How Electric Muscle Stimulation works

How Electric Muscle Stimulation works:
Electric Muscle Stimulation is an internationally accepted and proven way of treating
muscle injuries. It works by sending Electric pulses to the muscle needing treatment;
this causes the muscle to exercise passively. Electric Muscle Stimulators (EMS)
Stimulate, Re-educate and Massage. Electric Muscle Stimulation is basically done by
stimulating some areas of the body. For this purpose, an Electric stimulation device is
used – electrode pads are placed directly on the body area(s) that need to be
stimulated. By dialing the voltage, you can pick different pressure on the muscles, that
create various medical and cosmetic effects.

The low voltage is usually done on smaller, involuntary muscle groups, which cannot be
stimulated in other ways. The low voltage also stimulates the brain, which starts sending
impulses through the involuntary muscles, thus stimulating them as well.

Medical conditions treated by Muscle Stimulation include: Muscle Spasms, Long-term
Disuse after Fracture or Prolonged Bed Rest, Strengthening for Joint or Muscle Injury,
Immobilized Limbs, Atrophy Prevention, Bell’s Palsy, Stress Incontinence, Muscle
Weakness, Improving Muscle Tone, Muscle Spasticity following a Stroke, and Personal
Fitness Training.

How Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation works:
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive, drug free
method of controlling pain. TENS Units use tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin
to nerves to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or
eliminating the pain, allowing for a return to normal activity. In many people, the
reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the actual period of stimulation
(sometimes as much as three to four times longer). In others, pain is modified while
stimulation actually occurs. Unit overrides the pain signal to the brain by sending a
comfortable Electric impulse. When the TENS Unit overrides the pain signal, it “tricks”
the brain into thinking there is NO PAIN. This produces Fast and Rapid Pain Relief,
usually within a minute or two. You can control and customize the intensity, pulse rate,
and pulse width to “experiment” and find the best setting for your pain relief.
