-itis; the medical definition of inflammation

  • bursitis
  • arthritis
  • colitis

When the body is injured a sequence of events is initiated that leads to the repair of the injury site. The first stage in this process is inflammation which is followed by tissue healing and repair.

What is the Inflammatory Response?

Inflammation is the body’s natural response that occurs immediately following tissue damage. It’s main functions are to defend the body against harmful substances and to promote the renewal of normal tissue.

What are the signs of Inflammation?

The inflammatory reaction is normally shown in the body by 5 distinct signs:

  • Pain
  • Swelling or Edema
  • Redness
  • Heat
  • Loss of function

How can we help?

Overview of Healing with micro-current

Using our technology we treat the area affected for just under an hour.

Pain, inflammation and muscle spasms often result when muscles, ligaments or tendons are injured. The circulation in the injured areas is effected adversely. There is an accumulation of lactic acid and other waste products in the tissues. This slows the healing process.

The Acuscope and Myopulse simultaneously measure and balance the abnormal electrical resistance in injured tissue. The electrical conductance of the injured tissue is examined and compared to a preprogrammed parameters for healthy tissue. When electrical conductance is outside the normal, healthy range, the instruments change the wave form, frequency, intensity and polarity to restore the tissue integrity to promote healing.

The Myopulse eliminates inflammation; the Acuscope promotes healing in joints to promote the growth of cartilage and synovial fluids.

There is little or no sensation because micro-current energy is similar to the energy inside the body. Micro-currents are one-millionth the strength of household current. They are compatible with the body’s bio electrical communication system and support the self-healing feedback mechanism already present at the cellular level. The effects of micro-currents on the healing process has been documented in the scientific literature for many years.

When this energy is introduced into the cells, circulation, lymphatic drainage, waste product removal, cellular metabolism improve. The flow of other forms of biological energy similar to chi or vital force is accelerated. Acidic waste products are flushed from the tissues and the body’s healing powers are accentuated. This results in an accelerated healing response at the cellular level, leading to reduction of pain and improved function.

What our clients have to say about their treatments

“I am one of the directors of a construction business, where I am normally office based. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I was forced to work on site. Unfortunately I was involved in an accident on-site where I shattered my tibia and ankle joint on my left leg. My leg was that badly damaged that I had to have surgery, where they inserted metal plates, bolts and pins to save my leg. I was told by the medical professionals that I would have a limp for the rest of my life. I heard about the new technology that Advanced Healing Therapies use. Initially I was a little skeptical, but based on my long-term prognosis from the medical profession I was open to try anything that would assist in my recovery and would enable me to walk properly again, and regain my previously active lifestyle. After speaking to Advanced Healing Therapies, I decided to give it a try. After two treatments I noticed a real improvement in not only the level of inflammation, and the overall movement in my leg, but it had also accelerated the healing of my wound and scarring. I have now had a total of five treatments and my leg has returned to normal size and I have regained a full range of movement. During this time I had improved enough to stop using the becham boot and my crutches that I was told I would be on for three months. I have now been able to restart my martial arts and enjoy physical activities once again. I am over the moon with the outcome of my treatments and I would not hesitate to recommend this treatment to anyone who is in pain.
