeon was very pleased with the progress I made due to the exercise program I was given. I have continued to exercise on my own 3 days a week through Bryant PT’s Wellness program. The therapists at this practice are very competent and always willing to help you reach your therapy goals. You won’t find a better PT experience!

Mike Thompson

I have known Larry Bryant since 1998. As a head football and baseball coach for over 20+ years, I have seen many physical therapists from all across the state of Georgia, who have rehab my players. Larry and the staff of physical therapist, do an outstanding job, treating their patients. Their goal is to get the patient as close to 100% as possible, and they spend as much time with each patient to accomplish this goal. From the office staff , the technicians and the physical therapist all do an outstanding job. But the most important thing to me is everyone is it first class person who cares deeply for their patient. The community of Ellijay is very lucky to have this type of quality medical care. The only reason I gave BPT a five is because it was the highest number I could choose.
