What is MicroCUrrent therapy?
Microcurrent therapy at Kotsanis Institute of Functional Medicine is a pain management therapy that uses extremely low-level electrical currents (microcurrents) to help treat nerve and muscle pain, inflammation, and other health challenges. Our state-of-the-art practice is now accepting new patients for pain management with microcurrent therapy in Grapevine, TX. Each type of tissue in your body has its own signature electrical frequency, which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Microcurrent therapy simply aims to normalize the frequencies within your cells, resulting in remarkable improvements in pain, inflammation, and function. At the cellular level, this therapy helps to stimulate a dramatic increase in ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It also helps to bump up protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair. The ensuing enhancement in blood flow and decrease in inflammation translates into reductions in pain and muscle spasms and an increased range of motion.

Microcurrent Therapy Reviews
Who is a Candidate for Microcurrent Therapy?
You may suffer from pain from inflammation, injury, or disease. We regularly offer consultations for microcurrent therapy to patients with acute or chronic back pain, neck pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, sprains, strains, muscle tears, and more. During a consultation, our team can assess your pain and discuss your eligibility for our microcurrent pain relief treatments.
How does microcurrent therapy work?
We have regular meetings at Kotsanis Institute in which one of our staff does microcurrent demonstrations and training. You will get a chance to be worked on and get hands-on experience. If you can benefit from a microcurrent application, you can purchase a unit and do the treatments at home. Unlike the more familiar transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) units, which also use electrical currents to relieve pain, microcurrent energy is so weak that it will not stimulate your sensory nerves, so you feel no shock-like sensations. You may come to as many training sessions as you like free of charge and bring a friend or family member with you to learn how to help you. Most people get immediate relief to some extent, but you will see even more benefits accrue over time.
What is recovery like after Microcurrent Threrapy?
Our professionals at Kotsanis Institute can provide detailed instructions on how to properly care for yourself after undergoing microcurrent therapy. We also provide a list of recommended ways to help reduce pain and speed up the healing process. This may include drinking water, eating nutrient-rich foods, and getting regular exercise. The good news is since no invasive measures are involved, there is not much downtime required after microcurrent therapy. Our goal is to help you feel better as soon as possible so you can return to your normal activities.
