In patients with very weak muscles we may recommend that a muscle stimulator be used. Neuromuscular stimulation is provided to the weakened muscle by an electrical device that produces a current that causes the muscle fibers to contract.The electrical stimulation is delivered via surface electrodes placed on the skin over the weak muscle. As the type of electrical stimulus used closely resembles that produced by our bodies nerves it is very comfortable
Muscle stimulators have evolved and improved significantly over the last 10 years. We like the design and ease of use of the “neurotech” range of stimulators and often prescribe them to patients. They have a range of electrode types depending on the muscle being treated
We provide all our clients who need Electrical Muscle Stimulation or EMS with the treatment. EMS is used by placing pads on or around the injured area and/or muscle, these pads send electrical pulses into the area.
