Emsculpt Neo – Solution for a Sedentary Life
Do you know that, according to the WHO in 2002, about 60-85% of people in the world lead sedentary lifestyles? Do you also know that about one-third of the global population aged 15 years and older engages in insufficient physical activities? A sedentary lifestyle is one of the more serious, yet insufficiently addressed public health problems of our time. If your daily life is sedentary, you may suffer from a number of health issues, of which one of the most common is back pain.
Sitting for long hours in an incorrect position can cause back pain as it is an unnatural position for us to be in. Furthermore, constantly bending over to look at your computer or your mobile phone can result in rounded shoulders. When your shoulders and upper back round forward and down, your neck naturally goes in the same direction so as to allow you to gaze downward. Your ribcage muscles will follow. In this posture, your head is projected forward over the spine, which is unnatural. When these muscles, which help you to rotate and straighten, become weak, you are more likely to hunch forward.
In the lower half of the body, there is a muscle which runs from the core, connects the rib cage to the pelvis, stabilises your spine when you are moving and sitting, and helps you to lift your legs and get out of bed.
When you sit for a long time, this muscle can get stressed and tired. In a knock-on reaction, your hip flexors can tighten and contract in the opposite direction, this turns off your glute muscles, causing a dead butt syndrome.
Beyond the above effects, a sedentary lifestyle may cause you to lose muscle strength and endurance as you are not using your muscles often. Weak and imbalanced muscles might prevent you from doing HIIT exercises and yoga properly.
Emsculpt Neo uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) to trigger over 20,000 muscle contractions in a 30-minute session, which no human is capable of performing in any workout. The contractions induce stress on the muscles which result in the growth of more muscle fibres and cells, effectively growing your various core muscles to keep you from slumping. Thicker, stronger muscles will protect your spine from leaning on its ridges.
At the same time, radiofrequency energy heats the area of application gradually to 42oC, the ideal temperature to melt fat which you might have gained during long, sedentary hours. The treatment can help you gain 25% more muscle, plus a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat. Emsculpt Neo can also help you build muscle balance so that you can continue carrying out physical activity without your sedentary lifestyle adversely hurting your muscles.
