Pain can be different for many people. For some it is acute, for others it might be chronic or even worse, debilitating. Regardless of the causative factors, intensity or duration, pain disrupts our ability to enjoy life to its fullest.
Underlying all types of pain are definite changes that occur to our body tissue. Some of these changes are swelling, inflammation, and pain producing chemicals.
Electrical balance is also disrupted causing the electrical current to be disrupted and change course. In this environment healing and tissue regeneration is impaired and the injured tissue remains swollen, hot and painful for a longer period of time.Microcurrent is a physical therapy modality that has been used for over 15 years. When applied to injured tissues, it supports the natural current flow in the tissue, decreases electrical resistance and allows the cells in the traumatized area to regain their capacitance (ability to accept nutrients).
Microcurrent is thought to work on a more cellular level to aid in the healing process due to its close proximity to our own body’s current. It delivers electrical current in millionths of an ampere. For this reason, microcurrent is subsensory and cannot be felt while it is being delivered due to the fact that there is not enough current to stimulate the sensory nerves for pain relief patients.
Microcurrent has the ability to relieve pain, increase the rate of wound healing, stimulate the regeneration of injured tissue, stimulate lymphatic flow, and relieve myofascial trigger points and increase protein synthesis and ATP production by 500%. ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the primary molecule from which our body produces energy, and it is found in every cell of the body. It is the “energy currency” of the cell that stores energy to be transferred and released based on the body’s needs.
Specific frequencies seem to induce effects on specific cells and other tissues. In “Frequency Specific Microcurrent” these frequencies are used for varying tissues. For example, there is a specific frequency for muscles, a different frequency for nerves, another for ligaments etc. In addition to each tissue having a unique frequency, the same is true for different conditions such as inflammation, trauma, scar tissue etc. Once the Doctor determines what is underlying the patient’s condition, the therapist will then use the specific frequencies to address the problem.
Q: How does Microcurrent therapy work?
A: Microcurrent therapy supports the natural electric current in the body’s tissues thereby promoting the healing of inflamed tissues. This allows the inflamed tissues to regain their ability to absorb nutrients.
Q: Does Microcurrent therapy hurt?
A: No, not at all. Microcurrent therapy uses electric current that is in millionths of amperes. This is too small to stimulate the nerves therefore there is no sensation to the patient.
Q: What are the benefits of Microcurrent Therapy?
A: Microcurrent Therapy reduces pain, promotes faster wound healing, stimulates the regeneration of injured tissue and promotes production of ATP by 500 percent. ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the primary molecule from which our body produces energy, and it is found in every cell of the body. It is the “energy currency” of the cell that stores energy to be transferred and released based on the body’s needs.
