Microcurrent Therapy in Bowie, MD
Understanding Microcurrent Therapy
Microcurrent therapy is a treatment which uses low-voltage currents to manipulate the body's electrical impulses in order to stimulate healing processes. Every cell in the human body is influenced by electrical impulses in some way—this makes microcurrent therapy a versatile treatment option for pain relief.
How Microcurrent Therapy Works
Microcurrent therapy is administered using tools such as vinyl graphite gloves and electrodes, with each session lasting, on average, between 15 to 90 minutes. Microamperage current is passed from the tools into cells whose electrical impulses are believed to be disrupted. The cells are found within trigger points, or areas of the body which would receive the most benefit from electrical stimulation.
Microcurrent therapy is widely believed to stimulate the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body's “electric currency” used for almost every chemical mechanism the body performs (including healing).
Applications of Microcurrent Therapy
Microcurrent therapy is a popular holistic treatment option for conditions such as fibromyalgia, back pain, arthritis, tissue inflammation, and muscle pain. Although it has become a popular holistic treatment option for a number of ailments, the potential applications of microcurrent therapy are incredibly vast.
Microcurrent Therapy - Risks and Benefits
Aside from the benefits of treatment, an enticing benefit of microcurrent therapy is that the patient is unable to feel the current. The wide variety of applications gives microcurrent therapy the benefit of being a “one-stop-shop” for relief of some of the most common aches and pains.
Risks involved in microcurrent therapy include being scammed or not receiving your money's worth by choosing a practitioner who is neither properly trained nor seasoned with experience.
