electrotherapy

the use of electrical energy in the treatment of injury, relief of pain or other therapeutic applications to stimulate tissue healing and restore function. Though the exact mechanism of action remains unclear, electrotherapy is used in physiotherapy to enhance natural healing. Electrical stimulation has been shown to block transmission of pain and promote endorphin release. Different forms of electrotherapy, each producing different frequencies and waveforms, include transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TENS), short-wave diathermy and interferential electrotherapy. The various forms are used, as appropriate, to treat injury to different tissue types and at different stages.
