Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy

e-stim in boise

E-Stim is short for Electrical Muscle Stimulation. It is applied through adhesive pads connected to a machine that can control the wavelength, frequency, and intensity of the stimulation. We use various settings based on what your need is - acute pain, chronic pain, muscle tension, and more. We often apply a heating pad along with this therapy to increase effectiveness.  Our machines are capable of Russian Stim, Interferential Current (IFC), and High Volt Galvanic.  In addition, we have the capability to combine High Volt Galvanic with Ultrasound in the same treatment.  This is great for muscle spasms and chronic pain.   At this time, most insurance plans cover E-stim, with the exception of the government programs of Medicaid, Tricare, and Medicare.
