The Compex is a form or Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) that we utilize to help in a range of settings such as post operative, acute, and long-term injuries. EMS is used to aid in muscular development to facilitate strength or endurance. One of the benefits are that we can work a muscle without loading a joint thus increasing the muscle work and load causing strength, endurance and contraction improvements in a safe manner. EMS works by sending signals to a motor neuron through pads placed on a muscle that helps the muscle contract. This is just like how the brain sends a muscle a signal to contract and the muscle doesn't know the difference between a signal from the brain or the EMS. Once the signal reaches the muscle, the terminal motor neurons fire and by doing so they stimulate muscle fibres, causing them to contract. We use them also in conjunction with your workout to further facilitate strength and endurance benefits.

After stopping, it’s generally OK but the following day, there’s a constant dull ache. I’ve rested for a few days but the problem is still there? It’s really frustrating as it’s preventing me from running and I don’t know why it’s hurting. Any suggestions?? What it is and The Fix- follow the link Mens Running and Hip injuries
