What is the Electro-Equiscope® Microcurrent?

 

Microcurrent therapy has come to be well known for pain management, accelerated healing and also, more recently, in aesthetics for skin rejuvenation.

 

The Electro-Equiscope® is classified as a microcurrent device under the FDA category of TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). The Electro-Equiscope® is far more sophisticated than standard microcurrent or TENS unit. It is an FDA approved Class II medical instrument that has the ability to receive information via looped feedback, decipher it and adjust the current output as tissue requires. It is the only intelligent microcurrent device that delivers a focused treatment to damaged tissues for the purpose of pain management, accelerated healing and tissue regeneration.

This device is used by elite athletes to aid in returning to their sport as quickly as possible after injury. It is officially endorsed by the National Hockey League Alumni Association for the treatment of all NHL Alumni in the U.S. and Canada.

 

Across the US, the Amen Clinics, well known and highly regarded for brain imaging and rehabilitation, offer the Electro-Equiscope® as a treatment option.

How does it work?

 

Our bodies are electrical in nature. Our cells are able to hold electrical charges (like tiny batteries) via ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). ATP contributes to the active transport mechanism (sodium-potassium pump) which is when positive and negative ions move across cell walls, and thereby provide a pumping action where nutrients enter and wastes exit.

 

If tissues become damaged, mitochondria function drops and ATP (energy) levels may become deficient. Cellular functions are then compromised which leads to an accumulation of metabolic and cellular wastes (cell toxicity). Eventually cell death may result.

 

The Electro-Equiscope® serves to reboot cellular activity by providing a precise, frequency based microcurrent that serves to increase mitochondrion function and ATP production in the cells and stimulate tissues, including nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, blood and bones. It is akin to charging a battery and giving it a boost. As cell charge increases, cell function increases, metabolic wastes are removed and health is restored.

What are the benefits?

 

  • Improved cellular metabolism of injured tissues

  • Pain relief in nerves, joints, muscles, and tendons

  • Increased circulation and decreasing inflammation

  • Accelerated injury recovery

  • Increased range of motion

  • Body detoxification at a cellular level

  • Advanced healing for sciatica, tendonitis, TMJ, fibromyalgia, bursitis, carpal tunnel, headaches, back injury, and more

For what types of conditions is the Electro-Equiscope® suitable?

 

  • Injuries to muscle, ligament, tendons, bones, fascia

  • Concussions and brain injuries

  • Excess toxicity in the body, particularly heavy metals

  • Acute inflammation either from injury or insult, ie: bee sting, ant or spider bite

  • Viral and bacterial infections

Are there any contra-indications, or any conditions where the Electro-Equiscope® would not be suitable?

 

Microcurrent is contra-indicated for anyone with a medically inserted electrical device in the body, ie: pacemaker, for those with epilepsy or who are pregnant.

 

The Electro-Equiscope® powerfully detoxifies the body and serves to improve the removal of cellular wastes and toxins. So, for those who have had Botox or other subcutaneous injections, be advised that the microcurrent will remove these substances from the body. This would also apply to any medications such as analgesics, anti-seizure and chemotherapy.


 

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments required is dependent on the age of the injury and of the client, the severity of damage and whether or not the root cause of the tissue damage is addressed/corrected.

 

A minimum of three treatments is recommended to see any effect. If the injury is old, chronic or more severe, then more treatments may be required, ranging anywhere from 6 - 30 +, depending on degree of injury and severity.


 

What to expect in an Electro-Equiscope® session:

 

cumulatively: 30-90% decrease in pain and improved range of motion

  • Relaxation

  • Detoxification

  • Enhanced performance

  • Accelerated healing

Which factors contribute to successful treatment and recovery?

 

The Electro-Equiscope® helps to detoxify the body and regenerate tissues. 

 

Clients must accept responsibility for their injury and recovery. The success of their recovery will depend upon their lifestyle choices including nutrition, hydration, rest and physical activity. If they live a clean lifestyle with sufficient exercise, relaxation and stress management, recovery will accelerate.

 

And, if factors that inhibit the healing process are present, the effects of the Electro-Equiscope® will be limited. These factors include:

  • stress

  • poor diet

  • lack of exercise

  • Pesticides

  • other synthetics that we ingest on a daily basis 

  • direct trauma or repeated injury/stress to the area

 

 

Are there any post-treatment side effects?

 

The body may experience detoxification symptoms which can include:

 

  • Headache

  • Sluggishness

  • Nausea

  • Sweating/chills/ shakes

  • Increased pain in the treated area

  • Dizziness

  • Diaphoria

  • Weakness

  • Muscle spasm

  • Early menstrual cycle

The antidote is to drink lots of water, eat highly nutritious, unprocessed and vital foods, and to rest as needed.

How is the Electro-Equiscope® different from other microcurrent devices and TENS units?

 

Other microcurrent technologies including frequency specific microcurrent, along with energy-based technologies that include laser, PEMF and ultrasound are output devices that move in one direction only - into the tissue. The Electro-EquiscopeTM utilizes two way communication and the micro and pico current are the carrier wave forms for that communication, and are specific to the person and the person’s nervous system. The Electro-Equiscope® has a fixed artificial intelligent (AI) microchip that enables it to read feedback and adapt treatment accordingly. It seeks and finds impedance (electrical interference) in the body and delivers current down to the pico or trillionth of an ampere which serves to produce ATP, rather than depleting it when compared to standard Microcurrent.
