Stiffness and electrostimulation
All sportsmen and women are familiar with this problem and the pain it causes, which slows down activity and very often stops the athlete for 2 or 3 days. Non-athletes also discover it when they start a new physical activity or during a sudden effort without warming up, such as lifting a piece of furniture during a move.
But what can Sport-elec electrostimulation do in this case?
The phenomenon of muscle soreness comes from a physical activity that is too intense and that does not correspond to the level of the muscle being used, so the muscle exceeds its capacities and this will create micro lesions in the muscle. The anti-inflammatory reaction that the body will have to generate will be responsible for the creation of pain, the brain receives the signal of the lesions and causes the pain signal which limits the muscular capacity the time of the repair. The most obvious cases are muscular effort greater than the usual training, for example in cycling a brutal effort on a hill or in athletics a jump with a brutal landing that requires the muscle to be very strong. In skiing, the repetition of shocks caused by bumps on the track and the muscular effort that accompanies it will cause these lesions that will stretch the muscle fiber until it breaks. The force that the muscle can restore to accompany the movement of the athlete is exceeded and the muscle fiber tears with micro bleeding, we can talk about a red zone for the muscle as an engine in over speed close to failure.
Beyond the capacity of the athlete or the sportsman who exceeds his capacities during the effort, there can be a problem of warming up before the effort which will increase the risk of aches after the effort. The Sport-elec electrostimulation can act favorably to relieve the pains due to the aches but also to avoid them before the effort. Thus the warming up is essential so that this phenomenon does not occur, a cold muscle will tear more easily if it is solicited too strong at the beginning of race or of sporting training, the solution of sportelec electrostimulation is to make a session of warming up with one of the programs of electrostimulation developed especially by Sport-elec before the effort and then to continue on a physical training to 30 to 40 percent of its capacities before the departure.
Light stretching can also help the effort that follows. But if you have already made the effort that will cause pain, it is too late. If you are aware that you have made an effort that will cause you pain the next day, you can continue the sports session in slow motion.
For example, if you are a cyclist, do a few kilometers in slow motion, if you are a runner, you can walk a few kilometers without forcing yourself. It is important to understand that being aware of your muscles and what you need to do to preserve them, but also to improve their strength, their capacity for fast or slow action, will make you more efficient in your sport. This is also the interest of Sport-elec electrostimulation to help you in this awareness. If despite everything the following day and during the 3 days which follow the effort you feel the pains due to the aches then you will use your sportelec starting from the programs massage or anti pains, tens or massages.
Thanks to Sport-elec you can gain up to one day on the time of recovery of your capacities while decreasing the intensity of the pains. The specific currents used by Sport-elec will help to restructure the fiber while generating locally anti-pains that the brain will perceive as a signal of rehabilitation of the structure of the muscular fiber and will support the progressive reduction of the muscular pains. A precious help can be brought by Sport-elec in the case of the muscular pains following a too important effort during a sporting activity which one calls curbatures
