Excellent results are commonly obtained regarding muscle growth and preservation in therapeutic areas, such as after an injury or operation. Is it, however, important that there is no acute inflammation and that the healing process is fully completed.
A missing stimulation of the musculature causes it to first weaken and then rapidly degrade. Consequently, extensive rehabilitation and training periods have to be completed by patients. EMS training is an effective strength training which keeps joint-load to a minimum. It can therefore actively counteract the muscle degradation process.
Another important EMS therapy application regards the treatment of back pain. The advantages here lie in the simplicity of the EMS training exercises, which result in a stable muscle corset. The weak, passive structures of the spine are stabilised via certain static and dynamic movements, which can be integrated into the EMS training. This causes stimulation of the surrounding musculature as well as the lower muscle layers, and resultantly a gentle increase in strength is achieved in a short period of time.
