EMS Muscle stimulators are used to relieve pain, reduce spasms and edema, tonify weak muscles and assist the healing process. Known to ease muscle tension, stiffness in joints or back areas, and known for increasing motion restricted from disuse or atrophy, electronic muscle stimulation can also increase local blood circulation.
EMS Units run at intensities from 1 to 130 Mega Hertz. Where a tens unit is designed to help relieve certain types of chronic and acute pain by stimulating the nervous tissue, an EMS is designed to treat more of the muscle area than the nerves. This can help reduce swelling and muscle inflation which can have a negative effect as strained muscles can pull joints out of place.
