Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) Therapy, or e-stim, offers a quick solution for instant pain relief if you’re experiencing fatigue, soreness, inflammation, swelling, or other symptoms affecting any of your muscles. With little to no recovery time needed, many patients turn to Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy to find pain relief, improve mobility, and benefit overall health. If you are suffering from muscle pain from a physical injury or medical condition, you may benefit from Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy to treat your symptoms and restore your mobility.
Benefits Of Electrical Muscle Stimulation
EMS improves many injuries by providing the following benefits:
- Increases muscle growth, strength, and performance
- Reduces muscle soreness and relaxes muscles
- Reduces pain, swelling, and inflammation
- Stops muscle degeneration
- Increases local blood circulation
How Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy Works
During EMS, electrodes are connected to a device responsible for producing the gentle electric currents you’ll feel throughout the treatment. These electric currents are intended to stimulate the motor nerves within your muscles, stimulating these nerves to cause your muscle to contract.
As the muscles contract, your body will release endorphins to reduce pain and increase relaxation. This treatment promotes healing by improving circulation, as electric stimulation enhances blood flow to the affected area. This is beneficial in reversing inflammation or swelling caused by an injury or a medical condition, such as osteoarthritis.
If you are interested in EMS, we can help determine if you are a good candidate for this therapy with a consultation at our San Diego clinic.
