The Science of Non-invasive Stimulation
Inside your body are electrical impulses that help heal bone fractures. However, when you experience a fracture, those impulses may not function properly and your surgeon may make a diagnosis of fracture nonunion. Electrical stimulation assists in healing the fracture nonunion by sending weak electrical impulses directly to the bone that mimics your body's natural healing process. This treatment promotes healing by inducing weak electrical signals at the fracture nonunion site. Similar effects are present when a surgeon determines the need for an adjunct to primary lumbar spine surgery and prescribes a spine fusion stimulator. Electrical stimulation is utilized to create the best environment for allowing bone graft to fuse to the vertebra.
