What is it?

This is an electrotherapy modality sometimes used by physiotherapists to provide pain relief for certain clients/conditions. It works by stimulating the nerves responsible for feeling, which in turn activates our body’s natural pain relief mechanisms.

Common uses include musculoskeletal pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, shin splints & restless leg syndrome.

What can I expect?

  • Your physiotherapist will place 1-4 small adhesive pads to the affected area for a few minutes.

  • The gel pads contain electrodes through which the electrical current is transmitted.

  • You will likely feel a light tingling sensation, very similar to experiencing ‘pins & needles’ and sometimes twitching of the muscle
