Electrical muscle stimulation — often called “e-stim” or “TENS” — is a type of treatment Cornhusker Chiropractic PC often uses in physical therapy or other rehabilitation situations. The three primary uses for this treatment are pain relief, swelling reduction and muscle re- education. The machine provides an electrical current.

Wires from the machine are connected to adhesive patches that are placed on the skin over a predetermined area. Electrical current is then sent from the machine to the patches and delivered into the muscle tissue below, causing a sensory or motor response.
