Microcurrent stimulation is a type of therapy in which very low current is sent into the cells of the body. Therapists use this kind of treatment for pain relief, injury healing, increased blood circulation, sports medicine, physical therapy, and more. It recently has shown promise as a treatment for the eye disease, macular degeneration.
The electrical current used in microcurrent stimulation is similar to the electrical activity that happens within the body's cells. Therapists believe that this current can jump start an ailing cell's regular electrical activity and restore normal functioning. By restoring normal functioning, the therapy can help heal muscle and bone tissue, repair ligaments and tendons, and prevent muscle atrophy.
One of the most common uses of microcurrent stimulation is pain relief. Many researchers and health practitioners believe that by applying a very low electrical current, the pain impulse is interrupted, and a person experiences relief from the pain. Other researchers believe that the electrical current stimulates the release of a chemical that numbs the tissues or raises the pain threshold.
