|What Health Issues
can Acupuncture Treat?
MICROCURRENT POINT STIMULATION (MPS)MPS applies concentrated DC micro-stimulation to produce an "acupuncture" response that "releases" muscle tissue that impinges nerves and causes joint articulations (pain). This action permits increased reinnervation of affected neural pathways, allowing patient pain levels to be substantially decreased, often instantaneously. This multi-pronged approach to the body's nervous and musculoskeletal system is the reason why MPS works so well on pain.
The intention of MPS is to isolate the root causes of a patient's pain by applying micro-stimulation to acupuncture points that relate to different muscles, tissues and systems (neurological, segmental, limbic, myofascial etc).
HOW DOES MPS WORK?
MPS electrically locates and stimulates a specific series of treatment points (acupuncture, trigger and motor) which, historically, have been proven to help relieve chronic pain syndromes.
In acupuncture and trigger point therapy, the insertion of needles has been scientifically proven to stimulate the release of powerful internal opiates called endorphins. These natural pain relievers are secreted from the pituitary and are circulated throughout your body via your blood stream. Not only are endorphins the most powerful pain relievers known to mankind, they enhance the immune system, reduce stress and produce a feeling of euphoria (endorphins are your feel-good hormones).
Science has long known that a special form of low frequency DC electrical stimulation applied to these same points can reproduce the endorphin response just as in traditional needling. The reason why MPS works so well for pain relief is that it taps into our body's own internal pain relieving system, the endorphin response.
Secondly, MPS releases or relaxes contracted and spastic muscles. Applying MPS to tightened and contracted muscles, or to treatment points which relate to them, "releases" the muscles and permits increased reinnervation of their neural pathways. This process allows the suffering person's pain levels to be substantially decreased.
In other words, by relaxing the muscles there is less pressure on the nerves which calms the nerve pathways, permitting greater range of motion and increased functionality. Also, by keeping the muscles soft and supple, you guard yourself against further injury while at the same time maintaining optimal health of muscle tissue.
MPS then becomes an excellent alternative for the patient that may not do well with needles. MPS Therapy is effective for: migraines, elbow / wrist, hypo / hypertonism, arthritic joints, hip / knee, TMJ, back / neck pain, ankle / foot, parkinsons, torticolis, neuropathies, autism, frozen shoulders, fibromyalgia, headaches, strokes and much more!
