How Does MicroVas Treat Neuropathy

An FDA approved noninvasive electrical stimulation device that delivers a High Voltage Pulsed Current (HVPC) to targeted areas within the body. The device causes blood to pump more efficiently through microcirculation, therefore increasing tissue oxygen levels and accelerating the healing process. 

On the micro level, studies have shown that following MicroVas treatment, it has been shown that abnormally functioning nerve receptors normalize. Even more exciting is the type and amount of normalizing nerve receptors (nerve receptor in general is the part of the nerve that get the signal and passes it along to make things happen )which include nociceptors for sensory function, proprioceptors for position and tense sense, motor endplates for motor function.

Furthermore, in addition to improvements in the nerve receptors, MicroVas has been found to stimulate abnormally functioning nerve axons to improve conduction and function and has been associated with axon remeyelination  (for those of you who don't know, axons are the highway down which nerve messages from receptors are relayed, myelin is the protecting coating of axons and is needed for signal travel down the axon to occur properly). On a larger level, MicroVas treatments have also been shown to stimulate reflex pathways in the spinal cord and influence the Central Nervous System affecting memories in the Cerebellar system. 

So what does this all mean??

It means a great deal! In addition to treating the symptoms of neuropathy that I mentioned above, a vast number of nerve related disorders may see improvement if treated with MicroVas.  It means that patient's with Multiple Sclerosis may be able to regain strength and perhaps walk again. Phantom limb pain after amputation may be extinguished. Symptoms of Restless Leg Syndrome can be improved, Radiculopathy from Nerve compression injuries can now be improved.

The research findings are remarkable because that we have an option for treatment that doesn't just mask the symptom, but rather treats the cause of the symptoms. MicroVas treatment is exciting and hopeful because it is there not solely to help or improve the symptoms of the disease, but rather to treat underlying causes of these diseases and perhaps reverse them. This reversal in damage is a very exciting and new concept. 

Our patients want and need more. Our patients want to live pain free, not just a few symptoms free with some drowsiness on the side. Family Foot & Ankle Specialists are determined to make sure you get better. Each patient is unique and therefore treatment protocols must be able to adapt to the patient and to add new research and findings when necessary.  MicroVas therapy is a phenomenal addition to our family of more. Don't suffer in pain call us to see if this is your MORE.
