EMS Benefits (Electrostimulation)
EMS has several benefits, with electrostimulation training you can achieve significant results without the risk of injury; losing weight, gaining muscle, getting toned, treating injuries or eliminating stress are just some of the multiple benefits that EMS can offer you.
EMS has been applied for many years within the fields of physiotherapy and competitive sport. The intensity of the training comes from a gentle electrical stimulation, not from heavy loads (such as weights/dumbbells), therefore EMS training does not put additional stress on joints or ligaments.
It has been scientifically proven that EMS training achieves better results than conventional exercise and it can help to improve strength, toning of the body and resistance in several ways:
Main EMS benefits
EMS Benefits on injuries
One of the greatest benefits of Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is that it can be used to muscles that are weak or atrophied as a result of an injury or long periods of immobility. It works by stimulating the muscles, which makes them contract and relax, in a very similar way to normal physical activity. Electrical muscular.
Stimulation helps to develop strength in the affected area and it can be used to treat patients who are completely incapacitated by creating involuntary muscle contraction responses, therefore muscle tone is improved and also maintained without any real physical activity.
Many injuries linked to sport reduce the range of joint movement, especially in the shoulders, elbows and knees. EMS can be used on an impeded joint to increase range of motion and promote healing in the injured area by increasing blood flow and thus reducing inflammation.
Relieve chronic pain with electrostimulation
Many patients suggest that EMS helps them to relieve their chronic pain in joints and muscles, as well as their suffering due to stress and tension. This therapy is fantastic for relieving pain in patients with fibromyalgia and it can also be used to treat chronic headaches, muscle weakness and fatigue, as well as overall body aches.
Due to the restricted movement in tender and swollen joints, EMS therapy works well for arthritis sufferers by increasing range of motion in their joints and reducing pain and inflammation. EMS achieves this by channelling a low-frequency electrical current through muscle nerves and the connective tissue. Pain relief is achieved when the body begins secreting additional amounts of endorphins and other natural pain relievers to the affected area.
