What is Electrical Muscle Stimulation in Physical Therapy?

There are many treatments that your therapist may use to help you recover from an injury and get you back to your chosen lifestyle in the most effective way possible. EMS is one of the ways that has been popular but it will not recognize for a long time.

First of all, we should know what is Electrical Muscle Stimulation?

EMS is a safe and effective way used to treat a variety of conditions. Every unit and modes of delivery can vary.  The standard electrical stimulation device utilizes self-adhesive electrodes placed around the target treatment area on the body. These electrodes connected via wire leads to the unit through which electric current can pass and interact with sensory and motor nerves.

And now the time to know the usage of EMS in physical therapy.

There are several EMS modes that uses different types of currents to stimulate different nerves in specific ways. These include Transuctaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), interferential, pre-modulated, Russian, and symmetrical or asymmetrical bi-phasic. Don’t let the words confuse you, though. Your physical therapist will decide the right one to meet your unique needs.

Our Fullcircle EMS fitness studio utilizes electrical stimulation in order to provide a variety of beneficial healing effects, including:

  • Pain control and reduction
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Decrease weight gain
  • Improve range of motion
  • Reduce muscle spasm
  • Provide biofeedback
  • Improve motor coordination
  • Provide neuromuscular re-education
  • Prevent or reverse muscle atrophy

Does the Ems training hurts?

Of course NO! The intensity of the electrical muscle stimulation easily modified and will only be as much as the client can tolerate. In the case when used for muscle strengthening, the intensity level can be high and little uncomfortable, but it should not cause pain.

What should I expect during a training session?

Our Clients comfort, safety and dignity are the number one priority. At your initial evaluation, expect to take a thorough client history and physical examination. If your physical therapist decides that electrical stimulation is an appropriate part of your plan of care, he or she will first educate you about the specific modality. You will be asked to sit or lie in a comfortable position, your skin in the target treatment area will clean and prepped, and your trainer will guide you step-by-step through the entire training.
