What Is Electrotherapy?

Frequency Specific Micro-Currents (Electrotherapy) has been one of the most widely researched and published therapies in the world. This modality deliverers a drug-free, non-invasive and non-addictive solution for a sizeable number of health issues. Radio frequencies, transformed into electrical impulses are tuned in and reverberate at the frequency that matches resonance that will produce the desired results. There are 122 frequency specific micro-currents to choose from for a specific disease state that is dialed into the HOCATT™. The options are designed to allow the choice of one or two that best meets your health care needs at the moment. Frequencies in-tune with precise pathogens (viral agents, fungi, bacterial) seek out and eliminate them.

Frequency Specific Micro-Currents

Electrotherapy is known for the treatment of pain associated with fractures, post-operative incisions tendinitis or arthritic inflammation, muscle weakness or loss and depression. Pain sensation could be reduced in many cases by stimulation or primary afferent nerve fibers. Afferent fibers can be activated by electrical stimulation or by natural stimuli such as vibration. In pain management four effects are known through depolarization, repolarization (stimulating effects), shaking effect and sustained depolarization (healing effect).

How Does It Work?

Stimulating effects are induced by repeated depolarization and repolarization of excitable cells (nerve or muscle action impulses). These are low-frequency currents, such as faradic, neo faradic, didynamic, high voltage, triangular and ultra-stimulating currents as well as amplitude-modulated middle frequency currents such as interferential currents or amplitude-modulated middle-frequency currents applied via two electrodes. Such repetitive depolarization and repolarization do not produce healing effects.
Healing effects are produced in excitable and non-excitable cells by the shaking effect (idle frequency current); sustained depolarization (middle frequency current); transport of electric charge carriers (direct effect), heat generation (using frequency current).
