Inflammatory Conditions & Pain Management


People question how Microcurrent devices can help with such a vast array of different conditions. They are right to question this as it’s a relatively new area of treatment and we think some companies, how shall we put this, talk absolute nonsense.

The common denominator here is inflammation, and this helps explains why our customers tell us they get the best results with high or chronic inflammatory conditions, irrespective of what those conditions are. Inflammation is present in all injuries, in varying degrees, as is the pain associated with them.

When tissue is repaired, inflammation is reduced. And inflammation is how the body perceives pain.

Our devices simply start a chain of events that can help kick start the body’s own repair process at a time it is least able to. When it is injured.

When an injury occurs, the body’s natural electrical frequencies can be disrupted, reducing the regeneration of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) within the damaged cells. ATP is the energy-providing molecule required for all metabolic cellular processes – and is essential for pain management and tissue repair.

What Microcurrent can do, however, is help the body manage the pain of inflammation. When tissue is repaired, inflammation is reduced. And inflammation is how the body perceives pain.

Be very wary of any company that tells you their devices tackle one specific condition. Genuine Microcurrent therapy is known to have a systemic effect, which means the whole body, so it can’t just have an impact in one area or on a particular condition.

That’s selective marketing, not treatment or clear consumer guidance. It just confuses everybody and makes a new and very exciting area of treatment harder to understand.
