Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) is a non-invasive treatment where a pulsed magnetic field is applied to a localised part of the body, this pulsed magnetic field stimulates muscles and causes them to contract. The magnetic stimulation may result in increased strength and endurance of muscles in the targeted area.
