MicroVas Therapy

elderly feetMicroVas (Micro-vascular) therapy is a type of treatment that aims to stimulate blood flow to the feet. People suffering from diabetes often have poor circulation in their legs and feet. This, coupled with peripheral neuropathy can lead to wounds known as diabetic ulcers. Peripheral neuropathy occurs as a result of damage to the nerves. In diabetics, the nerves are damaged by high levels of blood-sugar.

You may have poor circulation or peripheral neuropathy if you have the following symptoms:

  • cramping in your legs
  • cold feet
  • numbness or tingling
  • swelling in legs or feet
  • slow healing wounds
  • pain in legs or feet

MicroVas therapy for treating poor circulation in the legs and feet involves electrically stimulating muscles in a pulse-like fashion. The patient sits comfortably as pads are attached to the affected areas and a digital current source triggers contraction of the muscles. In addition, the nerves, arteries, veins, and lymph vessels are stimulated. Most patients only feel a tingling sensation during the treatment. Micro-Vas therapy is completely non-invasive and has been shown to be a useful way to treat both diabetic and non-diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
