What if there were a technology that could reduce pain, treat carpal tunnel, TMJ, Degenerative Joint Disease, sleep disorders, and inflammation, all while “repairing tissue” and fighting infection and disease. What if this device was non-invasive, required no anesthesia, and was wallet-friendly? We would all be wondering where we can access this fast, safe and effective revolutionary tool. The answer? The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse system is real, and it’s right here in Alberta at Shepard Health.
What Is The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse System?
The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse system is the most technologically advanced electrotherapeutic equipment available in healthcare today, and Shephard Health is currently the only clinic in Alberta to utilize its unique healing modality.
This unique technology is a computer-based, “feedback controlled” frequency-specific micro-current system for pain control, sleep disorders, rehabilitation, accelerated healing, and wellness.

How Does The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse System Work?
Pain, inflammation, infection, and disease all exist in an acidic cellular environment (low PH.) The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse instruments stimulate “tissue repair” at the cellular level. It utilizes a very low-voltage micro-amperage current (millionths of an ampere), which “whispers” to the affected cells putting the tissue into a more Alkaline environment (high PH.) As the body’s PH rises (becomes more Alkaline), there is an increase in cell membrane transport, ATP production, amino acid incorporation, and protein synthesis, which is required for tissue regeneration.
Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse Application has been shown to effectively treat stress, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, and Post-Concussion Syndrome. Other common conditions treated by Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse include:
- Sprains, Strains, and Tears
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Golfers Elbow, Tennis Elbow
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Thoracic Outlet Syndrome/Shoulder Injuries
- Nerve Entrapments
- Muscle Spasms
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Neck and Low Back Injuries/Disc Herniation
- Carpel Tunnel
- Full Body Detoxification
- Joint Pain
Is Electro-Acuscope/ Myopulse Safe?
The Electro-Acuscope and Electro-Myopulse technologies were developed over 25 years ago. They were the first micro-current devices approved by the FDA. The gentle current output of the Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse is meant to balance the body. There are no known side effects or contraindications.
What Are The Expected Results?
Research has shown that patients find an increased range of motion, decreased healing time, and progressive wound healing in as little as one or two treatments depending on the patient’s overall health and wellness. Subsequent treatments are cumulative in their effects and only increase the body’s healing potential.
How Effective Is The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse?
Patients who have not responded to traditional forms of electrotherapy (milli-amperage, TENS, and other micro-current) have had significant results with the Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse because of the gentle balancing effects these instruments provide.
Some other impressive benefits of Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse include:
- It does not require anesthesia
- Patients can be treated on both sides of the body at the same time if the condition requires
- Fast, safe & effective
- Decrease pain and increase function
- Noninvasive; no risk for infection at the treatment site or scarring
- Future treatment options are not limited
How Is The Wellness Treatment Performed?
A conductive electrolyte gel is applied to the skin to increase conduction from the brass pads and/or probes. The choice of pads or probes is subject to the severity of the injury. A slight prickling sensation may be felt during the treatment but will not be painful. Should probes be chosen, they will be used to trace the soft tissue while using the current to heal the affected cells. The treatment is only 10-20 minutes, depending on the severity of the patient’s condition.
