Microcurrent is the form of electrical currents applied to an injured area of the body. Microcurrent Therapy is the application process with microcurrent that helps injured tissue heal quicker and provides fast pain relief to a patient caused by injury or a chronic condition. Similarly to Electrical Stimulation Therapy or Interferential Current Therapy, electrodes are placed softly on the skin of the injured or sore area, feeling just like a sticker stuck to you. However, unlike EMS or IFC, the current that is passed through the soft tissue are very small or light, which causes the patient to actually never feel the process happening.
The human body has a natural electrical current running through it constantly in order to help all the body's cells to communicate to one another. When an injury occurs, a tissue tightness/soreness, or even disease is present, the natural electrical current is disrupted. When this disrpution occurs, the cells cannot communicate to one another they cannot function properly. Of course, this slows down the healing process of the body as a whole. This is where Microcurrent Therapy comes into play.
Our microcurrent therapy restores the electromagnetic field or natural electrical current back into your body so that the cells can get back to normal. As this process happens it helps speed up the healing process. Microcurrent therapy treatment basically gives the body's cells a jump start or reboot of electricity to get back to normal after something bad happens to any soft tissue or muscle. This form of therapy has been known to provide patients with many benefits including: decreasing pain, decreasing inflammation, aiding muscle spasms and may also help with range of motion.
