FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
SOME COMMON QUESTIONS
Are there any side effects?
None have been found. Occasionally, some discomfort (headache, nausea or soreness) may be felt after treatment due to new activity in muscles, which may not have been used for a long period of time or from toxins being liberated faster than the body can rid itself of the impurities. Fortunately these side effects are rare and usually occur, if at all, following only the first one to three treatments, while your body is adjusting to increased self-repair activity.
For most people, the side effects are simply feeling better in various ways after the treatment.
Are there medical studies?
Yes! Over the past 40+ years many papers have been written, including, double blind studies, case histories and peer revied articles.There are also 7 associated Nobel Prizes as well as a number of published studies in modern medical journals. These are available upon request.
Can my body really heal itself?
Of course. If you cut your finger, it heals automatically. If you burn the roof of your mouth, it heals automatically. Going to the bathroom (i.e. eliminating waste) is your body’s way of healing itself. Electro-medicine is no different. All the tissues and organs in our body are comprised of a vast number of cells with carry an electrical charge. electricity (remember positive and negative ions in chemistry?) When tissue is healthy, the ideal electrical charge allows substances to move in and out of the cells freely. When the correct electrical charge is disrupted due to injury or infection, the ebb and flow of electricity is compromised. Your body will work to fix that problem, but sometimes it needs help.
How does it work?
Two highly-sophisticated, NASA-engineered instruments — the Electro-Acuscope and Myopulse — establish two-way communication between their own computer-assisted circuitry and the area(s) of the patient’s body being treated. Using a biofeedback-modulated delivery system, they measure such things as tissue conductivity, which is generally very slow or blocked in areas of chronic pain and abnormally high areas of acute pain and inflammation. They measure the capacity of the damaged tissue cells to hold a charge, and treat the area by introducing gentle micro-currents of electricity identical to the body’s own electrical currents. This increases or decreases the electrical activity of the affected tissue as needed so that the cells can increase metabolic activity and more efficiently do their work of self-repair.
How long does the relief last?
The results are cumulative that is, the benefits accumulate over time. This is true both for pain relief as well as for returning to normal use and unrestricted range of motion. Once this state is achieved during treatment, the relief will last longer and longer with each additional treatment.
The goal, of course, is long term pain relief. After a series of treatments, many people have permanent pain relief and never need another Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse treatment for the same condition. For some, relief requires an additional series of treatments to achieve and maintain complete resolution.
How many treatments will I need?
As expected, that depends on the overall condition of the patient and the nature of the injury. With traditional daily treatments, acute conditions typically require 3-12 treatments; chronic conditions may take anywhere from 20 to 30). Most athletes transition to an accelerated recovery plan of multiple short treatments each day after 1-3 evaluation treatments.
Is it safe?
Absolutely. The science of AMT, supported by 7 Nobel Prizes, is simple: Our whole body runs on electricity. Every cell holds a charge just like a battery. Whenever there is any kind of pain, injury or disease, there is an interruption to the electrical properties of the tissue. AMT corrects that interruption, triggering the body’s own natural healing mechanisms without needles, drugs or invasive actions.
Is the treatment very expensive?
No. Compared to the cost of other pain management programs such as medications taken over a long period of time and/or surgery, it is quite reasonable.
My pain seems to be stress related. Can AMT help me?
Yes! This therapy is renowned as highly effective stress management, especially when combined with healthy lifestyle habits. It can relax the nerves and give relief to muscles and myofascial trigger points, knots, spasms, tightness, improve circulation, stimulate lymphatic flow and help you learn how to release tension.
What is AMT and electro medicine?
The power to healâ€¦ literally! Acuscope Myopulse Therapy (AMT) is computer-assisted, biofeedback-modulated, Microcurrent Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation (MENS) which works at the tissue level to speed tissue repair and healing. This safe, non-invasive, drug-free, needle-free therapy is best known for its unparalleled success in treating professional athletes and their injuries over the past 40 years. AMT is one of the most advanced healing technologies available today, showing remarkable results for many kinds of ailments and disorders, such as fibromyalgia, tendonitis, bursitis, rotator cuff problems, sprains, muscle spasms, headaches, knees injuries, tennis elbow, arthritis, stress and postoperative tightness and pain.
What will the treatment feel like?
During AMT treatment, it is most likely that you will feel nothing but relief. Most patients report only a gentle pulsing vibration as well as sensations of general relaxation, warmth and soothing release in the area being treated.
Who uses the AMT Therapy? (a.k.a. What do others have to say?)
AMT Therapy is currently being used by professional athletic teams, sports medicine practices, hospitals, and by doctors and therapists in every field of healthcare throughout the world. According to widespread publicity, many outstanding athletes have been significantly helped by Electro-Acuscope treatments. Joe Montana (49ers) and Terry Bradshaw (Steelers) are two star football quarterbacks who claim that the Acuscope kept them in the game and both (although their famous throwing arms were injured) went on to win Superbowls. The AMT Therapy is also very effective with animals, especially equine athletes (horses in competition), and is being used extensively in veterinary rehabilitation therapy.
Why haven’t I heard of this?
While it may seem like a well-kept secret, professional athletes, sports medicine professionals, equine therapists and chiropractors have embraced AMT therapy for more than 40 years. The general public may not be aware of it simply because there has been no savvy marketing campaigns like Gatorade, Nike or Advil to raise awareness. Plus, it doesn’t fit easily into the modern medical model — each treatment takes 60-90 minutes — and insurance reimbursement has proven to be a challenge at some levels.
Will I need to stop taking my other medicine?
No. You should not discontinue your prescription medications. We will monitor your improvement and contact your primary care physician to see if you can gradually discontinue your medications. Meanwhile, it is crucial that you increase intake of Magnesium, all B vitamins especially B12, iron, Folic acid and Vitamin C.
Will my insurance cover these treatments?
This varies with the type of policy you have. Most private insurance companies will cover a portion of TENS and/or Electric Stimulation therapies.
