Each tissue in the body has its own specific electrical frequency, which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Specific frequencies Microcurrent applied to the affected area restores normal frequencies within the cells, resulting in remarkable improvements in pain, inflammation and function.
At the cellular level, microcurrent therapy stimulates a dramatic increase in ATP, the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It also rises protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair. The subsequent enhancement in blood flow and decrease in inflammation leads to reduction in pain and muscle spasms, as well as increased range of motion.
When you undergo microcurrent therapy, you lie comfortably while electrodes are placed at strategic locations to direct the currents to the targeted tissues. Warm, moist towels are applied to facilitate electrical conduction.
Unlike the more familiar TENS units, which also use electrical currents to relieve pain, microcurrents therapy uses very low level electrical current that is not detectable by the person treated.
The therapist will sit at the side of you and where applicable will check the tissues and their response to the treatment.
A treatment course typically involves several sessions, and benefits accrue over time. Microcurrent therapy is safe and has no significant adverse effects. However, it is not recommended for patients who have pacemakers or are pregnant.
