Denervated muscles (tumor)


Denervated muscles - Electrotherapy

Stefan used the STIWELL electrotherapy device successfully to treat denervated muscles related to thyroid cancer and spinal cord tumor.

Since the age of three years, Stefan has suffered from a rare type of thyroid cancer. He is not treated at a hospital but given loving care by his family at home. Due to a tumor pressing on the nerves of his spinal cord, Stefan is paralyzed from the chest down.

Stefan started using the STIWELL electrotherapy device. His father helps him twice a day to use the programme for denervated muscles (rectangular pulse, trapezoid pulse). The electrodes are mainly attached to his legs.

Regular training has led to clear improvements. Stefan’s father says: “Before that, my son’s legs were absolutely still, but now I can see him move parts of his leg muscles.”
