WHAT IS ELECTRICAL THERAPY?
Electrical therapy is a powerful way to manage pain, restore range of motion, and treat musculoskeletal conditions. By sending electrical stimulation to your nerves, muscles, and tendons, you’ll find pain relief that lasts. Electrical therapy is often paired with other physiotherapy treatments, such as exercise, manual therapy, and Pilates. Talk to your physiotherapist about trying electrical therapy, today!
IS ELECTRICAL THERAPY RIGHT FOR YOU?
If you suffer from nerve pain, experience numbness, tingling, burning, muscle weakness, or general pain, electrical therapy may be right for you. This treatment can also be used to prevent muscle atrophy and increase circulation for wound repair. Electrical therapy is not recommended for pregnant women or in areas where open wounds may be present.
Benefits of electrical therapy include:
• Stimulating bone growth
• Repairing tissue
• Strengthening muscle
• Improving circulation
• Reducing pain

I saw Ranko for my first physio visit. I am a dentist and experience tightness in my neck and shoulders a lot. Ranko did a thorough assessment and recommended the proper treatment best suited for my needs.
My body felt so relaxed and relieved after my visit with Ranko. He gave me suggestions on how I can best prevent further injuries due to my work. Since them I have noticed huge improvements in my range of motion and less discomfort in my head and shoulders.— Dr. Neda R.
