Benefits of Electric Muscle Stimulation

  • Electric muscle stimulation (EMS) can help treat musculoskeletal injuries or ailments.
  • EMS is a common and effective way to:
    • Relieve discomfort and pain
    • Reduce muscle spasms
    • Restore muscle tone
    • Rehabilitate parts of the body

The orthopedic specialists and physical therapists utilize EMS on those with the abovementioned issues to help restore function, mobility, and balance and reduce pain.

How Electric Stimulation Works

Electric stimulation works by attaching stick-on equipment to the skin and using the control unit to transmit currents to targeted muscle groups. The control unit is where the timer, sensory knobs, and other devices are located to produce the electric current. Two lead wires and two to four neurostimulation electrodes are the tools attached to the skin to transmit the current. The machine may cause several unique sensations when turned on and applied to a specific muscle group.

How Electric Stimulation Feels

Some patients report feeling pins and needles, muscle twitching, and/or a dull tingling. These sensations usually only last during the treatment, but patients will sometimes feel them up to 30 minutes after the therapy session.
