Ease Your Pain Naturally With The Muscle Stimulator Therapy
Muscle stimulation therapy, called muscle stimulation (EMS) or neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), involves using controlled currents to induce targeted muscle contractions. By applying pads to muscle groups, the currents prompt the muscles to contract and relax in a therapeutic manner.
This therapy method is recognized as a beneficial approach in physiotherapy. It aids in reducing muscle spasms, enhancing blood circulation, alleviating pain, boosting strength and facilitating recovery from injuries.
At Pain Free India Physiotherapy, we harness the benefits of muscle stimulation to assist our patients in managing pain and improving muscle function and strength.
As leaders in delivering Muscle Stimulation Therapy at Pain Free India Physiotherapy, we develop personalized EMS treatment plans tailored to address conditions such as;
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Knee pain
- Neuropathic pain
- Sprains and strains
- Post-surgical recovery
- Post-injury rehabilitation
- Post-surgical muscle atrophy
- Muscle paralysis/paresis
How Muscle Stimulator Therapy Works
During EMS sessions, our physiotherapists apply electrode pads to the affected muscle groups during EMS sessions. These pads deliver controlled electrical currents that cause the muscles to contract and relax in a therapeutic pattern. This induces the following beneficial effects:
- Reduced muscle spasms and stiffness
- Improved blood flow and oxygenation
- Pain relief from the release of endorphins
- Enhanced muscle strength and function
- Accelerated injury recovery and rehabilitation
The electrical frequency and intensity are adjustable to match specific needs. Sessions are optimised to target precise muscle groups and pain points. Patients typically experience painless muscle contractions during muscle stimulator therapy.
Regular EMS treatment as part of physiotherapy helps alleviate both acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. It also aids in muscle re-education, toning, and strengthening. Muscle stimulator therapy is a safe, non-invasive and highly effective adjunct to other treatment modalities.

Frequently Asked Questions
- How does muscle stimulator therapy work?
It uses electrical currents to cause controlled muscle contractions. This improves blood flow, releases endorphins, enhances muscle function and more.
- What conditions can it treat?
EMS can help with chronic pain, neuropathic pain, acute injuries, post-surgical recovery, muscle weakness, paralysis, etc.
- Is muscle stimulator therapy safe?
Yes, it is completely safe when appropriately administered by trained physiotherapists. The currents are controlled and therapeutic.
- What does it feel like?
Patients feel painless muscle contractions and relaxations through the electrode pads. Intensity is adjusted for comfort and efficacy.
- How many sessions are required?
The number varies based on the specific condition. Acute injuries may need 6-10 sessions, while chronic issues require 12+ sessions.
- Are there any side effects?
When done correctly with controlled settings, EMS has no significant side effects. Mild skin irritation can sometimes occur.
- Can it help strengthen weak muscles?
Muscle stimulator therapy is very effective for strengthening weak or atrophied muscles after injury, paralysis, surgery, etc.
- Can EMS replace exercise?
No, it complements exercise programs but cannot fully replace voluntary muscle activation through exercise.
- Can anyone undergo muscle stimulator therapy?
It is generally safe, but certain conditions, like pacemakers, may preclude its use. Consult your therapist if you have any medical devices implanted.
- Does insurance cover muscle stimulator therapy?
Many major health insurance providers cover EMS therapy treatment costs. Check your specific policy’s coverage details.
