The DMS – Deep Muscle Stimulator is a new therapeutic machine developed for those suffering from muscle pain.  The Deep Muscle Stimulator provides relief for some people suffering from chronic pain and restricted movement.

This is the only unit in the arena of modalities that can increase Range of Motion -ROM immediately for individuals.  The DMS provides soft tissue treatment with excellent results.

What does the DMS do?

Much of muscle pain stems from various conditions: strain, lactic acid build up, scar tissue, etc… The DMS uses percussion, mechanical vibrations that reach deep into the muscle tissue to stimulate proprioceptive functions.  The DMS can help reduce muscle tension and built-up stress by using light pressure, long strokes and circular motions on superficial layers of muscle.  The DMS also concentrates on general or local muscle spasms.  It increases muscle metabolism and increase the lactic acid cycle to relieve pain.  Deep, rapid, short-duration percussion is the key to the elimination of pain.

By using firm but gentle pressure the DMS can improve circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create mental and physical relaxation.  It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable improving flexibility and joint mobility.  The DMS also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time.  That reduces stress, both emotional and physical.

The purpose of using the DMS on an athlete is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity.  Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to over-exertion and/or overuse, DMS can break them down quickly and effectively.  The DMS will help prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries.  The DMS can help prevent those nagging injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether a person is a 5-day a week tennis player or a once-a-week jogger.

DMS may facilitate the member with the benefits of:

  • Increased Circulation
  • Reduced Pain
  • Faster Rehabilitation from Injury
  • Increased Lymphatic Flow
  • Break Up of Muscular Scar Tissue
  • Reduced Lactic Acid Build Up
  • Tissue Regeneration
  • Soft & Active Tissue Release

**Contraindications – Do not use the DMS on or over the eyes, teeth, breast implants, cancerous cells, reproductive organs, electrical devices or any prosthesis, screws or plates.  For a diabetic patient, only work on the bottom of their feet and their hands.  Do not apply the DMS on any bone fractures.  If pain is persistent, stop immediately and consult a doctor.

Do not use the DMS on anyone under the age of sixteen.  This is because the growth plates (epiphyseal) are highly vascular.  Do not use the DMS on any woman that is pregnant.  Do not use in water or around water.
