MPS - Microcurrent Point Stimulation
Point Stimulation (MPS) combines the principles of acupuncture and
modern neurology with direct microcurrent stimulation.
MPS neuropathic therapy is a hybrid modality used in the treatment neuromyofascial pain. In its most basic form, MPS therapy applies brief, staged, concentrated
stimulation to points relating to different therapeutic systems. Through a series of systematic and reproducible protocols, the treatment of root causes of soft tissue pain can be completed with a high degree of accuracy.
condition, the therapist applies concentrated direct current (DC)
micro-stimulation to points that isolate specific nerves, muscles and
tissues involved with your pain or injury. Applied by a non-invasive point
stimulator, MPS current produces a low frequency
acupuncture-like response that has been shown to:
*Release muscle tension and joint restriction
*Balance functional asymmetries seen during activities
*Decrease pain and tissue sensitivity
*Release endorphins producing general relaxation and natural pain relief
*Decrease abnormal muscle tone and tension
*Increase reinnervation of neural pathways
MPS structurally/mechanically and manually realigns
the body and then inspects for paraspinal tissue changes associated with spinal nerve
root impingement. Dermatomes, meridians, trigger, motor, and acupuncture points
relating the patient’s injury/pain are then integrated into step-by-step protocols
in order to determine and eliminate root causes of a patient’s pain condition.
has been a remarkable success in the fight against chronic pain. This therapy can be individualized to any
patient's needs and applied non-invasively as part of your bodywork session.
MPS Therapy has proved successful in the treatment of back and neck pain,
whiplash, TMJ, fibromyalgia, neuropathies, migraines, headaches, joint pain, sports
injuries, carpal tunnel, post operative radiculopathy, neuropathy, plantar
fasciitis, frozen shoulder and shoulder pain, tennis elbow and many other
neuromyofascial pain syndromes.
This technology is unsurpassed in the area ofscar release. Whether immediately post-op, several years, or even decades after surgery/injury, release of scar tissue has been shown to improve conditions presenting in other areas of the body.
