The cause of back pain
The cause of back pain can be multifaceted. In most cases, the reason for the pain cannot even be defined. However, common reasons include the following:
- Muscle tension and blockages
- Excess weight
- Lack of exercise
- Poor posture
Back pain can come in different forms and manifest itself in different ways. Often, the ailment comes on especially in the morning after getting up or when spending a long time sitting down. Especially in times of home office or overtime in front of the laptop, back pain is a strongly increasing complaint of society. But what exactly is the role of EMS training in relation to back pain? We explain it to you.
Why does EMS training help with back pain?
It is helpful to take a closer look behind the scenes. Does EMS training really help with back pain and if so, what is the cause behind it? The clear answer is. Yes, EMS is a suitable way to not only combat your back pain, but also to prevent it in the future. The reason behind this can be found in the muscle building that is initiated by the electrical impulses. Through EMS training you build up strong back muscles. Your muscles are activated and through regular training your back muscles become more and more formed. This is the basis for avoiding future pain.
Studies on EMS and back pain
EMS training as an effective method against back pain also has a scientific basis. This not only gives a closer look at the effect of the training, but also strengthens the reasons for regularly incorporating EMS training into everyday life. A look at the state of science shows that a large number of studies prove the effectiveness of the training in relation to back pain. One example is provided by the University of Bayreuth, which examined EMS training more closely in test subjects with back pain.
The results are impressive. For more than 80 percent of the participants, the pain in the back area could be reduced by regular EMS training. The study lasted a total of six weeks and, in addition to reducing back pain, also aimed to improve endurance in everyday life and reduce chronic pain. Studies like this show that incorporating EMS training into everyday life can not only combat back pain, but can also have a preventative effect at the same time and stabilise the muscles in the long term. At the end of the six weeks, 30 percent of the participants said they no longer felt any pain in their lower back.

Support your EMS training in everyday life
EMS training for the back is particularly effective with a little support in everyday life.

Even when sitting, you tend to slouch, which can lead to back pain and tension in the muscles. Therefore, one should always try to keep a straight back and avoid bad postures.
A general lack of exercise can also lead to suffering in the back. Even short walks or stretching exercises that you can integrate into your everyday life in addition to the already effective EMS exercises can strengthen your back.
