In brief: Yes it will

Electrical stimulation uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract.
By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations the physical therapist can recruit the appropriate muscle fibers. Contracting the muscle via electrical stimulation helps strengthen the affected muscle.
