Microcurrent is equivalent to the amount of current that is naturally generated by the body. Micro-amp stimulation has been proven to have the ability to stimulate cellular physiology and growth. It has been scientifically proven (Cheng et al 1982) that when using the level of microcurrent stimulation that ATP production (or energy production) was increased by approximately 500%, and amino acid transport was increased by 30-40%. It was also proven that when milli-amperage was utilized (the traditional TENS unit commonly used in sports), ATP generation was depleted or not found, amino acid uptake was reduced by 20-73%, and protein synthesis was inhibited by as much as 50%. Studies have found that higher voltage electrical stimulation devices inhibit healing, whereas lower amperage promotes healing.
As a Performance and Recovery Specialist with professional athletes, Molly Wells applies scientific research and data into her program. Traditional athletic care has heavily used high voltage electrical stimulation devices (such as TENS units and other high voltage modalities) to block pain. As they have been scientifically proven to cause detriment to tissue, and deplete the body's ability to produce energy for healing and recovery, it is thought that the use of these devices have contributed to the rise in injuries in professional sports. An athlete needs to be prepared to play by introducing a level of current that the body produces naturally, and one that can assist in the increase of energy production, not deplete the body's essential resources. By understanding this concept and utilizing the biofeedback system of the instruments, Molly Wells can precisely monitor each athlete's state, requirements, and accurately apply each session.
There are numerous studies that prove the significance of microcurrent. In today's sports industry, athletes require a higher level of care in order to sustain the demands of their sport. Traditional care has allowed the level of injuries to rise, while athletic care has wavered away from providing true resolution in order to block pain. High voltage modalities have been proven to inhibit recovery, while microcurrent has been proven to optimize the body's ability to repair itself.
Athletes require elite care to lead to optimized energy production, performance, and recovery. Microcurrent supplies the necessary energy for athletes to sustain the demands of their sport, and to recovery faster when injuries occur.
Elite athletes require proper energy production to sustain the demands of their training and performance regimens. In order to safely and effectively optimize energy production (ATP production), the body needs to be replenished of the natural level of current (microcurrent). When microcurrent is combined with biofeedback functions, which is the result of the Acuscope and Myopulse instruments, athletes are able to receive individualized treatments to meet their body's needs.
Overstimulation from high voltage modalities have been proven to inhibit recovery, and also cause damage and detriment to the tissue. An example of a commonly used high voltage modality is the TENS unit. This form of high voltage current has been proven to decrease or stop ATP production/energy production in the body, while microcurrent therapy (Acuscope Therapy) has been proven to optimize energy production by up to 500%.
If an athlete is treated with a traditional TENS unit they are essentially being put into a state of deficiency as they enter the field, predisposing them to injury. When an athlete is treated with Acuscope and Myopulse instruments, their bodies are being better prepared for the requirements of their bodies with replenishing them with the needed energy that is necessary in order to decrease the risk of injury, and optimize performance.

In the sports industry, the main focus is performing at the highest level possible for each athlete as individuals, and collectively in team sports. However, the need to focus on assisting athletes in optimized recovery is essential for them to reach longevity in their careers.
When the Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy System is used in sports, the player's body's are able to accelerate the recovery rates after training and performance. The faster the body can dissipate inflammation, replenish the energy sources, better absorb nutrients, and sustain a healthy circulatory system, the faster it will recover and be prepared for the next event. With the precise and accurate abilities of the Acuscope and Myopulse instruments, the athletes receive exactly what they need at the time of every session whether in a state of preparation or in a state of assisted recovery.
As the level of injuries rise each year, the level of performance and demands of sports increase and expand. Many athletes lose important contracts, crucial play time, and other opportunities that are career changing due to injuries. Many injuries that occur are preventable, and the traumatic injuries that can't be prevented can be better cared for to ensure the athlete's return to play. Not only do we want an player to return to play, it should be the goal of all sports professionals to ensure that their career continues at a higher level than before the injury, and doesn't end as a result of one.
The goal of Elite Athletic Consultants through the P.R.O.11® Program is the extend the life of athletes careers through thorough, advanced, specific, individualized, safe, and effective care. Our results are proven, not only through the highly sought after Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy System, but through our proprietary protocols with the understanding of what athletes require.

The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy System is the most advanced technology available in the sports industry. As many fads pass through sports, this therapy system has remained a constant and reliable source of athletic care. This is the only therapeutic modality that offers both diagnostic/evaluative capabilities in conjunction with treatment options. When a sports professional has the ability to obtain digital readings through the biofeedback system to evaluate the state of the tissue, create a "guide" through the body mapping out areas of cellular dysfunction, and then able to formulate the appropriate treatment program, the athletes receive the benefits that match their heightened level of performance and achievement.

Athletic care has to meet the unique requirements that players demand in order to sustain their level of talent and performance. Therapeutic protocols that are used for the general public do not meet the needs of the professional sports industry, or even for those who live an active lifestyle in that matter. Traditional modalities that are used to block pain are causing more detriment to the industry, and the need for therapeutic care that is capable of providing true resolution and optimizes the level of play in the industry is not only necessary, but it is needed.

Acuscope Therapy has a successful history in the sports industry, dating back to the 1984 Olympics. Since then the technology has advanced, and the P.R.O.11® Program offers the most updated and advanced used of this therapy system that has proven itself in today's sports industry. In addition to its proven results, the P.R.O.11® Program offers proprietary protocols that are currently being used in today's sports industry.
