Frequency Specific Microcurrent for the Treatment of Diastasis Recti

2019-08-25 21:28:53 | BioPortfolio


Determine if frequency specific microcurrent therapy improves pain management of DRA by 30% or greater.


Females aged 18 years or older who are postpartum from a singleton gestation status post vaginal and with diastasis recti will be recruited. The aim of this study is to determine if frequency specific microcurrent therapy improves pain management of DRA by 30% or greater

Improving DRA after microcurrent therapy in post-partum females may allow a faster, more effective return to activity thereby improving the return-to-duty transition and establishing personal readiness by meeting military fitness standards.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A B7 antigen that binds specifically to INDUCIBLE T-CELL CO-STIMULATOR PROTEIN on T-CELLS. It provides a costimulatory signal for T-cell proliferation and cytokine secretion.

A costimulatory receptor that is specific for INDUCIBLE T-CELL CO-STIMULATOR LIGAND. The receptor is associated with a diverse array of immunologically-related effects including the increased synthesis of INTERLEUKIN 10 in REGULATORY T-LYMPHOCYTES and the induction of PERIPHERAL TOLERANCE.

Abnormal separation of muscles.

Abnormal separation of bones, often from a LIGAMENT.

Separation of the PUBIC SYMPHYSIS. It is an uncommon complication of CHILDBIRTH causing postpartum PAIN, but it can also arise from other causes.
