Electric Muscle Stimulation is the process of causing muscle constractions using an external elecrical charge or pulse usually created by an EMS machine.
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.
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.
