What is NMES
Neuromuscular or electrical stimulation SNES uses a device that sends electrical impulses to the nerves. Such electrical stimulation effectively increases the strength and range of motion of the treated area.
The SNES it is often used to “re-train” or “re-educate” a muscle to function and to increase its strength after surgery or a period of inactivity.
The SNES has the proven ability to accelerate muscle healing, improve post-workout recovery, and even improve workout performance.
There is nothing constructive in these statements. There are many supporting studies that endorse the use of such devices.
