Our team offers electrical muscle stimulation in Fort Myers FL. Electrical Muscle Stimulation referred to as EMS, is a form of therapy used as muscle stimulation through electrical current to stimulate specific muscle contraction.

Some forms of electrical stimulation have combination effects.

What Does EMS Sensation Feel Like?

The electrical stimulation is a gentle tingling vibration sensation. EMS also contracts the muscle with each pulse on the area that the electrode is placed.

Furthermore, the impulses imitate the electrical signals normally produced from your nervous system, generating muscle contractions. In some cases, the body starts to get used to the muscle excitement causing the need to increase intensity for maximum benefit. For example, the treatment is between 10 to 20 minutes. Most patients like the feeling of their muscle contract and in the fact the treatment does not hurt.
