Electrode Placement
by: Anonymous

When an individual is demonstrating trace movements in the shoulder and no movement in the rest of the arm, do you typically start e stim around the scapula/shoulder muscles and then work down the arm when these movements advance?
Thank you!

Comment from Check with your therapist and MD regarding use of e-stim, electrode placement and parameters. E-stim can be used proximally or distally. Some strokes may have proximal return at the shoulder and others distal return to the hand. There is not necessarily a typical pattern of muscle recovery and varies from person to person.
