Somatosensory Stimulation

Somatosensory Stimulation for Treatment of Sports Related Concussion & Injury

Repetitive Peripheral Somatosensory Stimulation is one of the innovative therapies that provides electrical impulses to specific brain structures and improves the connections between pathways in the nervous system. This is a specific electrical stimulation designed to help patients rebuild accurate somatosensory maps of their body which are lost as a result of stroke, cognitive aging, or below optimal brain function. The somatosensory system is the part of the sensory system that relies on touch to experience sensation; light touch, pain, pressure and vibration are all somatosensory experiences. This therapy relies on low-dose electrical stimulation to try to recover sensory loss and, ultimately, to stimulate the senses sufficiently to cause changes in the brain.  Electrical Muscle Stimulation utilizes small electrical currents which stimulate the nerve endings in muscle tissue to assist in reducing inflammation, relax hypertonic muscles, increase motion in muscle groups, improve blood flow, reduce pain.  It may also be used to increase strength and tone in atrophied muscles.
