Patient Avoids Amputation of Both Legs with Help of Alpha-Stim

Patient Avoids Amputation of Both Legs with Help of Alpha-Stim

While most people (research shows 9 out of 10) find relief from their anxiety, depression, insomnia, or pain when they use Alpha-Stim®, some stories are especially remarkable. What follows is a testimonial from Adrian Walker, whose pain had become so unbearable that he wanted to have both of his legs amputated. Offered narcotics by his physicians, Mr. Walker sought a less risky alternative. He discovered Alpha-Stim, and says the results were remarkable:

“This device has truly changed my life. No words can express those feelings. I can only hope that this message will make you a little less skeptical. I was diagnosed with Bilateral Compartment Syndrome in 2015, had fasciotomies on both legs that unfortunately left me with severe nerve damage. I had exhausted every avenue in terms of treatment only to be let down and told my only option was to take narcotics which I refused, I shouldn’t have to tell you why. Ultimately ended up wanting to have my legs amputated. Being told by every orthopedic surgeon that they will not amputate for pain, and hearing the excuse “What happens when you need to go to the restroom at night?” left me extremely frustrated because my question to them was “Am I in pain, or not?” I ended up getting treatment at the Center for the Intrepid in San Antonio, Texas who I learned about the Alpha-Stim from. I was extremely skeptical and in disbelief, low and behold here I am today with both my legs, and in 80-90% less pain because of this little device.”

If you suffer from acute, chronic, or post-traumatic pain, and do not want to take pharmaceuticals, there is another way; there is Alpha-Stim. Alpha-Stim is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device that uses Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) to treat pain precisely where it hurts. Treatment is fast and easy, bringing lasting relief in mere minutes; and since Alpha-Stim is portable, you can treat your pain at home, at work, or wherever it is convenient for you. (Alpha-Stim should not be used while operating a motor vehicle.)

Mr. Walker’s success with Alpha-Stim is not the exception to the rule. In a study of severe pain patients, Alpha-Stim significantly reduced pain by an average of 71% after only five treatments.[1] Additionally, Alpha-Stim has been shown to be more effective at treating pain than vicodin and oxycontin.

Alpha-Stim, which also treats anxiety, depression, and insomnia, is available by prescription in the United States. For veterans or current Service Members, Alpha-Stim can be obtained at many of the nation’s VAs and DOD facilities. Outside of the U.S., Alpha-Stim is available over the counter.

If you can relate to Adrian Walker’s frustrations with chronic pain and the struggle to find appropriate and safe treatment; if you, too, have found yourself asking “Am I in pain, or not?”; if you are ready to experience life without pain, then why not get started today?
