NEUROMUSCULAR ELECTRICAL STIMULATION (NMES)

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation: is characterized by a low volt stimulation targeted to
stimulate motor nerves to cause a muscle contraction.  Contraction/relaxation of muscles has
been found to effectively treat a variety of musculoskeletal and vascular conditions.

















Benefit of NMES: Muscle re-education

Indications for NMES use include:
Muscles not firing correctly / muscle imbalance
Joint effusion (swelling)
Muscle atrophy or weakness from disuse or neurological condition
Circulatory problems
Muscle spasms
Ulcers / wounds
Tendon and fracture healing

Your pet will feel:
A tightening sensation in the area under the electrodes. Depending on the intensity, the
contraction will range from a mere twitching of the tissues to a full contraction resulting in
movement across one or more joints may occur.
