Microcurrent therapy uses low-level electrical currents to heal the body and relieve pain in the soft tissues. Short therapy sessions are excellent for facilitating the healing of both acute and chronic pains. At Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center, we use this type of therapy as a compliment to chiropractic for increasing a patient’s overall health and rate of healing while decreasing pain and rate of illness and injury.
Each tissue in your body has its own electrical frequency, which can be disrupted by an injury. Microcurrent therapy alleviates pain and inflammation and helps the tissue heal by restoring its normal frequency within the cells by sending a very small amount of current to the injured area. If you are suffering from muscle spasms, the current can help relax the muscle and return it to its normal state. The therapy also increases protein synthesis and ATP, which is the energy that fuels biochemical function at the cellular level. Both help accelerate healing.
Treatment usually involves several sessions and can benefits a range of conditions, from arthritis, headaches, fibromyalgia, headaches and neck pain to neuropathy, sciatica, shingles, slow-healing wounds, tendon and ligament pain and back pain.
