Microcurrent Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulator (MENS) is a treatment used to speed tissue healing and reduce pain. A very low-voltage microamperage current (millionths of an ampere) is applied to the skin and passed to the affected nerves or tissues to stimulate the body's healing process. The patient does not feel any pain from the electrical current.
What is the scope of microcurrent therapy?
Studies have demonstrated that the body naturally uses its own bioelectric frequencies when repairing and growing new cells. The application of a micro current similar to the body's natural bioelectric current enhances tissue repair. Research and clinical trials have shown that microcurrent therapy decreases swelling and speeds the healing of sprains, strains and fractures.
MENS is a popular treatment for professional athletes because of its ability to reduce the recovery time of common sports injuries. It is also an effective treatment for various pain syndromes.
