In brief: Relieves angina
The precise mechanism of how eecp relieves angina (chest pain) is not known.
The treatments actively assist the heart in ejecting blood, so it has to work less hard, and help the coronary arteries fill with blood to supply heart muscle. However, pain relief persists after treatments, possibly due to effects on the endothelium cells lining the coronary arteries, which make them more efficient.
