How Does Electrical Muscle Stimulation Work?

Electrical Muscle Stimulation or EMS is a specialized medical treatment that uses electric currents to induce muscle contraction. Patients do not experience pain from the therapy. In fact, many find a session an enjoyable experience.

The Benefits of EMS

You may benefit from including EMS as part of an individualized treatment program. As a non-invasive therapy, EMS has shown to be an effective treatment for many. A care plan including this therapy offers significant benefits like:

  • Improving blood flow to an area of injury, promoting the healing process in affected areas.
  • Increasing muscle tone and muscle strength in weakened muscles.
  • Strengthening the link between muscle movement and your brain, making it easier to move from easier exercises to more complex tasks.
  • Preventing or slowing muscle atrophy, or a decrease of muscle mass.
  • Encouraging relaxation, as the therapy releases tension in muscles, and encourages endorphin production.

Individuals who have chronic conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and athletes who are looking to enhance their performance can both benefit from EMS. Those with MS can experience a reduction in muscle tension and discomfort after a session, making movement easier. Athletes can use EMS to reduce swelling and soreness after a workout. It can also be used to decrease muscle stiffness as part of injury prevention. Speak with Dr. Bohatiuk today to explore your treatment options.

Start on the Path to Recovery

After undergoing an initial evaluation, EMS may be incorporated into an individualized treatment program to reduce pain and speed up recovery. Patients may pair EMS with massage therapy, chiropractic treatments, and other services at Bear Chiropractic Center. Patients undergoing EMS may need multiple treatments depending on their condition and their individual response.
