ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION (EMS)
WHAT IS EMS ?
Electric Muscle Stimulation is the process of causing muscle constractions using an external elecrical charge or pulse usually created by an EMS machine
HOW DOES IT WORK ?
The electrodes are placed on the skin over the muscle that you want to exercise. An electrical charge is sent into the muscle charging the muscle’s fibers and causing a muscle contraction. This is the same action muscles experience during exercise and motion. So, it is essentially exercising your muscles as if you were sending the signal for the muscle to contract yourself.
WHEN WILL WE USE EMS ON YOU ?
We use EMS mainly for the purpose of muscular pain relief. EMS can help to reduce muscle spasms and edma which are the leading causes of muscle pain, discomfort and loss of function.
In addition, EMS is helpful in encouraging greater healing by stimulating blood flow and improving range of motion.
We use it when :
You suffer from muscle spasms
Having poor blood circulation
Suffered from muscle atrophy due to disuse
You have lost range of motion due to an injury
You have recently had a surgery and doctors want to prevent venous thrombosis
