Rehabilitation and Repair of Hamstring Injuries with EMSculpt NEO

 Have you or anyone in your athletic circle ever suffered from a hamstring injury? Intense discomfort and long rehabilitation periods can often tax your patience. Nevertheless, medical and technological advancements have presented us with a revolutionary solution, the EMSculpt NEO. This innovative procedure can speed up the recovery process of hamstring injuries. Let's delve into this fascinating science!

Understanding Hamstring Injuries

Hamstring injuries are common among athletes and physically active individuals. These injuries involve a strain, pull, or a complete tear in one or more of the three muscles located at the back of your thigh – biceps femoris, semitendinosus, and semimembranosus.

What is EMSculpt NEO?

EmSculpt NEO is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment renowned for reducing fat and building muscle mass. Traditionally, it found primary use in sculpting abs, buttocks, arms, and calves. However, today, many options exist for its application, including hamstring injury rehabilitation.

By utilizing high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM), EMSculpt NEO elicits supramaximal contractions that would be impossible to achieve during regular exercise. The pain associated with a strained hamstring muscle may prevent someone from strengthening it properly. The EMSculpt NEO allows you to strengthen your muscles without the usual pain and risk of reinjury that comes with strength exercise.

The application of HIFEM on the hamstrings triggers muscle adaptation, resulting in increased muscle mass and strength.

EMSculpt NEO: An Innovative Approach to Hamstring Rehabilitation

Muscle Strengthening

EMSCulpt NEO not only targets the fat tissues in your body but is also a powerful tool for muscle development and strengthening. A study confirmed that EMSculpt NEO increased muscle mass by 25% in its patients after a few sessions. For hamstring injuries, focused strengthening of the hamstring muscle through these supramaximal contractions facilitates faster recovery and helps prevent future injuries.

Increased Blood Flow

EMSCulpt NEO not only accelerates muscle development but it also encourages blood flow to injured areas of your body. Increased blood flow promotes quicker healing of damaged tissues, reduces inflammation, and accelerates recovery time.

Safe and Non-Invasive

EMSCulpt NEO provides a non-invasive procedure with no associated downtime. The treatment is virtually pain-free, and patients can resume their daily activities immediately after their sessions.

Tailored Treatment

Each EMSculpt NEO treatment is unique and tailored to meet the patient's specific needs. In hamstring injury rehabilitation, the device can be set to stimulate the muscles in the right way, thus reducing the risk of additional strains on your body.

Final Thoughts

EMSCulpt NEO offers a promising avenue for expedited rehabilitation and recovery from hamstring injuries. It effectively combines the dual functions of muscle strengthening and enhanced blood flow to the region, aiding in quicker healing, increased strength, and improved injury preventions.

If you are in the New York City area, consider consulting with Dr. John W Phelts to see if EMSculpt NEO would be appropriate for your needs.  He will provide the best advice based on your individual needs and ensure the most effective and safest rehabilitation process. Indeed, EMSculpt NEO is a potential game-changer in the field of sports medicine and physical rehabilitation.
