Lakewood Ranch Medical Massage has introduced the Dolphin Neurostim unit into the list of available toys (I mean tools, of course) to help knock your socks off (uh, help give your body the stimulus it needs to help start healing more efficiently).
(I’m so excited about this, can you tell?!?)
Here is the explanation their website gives:
Designed to treat chronic and acute soft tissue pain and scars and adhesions by applying concentrated microcurrent impulses to trigger, motor, and acupuncture points, providing quick and effective pain relief for a long list of medical conditions.
What that means in English:
The Dolphin units use small amounts of very specific electricity to help you feel and function better. It can help with tight, stiff, and sore muscles, as well as scar tissue and adhesions that are causing problems after injuries and surgeries.
My patients have absolutely loved the units so far and it is working hand-in-hand with class 4 laser and manual therapy treatments. (Pun intended!)
In addition to helping with stiff and sore muscles and scar tissue, the units have been shown to help three major markers of health improve: Vagal Tone, Heart Rate Variability, and Cortisol levels.
“Vagal Tone” is a newer buzzword in the healthcare industry. We’re discovering that the health of this large nerve affects our entire bodies and makes a huge impact in how we feel. The Dolphin MPS units have been scientifically tested and shown to increase vagal tone.
Heart Rate Variability is another phrase you’ll be hearing more and more about. The Dolphin MPS units have shown (again, in third-party scientific testing) to decrease heart rate variability.
The third marker of health that this device has been shown to influence is one you most likely have heard of: Cortisol levels. Cortisol is a stress-related hormone with inflammatory tendencies. Microcurrent sessions with the Dolphin unit lowers cortisol.
