Recovering from Groin/Adductor Strains: How EMSculpt NEO Can Help

When it comes to recovering from a groin or adductor strain, various methods can be utilized to promote healing and regain mobility. One cutting-edge option that has gained popularity is the EMSculpt NEO, which offers a non-invasive treatment to help improve muscle strength and function.

In this blog post, we will explore the role of EMSculpt NEO in the rehabilitation process for individuals dealing with a groin or adductor strain. We will also discuss the benefits of using this innovative technology to get back on track more efficiently.

Understanding Groin/Adductor Strains

The groin and adductor muscles are a group of five muscles in the inner thigh that play a crucial role in movements like walking, running, and jumping. A groin or adductor strain occurs when these muscles are stretched beyond their normal range, resulting in a tear. This type of injury can range in severity from a mild strain to a complete tear and can be extremely painful and debilitating.

Recovering from a groin or adductor strain typically involves resting, icing, compression, and elevation (RICE), followed by gentle stretching, strengthening exercises, and physical therapy to rebuild strength and functionality.

Enter EMSculpt NEO

The EMSculpt NEO is an innovative device that has been making waves in the world of fitness and rehabilitation. This FDA-cleared^1^ technology combines High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology with Radio Frequency (RF) heating, both of which work in synergy to improve muscle contraction and promote fat loss in targeted areas. The results are increased muscle strength and a significant reduction in adipose tissue.

How EMSculpt NEO Aids in Rehabilitation

When it comes to recovering from a groin or adductor strain, the EMSculpt NEO can be a useful addition to the traditional rehabilitation regimen. The treatment works by inducing thousands of muscle contractions per session, which can help rehabilitate injured muscles in the following ways:

  1. Improved muscle strength: The contractions induced by EMSculpt NEO can help increase muscle strength in the targeted area, rehabilitating the weakened muscles caused by a strain^2^.

  2. Restoring muscle functionality: The EMSculpt NEO stimulates deep, intense muscle contractions, which can help restore the full range of motion and functionality in the injured area.

  3. Promoting blood flow: The treatment encourages blood flow to the targeted area, which may help reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and accelerate the healing process^3^.

  4. Enhancing rehabilitation efficiency: Utilizing EMSculpt NEO in conjunction with other rehabilitation techniques like stretching and physical therapy can potentially shorten recovery time and improve overall results.


This combination of HIFEM and RF technology in EMSculpt NEO allows for targeted muscle strengthening and fat reduction, essential factors in the rehabilitation process of adductor/groin injuries.  At Phelts Chiropractic PC, Dr. John Phelts uses the EMSculpt NEO to help people with adductor/groin injuries recover and get back to their usual daily activities—which may be running marathons, playing sports or squatting heavy weights.

A groin or adductor strain can be a painful and frustrating injury to deal with, but incorporating a cutting-edge treatment like EMSculpt NEO into your recovery plan can provide significant benefits. By improving muscle strength, restoring functionality, and promoting blood flow, EMSculpt NEO increases the chances of a full and efficient recovery.
