Athletes use electro-stimulation to increase muscle mass, but it can also be useful for people who have suffered injuries, trauma or ligament ruptures and have been forced to take a long break from physical activity.
Professional electro-stimulators, along with the right training programme to strengthen muscles, help stimulate muscle fibres to recreate lost mass.
Muscle electro-stimulators are used to relieve pain and increase muscle mass. After an injury, electrotherapy can help re-educate the muscles to contract and is an important ally in restoring brain signals in patients with neurological damage.
In the field of aesthetic therapy, on the other hand, this equipment is mainly used to treat cellulite or to lose weight; however, there are no studies confirming the positive effects of this equipment for toning the buttocks or abdominals. These results can in fact be achieved through proper nutrition and constant physical training, but electro-stimulation cannot replace movement to strengthen muscles.
