How Does Electrotherapy Work?

Electrotherapy is a simple stimulation of nerves in the body through small electrical impulses, designed to excite the nerves already there. Nerves are very sensitive, so we can use extremely minimal frequencies, preventing any harm to the body.


Electrotherapy has a wide range of uses, though ElectroMedical Technologies focuses on its pain-relieving capabilities.

Why Is Electrotherapy Perfect for Treating Pain?


Pain relief is one of the most promising applications of bio-electrical stimulation, especially for the millions of men and women who experience pain and want an alternative to toxic painkillers and invasive surgical procedures.


It blocks nerve signals in a safe and natural way, so the brain doesn’t sense the pain. This delivers relief while allowing other medicine to safely treat the underlying cause of the pain.


How Electrotherapy Reduces Pain

Electrotherapy reduces pain by manipulating specific nerves, which in turn reduces the sensation of pain we experience. Here’s a deeper look at the science behind that.


Pulsating electrical waves interfere with the transmission of neural pain signals into the brain, reducing or even eliminating the pain people feel. From a physiotherapy point of view, the effectiveness and benefits of electrical nerve stimulation can be explained by the “gate control theory” of pain management.

The gate control theory says that before pain signals reach the brain, they encounter “nerve gates” in the central nervous system. Electrotherapy closes these gates, which reduces the strength and intensity of the pain signals that pass through them — if they even pass through and reach the brain at all.

If you simply want to live pain free, electrotherapy may be right for you.
