Micro-current therapy is an electrical therapy used at extremely low-level electrical currents to treat nerve and muscle pain, inflammation and other health challenges.
How Does Micro-current Therapy Work?
Each tissue type in your body has its own signature electrical frequency, which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Micro-current therapy simply restores normal frequencies within the cells, resulting in remarkable improvements in pain, inflammation and function.
At the cellular level, micro-current therapy stimulates a dramatic increase, the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It will improve protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair. The ensuing enhancement in blood flow and decrease in inflammation translates into reductions in pain and muscle spasms, as well as increased range of motion.
A Typical Treatment Session offered at the Walnut Creek office of Stojanovich Chiropractic.
Now that one of our Chiropractic Doctors has suggested Micro-current Therapy for you, a member of our staff will schedule you to come into our Walnut Creek office to undergo a relaxing, and safe micro-current therapy session where you will sit comfortably while electrodes are placed at specific points on your body to direct the currents to the targeted tissue or muscle that needs attention. Warm, moist towels are applied to facilitate conduction.
Unlike the more familiar TENS units, which also use electrical currents to relieve pain, micro-currents are so weak that they don’t stimulate the sensory nerves, so you feel no shock-like sensations. These currents work on a wave length designed for deeper penetration at a cellular level.
A treatment course typically involves several sessions, and benefits accrue over time. Micro-current therapy is safe, FDA-approved and has no significant adverse effects. However, it is not recommended for patients who have pacemakers or are pregnant.
