Muscle stimulation can be used in various situations, but the two most common types of electrical stimulation are Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS).
EMS therapy creates steady electric impulses that stimulate muscle contractions that can increase circulation and blood flow and improve muscle activation and strength. This is all helpful in muscle recovery.
TENS therapy works on nerves rather than muscles and is used to manage or block pain signals to the brain which can help with relaxation and circulation.
