Progressive Medical Center understands that pain can be debilitating. We offer safe pain therapy alternatives to often addictive medications. One of the most advanced and beneficial treatments for pain today is electrotherapy. This is the treatment of pain associated with disease and injury by applying a comfortable electrical stimulation. How does it work? A specific micro-current resembling that which the body naturally produces, is introduced to the system. The body recognizes the current as its own and responds naturally by trying to normalize the problem. Electrotherapy is a safe, non-invasive and effective way to return the body to a state of balance and comfort. Conditions successfully treated with electrotherapy include:
Electricity is found naturally in all of us
Every vital function down to a cellular level operates according to “directions” that are generated in the brain and carried electrically along communication pathways to the rest of the body. When this communication is disturbed, the results are often exhibited through a variety of symptoms including:
Weak Immune System
By mimicking certain electrical currents that occur in the body bioelectric medicine can prompt the body to heal and manage pain more efficiently.
Physical Therapists have consistently reported that in a month (or ten electrotherapy treatments), injured patients experience increase in strength, range of motion and diminished pain.
Just like most aspects of health pain is most effectively addressed when treatments like electrical stimulation are used as part of an integrative plan for healthy living which incorporates balanced nutrition, exercise and supplementation.
