What is Electro-Acuscope Therapy?
The Electro-Acuscope is a sophisticated electro-therapy unit that introduces a low voltage micro-current through injured tissue and accelerates the healing process. The Electro-Acuscope is different from conventional forms of electrical stimulation (i.e. T.E.N.S, Interferential therapy, and galvanic stimulation) in that it facilitates tissue repair and promotes cell regeneration at an accelerated rate. It is an amazing treatment! It literally regenerates injured tissue by repairing damage at the cellular level. Because of its profound effects on tissue repair, the Electro-Acuscope system can be used successfully in a broad range of neuro-musculo-skeletal disorders both chronic and acute. When treating acute injuries, the recovery time is usually cut in half. In the treatment of chronic conditions, patients who had lost hope of ever finding relief are amazed at how rapid and how lasting the effects of the treatment are. In application, it is very similar to ultrasound in that it is administered by using conductivity gel and a brass probe to perform specific trigger point therapy. Each treatment takes approximately 20-30 minutes and the patient usually experiences significant relief after the first few treatments. Depending on the nature of the condition, patients require an average of 8 to 12 treatments over a 30-day period to attain maximal results.
The Electro-Acuscope works on a negative feed back system whereby it recognizes “normal” tissue and identifies specific areas of tissue damage then determines the exact frequency necessary to repair the damaged tissue cell. As the area begins to repair and the requirements of the tissue cells change, the Electro-Acuscope detects the new tissue requirements and adjusts its waveform to accommodate the specific needs of the regenerating tissue.
This therapy has been used on professional athletes for years, including Joe Montana who was treated with the Electro-Acuscope after elbow surgery, and was back on the playing field in less than four weeks. Terry Bradshaw was treated with the Acuscope for an elbow injury and went on to win the Superbowl. He claims “If it wasn’t for the Acuscope, I could not have played in the Superbowl”. It was also used on Bo Jackson after his hip surgery, and he came back to play professional major league baseball. This treatment works on many types of neurological and musculo-skeletal disorders. The results are lasting. When combined with other types specific care such as Chiropractic and/or Neuro-Cranial Restructuring, the results are generally permanent. Cost for the Acuscope treatment is $400 for a series of four visits, $700 for a series of eight visits and $1000 for a series of twelve visits.
At our office, we use a specific approach to achieving wellness. We incorporate the most advanced and successful techniques in Chiropractic and complementary therapy enabling us to provide our patients with the most promising hope of getting well.
