Electrical Muscle Stimulation
If your physician determines that EMS can help your condition, we will place electrode pads on specific places on the skin to stimulate the natural muscle rehabilitation and recovery processes with electrical pulses that mimic those of your central nervous system.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared many electrical muscle stimulators for prescription use in treating medical conditions. Keep in mind, the primary use of these devices is to help muscles recover impaired function due to a medical condition, not to increase muscle size enough to impact appearance.
EMS devices are often used for patients who require:
- Relaxation of muscles
- Muscle re-education
- Increase in muscular range of motion
- Prevention of muscle atrophy (decrease in mass)
Commonly Treated Conditions
- Muscle Spasms
- Range Of Motion Issues
- Injury and Surgery Rehabilitation
