Electrical Stimulation

Microcurrent therapy is a treatment modality used to treat pain relief through the delivery of a low-level electrical current. The current is delivered to certain parts of your body in an attempt to relieve pain.

The frequency of the electrical impulses may vary depending on the type of device used and the treatment goals. The electrical waves produced by the microcurrent device are thought to stimulate energy production (ATP) which is necessary for cellular tissue repair and recovery.

Microcurrent therapy is often used to:

  1. Reduce/relief pain
  2. Stimulate tissue healing
  3. Reduce inflammation and/or swelling

Microcurrent treatment may be helpful for:

  • Disc injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Neuromas (overgrowth and scarring to a nerve after an injury)
  • Tendinopathy (inflammation and/or swelling of the tendon)
  • Acute (sudden) and chronic (long-term) musculoskeletal injuries
  • Acute and chronic neuropathic (nerve) pain
  • Arthritis
  • Torticollis (the head is tilted to one side)
  • Disc injuries/discogenic-and facet-based pain
  • Headaches
  • Plantar fasciitis (pain in the heel and foot)
  • Sports injuries
  • Wounds
