E-stim, or 'electroacupuncture' uses a small amount of electrical current from electrodes to run through a needle to stimulate specific Acupuncture points. The electrodes are commonly used in pairs so that the electrical impulses can travel between selected points. A large benefit of this method is that it allows varying levels stimulation without constant movement or manipulation of needles. During a typical treatment, needles are inserted and the patient is left to rest with the needles for 20-30 minutes. E-stim provides stimulation to the points while the patient is resting. E-stim is effective on treating conditions such as: sciatica, migraines, arthritis, injury of knee ligaments, tennis elbow, bone fracture, intestinal adhesion pain, kidney and abdominal pain. Although E-stim is used to treat a wide variety of issues, it is especially effective in the treatment of neurological diseases, including chronic pain, spasm, and paralysis.
