Chronic pain affects an estimated 80 million Americans. It also causes many unpleasant side effects, like stress, marital and family problems, insomnia, anxiety/depression, weight gain and fatigue. As a result, we see so many alternative treatments for pain management-including acupuncture, chiropractic, massage and pain clinics. Renewed interest in the wellness field has resulted in what is now a multi-billion dollar industry. Despite the size of this industry, and the expertise involved, patient results are often unsatisfactory.
Dr. Bruce developed the Micro-current Point Stimulation Therapy (called MPS) in 1992. A new technique utilizing concentrated, low frequency, AC current stimulation to acutherapy points, that combine the principles of traditional acupuncture, massage, and physical therapy.
What does the MPS device do?
The MPS is similar in appearance to a digital thermometer. It produces a stimulation or current that relaxes muscles and calms the nervous system when applied to the skin. It also promotes the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain killers.
Emotions can take a toll on our body, anxiety and depression only make the pain cycle worse.
Emotional distress can have a negative effect of a persons ability to cope with pain, and in some cases, may be the direct root cause of that pain. MPS Therapy has been used by many people and they find it is one of the most powerful pain management techniques.
The thought process is that once the physical components of pain have been eliminated, the emotional aspects of pain are much more easily accessible, and the body is much more receptive to releasing locked in emotions.
We tend to believe that once the physical pain is under control, the body is more receptive to releasing the emotions that are locked inside.

- Healthy blood flow greatly contributes to the natural healing process. MPS units can help increase or decrease circulation to the area of injury, very much like the application of ice or heat to swelling.
MPS is non-invasive and can be tolerated by patients. It can be administered usually in 5-15 minutes In conclusion MPS is an effective treatment for pain reduction as part of a physical therapy program.
