Microcurrent 850 Machine Therapy
The Microcurrent Model 850 is a non-invasive means of pain relief with broad applications for acute and chronic pain. It may be sufficient, in many cases as the only therapeutic method required. Effective results have been seen during and/or consequent to stimulation over affected body parts, adjacent skin areas and/or areas removed from those in pain. It is used for the relief and management of chronic pain, and post surgical and post traumatic acute pain problems. This is a dual channel unit, which allows you to use up to four electrodes at a time (two electrodes per channel).
Where TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is used for the relief of pain, Microcurrent, because of its proximity to our own body's current, is thought to work on a more cellular level.
In fact, you do not even feel the stimulation. The only time you feel the pulse is if you put the electrodes behind your ears on your neck. It produces a euphoric sensation and has a hypnotic effect. It is like nothing else you have ever tried for pain and stress relief. Yes instant pain and stress relief. Read the Southern Medical Journal on this site on the pain research page.
It is theorized that healthy tissue is the result of direct flow of electrical current throughout our body. Electrical balance is disrupted when the body is injured at a particular site, causing the electrical current to change course. The use of Microcurrent or needle free acupuncture over the injured site is thought to realign this flow, thus aiding in tissue repair.
It has been found that ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) in the cell helps promote protein synthesis and healing. The lack of ATP due to trauma of the tissue results in the decreased production of sodium and an increase in metabolic wastes, which is perceived as pain. The use of Microcurrent at an injured area helps realign the body's electrical current, increase the production of ATP, resulting in increased healing and recovery, as well as blocking the pain that is perceived.
What is Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and heal soft tissues of the body.
How does Microcurrent Therapy work?
Injury to the body disrupts its normal electrical activity. Microcurrent Therapy produces electrical signals like those naturally occurring when the body is repairing damaged tissues. By applying similar electrical currents, the healing process is enhanced.
What does Microcurrent Therapy feel like?
The electrical current used in Microcurrent Therapy is so small that it is rarely felt. However, the water-moistened electrodes or gel used to conduct the current may seem cool when first applied.
Why is Microcurrent Therapy used?
Microcurrent Therapy is often recommended in cases involving soft tissue inflammation or muscle spasm. Since Microcurrent Therapy mimics the body's electrical fields it is helpful in relieving pain and stimulating the healing of soft tissues.
