The Electro Acuscope/Myopulse was developed in 1965 and by the late 1970's was being used by medical doctors actross the U.S. In 1983 the acuscope was being used for horses, dogs, cats and other animals and introduced into the veterinary market. Electrical stimulation is used to reduce pain and promote healing by stimulating the painful area using the same electrical current as the body's cellular structure. It is believed that cells within a specific organ or tissue system communicate at specific frequencies in the microamperage range. This form of therapy has scienftific support for use in treating join, bone, nerve damage, open would healing, tendon repair, edemas, back pain and more. Electrical stimulation can additionally be useful in maintaning muscle integrity following injury or surgery.
The computer circuitry in the Acuscope read the soft tissue and determines how it will re-educate the nerves, then treats accordingly. The biofeedback on the Acuscope helps us to determine if areas we are working on are acute or chronic and how the tissue is responding to the treatment.
The number of treatments depends on the patient. Who Uses the Acuscope? The Acuscope is currently being used by professional athletic teams, sports medicince practitioners, hospitals, and by thousands of private physicians and therapists in every field of medicine throughout the world. The Acuscope is very effective on animals and is being used extensively in veterinary as well as human medicine.
How Does It Work? The Electro Acuscope establishes a two-way communication between its computer circuitry and the area of the patient's body being treated. It measures such things as tissue conductivity which is generally very low in an area of pain. It treats by introducing a gentle current in waveforms similar to the body's own electrical currents. This increases the electrical activity of the affected tissue so that the cells can begin the work of self-repair.
How much Electricity does the Acuscope Produce? The amount of electricity produced by the Acuscope is measured in microamps (millionths of an amp), an extremely tiny amount of current in comparison to the amount of electricity flowing from a wall socket. It has been scientifically proven that this level of current produces the most beneficial effect on the body's cells.
How Does the Acuscope Reduce Pain? The body (human or equine) is made up of a vast number of cells. In many ways, the cells of the body act like tiny batteries, storing and releasing energy. Each cell has a measurable electrical charge and therefore there is a constant energy flow maintained between cells throughout the electrical circuitry of the body.
When damage or trauma occurs, there is a disruption in the production of electricity and a measurable decrease in the flow of energy through the tissues involved. This condition is generally accompanied by a sensation of pain and usually results in the body's inability to readily repair itself.
During treatment, the Electro Acuscope introduces mild electrical currents into the cells of the body in order to return the tissue to a normal level of electrical activity. This process may be likened to a "jump-start" and "putting a charge" on the battery of a car. In this way, the instrument assists the body in accelerating the natural self-healing processes.
In addition to providing the body with beneficial electrical currents, the treatment causes the body to produce its own natural pain reducing chemicals called "endorphins." The immediate pain relieving results of an Acuscope treatment may therefore be considered an electro-chemical response occuring in the involved area at a cellular level.
Why are the Results from an Acuscope Treament Cumulative? By definition, the cumulative effect means that each treatment of a given area will take a shorter time and the pain relief which follows will last longer and longer. Unlike some other forms of pain relief, such as therapy with certain drugs, the body does not build up a tolerance to Acuscope treatments. In fact, just the opposite occurs. Mild electrical stimulation has been proven (Cheng, 1972) to stimulate the cells of the body to produce chemicals which are responsible for cellular energy production and may be thought of as the fuel which allows the cells to begin to repair themselves. As these chemical reactions build up, the body's response to each treatment becomes stronger and the pain relief lasts longer. With each treatment the tissues are able to repair themselves more completely. In most cases, a series of treatments leads to permanent relief or to a greatly diminished level of pain. A minimum of four treatments is required to meet the goal of successful healing.
