Chronic Pain Therapy

We all have experienced pain at one point in our life.

But, what is pain?

According to the International Association for the Study of Pain, the definition of pain is “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage.”

Everyone has their own definition and causes of pain. For some it may present itself as stomach pain after spicy food, sensitivity after drinking something cold or even appendix pain– known as acute pain, but for other it might be more prolonged to the point that pain is the only things they have experienced throughout their life – known as chronic pain.

Both Chronic and Acute Pain are common conditions that many therapists and practitioners treat on a daily basis.

What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic Pain is a condition where one experiences pain for more than 6 months. When Acute Pain becomes Chronic, it requires treatment as a nervous system condition rather than a symptom relating to local tissue damage.

This pain type usually involves lower back pain, prolonged knee pain , neck pain and sciatic nerve pain.

What truly differentiates chronic pain from acute is not only its long time duration but also the lack of evidence associated with it.

This means that while someone suffering from short term or acute pain may show identifiable tissue injury either by bruising or on an x-ray; however the same would not be the case for chronic pain sufferers.

These individuals live their entire lives being told that they are completely fine and they need to get over it by those around them, no matter how much pain they might be in.

Why is Chronic Pain Management So Important?

Chronic Pain is one of the most common reasons adults seek medical care.

A recent study shows chronic pain might be one of the most common reasons adults seek medical care. Moreover, it has also been linked to:

Chronic Pain Management education is generally not offered in medical schools, and most physicians and therapists have little to no formal training in it.

In 2016, an estimated 20.4% of adults in the United States (50 million) suffered from Chronic Pain and 8% of adults in the United States (19.6 million) had high-impact chronic pain with a higher prevalence associated with advancing age.

The Treatment of Chronic Pain

Chronic pain, which is most commonly associated with nervous system disorders, can be costly to treat as it requires constant visits to the hospitals and labs.

This ends up being overwhelming for the patient as well.

So much so, that according to a research, funded by the Institute of Medicine Committee on Advancing Pain Research, Care, and Education:

This has lead the health care industry and researchers to find modalities that provide patients with a significant and lasting reduction in pain that is not only timely but cost-effective as well. Times like these require new integrated pain managements systems that allow the patient to treat their pain sitting in the comfort of their home.

What is MPS Therapy?

Micro-current Point Stimulation Therapy is a new integrated pain management that uses the Dolphin Neurostim device.

It is applied using one or two of the Dolphin Neurostim devices simultaneously, depending on the condition being treated.

The Dolphin device locates and delivers concentrated DC micro current to therapeutically active acupuncture and trigger points for the purpose of reducing sympathetic stress in the body. This relaxes muscles, improves circulation and lymph flow, and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.

MPS Therapy actually provides simultaneous stimulation of the nervous, muscular and endocrine systems, making MPS Therapy highly-effective and desirable for treating many chronic and acute soft-tissue pain conditions.

How does MPS Work?

MPS mimics the therapeutic effects of traditional acupuncture by integrating several potent pain-relieving therapies (acupuncture and neural therapy) into a device that’s easy to use, clinically or at home.

Pain physician Jay P. Shah, MD, of the National Institutes of Health, says he used MPS to relieve his own pain, and has used it daily over the past 15 years to treat his patients’ neck, shoulder, back and other soft tissue pain.

Dr. Shah has also studied acupuncture and says that MPS offers many of the same advantages in relaxing muscles to ease pain.

“It’s a wonderful clinical tool for patients in pain,” Shah says. “As a doctor, when you give pain medications you really are not getting to the underlying cause of the problem, which is often the upregulation of the nervous system and muscular contractions.”

MPS Therapy helps reduce and eliminate the negative influence of:

  1. Spine & Sacrum activation of stress/pain
    B. Scar/trauma influence on fascia/stress/ pain
    c. Jaw influence on stress/pain activation
    d. Fascial injury influence on stress/pain
    d. emotional influence on stress/pain activation

MPS Therapy may be most effective when used in combination with a variety of awareness, movement and manual therapies to help create long-term positive outcomes.

Why MPS Therapy?

According to recent scientific literature, Dolphin Neurostim MPS Therapy may be most effective when used in combination with a variety of other awareness, movement and manual therapies to help create long-term, positive health and wellness outcomes.

MPS Therapy effectiveness on chronic pain is proven to reduce:

  • Back Pain (-72%) (JACIM),
  • Neck Pain (-80%) (JCAM),
  • Body pain (-63%) (Med Acup),
  • Chronic Post-Surgical Pain (CPSP) (-73%) (IJCAM) and
  • C-Section related chronic pain (-82%) (OGN).

The Dolphin Neurostim is so effective for pain reduction, that combining it with massage therapy almost doubled the pain relief outcomes than massage alone (46%vs78%) (JYPT).

Similar outcomes are found in physical therapy (45%vs73%) – Rehab Report

Can You Use the Dolphin Neurostim At Home?

MPS Therapy is designed with both the professional and the novice in mind.

As such, for the novice, there is no prior knowledge of acupuncture or medical anatomy required to apply the device to MPS protocols.

For the professional, MPS Therapy protocols are easy to adapt into any clinical setting or time frame. MPS Therapy can serve as an invaluable tool to all health professionals in their efforts to substantiate their current treatment regime in order to produce superior patient outcomes.


Dolphin Neurostim MPS Therapy is, hands down, the best treatment modality in integrative pain management existing today. It produces superior outcomes over traditional pain therapies, with the added bonus of obtaining better, longer-lasting outcomes, in a fraction of the typical time spent in traditional treatments.

It is no wonder that MPS Therapy is now the first choice of treatment for chronic pain by over 40,000 therapists, and hundreds of hospitals worldwide.

Since its development, MPS Therapy has been taught to 50,000+ physical therapists, massage therapists, occupational therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, physicians, and other allied health professionals.

Over the past 31 years, tens of millions of patients worldwide have been treated with impressive outcomes, often where other interventions have failed.
