New Approach for treating pain patients
Electroanalgesia (elec·tro·an·al·ge·sia) is defined by Stedman’s Medical Dictionary, 2nd Edition as:
“Analgesia that is induced by the passage of an electric current”.
Electroanalgesia is also defined by Dorland’s Medical Dictionary as:
“The reduction of pain by electrical stimulation of a peripheral nerve or the dorsal column of the spinal cord”.
Despite the obvious benefits of pharmaceutical drug therapy for pain management, undesired side effects, as well as chemical addiction problems, have created serious concerns for physicians and insurance companies.
That is why we sought the input of experienced medical practitioners and combined their ideas with advanced technology, resulting in a carefully planned and state-of-the-art medical pain management system. This advanced pain management system is user friendly and is programmed to deliver the precise dosage to treat your patients with pain with the push of a button. Dynamic medical specialties, such as Universities and clinical pain management physicians, have seen a significant change in therapeutic approach over the past decade.
Numerous controlled research investigations have directed the astute medical community toward more non-invasive medical interventions, such as clinical electoanalgesia to manage or mitigate patient pain. Electroanalgesic treatments are different from the portable TENS device (1-250 pulses per second) primarily because it uses electrical frequencies that are much higher, above 8,000 pulses per second (pps) to as high as 10,000 pps. This electrical energy is delivered deeper into the patients tissue due to a lowered skin resistance. The effect of higher frequencies is the ability not to stimulate or to facilitate the nerves, but to inhibit the pain signal.
Why not use this Technology?
More than 40 million people are affected with musculoskeletal pain, resulting in more than 300 million physician visits and costing hundreds of millions of dollars each year.
For example, low back pain is a major medical problem. Worldwide, from 60 to 80% of people will have it during their lifetime and 2% to 5% will have it at any given time. In the United States, low back pain is one of the most common problems for which people visit a doctor and is the most common cause of disability under the age 45.
In the last several years, health policymakers, health professionals, regulators, and the public have become increasingly interested in the provision of better pain therapies. This is evidenced in part by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ dissemination of Clinical Practice Guidelines for the management of pain.
