The Science of Microcurrent Soft Tissue Therapy
Microcurrent Soft Tissue Therapy is the application of very low levels of electrical stimulation to muscles, tendons and ligaments to provide pain relief and promote tissue healing. The electrical currents are set at approximately the same level of the normal electrical exchanges which take place in the body’s cellular system (49µ microamps).
Human Microcurrent therapy procedures and equipment were initially developed in the 1970’s by Dr. Thomas Wing, D.C., N.D., L.Ac.. Since that time, different variations of Microcurrent Therapy devices have been invented and a variety of microcurrent therapy protocols have been developed to treat a wide range of muscular/skeletal conditions. Researchers have also developed microcurrent therapy devices and protocols to treat medical conditions other than muscular/skeletal issues, one example is wound healing. You may be familiar with microcurrent devices that are currently sold online to provide stimulation of the facial muscles as a nonsurgical face lift.
Human and Equine Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers have been using microcurrent therapy since the 1980’s to provide their clients with pain relief from:
Acute soft tissue injuries
Chronic soft tissue discomfort
Chronic skeletal discomfort
Traditionally, the microcurrent devices were bulky, expensive and required on-site treatment and monitoring by a trained specialist. Many microcurrent devices are approved by the FDA for human therapy but with the restriction that the therapy be provided under the supervision of a licensed health care provider. The FDA does not regulate equine microcurrent therapy. Some of these devices have been and are currently being used to provide a type of microcurrent therapy to horses.
