Ordinary, common TENS devices (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) devices are used for pain relief by sending a milli-amperage blast of electricity to temporarily block or disrupt the transmission of the pain signal, preventing it from registering in the brain. It is a temporary analgesic, and may actually be detrimental. On the other hand, Myopulse micro-current works on a cellular level to aid in the activation of the body's natural self-healing process because of its close proximity to our own body's level of electricity. When the body has been injured or somehow impaired at a particular site, bio-electricity is disrupted. Introducing appropriate micro amperage currents can help restore normal signal conduction and electrical balance. Milli-amperage TENS disrupts neurological function; micro amperage Myopulse accommodates and restores nerve signals to normal levels.

Micro-current is electricity in millionths of an ampere; ten-thousandths of a milli-amp. Because micro-current is on the same scale of electricity as that which the body produces within each cell; it is physiologically compatible. it is now being referred to as "Bio-Identical Electrical Stim".

Myopulse treatments have the effect of pain relief, it increases the speed of wound healing, hastens the regeneration of injured connective tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia); it stimulates lymphatic flow; and relieves myofascial trigger points, knots, spasms, and tightness. Treatment helps to speed-up naturally occurring self-repair (healing) processes both by bioelectrical adjustment of specific areas of damaged and/or disrupted tissue, and generalized Nervous System stress reduction.

  • relieves both chronic and acute pain
  • orthopedic injuries and post-operative recovery times shorten
  • post-polio syndrome and other neuromuscular disorders have been shown to be responsive.
  • myofascial, muscle, tendon and ligament damage repairs more quickly - natural face lift!
  • reduces swelling and inflammation
  • improves soft tissue regeneration
  • calms nerves, reducing anxiety     

Micro-current is sub sensory and cannot be felt while it is being delivered because there is not enough current to stimulate the sensory receptors. Traditional electrotherapy units such as TENS, Interferential and Galvanic deliver a significantly higher level of current. Perceived as tingling and often stinging, hot and burning, these other devices can tetanize, cause muscle contraction, eventual fatigue and severe irritation, whereas micro-current cannot.

Micro-current increases ATP production by 500%. ATP is a molecule configuration from which our body produces energy, and it is found in every cell of all living tissue. In a study done by Ngok Cheng, M.D. entitled "The Effects of Electric Current on ATP Production, Protein Synthesis and Membrane Transport", it was demonstrated that ATP production increased five times with currents from 50 uA to 600uA. With currents exceeding 600uA, ATP production began to reduce and with 1000+ uA which is the traditional milliamp range, ATP production was no longer evident. Micro current was also shown to improve absorption of amino acid ions (sodium, calcium, potassium etc.) into the cells and help transport metabolic wastes out of the cells by normalizing (repolarizing) cell membrane potentials.

When applied to injured tissue, micro-current supports the natural flow of bio-electricity, allowing cells in the traumatized area to regain their capacitance, improving movement of electrons. Trauma affects the electrical potential of the damaged cells. After the initial immediate phase of self-repair, electrical potential diminishes; an injured area exhibits higher electrical resistance than the surrounding tissue. This leads to decreased conductance through the injured area, and decreased cellular capacitance , frequently leading to incomplete self-repair and often prolonged (chronic) inflammation. When micro-current is applied, cellular activity reawakens, resistance is reduced, which eventually will reestablish normal impedance values. The Myopulse helps to initiate and perpetuate the many biochemical reactions that occur in tissue healing.
