Microcurrent Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulator: Speed Healing, Reduce Pain
A small electrical current can supercharge your healing – and you won’t feel a thing. The Microcurrent Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulator (MENS) can speed tissue healing while reducing 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. You won’t feel any pain from the electrical current.
How it works
Your body uses its own bioelectric frequencies when repairing and growing new cells. Tissue repair can be enhanced when a micro current similar to your body’s natural bioelectric current is applied. Research and clinical trials have shown that microcurrent therapy decreases swelling and speeds the healing of sprains, strains and fractures.
What it treats
MENS is a popular treatment for professional athletes because of its ability to reduce the recovery time of common sports injuries. Athletes have turned to MENS to heal sprains, strains, fractures, ligament injuries, ruptured tendons and bone bruising. It’s also an effective treatment for pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia, neuropathy and shingles. Be sure to inform your doctor if you are using an alternative therapy.
