Another form of electric therapy that we offer is called microcurrent therapy. This is a form of therapy that is implemented for patients who have chronic pain and soft tissue injuries. The process begins when electrodes are placed over the skin above the damaged tissue. Micocurrents are very small, and unlike EMS therapy, you do not feel any sensations while the treatment takes place.
There is a natural electrical current within our own bodies that facilitates communication between our cells. If injury or disease is present, those natural currents are interrupted. Once this happens, cells are unable to properly function. Without cells that are communicating properly, healing time slows down dramatically. Microcurrent therapy improves healing time by restoring the electromagnetic fields and improving cell communication inside of the body.
Microcurrent therapy decreases pain and inflammation, helps improve range of motion, and eliminates muscle spasms.
Microcurrent therapy is a great treatment for neck and back pain, as well as many other acute and chronic physical conditions. Usually treatment requires several sessions. We also typically pair this treatment with another form of chiropractic therapy for best results. To learn more about microcurrent therapy, contact us today!
