What is Emsculpt

Emsculpt is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that focuses on body contouring. What this means is that the process simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle during treatment. This is accomplished through the use of electromagnetic technology which creates supramaximal contractions. Emsculpt is also a viable treatment option for those who wish to shape their back, arms, abdominal region, and/or buttocks and may also relieve pain in those areas.

Emsculpt for Back Pain

At Progressive Pain and Rehabilitation, we treat all sorts of maladies but focus our efforts specifically on treating back pain. Whether your back pain is located in the middle, lower, or cervical back; Emsculpt can help.

The procedure itself is focused on building muscles through contractions to help patients with their day-to-day back pain; no matter how trivial or painful. This goes doubly-so for persons who are used to doing daily activities which put a strain on their back; whether it be heavy-lifting or construction work.

Emsculpt is also a very good means of helping older people deal with their back pain as well. Emsculpt helps by strengthening the muscles in the back so that you can carry on in your daily life without worrying or suffering through constant back aches and pains.

During the Procedure

Each session takes around 30 minutes and is typically 4 sessions across 4 weeks. None of the sessions requires the use of anesthetic or sedatives and the patient will typically be lying on their side or back. The Emsculpt machine will be placed on the target area on the patient’s back before beginning to emit its electromagnetic waves. These waves cause contractions on the target site which may feel mildly discomforting and strange to the patient but will cause no actual pain. During treatment, the muscles in the target area will have contracted around 200,000 times; a feat that would take thousands of hours in the gym to replicate. This not only strengthens the muscles in the area but also destroys neighboring fat cells as well. The intensity of these contractions can also be fine-tuned to fit the specific needs of each patient.

Side Effects and Downtime

Being a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure; Emsculpt carries no side effects. Some small number of patients may experience soreness or redness after the treatment; however, these effects are temporary and subside within 24 hours.

There is very little downtime needed after the procedure and patients can resume their daily activities without concern. Patients should; however, be cautious when conducting strenuous activity near the targeted treatment site for their back.
