Is MicroVas Treatment Right for Me?
Our staff at Northeast Spine and Sports Medicine will perform a thorough exam using digital imaging, asking questions about your symptoms, and reviewing your medical records to determine if MicroVas treatment is right for you.
How Does MicroVas Therapy Work?
Once your doctor determines it’s a good choice, we’ll have you take a seat near our MicroVas machine, which is generally connected to your thigh, calf, ankle and/or foot for each treatment. This is a painless process that involves electrodes (attached via adhesives which look somewhat like bandages) which are themselves connected to leads (cords that send electrical stimulation from the machine to your body). Once you’re connected and comfortable, the device’s power is increased slowly, stimulating blood flow through the areas that need it most. Each MicroVas treatment typically lasts from 10-20 minutes, and most patients describe the process as painless. Some patients report a tingling session in their feet, which is normal due to increased blood circulation. Patients typically visit us a few times a week until symptoms improve, usually experiencing relief right around the fourth treatment session.
