Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS)
What is the Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS) ?
The Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS) uses percussion, mechanical vibrations that reach deep into the muscle tissue to stimulate proprioceptive functions. Much of muscle pain stems from various conditions, strain, lactic acid build up, scar tissue, etc… No other device on the market matches the effectiveness of the DMS.
DMS provides deep muscle tissue with kinetic forms of percussion and concussion vibration, which in turn facilitates the patient or athlete with the benefits of:
The DMS also concentrates on general or local muscle spasms. It increases muscle metabolism and increases the lactic acid cycle to relieve pain. Deep, rapid, short-duration percussion is the key to the elimination of pain. The DMS can be used in effective management of acute and chronic pain, not exclusive to, but including migraine headaches, sciatica, TMJ, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, bursitis, edema, myofacial pain and frozen joints.
The DMS is known to increase the circulation of blood and flow of lymph. The stimulation of nerve receptors causes the blood vessels to dilate, which also facilitates blood flow.
DMS can help loosen contracted, shortened muscles and can stimulate weak, flaccid muscles. This muscle “balancing” can help posture and promote more efficient movement. DMS is also being used for Integrated Manual Therapy and Musculoskeletal Dysfunction.
Doing more exercise and training, in the long run, strengthens muscle and improves conditioning. The DMS provides a gentle stretching action to both muscles and connective tissues that surround parts of the body, helping keep these tissues elastic.
DMS also aids recovery from soft tissue injuries such as sprains and strains by accelerating efficient circulation in the injured areas and appropriate stimulation of the healing tissues.
