Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) contracts muscles using electric impulses. The impulses are generated by a machine or a transportable TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator) unit and delivered through electrodes placed on the skin. Our main uses of EMS are for rehabilitative purposes in order to help strengthen weak and/or overused muscles.
When using EMS treatments, the patient will experience a tingling sensation, that, with increased intensity, will allow the muscles to both contract and relax. In doing so, the inflammation that has been built up will decrease and as a result the range of motion increases and the pain decreases.
Microcurrent, an extremely low-level electrical current, works alongside EMS by reducing pain and muscle spasms, as well as increasing range of motion. EMS and microcurrent therapy are very beneficial for arthritis, back and neck pain, fibromyalgia, headaches, neuropathy, sciatica, slow-healing wounds, and tendon/ligament pain.
Every tissue in the human body has a specific electrical frequency which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Microcurrent therapy treats nerve and muscle pain, inflammation, and other health challenges by working to restore normal frequencies within the cells and reduce pain and inflammation while increasing normal function by increasing blood flow.
