1 doctor agrees
In brief: It depends
Electric stimulation has been used for over 100 years.
These days you have units that use either milliamps or microamps. There are now very sophisticated microcurrent machines in use by physicians, chiropractors, pts and athletic trainers. I think they are the most effective. Find a frequency specific microcurrent provider who has a machine w/ many settings including ones just for tendons.
