I posted this question as another physiotherapist has advised a friend of our patient also with post polio syndrome that:
EMS is generally aimed at individuals with and upper motor neurone issue rather than a peripheral one.
- Post polio symptoms could be made worse by over use of muscle groups with EMS, particularly those too weak to work against gravity.
I wonder if any other contributors to this website had any other input or guidance on this subject?
Our patient has been finding his quads activation to improve using the EMS, but we want to be sure that this is the best treatment course for him.
Kind regards, Philip Morel
