One form of physical therapy that is sometimes used sends tiny waves of electricity through the area of your injury. It is a very bizarre sensation and while at first is slightly painful it eases to an irritating tickle and then becomes quite soothing as your body gets used to it. This tool helps to strengthen the muscles surrounding the injury, muscles which oftentimes have not been used for six or more weeks, which in turn helps to return the injured area to its full healthy state. Many people report dreading the use of this tool in early physical therapy sessions initially, but then coming to appreciate it as the tremendously positive affects become evident.
