Have you ever experienced pain in your neck or shoulders and wondered how to effectively treat it with your Alpha-Stim®? In the following video, Dr. Jeff Marksberry, Vice President of Science and Education at Electromedical Products International, Inc., provides instructions, tips and tricks to treat your pain using Alpha-Stim Smart Probes.
Evaluate your pain before, and from time-to-time, during, and after each treatment. If you’re judging on a scale of 0 (no pain) to 10 (maximum pain), keep track of how your number on the scale fluctuates as you use Alpha-Stim to treat your pain.
- 0 = No pain
- 2 = Mild pain; only aware of pain when focused on it. Considered nagging and annoying but only slightly interferes with activities of daily living (ADL).
- 4 = Tolerable pain; can be ignored somewhat.
- 6 = Distressful pain; interferes significantly with ADL.
- 8 = Severe pain; cannot concentrate or do anything but simple tasks.
- 10 = Disabling pain; unable to perform ADL.
Note: Because Alpha-Stim uses such a low level of microcurrent, many people do not feel anything at all, even at the maximum current level. Do not be concerned if you cannot feel the current; this is perfectly normal and your perception of the current will not affect the results.
Alpha-Stim is a handheld, prescription medical device that is FDA cleared to treat pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression. Unlike other prescription medications, Alpha-Stim does not have any adverse side effects, and most patients see fast and effective results.
The Alpha-Stim® M provides Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) uses a low-level electrical current with a patented waveform, featured only in Alpha-Stim technology, that has been proven to assist with chronic pain management, acute pain management, and post traumatic pain management. Alpha-Stim has an extensive safety record, with few side effects (less than 1%) and considerable scientific evidence of the significant results patients may achieve.
