Microcurrent Therapy in Horses

MicroCurrent Therapy for Horses


Microcurrent therapy has come into the forefront in recent years as a safe and effective method for alleviating pain. Scientific studies support the basic theory behind the modality.

MicroCurrent therapy is treatment that relieves pain and heals the soft tissues by using extremely small amounts of electrical current to mimic the electrical signals that occur naturally when the body is repairing damaged tissues. As the current flows at one millionth of an ampere it is delivered on the same scale as the current naturally found in each cell of the living horse. By applying similar electrical currents through MicroCurrent therapy, the healing process is enhanced. 

MicroCurrent therapy has been used on horses with great success. The treatment will help with sore muscles, tendon and ligaments injuries, abscesses, laminitis, difficult lameness problems, will relieve pain, increase the rate of healing, increase protein synthesis, stimulate the regeneration of injured tissue, stimulate lymphatic flow and relieve myofascial trigger points.

The treatment is sub-sensory and cannot be felt while it is being delivered to the horse because there is not enough current to stimulate the sensory receptors.

The recovery time is reduced by about half in many instances. It is a completely non-invasive modality.


What are the Benefits of MicroCurrent Therapy?

§       Speeds up the healing process

§       Reduces swelling and edema

§       Stimulates circulation

§       Reduces acute and chronic pain

§       Increases range of motion and eases tightness

§       Accelerates recuperation time

§       Releases muscle trigger points

§       Improves soft tissaue regeneration

§       Increases performance and stamina

§       Non-invasie treatment


How Does MicroCurrent Therapy Work?

Our bodies rely on an array of vessels and ducts to transport blood and fluids and an intricate network of nerves to send impulses to and from the brain to keep us healthy. When an injury occurs, it disrupts the body’s natural electrical pathways. To begin healing, the brain must be notified of any cellular irregularities via electrical impulse.

A microcurrent treatment restores the bodys natural electrical pathways by penetrating the cell wall with a subtle, yet powerful microcurrent to remove metabolic waste and increases the flow of critical nutrients to the injury.

Microcurrent therapy has also shown to increase protein synthesis and amino acid transport in the horse. When applied to the injured tissue, it supports the natural current flow in the tissue, allowing cells in the traumatized area to regain their flow of electrons. Trauma affects the electrical potential of the damaged cells.

MicroCurrent promotes blood flow to the muscles therefore increasing flexibility. Pre-event treatments on healthy equine athletes can help decrease the chance of injury.
