Although most men and women turn to over the counter pain relievers to control muscle and nerve aches, this method of controlling their symptoms is temporary and only tends to provide minimal relief. At Daniela Dadurian, M.D., we offer microcurrent therapy to relieve pain symptoms gently and comfortably.
Contact Daniela Dadurian, M.D. at one of our multiple locations in Palm Beach County to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dadurian and find out if you are a candidate for microcurrent therapy.
What is Microcurrent Therapy?
Utilizing low-level electrical currents, called microcurrents, this therapy is effective in treating nerve and muscle pain, inflammation, and many other medical conditions. In the body, each type of tissue has its electrical signal, which can become disrupted by disease or injury.
During microcurrent therapy, normal electrical signals within your cells are restored, eliminating pain symptoms and improving overall functionality. At a cellular level, microcurrent energy increases the protein synthesis necessary for tissue repair and also boosts ATP, the fuel for all of the body’s biochemical processes.
These processes increase blood flow and reduce inflammation, improving range of motion and reducing pain and muscle spasms.
What is a Microcurrent Therapy Session Like?
During a typical microcurrent therapy treatment, electrodes are strategically placed in target areas while you sit comfortably. Warm, moist towels are then usually applied to help with the conduction process.
Unlike other therapies that use electric current conduction, microcurrents are too small to stimulate the sensory nerves, eliminating the risk of any shock-like symptoms during treatment. Depending on your individual condition and needs, multiple sessions may be necessary to manage your symptoms effectively.
What Does Microcurrent Therapy Treat?
Microcurrent therapy has been clinically proven to reduce pain and inflammation in some medical conditions such as:
- Back pain
- Diabetic ulcers
- Neck pain
- Sports injuries
- Ligament and tendon pain
Am I a Good Candidate for Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent therapy is FDA-approved and safe for most patients with no major side effects reported. Fatigue and drowsiness are sometimes experienced by patients but typically subside within four to 24 hours.
Individuals who have pacemakers or are pregnant should seek alternative forms of treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Dadurian will assess your overall health, medical history and the source of your pain to individualize a treatment plan tailored to your specific pain management.
