Microcurrent electrical stimulation is a technique for treating musculoskeletal pain by using low-level electrical current, where the current is delivered by a particular device to certain parts of your body that are affected. This kind of therapy uses an extremely mild electrical current, which is only one millionth of an ampere. The human body also produces its own current in each cell, making this therapy suitable to treat pain and body aches. So, let’s take a look at the 3 reasons why you should choose microcurrent electrical stimulation therapy for your pain!

Microcurrent electrical stimulation has little to no side effects.

Due to its non-invasive and non-opioid nature, microcurrent electrical stimulation is considered extremely safe for everyone. From children to senior citizens, microcurrent electrical therapy can be effective in treating injured muscles and joints, repair body tissues, reduce inflammation, and eliminate pain without having to consume medicines or go under the knife.

There are, however, some conditions that you need to pay attention to before undergoing microcurrent therapy. Make sure that you are hydrated, drinking plenty of water before your treatment session begins. Furthermore, if you are one of these groups of people, you are unfortunately not suitable for microcurrent electrical therapy.

List of people who should not undergo a microcurrent treatment:

  • People with pacemakers (small devices implanted in the chest to help control the heartbeat).

  • People who have uncontrolled seizures.

  • People with implanted pumps (battery-powered devices that are surgically implanted to provide continuous drug delivery for pain management in patients with non-cancer pain).

  • Pregnant women.

 

Microcurrent electrical stimulation improves your body’s ability to repair itself.

As previously stated, the human body produces its own natural current within every cell, which provides intercellular communication through electromagnetic signaling. This signaling is interfered with and the communication is disrupted when your tissues and muscles get injured. So, this is where microcurrent technology plays its role. The low-level electrical current delivered to your affected tissues will help restore your body’s electromagnetic field back to normal, allowing the injured cells to heal. The length of the healing process is different for every individual, some take a longer time to heal than others. The good news is, other than speeding up the process of recovery, microcurrent treatment procedures can also contribute to the prevention of getting similar injuries in the future.

Microcurrent electrical stimulation can be personalized according to your injuries and needs, and it works best when combined with other hands-on therapy and exercise programs.

The frequencies used in microcurrent electrical stimulation differs, depending on the injuries and tissues involved. For every kind of tissue in your body, there is a specific frequency. Moreover, this therapy will not mess with other manual therapy or medications that you have to be under. Instead, microcurrent treatment will support other treatment methods that you require to do, and thus, accelerate your healing process.

Some injuries that microcurrent therapy can treat include:

  • Arthritis,

  • Fibromyalgia,

  • Sports injuries,

  • Back pain,

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome,

  • Tennis elbow,

  • Muscle sprains and strains,

  • Post-surgery pain,

  • Shoulder pain,

  • Nerve injuries,

  • And many more.

No gain without pain, but if we can avoid it, then why not?

Hitting the gym for the first time can be intimidating, especially if you go on your own. Once you walk in, it can even feel like people are staring at you (but honestly, they’re not). Then, as a gym newbie, you’ll have to be familiar with the equipment, or maybe you’d want to make small talks with the fitness junkies who have been devoted members there for years. Well, making friends is necessary, but knowing the correct workout posture and how to use the equipment properly is more essential.

Why? Obviously, when you’re not familiar with the fitness gears and proper exercising positions, it’ll be easy for you to get injured. You don’t want that. It’s not only painful, but it will also interfere with your daily life outside the gym. There are several injuries that are common in the fitness world that you, as a gym newbie, should know. Let’s break them down one by one.

Lower back pain

This injury is one of the most common ones. Lower back pain may result from muscle strain that happens around the area of the spine, either due to overstrenuous workout and heavy-lifting, or incorrect body posture.

Lower back pain

Knee pain

Knee pain occurs among gym enthusiasts quite often, too, and it can be excruciating. Knee injury has different types, though, such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, which is a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament that connects the thigh bone to the shin bone. Another knee pain involves irritation and inflammation of one or more tendons that attach the muscles to the bones, which is called patellar tendinitis.

Knee pain

Shoulder strain (rotator cuff injury)

Rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder joint, allowing you to move and rotate your arms. When your rotator cuff is hurt, it will be hard for you to even comb your hair. Your shoulder will ache at the slightest movement. It may be a result of lifting excessively heavy weight and improper training form.

Shoulder strain

To minimize the possibility of getting injured, it’s important to do some warm-ups and stretching before working out. Start small—by running a short distance on a treadmill before increasing the number once you get used to it, by lifting lighter weights first before gradually moving on to the heavier ones. Be consistent and press on, but don’t be too hard on yourself either. Aim for progress instead of perfection.

Warming up

However, if you wake up the next morning after your first gym day, you may experience soreness throughout your body. This is normal, it doesn’t always mean your body’s injured, as long as the soreness and pain subside within a reasonable timeframe. But if the pain persists, then that’s a sign that you do get injured. That sucks, but injuries shouldn’t stop or demotivate you from reaching your goals.

When it happens, instead of taking prescribed medicines, let me offer you a better alternative: physiotherapy. Physiotherapy has been proven effective to treat various injuries, from the injuries with milder pain to the chronic ones.
