Restoring Health, Soundness and Performance 
Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint. In the UK, around 10 million people have arthritis. It affects people of all ages, including children. 
Types of arthritis 
 
The two most common types of arthritis are: 
osteoarthritis 
rheumatoid arthritis 
 
Osteoarthritis 
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis where it often develops in adults in their late 40s and over. It affects the smooth cartilage lining of the joint, meaning that when the cartilage roughens and thins out, the tendons and ligaments have to work harder. This causes swelling and discomfort around the joint. 
 
The most commonly affected joints are those in the: 
hands 
spine 
knees 
hips 
 
Rheumatoid arthritis 
Rheumatoid arthritis affects often starts when a person is between 40 and 50 years old. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the body’s immune system targets affected joints, which leads to pain and swelling. The outer covering (synovium) of the joint is the first place affected. This can then spread across the joint, leading to further swelling and a change in the joint’s shape. This may cause the bone and cartilage to break down. 
 
Symptoms of arthritis 
The symptoms of arthritis you experience will vary depending on the type you have. 
 
This is why it’s important to have an accurate diagnosis if you have: 
joint pain, tenderness and stiffness 
inflammation in and around the joints 
restricted movement of the joints 
warm, red skin over the affected joint 
weakness and muscle wasting

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.
