E.M.S stands for Electrical Muscle Stimulation. E.M.S is predominately used by doctors and physical therapists to carry out muscle reeducation so as to prevent, or reduce, localized muscular hypotony or atrophy. Muscular atrophy is the decrease in size and wasting of muscle tissue. Muscles that lose their nerve supply can atrophy and simply waste away. It usually happens after surgeries or injuries. EMS has proven to be an effective means of preventing muscle atrophy.

Besides, E.M.S is also widely used on muscle exercise for perfect bodybuilding. Doctor and physician always consider EMS as a means of increasing blood flow to muscles, increasing range of motion, increasing muscle strength, as well as enhancing muscle endurance.
What' more, EMS could contribute to pain management in regards to muscle related pain, such as muscle injured after sport, spastic muscle, sore muscles, or tight muscles.

While using the EMS, stimulation pulses are applied over the small area of your muscle by a couple of self-adhesive electrodes. This pulse stimulates the nerve to send a signal, which transfer a message to the muscles to contract or relax. Electrodes are placed over the small area of the muscle group to be exercised. When the stimulation is applied through the pads, the signal finds its way to these areas and provokes the muscle to contract. So the correct positioning of the pads is important.

E.M.S treatment could be called self-controlled muscle action. That means you can control the muscle. Because during the treatment, under the stimulation of the pulse, your brain would generate a signal and pass down to the spinal cord through the nerve with all the target muscle that causes them relax or contract.
By applying an outside electrical source, Electrical muscle stimulation unit activate the nerves to send symbols to the target muscle and cause them relax and contract. This is carried out by using self-adhesive electrodes, which could conduct electrical current through your skin to the nerves over the position area.

As studies have shown that EMS can not only make muscle stronger, but also help to build a perfect body shape, it is allowed to use regularly with weight training for the purpose of making muscles grow and increasing muscular endurance. As a result, body temperature and metabolism would increase.
