Today, the benefits of muscle stimulation are clinically proven and are now recognised by both physiotherapists and doctors working in the field of pain relief and rehabilitation across the world. Muscle stimulation is also used by athletes to enhance performance and expedite recovery. At Elevate we incorporate this technology into our programmes for both purposes.
Muscle stimulation is an artificial method of activating a muscle. It mimics the impulses sent from the brain and the muscle reacts accordingly. Our trained team can manipulate the frequency of the impulses to provide these benefits:
- Pain control
- Enhanced muscle recruitment and control of joint stability
- Reduced haematoma (bruising) and fluid (swelling)
- Increased muscle volume and strength
- Wound healing
- CV health, including raising VO2 max and delta efficiency
