LEG CRAMPS AND MUSCLE SPASMS
A leg cramp is the involuntary spasm of the lower leg, or calf muscles. Anyone can experience leg cramps. Leg cramps most often affect people engaged in running sports. Leg cramps also affect pregnant women due to the changes in serum calcium, an electrolyte involved in muscle contraction. Leg cramps can be due to a biochemical malfunction of muscle contraction, or they can be a neurological refexive response to trauma or excessive load. Leg cramps may also be related to insufficient oxygen to the leg muscles (hypoxia).
Endermotherapy, or Endermo Sport is a soft tissue mobilization treatment that is helpful in increasing blood and lymph circulation, softening scar tissue, and stretching contracted fibers such as those involved with leg cramps, shin splints, and other muscle spasm conditions. It is done using a tecnologically advance machine called the LPG Keymodule.
With its combination of powerful vacuum suction and variable speed and direction rollers, the CelluM6 mobilizes contracted, reparative tissue, making it more flexible and functional. Patients include athletes desiring faster recovery times from delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), people who suffer from leg cramps and muscle spasms, individuals experiencing poor skin circulation,and pre and post liposuction clients.
Patients wear a nylon suit specially designed for endermotherapy treatment. The suit allows the treatment head to engage the skin without causing chafing. The sensation feels like a negative-pressure massage, applied in a wave-like pattern and is quite relaxing. Sessions are 20-40 minutes, depending on the areas treated.
