  5. Different Types of Stim • Interferential • Russian • Pre-modulated • Hivolt • Micro-volt • EMS

  6. Russian Stimulation • Russian is similar to EMS but the difference is that it is used for deeper muscle penetration and a more complete contraction of the muscle fibers • Used to reduce muscle spasms, muscle tension, and to strengthen the muscle • Originally developed by the Russian Olympic team to help intensify their muscle strengthening program

Interferential Stim • Uses two different frequencies which combined together create a third stronger frequency that penetrates deeper into the affected area • Helps for greater pain relief and is used to effectively provide symptomatic relief and management of chronic pain and/or as a treatment for the post traumatic or post surgical client
