What is TheraStim?

TheraStim is a neuromuscular stimulator which introduces electrical signals to the body through conductive electrode pads to provide therapeutic treatment for a variety of conditions. Typically, treatments require only a few minutes each. The number of treatments required depends on the patient’s symptoms and the treatment plan selected by the doctor. During a TheraStim treatment, patients may be asked to move the area of complaint in order to isolate a specific muscle or group of muscles.

What makes TheraStim different?

The WAVEFORM – Compound, double exponential, asymmetric high level of direct current, deepest soft tissue penetration resonates with the human system body’s natural resistance “drops out”.
The APPLICATION – The patient is in motion during the treatment. Using same movement that causes pain or displays faulty movement pattern, opens up current to the charge of injury and dissipates charge of injury more effectively.
The OUTCOME – Results are immediate and dramatic, significantly shortens healing process, reduction of scar tissue and enhanced tissue condition.

Increased Range of Motion

TheraStim is often selected by healthcare professionals to help relieve pain from muscle spasms or injuries. Such injuries may include strains, sprains, spasms, tears and bruises. As a result of TheraStim treatments, patients frequently experience an increase in their range of motion in the areas that were treated. This is seen almost immediately following treatment. In addition, treatments often help reduce pain in the area of injury, or pain associated with trigger points.
