Microcurrent FAQ

What is microcurrent?

Every living thing on the earth has its own electrical current. When a body is sick or injured whether it be physical or surgical injury your body’s natural current is impaired. Our microcurrent units will mimic your own body’s current with milliamps, (millionths of an amp). The Therascope is the only electrical modality to penetrate the cell wall, which increases the Adenosine Troposphere (ATP) energy for the call. By increasing ATP you are able to heal an injury much faster than normal. Microcurrent is the only electrical modality that is FDA approved.

How is microcurrent used?

Every cell has an electrical charge with a negative and a positive charge to it. Like batteries in a flashlight the negative and positive parts of the batteries should be put in the flashlight correctly in order to get the optimum light. If you put the batteries in backwards you may get light but not the optimum light. At Knots Out Therapeutics, we calibrate our equipment to the polarity of the patient’s body, therefore maximizing the treatment.

How long does it take?

Each treatment lasts about one hour from start to finish, depending on how many areas are being treated. The time that you are receiving microcurrent varies anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.

How often should you treat?

A treatment will last 24 hours. You can treat sooner but it is like blowing up a balloon when the cells are full you cannot put any more into them. The number of treatments will depend on the injury; ultimately we are unable to predict the number of treatments.

What is the difference between microcurrent units?

Most microcurrent units use specific frequencies to treat specific issues. Therascope reads your body’s resistance and then will mimic the body’s natural current.

Who can benefit from microcurrent?

Anyone can benefit from microcurrent that has a cell injury or damage such as sprains, strains, or broken bones. Microcurrent can treat chronic myofascial pain quickly, easily and comfortably. Nerve pain from pinched nerve injuries, disc bulges and herniations can also be treated successfully with microcurrent.

How is microcurrent different than TENS and electric stimulation?

Microcurrent is the only electrical modality to penetrate the cell wall. TENS and electric
stimulation are designed to interrupt the body’s natural electrical pathways to block pain signals
to the brain, which can inhibit the healing process.
