Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

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

Electrical Muscle Stimulation referred to as EMS, 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  as a result cause contractions to targeted specific muscles section.

Multiple Types of Treatment for EMS

EMS 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.

What Does EMS Sensation Feel Like?

The electrical stimulation is a gentle tingling vibration sensation.  EMS also contract the  muscle with each pulse on the area the electrode  place.

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