Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

“Electrical muscle stimulation is a process through which low-level electrical currents are used to stimulate muscles, forcing them to contract”

EMS is a valuable treatment tool that can be used as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation protocol to address the following issues:

MUSCLE RE-EDUCATION

Muscle re-education through electrical muscle stimulation is used in final stages of physical rehabilitation following an injury that has either left certain muscles unused for a long period of time, or that has affected the brain.

MUSCLE ATROPHY

Muscle atrophy is a symptom characterized by a decrease in muscle mass and can occur as a result of numerous medical conditions often seen in stroke patients, arthritic patients, patients with neurological deficits, and post-surgical patients.

EMS is FDA cleared and supports:

  • Increased Muscle Strength and Density
  • Larger Muscle Size
  • Improved (VO2) Max
  • More Explosive Strength
  • Faster Muscle Recovery

EMS helps to efficiently and effectively:

  • Boost speed, endurance and stamina
  • Increase vertical jump height
  • Develop more muscle strength
  • Recover faster after exertion
  • Enhance blood circulation
  • Prevent muscle imbalances
  • Improve core strength

 

“Electro stimulation is not meant to replace your fitness routine, but rather enhance the workouts, to help maximize training.”
