Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) can stimulate resting muscle fibers, helping to improve their strength. The treatment is used to reignite the muscles' ability to contract. This may help you control pain, gain strength, increase physical function, and retrain movements you may have lost.
EMS can help you regain control, improve musculoskeletal injuries, strengthen weak muscles, and relieve pain. The process involves training your muscles in a way that normal workouts cannot. An EMS device will send electrical pulses to your motor nerves to create muscle contractions and engage your muscle fibers to help strengthen your body. The treatment may be more effective when the muscles are very weak and you have difficulty performing normal anti-gravity exercises.
