Microcurrent Point Stimulation
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) is a needleless treatment modality that applies concentrated, low frequency, DC electrical microcurrent stimulation to a special combination of key acupuncture trigger points for the treatment of pain and the release of scar tissue and adhesions. Combining the principles of acupuncture and neurology, MPS is a successful treatment for chronic pain.
MPS Therapy applies concentrated DC micro-stimulation to produce an acupuncture-like response that “releases” muscle tissue which is impinging nerves and causing pain. This permits increased re-innervation of affected neural pathways, allowing pain levels to be substantially decreased, often instantaneously. This multi-pronged approach that uses the principles of acupuncture and musculoskeletal trigger points, as well as neuromuscular and neural therapies, is the reason why MPS Therapy works so well on pain.
MPS Therapy has proved successful in the treatment of back and neck pain, whiplash, temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), fibromyalgia, neuropathies, migraines, headaches, joint pain, sports injuries, carpal tunnel, torticollis, postoperative radiculopathy, neuropathy, plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder and shoulder pain, scar tissue, tennis elbow and many other neuromyofascial pain syndromes.
This technology is unsurpassed in the area of scar release. Whether immediately post-op, several years or even decades after surgery or injury, release of scar tissue has been shown to improve conditions presenting in other areas of the body.
MPS also carries no risk of physical dependence, a growing concern with the potent pain medications currently on the market.
