What is MicroVas?
MicroVas is a therapeutic electrical stimulation.
What is it used for?
It is used to treat small vessel disease and neuropathy in the feet and ankles.
Electric currents are sent through the foot ankle and lower leg in order to stimulate the nerves and muscles to contract. This increases blood flow. The increased blood flow helps to heal the damaged parts of the nerves and stimulates tiny blood vessel regrowth. Microvas can strengthen the area and decrease pain substantially.
Does MicroVas hurt?
No it does not, patients report feeling a tingle. You come into the office with a book or tablet then sit and relax until your treatment is complete.
Does my insurance cover it?
Typically, it is covered by insurance.
It is recommended that you come 2-3x a week for about a month.
