Electrostimulation therapy is a modality involving sending of electrical impulses to the muscle in order to elicit its contraction. As a matter of fact, an electrical field is generated between the electrodes and this triggers a contraction of the muscle subjected to the stimulus delivered by the electrostimulator. Electrostimulation can be used for muscular training and injury prevention or rehabilitation.

 

TENS therapy is one of the most popular methods of electrostimulation for pain relief purposes in physiotherapy. TENS is used to treat a wide range of conditions including for example acute, chronic and muscular pain and pain related to pregnancy and post-surgical events.  

 

EMS therapy is used mainly for sport and rehabilitation purposes. The electrical muscle stimulation allows to elicit muscle contraction by delivering electrical impulses to the muscles through electrodes. In addition to its primary training goals, EMS can be also used for aesthetic purposes, such as draining, anti-cellulite and firming effects. Specific programmes based on EMS electrotherapy are devised for the prevention of muscle atrophy.

MAIN DIFFERENCES OF TENS/EMS THERAPIES

Indications for TENS - Acts on muscle motor nerves (elicits muscle contraction):

  • Relief from pain, including chronic pain
  • Adjunctive treatment for post-trauma and post-surgical acute pain

 

Indications for EMS - Acts on sensory nerves (changes pain perception):

  • Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy
  • Relaxation of muscles spasms
  • Increase in blood circulation
  • Improvement of muscle functions (strength and endurance)
  • Muscle re-education
  • Prevention of venous thrombosis

FOR WHICH TREATMENTS MAY BE USED A TENS?

  • Achilles tendon pain / Heel pain
  • Angina pectoris
  • Polyarthritis
  • Stump pain
  • Phantom limb pain
  • Osteoarthritis: eg. gonoarthrosis, coxarthrosis
  • Dysmenorrhea
  • Radial epicondylitis
  • Ulnar epicondylitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Ankle pain
  • Migraine
  • Headache
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Polyneuropathy
  • Cervical pain
  • Sciatic pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Healing wounds
