Micro current stimulation is a therapy used, when electric current is provided in literally millionths of an amp. It works on a cellular level to help stimulate the healing process. It is based upon the theory that the body's electrical balance is disrupted when one is injured, so that the natural electrical current of the body changes course. Micro- current stimulation restores this balance.
In fact, micro-current therapy can relieve pain, stimulate wound healing, help stimulate the regeneration of injured tissue, provide relief to myofascial trigger points, increase protein synthesis, and stimulate lymphatic flow. This therefore restores the body’s own natural current.
When micro-current therapy is used to help heal injured tissue, it restores the natural current flow to the tissue. This in turn allows the cells to regain their own natural energy flow. When injury occurs, the area that has been injured has a higher electrical resistance than the surrounding tissue does. This in turns decreases and perhaps even stops electrical flow through the injured area, which impedes the healing process and promotes inflammation. When micro-current therapy is used, this resistance is reduced, which allows electricity to flow through and therefore restore normal function. This, in turn, helps stimulate natural healing.
In addition, micro-current therapy can be used at specific frequencies for a variety of tissues and conditions. This can often soften tissue and decrease pain, which provides long-lasting pain relief that may even be permanent. This has some promising benefits that may also be applicable to current chronic pain conditions.
For example, fibromyalgia and myofascial pain have been shown to be greatly reduced and even eliminated with the use of micro-current therapy. When traumatic injury occurs, such as that which occurs with sports, both tendons and ligaments seem to repair much more quickly, and inflammation and swelling is also reduced.
In addition, soft tissue regeneration is improved. It has also been found that if magnet therapy is combined along with micro-current therapy, the benefits can be amplified.
Still another exciting and possible use of micro-current therapy is to help cure addiction. Behavioral programs such as those used to stop smoking, lose weight, or stop drinking seem to benefit from the use of micro-current therapy as well.
Finally, it may also have anti aging and general health benefits. Thus far, studies have shown that using micro-current therapy can help stimulate and re-hydrate collagen, increase the uptake of nutrients within cells, and significantly stimulate the excretion of waste products, including heavy metal from inside cells. Therefore, micro-current therapy may soon be on the horizon not just as a pain relief therapy for those who have been injured or who are suffering from chronic pain, but as a general health and well-being "maintenance" practice used to sustain good health.
