Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is the application of electrical stimulation to a group of muscles, most often for the purpose of muscle rehabilitation. This technique is primarily used by acupuncturists and physical therapists as a form of rehabilitation after injury, stroke, or other incident that results in the loss of muscle function. NMES is achieved by passing an electrical impulse from a device through electrodes placed on the skin over the targeted muscle or muscles.
For the purpose of rehabilitation, neuromuscular electrical stimulation is typically used in conjunction with acupuncture. The intent of this is to stimulate the nerves in the muscle with electrical impulses, since they are a natural part of the normal communication between the brain and the muscular system in an uninjured or unaffected body.
