ELECTRICAL SIGNAL THERAPY FOR NEUROPATHY
When it comes to neuropathy, electrical nerve stimulation for foot drop reigns supreme. Besides being an effective remedy to neuropathy issues, it is also a rather simple and non-invasive procedure.

HOW DOES ELECTRICAL SIGNAL THERAPY WORK?
So, what exactly is Electrical Signal therapy (EST.) and how does it work?
As mentioned above, EST is a revolutionary treatment used in cases of neuropathy. With the help of an electro-magnetic gadget, our experts will attach electrodes to your leg.
The process takes about 30 minutes, and after a consultation session, we’ll help advise you on the best route forward.
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT DURING THE EST TREATMENT?
Besides understating the procedure, it’s also integral to rightly prepare. Part of preparing for these therapy sessions is in understanding how they work and what you should likely expect.
- First, the electrodes will be placed on the impacted area
- Second, the electrical current will gradually increase
- At this point, you may get a feeling similar to the pins and needles sensation
- In some cases, you may experience muscle twitching or contracting. This is a perfectly normal response to the current
As you advance with the sessions, you’ll get used to the procedures rather quickly.
At Frederick Foot and Ankle, we understand the pain neuropathy can cause. Our goal is to get you back to as close as we can to moving pain free, if not, no pain at all.
