Painless therapy for your pet.
Long recognized in human medicine as a valuable tool for strengthening weak muscles, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, or e-stim, can work equally well on dogs and cats, helping to control pain and restore muscle function after surgery or injury – even before your pet is up and active again.
How it works …
Normally, the body causes muscles to contract by delivering electrical impulses to the muscles via nerves. E-stim works sort of the same way. Electrodes are placed on the skin over target muscles. Next, an electrical stimulation is applied, causing a contraction to occur. The frequency, intensity and duration of the stimulation depends on the pet’s injury and response to treatment.
