Back Pain – a dominant problem in society
Back pain is a defining problem that society faces. It’s something that affects many people and can greatly impact their quality of life. Luckily, there are many treatment options available, and one of the most promising is electrotherapy, specifically the StimaWell 120mtrs therapy by reLounge. In this article, we’ll delve into what electrotherapy and the StimaWell 120mtrs therapy are, how they work, and just how effective they can be in treating back pain. So let’s dive in and learn more!
What is electrotherapy?
Electrotherapy is a form of physical therapy that uses electrical impulses to stimulate the muscles and nerves. It is a non-invasive and safe method of treating pain, including back pain. There are several types of electrotherapy that can be used depending on the patient’s condition and the type of pain.
- One type of electrotherapy is Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), which sends weak electrical impulses to the skin to relieve pain. TENS is effective in treating various types of pain, including back pain.
- Another type of electrotherapy is Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), which is used to stimulate and strengthen muscles. NMES is commonly used to treat muscle injuries, including those in the back.
- Low frequency alternating current electrotherapy (NFES) is another type of electrotherapy that sends a low frequency current to the body to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
- Interferential current therapy (IFT) is also a popular type of electrotherapy that uses two sources of current with different frequencies to relieve pain and improve blood flow. IFT can be used to treat different types of pain, including back pain.
It is important to note that electrotherapy should always be performed by a qualified therapist to ensure its effectiveness and safety.
How does electrotherapy work?
Electrotherapy works by using electrical impulses that are sent through electrodes to the affected part of the body. The impulses stimulate the muscles and nerves, providing relief from pain and discomfort. Electrotherapy can also help to reduce inflammation and improve circulation, which can further aid in pain management. This form of therapy is often used as a complementary treatment alongside other therapies.

Patients receive the therapy by lying on the special electrode mat, which sends weak electrical pulses to the affected area of the back.
