What is Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent therapy is the process in which electrical currents are applied at specific parts of the body. It uses a low-amp electrical stimulus to help heal tissue faster and provide relief from pain. The controlled application of microcurrent therapy can help those with injuries or chronic conditions in association to pain.
Within this article we will be examining how microcurrent therapy can help treat patients with fibromyalgia. Firstly, let us look at how microcurrent therapy works.
Disclaimer: Although this article has undergone extensive research, do not replace the following information with your doctor’s advice. Reach out to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
How does it work?
Did you know that the cells in your body need certain amounts of electricity in order to communicate through electromagnetic signaling? In fact, your body has a natural electric current that helps provide this molecular function. However, it is possible that the body’s cells are unable to perform their function when electromagnetic signals are disrupted, such as from physical injuries. An injury can disrupt the electrical signaling in cells.
Microcurrent therapy works by helping your body restore its electrical current so that the cells can repair themselves. This process gives you the opportunity to heal and prevent future injury.
Microcurrent therapy is non-invasive and is pain-free. The currents are usually given at low levels so you will hardly feel anything. However, this treatment option may not be for everyone. If you have implanted cardiac pacemakers, do not use microcurrent therapy. The electrical stimulus can impact how the pacemaker works. Additionally, there are not enough studies to determine whether this treatment process is harmful to pregnant women. Pregnant women should avoid this treatment option. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant in order to go over the possible risks and effects associated with microcurrent therapy.
As previously mentioned, microcurrent therapy can help treat certain injuries. Besides injuries, it can also help treat other conditions, including sciatica, osteoarthritis, neuromuscular pain or inflammation, myofascial pain, adhesions, and more. It is mostly used in patients who suffer from chronic inflammation or pain as well as tissue injuries or bone injuries. Specifically for this article we will be looking at how microcurrent therapy can help treat fibromyalgia.
Microcurrent Therapy and Fibromyalgia
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is actually the second most common condition that affects the bones and muscles. Unfortunately, there is not a cure for fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia can often be misdiagnosed. Doctors are still unsure about its cause. Some symptoms include widespread muscle and joint pain, insomnia, tiredness, depression, anxiety, twitching, difficulty concentrating, feeling nervous, and more. Although patients with fibromyalgia have to deal with the physical aspects of the condition, there are also the negative affects on the individual’s mentality as well.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that can dramatically impact the patient’s life. However, there are ways to treat the condition and relieve certain symptoms. Microcurrent therapy is a treatment option that can help with the muscular pain and tenderness from fibromyalgia. Because treatment can help relieve physical symptoms of fibromyalgia, it can also have a positive impact on the patient’s mental health. By relieving severe pain, this treatment option can make it easier for patients to focus on their mental health.
Why Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent therapy can be a great option for fibromyalgia patients because it is a painless procedure that is non-invasive and helps with chronic pain. Some treatment methods, such as pain medications or antidepressants, may not work effectively. Microcurrent therapy may be a more effective treatment option if other treatment services are not working for you. However, because there is not a specific way to cure fibromyalgia, this treatment option may not be the best option for you. Talk to your doctor for more information in order to receive accurate details about what steps you should take to treat your condition. You may need to undergo more than one treatment plan and take an all-encompassing approach.
Painmaster Microcurrent Therapy
Painmaster microcurrent therapy is an option that can deliver 24-hour relief. Patients can wear it under their clothing because it consists of small, electronic patches. These patches have several benefits, including how it can release muscle trigger points, it is clinically tested, FDA approved, non-invasive, drug free, natural pain relief, and no external power supply is required. Contact your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may recommend a different method of microcurrent therapy for you depending on your condition.
