Physical exercise is crucial for building strength. However, the benefits of exercise can widen when used alongside Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), also referred to as E-stim.
EMS is widely used for recovery, rehabilitation, pain relief and muscle training. It helps elite athletes to boost their muscle strength by recruiting more muscle fibres than a regular warm-up or workout. It also helps individuals who are recovering from injuries by accelerating their recovery process and addressing a range of painful symptoms.
E-stim devices are typically prescription-only and regulated by professionals such as physical therapists, orthopedists or sports medicine physicians. However, there are also some over-the-counter e-stim devices available for home use.
How does EMS work?
During an EMS treatment, a professional therapist applies electrode pads on the client’s skin. The device generates electric impulses that stimulate muscle fibres to contract. The main purpose of EMS therapy is to imitate what happens in the body when we voluntarily contract and release a muscle several times in a row.
This process can help strengthen and repair tissue, particularly muscles that become weak or dormant after an injury or illness. It also helps to increase blood flow as well as nutrient distribution.
