Electro Muscle Stimulation – A Transformed Life under Dr. Grant

If you’ve been in an accident or are suffering from an injury, you may need electro muscle stimulation in order to recover, this a therapy that induces muscle contraction by using the help of electrical stimulation.

Dr. Grant uses this popular option mainly for athletes, rehabilitation patients and as a prevention therapy for partially or fully immobilized patients. It is both a therapeutic as well as a training strategy.

Use of Electro Muscle Stimulation – How can Dr. Grant help You?

There are two popular purposes for which Dr. Grant adopts electro muscle stimulation. The first is for weight loss. For this purpose, the electro muscle stimulation triggers calorie burning which when coupled with adequate exercise, can really enhance the results of your weight loss.

Electro muscle stimulation is very important for morbidly obese people. Dr. Grant enables them to experience a freer joint movement with this treatment. It can eventually aid you in performing adequate exercise later on.

Electro muscle stimulation makes your body ready for physical activity and does a better job than the normal warm up exercises. Additionally, electro muscle stimulation is also used for physiotherapy, particularly for rehabilitative reasons and objects. It helps to prevent muscle atrophy, which is very crucial for paralyzed patients or for those who have been in a coma for a long time.

Dr. Grant can use it to target in a specific way, which means personalizing it for the needs of each patient.

Effects of Electro Muscle Stimulation

Enhanced neural and muscular activity and mobility is the most well-reported effect of electro muscle stimulation. It improves the training of muscle fibers. However, it is also true that all therapists do not achieve similar results every time. This is because different muscle fibers can be adapted differently to varying powers of electro muscle stimulation.

The therapy is inducted via belt-like devices which contain the electro muscle stimulation apparatus, whose power can be varied accordingly. In some pop cultures, they are also referred as sauna belts, because they combine diathermy along with electro muscle stimulation. Prices of these devices vary from 100 to 250 dollars.

It is better to go for a professional treatment under someone like Dr. Grant so you can get the best results.

Side Effects of Electro Muscle Stimulation

Skin irritation under the electrodes and additional burns may occur sometimes, says Dr. Grant. You may experience hypersensitivity towards the electrical conductive gel. Electro muscle stimulation may also trigger painful headaches if applied to areas near the head, eyes and the face in general.

Electro muscle stimulation devices should be used only with the service provider’s electrodes and accessories! If more than one person is using the same electro muscle stimulation device, then it is recommended that every person should use their personal electrodes. Sharing of electrodes is not recommended.

Electro muscle stimulation can help treat everything from muscular and skeletal injuries, back problems, knee pains to pain in the hip joints and ankles. It’s helpful to drive out swelling, increase oxygen supply to the area and help tone your muscles at the same time.
