Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

The adhesive electrodes are applied to specific muscle groups that may be affected by pain and inflammation

Commonly referred to as EMS, Electrical Muscle Stimulation is a form of therapy used as muscle stimulation through electrical current to stimulate specific muscles contraction.

This treatment strategies of placing electrode pads with low frequency electrical current generate rhythmic contractions to targeted specific muscles section.

 

Multiple Types of Treatment for EMS

EMS is used to promote pain relief, reduce inflammation, counter act muscle atrophy and decrease muscle spasm:

Low Volt – For reducing muscle spasm and pain relief.

High Volt Galvanic– Muscle spasm reduction.

Russian Stimulation– Muscle strengthening.

Interferential– Pain and inflammation reduction.

Iontophoresis – A pain and swelling reduction technique.

Micro Current – Increase cellular metabolism to enhance healing.

After Dr. Chery exam, the appropriate procedure   that best treat the patient specific need would be prescribe.

What Does EMS Sensation Feel Like?

The electrical stimulation is a gentle tingling vibration sensation and muscle contraction with each pulse on the area in which the electrode has been place.

The impulses imitate the electrical signals normally produce from your nervous system, generating muscles contractions.  In some cases the body will start to get use to the muscle excitement causing the need to increase intensity of the  treatment for maximum  benefit.  The treatment usually is between 10 to 20 minutes.  Most patient like the feeling of having their muscle contract and the treatment does not hurt.
