Yes, electrostimulation really works, it is a method approved by the scientific and medical world.
Electrostimulation is nowadays an integral part of the muscular rehabilitation and pain treatment protocols. It is a technique that has been used by physiotherapists for many years to guarantee an adequate muscular tone, even in particularly sedentary subjects and not very prone to motor activity.
The professional EMS is also used in aesthetic medicine in combination with outpatient treatments (mesotherapy, carboxytherapy, radiofrequency, focused ultrasound) or in post-surgery to intensify or consolidate its effects. Electrostimulation is not a miracle technique: it respects the functioning of our body.
The principle is very simple and faithfully reproduces the process activated during a voluntary muscle contraction. When we decide to contract a muscle, our brain sends a command in the form of an electrical signal that travels at high speed along the motor nerve fibers to the muscle, which reacts by contracting. With EMS, excitation is produced directly on the motor nerve by perfectly controlled electric impulses that guarantee its effectiveness, safety and comfort of use. In this way, the muscle is not able to notice the difference between a voluntary contraction (activated by the brain) and an electro-induced contraction: the obtained work is identical and it is natural!
