What is MicroVas Therapy?

MicroVas Therapy represents the pinnacle of ionic impulse therapy, distinguishing itself from traditional electrical stimulation methods. Unlike conventional treatments that affect only surface layers and position both positive and negative electrodes close together, MicroVas Therapy ensures comprehensive coverage. Its emitter pads, placed oppositely at 180 degrees and often in multiples, envelop the entire limb or treatment area. This arrangement, coupled with alternating directional pulses achieved by reversing polarity before each impulse, guarantees unparalleled tissue penetration, particularly beneficial for extremities.

How MicroVas Therapy Enhances Healing

MicroVas Therapy utilizes a digital current to activate neuromuscular contractions, enhancing venous muscle pumps’ efficiency. This stimulation significantly boosts blood flow and tissue oxygenation, fostering angiogenesis—the body’s natural healing and rebuilding response. By invigorating nerves, muscles, and all circulation branches (arterial, venous, and lymphatic), MicroVas propels a comprehensive healing process.

The Multifaceted Benefits of MicroVas Therapy

  • Enhanced Circulation: It significantly elevates blood flow, improving tissue oxygenation, stimulating fibroblast proliferation, and facilitating nutrient exchange.
  • Involuntary Exercise: By retraining and rebuilding muscles, it restores flexibility, range of motion, and strength, while also boosting metabolism.
  • Lymphatic Drainage: It amplifies lymphatic drainage, easing swelling, decompressing nerves, and enhancing immune responses.
  • Pain Management: MicroVas Therapy alleviates pain by blocking pain signal transmission and stimulating endorphin release.
What Can MicroVas Therapy Treat?

This therapy offers relief and healing for various foot and ankle ailments, including but not limited to:

Who Isn’t MicroVas Therapy For?

While highly beneficial, MicroVas Therapy is not suitable for everyone. Contraindications include:

  • Implanted cardiac devices (pacemakers, defibrillators)
  • Recent, unstable, or untreated strokes
  • Melanoma history
  • Active bleeding disorders or deep venous thrombosis
  • Pregnancy

Administering MicroVas Therapy

Each session spans 45 minutes, typically conducted twice weekly over four-week intervals. Post-interval, a doctor’s evaluation determines the subsequent course of action, ensuring personalized care tailored to individual response.

Addressing Neuropathy with MicroVas

Peripheral neuropathy, especially prevalent among diabetic patients, leads to nerve damage due to high glucose levels. MicroVas Therapy, by stimulating microcirculation, encourages nerve regeneration, offering a gradual yet significant improvement.
