EMS Therapy / TENS Theraphy

What is EMS & TENS Therapy?

EMS Therapy (or Electrical Muscle Stimulator) is essentially an electronic machine with the capacity to contract your muscles via an electrical current passed through your muscle. The benefits of using EMS machine is to relax muscle spasms, increased blood circulation, prevent muscle atrophy, improving muscle tone and re-education of paralyzed muscles.

How does EMS Therapy help to Strengthen Your Muscles?

EMS may help you to facilitate the strengthening of weak muscles. There are several theories on how EMS may assist muscle strengthening.

EMS Therapy / TENS Therapy

One potential reason is that when you maximally contract a muscle, at best, only 30% of all your muscle fibres are in a state of contraction. The remaining 70% are dormant and awaiting recruitment when the contracting fibres fatigue. With EMS you can potentially electrically stimulate these resting muscle fibres to improve their strength.

EMS appears to be more effective when the muscles are very weak and you have difficulty performing normal anti-gravity exercises.

EMS units are used to treat a number of medical conditions such as;

  • Long-term disuse after fracture or prolonged bed rest,
  • Progressive strengthening for joint and muscle injury,
  • Immoblized limbs,
  • Stress incontinence,
  • Muscle weakness,
  • Improving muscle tone,
  • After weight loss or childbirth,
  • Muscle spasticity following a stroke.
