If you have foot complications due to poor circulation, call the office today or schedule an appointment online to learn more about MicroVas.
MicroVas, or MicroVascular Therapy, uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate blood flow, most often in the feet. The physical therapy procedure is FDA-cleared and triggers nerve fiber circulation in the feet to restore feeling and decrease nerve pain in people with peripheral neuropathy. People with neuropathy experience decreased and dysfunctional sensation in their nerve endings.
MicroVas technology was initially intended to treat Navy SEAL divers suffering from hypothermia but has exceptional potential in treating your nerve condition.
MicroVas is a pulsating electromagnetic field treatment. The energy from MicroVas, consisting of biphasic faradic square and ionic waves, stimulates blood circulation by raising tissue oxygen levels. It creates deep muscle contractions to repair tissue damage. As a result, new capillaries form, leading to further tissue growth and repair of existing tissue to speed up the healing process.
MicroVas technology also accelerates drainage from the lymphatic system, your body’s natural waste-removal system. This reduces swelling and improves your body’s immune response.
People with diabetes aren’t the only patients who benefit from MicroVas treatments. People with the following may also have poor circulation and benefit:
MicroVas is also a potential treatment for sports injuries and diabetic wounds. MicroVas can restore function in those with chronic pain due to poor circulation – even to those who experience difficulty walking or standing because of neuropathy.
When you come in for a MicroVas session, the technician places pads 180 degrees from one another in groups, directly onto your feet and lower legs. The ionic impulses pass through the lower body, which stimulates your neuromuscular system and triggers the venous muscle pump.
The doctors at Ankle & Foot Specialist of N.J. recommend between a total of 20-36 sessions. These are delivered twice per week in sessions lasting about 45 minutes. Men and women typically experience improvements in their neuropathy symptoms for 6-8 months following MicroVas treatment.
