When our blood circulates, it flows from our heart throughout our bodies, carrying with it important nutrients, like oxygen, and removes contaminants, two things we require in order to maintain healthy skin and muscles. When we have good circulation, our wounds are able to heal faster and better.
If your wound takes months, or even years to heal, and it hasn’t responded to traditional treatment methods, that means it’s a chronic one, and has turned into one because of conditions like poor circulation. For example, people with diseases such as Diabetes are often affected by circulation issues. Individuals suffering from Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy will experience debilitating and painful circulatory problems to their legs. Habits such as smoking also prevent proper circulation due to the fact that nicotine decreases circulation.
Lack of proper circulation can also cause numbness, which makes wounds in areas of poor circulation very dangerous – if you get injured in that particular area, you may not feel it, and it could become infected.
The Dolphin Neurostim™ has the ability to either increase or decrease the amount of blood circulation in the area of injury. To decrease the circulation would be similar to ice therapy and is most beneficial for pain control and reduction of swelling. To increase would be similar to heat therapy and is most beneficial for immune enhancement and neural regeneration. Helping to decrease or increase the blood flow to the area greatly contributes to the natural healing process.
