This patient is receiving acupuncture plus frequency specific microcurrent treatment for post-surgical hip labrum repair. The acupuncture helps normalize blood flow and reduce muscle tension in the tissues it can touch. However, the microcurrent can penetrate to a desired deeper target like the hip joint capsule, painful nerve or inside of the joint itself.
The electrical current is 1 millionth of a tens unit (small) but can provide a powerful response.
In multiple published studies microcurrent increased cell energy production (ATP) by 500%!
This means faster healing and less pain many times after the first treatment.
We use it to treat nerve pain, concussions, headaches, plantar fasciitis, disc herniations, arthritis, shingles, and joint sprains to just name a few!
