Electrical Muscle Stimulation (Chiropractic)
Body Area: Back / Spine

Electrical Muscle Stimulation is a way to provoke muscle contraction by means of electric stimulus. The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes on the skin in direct proximity to the muscles to be stimulated. The impulses mimic the central nervous system, initiating the contracting of the muscles. EMS is both electrotherapy and muscle training.
