Nerve flossing is a technique used to stretch and release specific nerves that are either compressed, entrapped or developing scar tissue.
During nerve flossing, one end of a nerve is pulled while keeping the other end of the nerve relaxed. This stretching of the nerve frees it from entrapments or adhesions along the path of the nerve. Nerve flossing is often performed for both upper and lower body extremity nerves.
The Electro Acuscope & Myopulse System is an electrotherapy treatment that was registered with the FDA in 1978. It meets the requirements in the category of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). It has unique features using feedback-driven micro-current in waveforms compatible with living tissue.
There are two parts to the system. The first is Acuscope and the second is the Myopulse. The Myopulse, companion instrument to the Acuscope, gently stimulates connective tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) delivering electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) in feedback-modulated micro-current sinusoidal (sloping) waveform patterns identical to that produced by contractile tissue. Reducing spasm and inflammation, restoring range of motion, and strengthening tissue damaged by traumatic injury, even in acute and chronic cases, the Myopulse can potentially produce improvement.
Together these two incomparable instruments comprise the most technologically advanced and effective neuromuscular treatment system available to health care practitioners today. As the only self-regulating electro-therapeutic micro-current devices on the market (feedback signal processing; e.g. the tissue impedance input continuously controls and adjusts the waveform output), this system is used for a wide variety of applications such as the acceleration of tissue repair and pain and stress management.
