Microcurrent therapy (also referred to as Frequency Specific Microcurrent) involves the application of micro-amperage current to the body via electrodes. Microcurrent is current in millionths of an ampere which is the same level of current your body produces on its own within each cell. Our MEND Microcurrent devices deliver subsensory micro-amperage current, 1000 times less than milli-amperage current, so the current flow cannot be felt during treatment. The modality has been shown in published studies to increase ATP (the energy substrate of our cells) production in tissues.
Microcurrent is an excellent modality that can be utilized for pain management, concussion, trauma, acute injuries, sports injuries, non-union fractures, postoperative pain management, neuropathic and myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, and many other health concerns. Thus far, we have seen powerful improvements in pain, sleep, energy, ability to focus, mood, and even food cravings with our patients!
Here are two articles explaining the benefits of microcurrent therapy for the treatment of concussion and wounded warriors.
