What is Microcurrent Therapy?

Did you know that our body tissue has a natural electrical frequency? And that injury or disease can disturb that biological current?

To restore normal frequencies, we use Microcurrent therapy which has extremely low-level electrical currents (microcurrents) that treat the cells, resulting in remarkable decreases in pain and inflammation, and improvements in function. Microcurrents do not stimulate the sensory nerves, so there is no adverse physical feeling (unlike other equipment such as TENS).

Microcurrent Therapy Treatment Sessions

Microcurrent therapy is performed as you rest comfortably with electrodes placed at strategic locations to direct the microcurrents to the targeted tissues. A treatment series involves several sessions as benefits typically accrue over time.

Benefits of Microcurrent Therapy

Among the many benefits of microcurrent therapy are the dramatic increase in the biochemical energy that fuels the body, a stimulation in blood flow and tissue repair, and decrease in inflammation. The typical result is a reduction in pain or muscle spasms, and an increase in range of motion.

Microcurrent Therapy is effective

Microcurrent Therapy is effective for treating Arthritis, Back pain, Diabetic ulcers, Fibromyalgia, Headaches, Herpes, Neck pain, Neuropathy, Sciatica, Shingles, Slow-healing wounds, Sports injuries, Tendon and ligament pain.

Is Microcurrent Therapy safe?

 Microcurrent therapy is a safe, FDA-approved treatment with no significant side effects. That said, we advise against this treatment for anyone who has a pacemaker or is pregnant.


How long is the average Microcurrent Therapy session?

To reduce the pain and increase to rate of healing, an average treatment lasts 15-30 minutes. Microcurrent therapy works best in combination with Chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic exercise. For optimal results, we recommend it be performed several times.


How effective is Microcurrent Therapy?

The effectiveness of microcurrent therapy clinically documented in 1990 by L. A. Wallace in a study of 1,531 patients with a large variety of diagnoses. Ninety-four percent of the patients experienced a reduction in pain during the first treatment. The average number of treatments to achieve a zero/one pain level on a zero to ten scale was 3.8. Ninety percent of the subjects studied achieved a zero/one pain level in less than ten treatments. (Wallace. LA. MENS Therapy: Clinical Perspectives Vol. 1. Cleveland: privately published. 1990.)
