What is Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent is the application of frequency specific electrical currents to the injured part of the body. Microcurrent Therapy helps injured tissue heal faster and provides relief from pain caused by injury or chronic conditions. Microcurrent therapy is most valuable when combined with your individualized exercise program and manual therapy sessions.
How Microcurrent Therapy Works.
Your body has a natural electrical current that provides intercellular communication through electromagnetic signaling. When you have an injury, this signaling is disrupted or diminished. Without the proper electromagnetic signals, your cells cannot do their job efficiently.
Microcurrent therapy helps to restore your electromagnetic field back to normal, thus allowing your injured cells to repair themselves. This leads to healing and prevention of re-injury.
If you would like to know more about how microcurrent therapy works, we suggest you read The Body Electric: Electromagnetism and the Foundation of Life, by Robert Becker, M.D. In this book, he describes how tiny electrical currents speed up healing and regeneration of injured tissue and bone.
