Benefit 3: EMS involves the deep muscles
Structurally and functionally intact muscles are success factors for a healthy back. Well-developed deep muscles are crucial for smooth interaction between back structures and core muscles. This is because it’s the deep, local muscles that provide stabilisation for the spine, joints and intervertebral discs and in turn enable the body’s physiological movements. These muscles are located close to the bone.
Training these deep muscles by consciously tensing them is difficult or even impossible. The electrical impulses, on the other hand, stimulate all skeletal muscles and make them contract, regardless of whether the muscles are large or small, superficial or deep inside the body.
This depth effect makes EMS the ideal method for combating back pain. It’s not without reason that EMS is also successfully used in medicine to eliminate problems such as incontinence, as electrical impulses can be used to specifically strengthen the deep pelvic floor muscles and thus improve pelvic floor function.
Electrical stimulation has been used in sports medicine, physiotherapy and rehabilitation for several decades. The effect of EMS is scientifically recognised. Owing to its outstanding effects on muscle development, EMS is also becoming increasingly popular as a full-body training method.
