  title={Electrotherapy and Tissue Repair},
  author={Tim M Watson},
[Abstract] Electrotherapy is one form of intervention that has the capacity to influence the processes associated with tissue repair. Some modalities are more effective at achieving this than others, and there are differences in they type of tissue that respond to the different modalities. Numerous electrotherapy modalities have significant clinical effects, but not primarily on tissue repair, and they are excluded from this review for this reason.
