The common electrical modalities used in the clinic are simply pieces of equipment that are designed to take ordinary current flowing from a wall outlet and convert it to produce specific physiologic effects on human tissue.

Clinically, following surgery or injury, physical therapists use electrical currents to create muscle contraction, to increase strength and prevent disuse atrophy, through nerve or muscle stimulation (electrical stimulator using high voltage, low voltage, or alternating current), stimulate sensory nerves to reduce pain (TENS), stimulate or alter the healing process of injured tissue, preventing scar tissue (interferential current, MENS, cold lasers), and drive ions beneficial to the healing process through the skin into the healing connective tissues (iontophoresis).
