Compex machines are a form of neuromuscular electronic simulations which when added to your rehabilitation programme can help to maximise your muscular effort by engaging a greater percentage of your muscle fibres.
Put very simply, the machine generates electrical impulses which can invoke a deeper and more sustained muscle contraction. It can be a highly effective treatment tool for speeding up post-operative recovery with less risk to surrounding joints/tendon and without the need for cardiovascular fatigue.
It has also been shown to be effective in helping with:
- Pain management
- Reducing muscle tension/li>
- Relaxing and reviving massage/li>
- Lymphatic drainage/li>
