Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Dr. Joseph Grable is a chiropractic physician offering electrical muscle stimulation in the greater New Paltz, Highland, Gardiner, Rosendale, Newburgh, and Kingston NY area.

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. 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 action potential coming from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. The electrodes are generally pads that adhere to the skin. EMS is both a form of electrotherapy and of muscle training. It is cited by important authors as complementary technique for sport training, and there is published research on the results obtained. In the United States, EMS devices are regulated by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration. (FDA).
