Bio-electric therapy is a specialized form of electrical therapy that uses specific frequencies and currents to target specific tissues and conditions in the body. It involves the application of low-level electrical currents to specific points or areas of the body to promote healing and pain relief.
Bio-electric therapy utilizes micro amperage currents, which are extremely low-level electrical currents that mimic the body's natural electrical signals. These currents are delivered using specialized devices that allow precise control over the frequencies and intensity of the electrical stimulation.
The specific frequencies used in Bio-electric therapy are believed to have unique effects on different tissues, cells, and physiological processes in the body. Here are some common uses of Bio-electric therapy:
Pain Management: Bio-electric therapy is often utilized for pain relief and management. Specific frequencies are applied to targeted areas to help reduce inflammation, relax muscles, improve circulation, and alleviate pain. It can be used for acute injuries, chronic pain conditions, musculoskeletal issues, and neuropathic pain.
Soft Tissue Injuries: Bio-electric therapy has been used to support the healing of soft tissue injuries, such as sprains, strains, and tendonitis. The electrical stimulation can help promote tissue repair, reduce swelling, and accelerate the healing process.
Sports Performance and Recovery: Bio-electric therapy is employed by athletes and sports professionals to enhance performance, prevent injuries, and speed up recovery. It can be used to optimize muscle function, reduce muscle fatigue, and support injury rehabilitation.
Neurological Conditions: Bio-electric therapy has been explored as a potential therapy for various neurological conditions, including peripheral neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, and traumatic brain injury. It aims to modulate neural activity, improve nerve function, and reduce neuropathic symptoms.
Digestive Disorders: Bio-electric therapy has been applied to gastrointestinal conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Specific frequencies may help regulate gut motility, reduce inflammation, and alleviate symptoms associated with digestive disorders.
Scar Tissue and Adhesions: Bio-electric therapy is sometimes used to address scar tissue and adhesions that can result from surgeries or injuries. The electrical stimulation can help break down scar tissue, improve tissue mobility, and promote healthier healing.
We frequently combine Bio-electric therapy with acupuncture treatments to enhance and magnify the effect for our patients.
