Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the action of muscle contraction using electric impulses. EMS has received an increasing amount of attention in the last few years for many reasons: it can be utilized as a strength training tool for healthy subjects and athletes; it could be used as a rehabilitation and preventive tool for partially or totally immobilized patients; it could be utilized as a testing tool for evaluating the neural and/or muscular function in vivo; it could be used as a post-exercise recovery tool for athletes.
Therapeutic exercise refers to a range of physical activities that helps restore and build physical strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, and stability. The goal of the therapeutic exercise is returning an injured person to a pain-free, fully functioning state. Therapeutic exercise is managed by a physical therapist (PT) or chiropractor.
Vibracussor therapy is an exciting new treatment approach for muscle and ligament problems and related myofascial conditions. Used by many professional sports teams, Vibracussor effectively enhances rehabilitation and helps reduce pain and discomfort among their top players.
The Vibracussor delivers waves of percussive impulses deep into the tissues of the body. These percussion waves promote an increase in circulation and lymphatic flow and a decrease in muscle spasm. Vibracussor therapy is very effective for relaxing muscles. It can be used to warm up muscles and setting proper tonus prior to athletic events. It can be used following an event or exercise to flush muscles and minimize soreness.
