Electrical Muscular Stimulation
The use of controlled electrical stimulation allows the muscle to restore its own motor control and facilitates joint stabilisation.
Electrical Muscular Stimulation is a technique that is based on the application of low-frequency electrical impulses, mimicking the potential of action from the central nervous system when a muscle contraction occurs.
Such currents can stimulate deep muscle fibresthat maybe injured or have lack of muscle activity, and can be directed towards the areas to be treated. In addition, this type of current also allow for an increase in muscle tone and volume as well as its endurance and strength.
It is important to highlight that a voluntary and intrinsic muscle activation is needed to obtain optimal recovery and maximum muscle performance. It is necessary to point out that the capacity and order of activation of the different types of muscle fibres will make a difference on the results obtained.
