These days, chances are you know someone who has tried acupuncture. You might be skeptical and wonder how it works and what conditions can help?
Our acupuncturist Aaron is well versed in many different acupuncture techniques. One that we would like to highlight is Microcurrent Therapy.
Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely low-level electrical currents (microcurrents) to treat nerve and muscle pain, inflammation and other health challenges.
So how does it work? Each tissue type in your body has its own signature electrical frequency which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Microcurrent therapy restores normal frequencies within the cells, resulting in remarkable improvements in pain, inflammation and function.
At the cellular level, Microcurrent therapy stimulates a dramatic increase in energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It also increases protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair. The ensuing enhancement in blood flow and decrease in inflammation translates into reductions in pain and muscle spasms as well as increased range of motion.
What are some common conditions can Microcurrent therapy treat?
- Back pain
- Diabetic ulcers
- Neck pain
- Slow-healing wounds
- Sports injuries
- Tendon and ligament pain
Microcurrent therapy is safe, FDA-approved and has no significant adverse effects. If you have any of these conditions and you are looking for solutions, call us at 908-756-2424 or book an appointment!
Note: Microcurrent therapy is not recommended for patients who have pacemakers or are pregnant.
