Injury often disrupts the body’ electrical balance and impedes the supply of blood, oxygen and vital nutrients to the injured area, slowing the healing process. Microcurrent stimulation uses a very mild electrical impulse, which, although painless, has a powerful effect on the body. Microcurrent therapy works to change the electrical messages sent to cells in injured areas of the body. This helps restore essential blood supply to injured areas, remove cell waste and relieve pain by stimulating natural healing. Microcurrent therapy is effective in the treatment of soft-tissue injuries, decreased motion, stiffness, mobility problems and swelling/inflammation. It may also be used as part of post-surgical care.
