Before we go any further let’s first outline specifically actually what is Muscle Atrophy, and how it is caused. Muscle atrophy, or “Wasting,” is a disease which causes a significant decrease in muscle mass and strength. This can be associated with injury, disease, and sedentary lifestyles.
Muscle Atrophy can be painful and life altering as it prevents normal daily activity. This decrease in strength has a negative impact on the quality of life as victims of muscle atrophy will be unable to perform certain day to day tasks as well as have a higher risk of further injury.
Muscle Atrophy can be measured through the use of CT Scans, pain, or loss of weight.
For years experts have looked for effective ways to cure and prevent muscle atrophy. Whether through the use of chemical enhancers, such as anabolic steroids or through physical therapy, Doctors and Scientists have repeatedly turned to the stimulation effects of EMS therapy from TENS units in order to prevent and treat atrophy. Through the use of Electrical Muscle stimulation, doctors are able to reverse and prevent muscle atrophy by stimulating the muscles without the need for adverse stress and discomfort.
More often than not, muscle atrophy is associated with intense pain and stiffness. Our StimRx TENS therapy provides instant pain relief, as gentle electrical pulses inhibit the transmission of pain to the brain, as well as increase the body’s natural production of pain fighting endorphins.
Moreover, the increased blood flow associated with TENS therapy will also help to remove excess build up of waste in the muscle. This means faster recovery with less downtime.
