Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy, or EMS Therapy, offers a quick solution for instant pain relief if you’re experiencing fatigue, soreness, inflammation, swelling, or other symptoms affecting any of your muscles. With little to no recovery time, many patients turn to Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy to find pain relief. EMS Therapy may help improve the following:
If you are suffering from muscle pain from a physical injury or medical condition, you may benefit from Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy to treat your symptoms.
During EMS Therapy, electrodes are connected to a device responsible for producing the gentle electric currents you’ll feel throughout the treatment. These electric currents are intended to stimulate the motor nerves within your muscles, stimulating these nerves to cause your muscle to contract. As the muscles contract, your body will release endorphins to reduce pain and increase relaxation. This treatment promotes healing by improving circulation, as electric stimulation enhances blood flow to the affected area. This is beneficial in reversing inflammation or swelling caused by an injury or a medical condition, such as osteoarthritis.
