MPS Therapy (Microcurrent Point Stimulation)
MPS (Microcurrent Point Stimulation) Therapy is an FDA approved therapy that combines the principles of acupuncture and neurology with microcurrent stimulation. MPS Therapy taps into our body’s own internal pain relieving system, the endorphin response.
MPS Therapy is successfully helping many pain patients control their pain levels and resume normal functioning in their lives again!
How Does MPS Therapy Work?
MPS Therapy applies concentrated DC micro-stimulation to produce an “acupuncture” response that “releases” muscle tissue that impinges nerves and causes joint articulations (pain). This action permits increased reinnervation of affected neural pathways, allowing patient pain levels to be substantially decreased, often instantaneously.
This multi-pronged approach to the body’s nervous and musculoskeletal system is the reason why MPS Therapy works so well on pain. Clinically, the intention of MPS Therapy is to isolate the root causes of a patient’s pain by applying micro-stimulation to acupuncture points that relate to different muscles, tissues and systems (neurological, segmental, limbic, myofascial, etc).
Microcurrent Point Stimulation treatment uses a device that combines the principles of acupuncture, massage, electrotherapy and physical therapy. MPS Therapy is based on the belief that pain usually has several different sources and, therefore, requires a multi-system approach to produce long-term effects on patients. It uses a seven-step approach to treat almost any pain condition, with the requirement that the points be treated in order. The therapy uses a device or electrode wand that produces a stimulation that relaxes muscles and calms the nervous system. In addition, it relaxes contracted muscles to relieve pressed nerves, and also releases endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers.
Microcurrent devices have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of “the symptomatic relief of chronic (long-term) intractable pain and as an adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical traumatic pain problems.” Microcurrent Point Stimulation is similar to T.E.N.S. devices with the difference that it uses direct current stimulation, as opposed to the alternating current stimulation applied by a T.E.N.S. device. MPS also uses current in a much lower range than a T.E.N.S device.
