What is Electrical Stimulation?

Electrical stimulation systems or devices make use of self-adhesive electrodes. First, the electrodes are placed on your body, mainly around the target area where the pain and discomfort occur.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone who has a musculoskeletal (bone, cartilage, ligaments, tissues), neurological, respiratory, or cardiovascular condition that affects their physical function, movements, or quality of life can benefit from physiotherapy services. This includes people with acute or chronic pain, bone injuries, sprains, strains, fractures, arthritis, stroke, spinal cord injuries, Parkinson's disease, asthma, COPD, and heart conditions.

In most cases, you don't need a doctor's referral to access the services, although some insurance plans may require it. However, your doctor may recommend physiotherapy as part of your treatment plan if you have a complex or severe medical condition.

During a physiotherapy session, your physiotherapist will conduct an initial assessment to identify your condition and treatment goals and develop a customized treatment plan. Our physiotherapist will also monitor your progress, adjust your treatment plan as needed, and provide you with home exercises and self-care instructions.

The number of sessions you need depends on the nature and severity of your condition, the reason behind the treatment, and your response to the treatment. Our experts will establish a customized treatment plan that includes the recommended number of sessions, the frequency, and the duration of each session.

A physiotherapy session typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on your condition and treatment goals. However, your first session may be longer to allow for a comprehensive assessment and treatment plan development.
