Muscle Stimulation

Muscle Stimulation - EMS

This type of therapy uses light electrical pulses that are transmitted to specific areas of the body through electrodes placed on the skin. There are many different types of electrical stimulation. Some are more beneficial for pain relief or to reduce inflammation, some for muscle spasm, and some actually cause muscles to contract in order to reduce muscle atrophy. Some have combination effects.

The use of  EMS is based on the ‘Gate-Control Theory’ where stimulation of large diameter (A-beta) attenuated the transmission of nociceptive (pain) signals thus reducing the individual's perception of pain. It has also been shown to increase ROM and promote tissue healing.
