Microcurrent Point Stimulation Therapy
Pain & Scar Treatment
What is MPS therapy?
MPS Therapy is the application of the Dolphin Neurostim to therapeutically integrative protocols. MPS applies brief, concentrated DC microcurrent impulses to specific treatment points to relax muscles, calm the nervous system and release endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. When MPS is applied to pathology influencing all three systems — nervous, muscular and endocrine — making MPS therapy effective for treating many chronic and acute soft-tissue pain conditions.
MPS Therapy - Integrative Pain Management Techniques
The current therapeutic/medical approach to treating chronic pain emerges from the central-peripheral (CNS-PNS) human nervous system model, which often treats pain symptoms with localized therapy. MPS Pain Therapy is an autonomic nervous system (ANS) based chronic pain therapy that treats the entire body using original protocols for the purpose of reducing sympathetic nervous system stress for muscular relaxation and pain relief such as back pain, lower back pain, neck pain, and arthritis pain.The theoretical underpinnings of MPS Therapy are based on combining the “therapeutic pearls” of acupuncture, osteopathy, integrative dentistry, neural therapy with modern neurology with Dolphin microcurrent.
MPS Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy
Scars are the mark of injury to the skin. They can be external or internal, depending on the cause of the wound. Most wounds (except for minor ones) will leave a scar, appearing after the wound is completely healed. The new scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue, and it is generally less flexible than the surrounding skin.
Type of Scars
There are different types of scars. The type of scar that forms depends on the age of the person, skin type, skin condition, heredity and the severity of the wound. Some of the most common types are:
Hypertrophic scars (raised and often red)
Keloidal scars (much like hypertrophic, but spread far beyond the boundaries of the original injury)
Atrophic scars (these leave depressions in the skin)
Contracture scars (flat, tight scars that constrict movement, often caused by burns)
Acne scars (pitting caused by the stretching of pores)
How Do Integrative Pain Management Techniques Work?
Dolphin Neurostim locates and applies concentrated DC microcurrent to therapeutically active points (acupuncture & trigger) for the purpose of relaxing muscles, calming the nervous system and releasing endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. The Dolphin is engineered to detect and treat these active points with great scientific precision & potency, providing stimulation of all three systems at once — nervous, muscular and endocrine.
Dolphin is designed for the novice in mind, so there is no prior knowledge of acupuncture or medical anatomy required to apply the Dolphin to MPS protocols. (However, educational seminars are available for those who wish to master this potent therapy).
MPS protocols are the ultimate in integrative pain protocols. The power of integrating all these healing techniques into one protocol means MPS can produce far superior outcomes over traditionally pain therapies (in a fraction of treatment time). MPS protocols are easy to adapt into any clinical setting or time frame. No wonder the MPS Therapy is now the first choice for treatment of chronic pain by over 40,000 therapists and hundreds of hospitals worldwide.
MPS has been a remarkable success in the fight against chronic pain. The results are so impressive using this approach that complete or substantial relief (60-85%+) from pain often occurs within 1-3 applications.
Most patients require 2-10 treatments for lasting outcomes, with some chronic patients requiring ongoing daily or bi-weekly applications. MPS protocols may be quickly individualized to any patient’s needs and applied within 3-20 minutes. MPS Therapy is reported to be significantly more effective than many other therapies offered on the marketplace, often providing the only “breakthrough” many pain patients have ever experienced.
MPS can serve as an invaluable tool to all health professionals in their efforts to substantiate current treatment regime and as an invaluable pain tool for superior patient outcomes.
MPS Therapy has also been proven highly effective in the area of scar and adhesion treatment.
How MPS Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy Works
Often, scars result in a tightening of the surrounding tissue that can restrict movement or function in the body. These restrictions not only affect the joint, limb or surrounding area, but they can affect the underlying organs, too. This is because scar tissue has the potential to spread in any direction, including internally, throughout the body. Fortunately, releasing the scar can yield powerful results, which can improve mobility, diminish complications and decrease pain often associated with deep scars.
MPS (Microcurrent Point Stimulation) is the method used to release scars and is especially effective in treating large, deep, painful scars. The term ‘release’ refers to the releasing or relaxing of contracted and tightened tissue. Coupled with manual release work (a specialized type of massage), MPS Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy significantly reduces the restrictions of scar tissue.
In general, this treatment is completely painless. The use of the microcurrent probes, on the tissue surrounding the scar, creates a healing, inflammatory response. Dead cells and scar tissue are broken down by the body; circulation is increased to the area; and the lymphatic system excretes the dead cells. You will see visible changes in the appearance of the scar and gradually will notice a reduction in the tightness and restriction felt at the site of the scar. The duration of treatment will depend on how long you’ve had the scar, how deep it is, and the severity of any pain you may be having. There is no expiration date on scar release. MPS has helped a Vietnam veteran retain the use of his leg, some forty years after his multiple gunshot injury. Equally, burns and scarring from childhood have been successfully released, with accompanying beneficial results, several decades after the time of the injury.
Since the body’s fascial system is interconnected, a restriction or adhesion in one area will often affect other areas and result in compensation patterns and pain. When a scar has been released there is no longer a restriction in the flow of energy, blood circulation and lymph drainage. The body can then complete the healing process.
Whether from injury or surgery, scar tissue can been significantly improved and softened and circulation and function can be greatly improved with MPS Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy.
