Our vision of electrotherapy places the patient at the centre of pain management and rehabilitation. The treatments we recommend are additional solutions to a range of means within the reach of the person suffering.
Health care providers such as physicians, pharmacists, psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and nutritionists work together to relieve pain and improve the patient's well-being.
The TENSFor pain management and helps to restore optimal function
The muscle stimulator To improve muscle function
The denervated muscle stimulatorTo artificially maintain the contractile properties of the muscle due to peripheral nerve damage
One of our therapists, a member of l’Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec, will teach you how to use our TENS and muscle stimulation devices following your condition so you can treat your daily pain efficiently and get optimal results. Our experienced therapists will guide you throughout the learning and make sure you know how to use our devices in a safe and efficient way!
Contact us today to start your pain self-management treatment with functional electrotherapy.
It is a virtual consultation session given by our therapist on your computer, cellphone or tablet, or it can simply be a phone call. Following your condition, we will teach you how to use the different features of the device you will have.
Our partners certified in electrotherapy will teach you in person the use of our devices. You will have then all the necessary knowledge to self-treat your pain wherever you are.

Clinically proven, this method is used in the treatment of many types of pain, both subacute and chronic, by physiotherapists and other health specialists.
TENS electrotherapy enhances the effectiveness of natural pain-control mechanisms. Electrotherapy is a safe treatment: even when used over a long period of time, this method does not present any risk of addiction. Furthermore, this treatment does not cause any undesirable side effects.
The treatment is effective on its own and is also a useful complement to other pharmacological and physical treatments.
The electrical impulses transmitted by electrodes (placed on the surface of the skin, on or near the painful area) stimulate the sensory nerves, which reduces or closes the passage of pain signals to the brain. The sensation of pain is then temporarily reduced or even imperceptible. This mechanism is explained as part of the Gate Control Theory, as proposed by Melzack and Wall in 1965.
TENS acts on the release mechanism of endorphins (the body's natural opiates), which foster well-being, quality sleep and pain relief throughout the body.
A device combining the functionalities of a muscle stimulator and a TENS adapted specifically for the female condition.
The treatment aims to improve the muscle function and quality of one or more normally innervated muscles.
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation is applied to a muscle that is normally innervated. Muscle fibres are not directly stimulated, rather it is through their nerve endings that the stimulation is carried out.
Electrodes are applied to the muscle to be worked so that the current stimulates the motor nerve. Depending on the objective of the treatment, one of the electrodes will be positioned directly on its motor point (strongest point of the muscle) in order to obtain a quality contraction.
The treatment aims to artificially induce muscle contractions to keep the muscle healthy (fibrosis prevention). The nerve axons are then allowed to grow back to reach this muscle and restore its ability to contract naturally.
*TENS is designed to relieve pain. If the pain persists, please consult your physician
Most patients who use their TENS while performing their daily tasks or during conventional physiotherapy exercises can divert their attention from pain and thus reduce their fears about physical activity (Free translation from the original text: Vaillancourt and Léonard, 2017; Yoshida et al., 2015).
The more you move during your physical rehabilitation, the sooner you recover.
The functional electrotherapy approach developed by Electro Service was specifically designed to encourage patients to remain active during their treatment by following the personalized recommendations of a therapist.
