Chronic Numbness and Paresthesia Can Be as Disruptive as Pain
An alarming number of Americans live with chronic pain. According to the National Institutes of Health, It is one of the most common causes of long-term disability, and it affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. Many people experience pain all of the time and the rest of us experience pain some of the time.
Pain, or hyperesthesia is clearly a big problem in our country. But did you know that paresthesia, and numbness, is also a devastating condition?
Numbness and paresthesia (described as a pins and needles feeling) can be caused by a number of things, including:
Tumor in the spine or brain
High blood pressure
And even high levels of vitamin D or other vitamins
Numbness can affect your everyday activities in a way that significantly reduces your quality-of-life. If you have numbness in your feet, for example, it feels like part of your body is actually missing. Where most people feel their feet making contact with the floor, some do not experience that sensation. This can make it incredibly difficult to walk – more so, perhaps, than if you experienced pain while walking.
Alpha-Stim® is a fast, safe, and effective treatment for all types of pain, and because it balances the nervous system, it treats numbness and altered sensation (paresthesia) as well. Alpha-Stim is a handheld, FDA cleared medical device that delivers Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) directly to the site of your pain or numbness using two handheld Smart Probes. Relief is long lasting and often immediate.
After using the probes, you can also treat with Alpha-Stim’s Earclip Electrodes, which painlessly deliver Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) to your brain. Alpha-Stim’s patented waveform enhances the effect of your MET session, and also treats anxiety, insomnia, and depression.
Since it is not a drug, there is no risk of addiction or lasting side effects. Alpha-Stim is available by prescription in the United States and over the counter in other countries.
Whether you suffer from pain, numbness, or altered sensation, the disruption to your life can be enormous. But Alpha-Stim can help you feel better fast, so you can do all the things you want to do. Get started today or give us a call at 1-800-FOR-PAIN.
