Electro-Acuscope & Myoscope
Patient: Ginger. White tail spider bite December 2016.
When antibiotics and veterinary treatments were showing no signs of helping the leg, and with it ballooning to the point she could barely walk, homeopathy, intensive acuscope treatments, drawing poultices applied daily over the bite area, and manuka honey and raw garlic in her food were the only thing that I consider saved her life. She was on Devils Claw concentrate twice daily for pain, and as an anti inflammatory. It took 3 months of intensive work, but she has not relapsed in the past 4 months and appears quite sound.
About the Acuscope.
Energy flows constantly between all cells throughout the electrical circuitry of the body. When damage or trauma occurs to living tissue, there is a disruption in the electrical capacity of the involved cells and after an initial surge, there results a measurable decrease in the production and flow of energy through the electrical network of the involved tissues. This condition is generally accompanied by pain in the area and often results in the body’s inability to completely repair itself.
Thus, lengthy rest periods and inactivity are often prescribed in order to attain eventual restoration of normal function.
Because the original problem heals faster, chronic tendonitis can be prevented and these other compensating areas will not have to endure the increased load as long. Acuscope Therapy is a modality applied primarily for pain relief, to improve soft tissue function, and to increase range of motion. The Acuscope differs from other electrical stimulation devices in that it delivers its treatment in micro-amps . Most nerve stimulation devices (ordinary TENS) produce milli-amperage current designed to bombard the tissue and simply block pain signals from reaching the brain. The Acuscope, in contrast, generates only the level of current required to gently encourage nerve and muscle fibre to return to conduction of normal electrical impulses. In contrast also, ordinary TENS devices provide only temporary relief, whereas a series of Acuscope treatments has a cumulative, long term healing effect.
The Acuscopes’s Therapeutic capabilities go well beyond the treatment of horses which are “off” or just “not quite right”.
Acuscope Therapy is not just a“tune up” for performance. Its advanced and sophisticated technology has been used extensively over the past twenty years, by and under the supervision of many veterinarians to deal with the most serious injuries and acute life threatening conditions of the equine athlete.
In numerous recent scientific studies, micro-current stimulation has been proven to have a profoundly beneficial effect on living tissue. Micro-amperage (below 2 milliamp) is the naturally occurring level of current generated by cells throughout the body.
In technical terms, some of the benefits of micro-current stimulation at the cellular level are: opening of voltage-sensitive calcium ion channels, normalizing cell membrane potential, restoring the sodium pump function, enhancing protein synthesis, and increasing ATP production. With this in mind it is easy to understand why supplying the kind of current naturally occurring in healthy tissue promotes regenerative metabolic activity.
The Myoscope is the companion instrument to the Acuscope. It is designed to deal specifically with connective tissue, muscles, tendons and ligaments. The acuscope stimulates via the CNS, accessing large areas of the body during treatment if required. The myoscope is generally used on one muscle specifically, ensuring the fibres heal in correct form and not matted in scar tissue. Ideal for tendon and ligament injuries.

Both these instruments are equally effective on humans, dogs, cats, and essentially any living animal.
