When we are absorbed by pain and inflammation, most of us are not likely to associate our condition with cellular changes in our bodies, yet healing and tissue repair begin at this fundamental level. Research has shown that tissue that has been adversely affected by illness, injury, surgery or inflammation has a higher electrical resistance than surrounding healthy tissue. The healing process is associated with a series of electro-chemical reactions that involve increased local circulation and enhanced movement of materials into and out of the cells. Electricity is thus essential in order to provide energy to the cells to fuel the regenerative process.
An increased awareness of the electrical nature of organic tissue has led to the development of technology that is capable of supporting and enhancing this aspect of the healing process. The Electro-Acuscope is an advanced instrument that has demonstrated, in controlled studies, to dramatically increase the rate of tissue repair and to reduce inflammation and thus pain. Using a much lower current than a TENS unit, the Electro-Acuscope reduces pain by stimulating tissue regeneration rather than by stimulating nerves or through the release of endorphins (natural painkillers). The current is continuously and automatically adjusted to match the resistance of the damaged tissue.
The Electro-Acuscope thus establishes a two-way communication between its own computer circuitry and the area of the patient’s body being treated. It exerts its effects by introducing a gentle current (often below the awareness threshold of the patient) in waveforms similar to the body’s own electrical output. This increases the electrical activity of the affected tissues, thus encouraging the healing process.
Because of its prolonged effects on tissue at the cellular level, the Electro-Acuscope can be applied to a broad range of clinical conditions such as muscle spasm, migraine, whiplash, neck and back pain, TMJ disorder, bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, surgical scars, sprains, strains, neuralgia, herpes zoster (shingles), bruising and almost any other inflammatory condition. This device also has a normalizing effect on the autonomic nervous system and is therefore potentially useful in the treatment of stress and sleep disorders. The skill of the practitioner is of considerable importance in the effective application of the Electro-Acuscope for these conditions.
