What is Electric Muscle Stimulation?

It can be defined as a process that uses low-level electrical current to stimulate the muscles which force them to contract. These devices are regularly used for stimulating the muscles in several ways. We provide electrical muscle stimulation which can help in relaxing the muscles when they feel too tight around any joint as it can allow effective manipulation. Stimulation will help in providing a deep heating effect underneath the skin, which will encourage blood circulation and relax your muscles. You don’t have to worry at all as this technique is completely painless, and you will feel the warmth.

Benefits of Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electric muscle stimulation can help to build basic tone and strengthen the weak muscles by forcing a contraction in the muscles that will make the cognitive link between the muscles and the brains strengthen. Physical rehab patients can retain the optimal strength of their muscles after electrical stimulation and strenuous exercises.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation Can Help Patients In The Following Ways:

Muscle Atrophy: Due to a decrease in muscle mass, muscle atrophy can occur. Electrical muscle stimulation helps in slowing down or preventing the effects of muscle atrophy as it keeps the weakened muscles active.
Osteoarthritis: Due to the degradation of joint tissues, osteoarthritis can be caused. Electrical muscle stimulation can strengthen the muscles of patients who have developed hip osteoarthritis.
Pressure Sore Prevention: Patients who are unable to move by themselves and are bound to wheelchairs or beds require constant pressure applied to specific areas of their body. Electrical muscle stimulation helps in applying pressure that can help in reducing the incidence of pressure sores.

Who is it for?

We provide electrical muscle stimulation to people of all types and sizes who have pain in their muscles. This technique can be used in the early stages of physical rehabilitation after an injury, which has left some muscles in pain.
