Microcurrent electrical neuromuscular stimulation is the use of weak electric signals (less than 1 microampere, or 1 millionth of an amp) to treat injured tissue. It is commonly used by professional athletes to ease pain and speed healing. Studies have also found it to be associated with a mild reduction in levels of depression and anxiety when used cranially.
Microcurrent Point Stimulation combines microcurrent electrical neuromuscular stimulation with acupuncture points and/or trigger points (see: Trigger Point Release [link to trigger point release] for an understanding) to release and alleviate associated pain. It is also used to treat scar tissue.
Microcurrents work in part by increasing the level of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the treated cells. ATP is the main energy source for the majority of cellular functions, including synthesizing RNA and DNA, as well as maintaining cell structure.
