Emsculpt Neo is an incredible way to tone and strengthen muscles without needing to spend countless hours at the gym. This breakthrough treatment is at the top of people’s lists when it comes to achieving impressive contouring results. But can Emsculpt Neo also be used for physical therapy after surgery?

Physical Therapy After Surgery

Any major surgery that affects the joints, bones, or muscles can put a patient out of commission for several weeks. Back, hip, knee, and shoulder surgeries can greatly compromise mobility and strength.

This can make people feel impatient, frustrated, and helpless. Patients want to recover as soon as possible so they can resume activities like walking, swimming, playing sports, dancing, and exercising. Even lifting things around the house can be difficult.

The worst part is that if you don’t move after surgery, the muscles get weaker, heart and lung capacity decreases, and it gets even harder to get back to those everyday activities.

Physical therapy allows skilled medical professionals to help recovering patients slowly and safely restore their strength and range of motion. This involves modified exercises to strengthen the joints and muscles and improve flexibility.

Involuntary Muscle Contractions for a Faster Recovery

The modified exercises in physical therapy involve voluntary muscle contractions, which can be especially difficult after a major surgery. What if there were a way to bypass the body’s limitations by harnessing the power of involuntary muscle contractions?

With Emsculpt Neo, this is now a viable option. Emsculpt Neo uses HIFEM+ (High Frequency Electromagnetic) energy to stimulate involuntary muscle contractions at an advanced rate, typically 20,000 muscle contractions per treatment session. No gym time needed, just convenient sessions.

Emsculpt Neo can be used on the abdominal muscles, the buttocks muscles, the thighs, the calves, the upper legs, the biceps, and the triceps. Because of this, it may be a viable therapy option after surgical procedures involving the arms, legs, abdomen, or hips.

Emsculpt Neo can reduce downtime after surgery by a number of months. By building muscle, this treatment can be used to prevent muscle atrophy, which is a common issue after major surgeries that affect mobility. It can also improve a person’s core while they are unable to exercise as they normally could. A strong core is vital for mobility.

Caution Is Key

Physical therapy after surgery is an exciting new off-label use for Emsculpt Neo, but caution is key. If you’re interested in integrating Emsculpt Neo into your physical therapy treatment plan, it’s best to discuss it with your surgeon, your primary care physician, and your physical therapist. This will help ensure that it’s a safe option for you.

Note that Emsculpt is not safe for use in areas where metal implants are present. Additionally, it should not be used directly over wounds that are still healing.
