Injury and (chronic) back pain Recovery
Back pains, torn tendons and rehabilitation are just a couple of examples of our medical recovery program. EMS has been advised and used for years by physiotherapists to help their patients recover.
EMS will stimulate the stabilising muscles in your body. This helps you improve your posture and nurture your medical issue back to health. Medical EMS trainees are always very excited to report the decrease in pain from their injury.
Post Pregnancy Recovery
Carrying a baby around and bending over a cot, while weakened by pregnancy hormones can result in body aches and pains. EMS helps strengthen the core, pelvic floor muscles and it can also help lose the additional weight you may have gained. Our studio is baby and child friendly and we are happy to help look after the little one during your 20 minute workout.
aged Over 60's Health & Fitness
As owners of the studio, we are passionate to bring EMS to the medical recovery public of the Sunshine Coast as we have seen the benefits for seniors personal and up close. Both our parents decided to use EMS as they have been dealing with several chronic health issues (old age, partial paralysis, recovery from bilateral hip replacement surgery and cancer recovery), and have improved greatly.
BACKPAIN STUDIES – chronic back pain
THE BEST REMEDY AGAINST BACK PAIN ARE STRONG BACK AND CORE MUSCLES TO SUPPORT AND STABILISE THE SPINE.
IF ALL MUSCLES ARE WELL TRAINED, MAKING THE BODY BALANCED, THE LOAD AND WEAR OF THE VERTEBRAL JOINTS IS CONSIDERABLY LESS.
88% of participants significantly reduced their level of back pain
After using EMS for 2 weeks the intensity of the pain fell by 60% and 87% after 6 weeks
40% of participants had chronic back pain before beginning training, after 6 weeks this was just 9%. In 44% of the chronic patients the pain completely dissapeared.
Certain medical conditions are known to be contraindications and EMS training is not recommended for the following conditions: (1) pregnancy; (2) pacemaker or other electrical implants; (3) acute illness, such as fever, viral infections or acute inflammatory processes. Medical consent might be necessary for some physical conditions and these should be discussed with your personal trainer before any training commences.
