What's the deal with micro-current therapy?

A funny thing happened recently. Well, not funny-funny, but kinda funny...

We recently acquired the New Zealand rights to the Nurokor range of MedSafe approved medical devices. These are EMS, TENS, and micro-current devices to aid repair, recovery, and performance. I had been slowly sifting through the research (which is quite impressive!) on the effects of electrical current therapies and in among researching recovery from joint injury, wouldn't ya know it, I sustained a Grade V AC joint separation at Jiu Jitsu!

So, not only have I been delving into the research, I've been, by necessity, applying the therapy myself!

How does microcurrent help?

Micro-current therapy involves applying a sub-perceptual dose of electrical current to an injured area. 

The research suggests that micro-current therapy can:

  • Can improve the healing rate of injured tissue
  • Improve bone healing rates
  • Improve healing time for ligament and tendon injury
  • Improve skin-wound healing time
  • Reduce pain after injury

How I'm using microcurrent

I'm using the Nurokor MiTouch device (the BIG DADDY) on my injured shoulder using the 'Pain Plus' setting for around 10-20 min and then switching immediately to the Micro-current setting fro an additional 20 min, around 2 times per day. 

Note: The MiBody device is also effective

What have I noticed?

Using the device seems to my reduce pain and improve mobility on the days I use it vs those I don't, and based on the research, it's probably doing more than just that and is working away 'behind the scenes' to speed  tissue repair. 

What else am I doing?

Along with the Nurokor device, I am using the following shake 2 x daily (along with Physio and rehab work):
