Acuscope & Myopulse System

What Is 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 amazing healing modality.

The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse is a computer-based “Feedback Controlled” frequency-specific microcurrent system for pain control, sleep disorders, rehabilitation, accelerated healing, and wellness.

How does it 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. 

Common Conditions Treated by Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse

  • Sprains, Strains, and Tears
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • 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 
  • Neuropathies
  • TMJ
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Full Body Detoxification
  • Joint Pain

CES application can also treat: 

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Post-Concussion Syndrome

Is it safe?

The Electro-Acuscope and Electro-Myopulse were developed over 25 years ago and were the first microcurrent devices approved by the FDA. Due to the gentle current output of the Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse, it is meant to balance the body, there are no known side effects or contraindications.

What are the expected results? 

Depending on the patient's overall health and wellness, 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. 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.

Benefits of Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse:

  • 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
  • Cost-effective

How is the 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 decided upon 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 timed from 10-20 minutes depending on the severity of the patient's condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cells in the body produce a minute electrical charge. When an injury occurs, the micro-currents are disrupted. Blood flow is affected and after a short time, there is a resistant barrier around the injury. Because natural tissue repair is often incomplete, pain signals are generated to the brain; there may be lingering inflammation at the original site and tissue with low energy in the surrounding areas. The Acuscope can detect this and is programmed to deliver an optimal “boost” to the cells depending on their specific condition.

Using an operational program similar to a self-guided missile system, the micro-current targets damaged cells and gently encourages their return to normal conductivity by correcting their electrical signal. The effect of Acuscope micro-current stimulation is to restore cellular metabolism. The outer covering of a cell is called the cell membrane, which loses its electrical potential when damage occurs. Once restored to a normal level of charge, ion exchange begins again – enhancing the movement of nutrient intake and excretion of built-up waste products/toxins. Tissue regeneration begins when this happens and it does so at a staggering speed.

This current is administered through small probes applied to the skin’s surface. Treatment is non-invasive, in comparison to medication, surgical procedures, and needle acupuncture. Micro-current stimulation goes directly through the area where the pain is located; it also is applied to boost nerve conductivity from the brain to the spinal nerve roots and out to nerve endings in connective tissue. In trans-cranial micro-current therapy with the Acuscope, the ear clips or headbands are used, the effect causes the brainwaves to mimic an alpha pattern while in treatment mode. This enables the patient to experience relaxation, release tension in the mind, distributing relaxing waveform signals throughout the body via the nervous system. As a result, this also promotes the body’s ability to achieve tissue self-repair.

The Electro-Acuscope is different from conventional forms of electrical stimulation in that it facilitates tissue self-repair and promotes cell regeneration at an accelerated rate. The way it works is unlike ordinary milli-amperage nerve stimulation devices (ordinary TENS) which are only used to block pain signals from reaching and registering in the brain (like an anesthetic or analgesic drug). The Electro-Acuscope generates only the level of current required to gently encourage nerve fiber to return to conduction of normal, healthy electrical impulses. This causes cells of the body to “wake up”, increasing the production of the chemical ATP which is responsible for cellular energy production.

A series of treatments have a positive cumulative effect, like boosting the electrical charge of a trillion tiny batteries. The effect on most pain syndromes is remarkable and over 30+ years in medical practices has proven to be long-lasting.
