Muscle stimulation uses a type of electrical current that can cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. This can be useful to assist in muscle strengthening, as well as maintenance of muscle mass and strength during periods of prolonged immobilization, for example after being in a cast due to a fracture.
By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations, the physiotherapist can recruit the appropriate muscle fibers. Along with increasing muscle strength, the contraction of the muscle also helps to promote blood supply to the area, which assists in the healing process. This modality can prove to be especially useful in early stage rehabilitation, making it possible to contract a specific muscle that is unable to do so on it’s own.

My experience with Dr. Vigil's Advanced Physiotherapy was good. I had severe back pain since last 8 months. Due to my busy schedule I am not able to go any treatments.
Before come to Dr. Vigil's Advanced Physiotherapy clinic I have tried two physiotherapy in Andheri near to my office. Unfortunately both failed.
But here at Dr. Vigil's place the process treatment is different. Dr. Vigil is having advanced shockwave machine which do faster healing process.
After week physiotherapy my backpain almost gone. Now as directed I am going gym and with his guidance I have recover from my prolonged back pain.
My personal advice to everyone who has back pain and looking for solution than Dr. Vigil is doctor you looking for complete treatment.
Thank you Dr. Vigil and its team to helping me from bad back pain.

When considered effectiveness of this doctor's treatment I can say it's really good. But on the other hand the cost of treatment is really high. 700₹ per session and I was recommended 21 sessions for my backpain.
