EMS training for the lower back

Woman doing exercises to strengthen her core and lower back muscles with EMS in the gym

The back consists of different muscles that can be specifically trained with an EMS device . However, the lower back muscles are often neglected, although they are of enormous importance, for example for our posture. If the lower back muscles are specifically strengthened, our posture improves when walking, standing and sitting.

In addition, back pain, especially in the area of ​​the lumbar spine, can be avoided or reduced by well-trained muscles. According to a study by the University of Bayreuth, regular EMS training on different parts of the body can relieve back pain.[1]
