“What do you do for work?” is a question we’ve all been asked, and for good reason. Understanding what someone does for a job gives us insight into who they are. For many of us, our job is more than just a paycheck – gives us a sense of identity and purpose.

For many people, work is more than just a paycheck: it gives us a sense of identify and purpose.

If you’ve been unable to work due to a workplace injury or an accident, you know it can turn your life upside down. Not only are you dealing with physical pain and the massive disruption to your normal routine, but you are probably also worried about your finances and the impact on your family, feeling anxious about your recovery, and experiencing changes in your mood. “One-third of people who have a major injury deal with major depression afterward,” according to Charles Bombardier, Ph.D., professor and head of clinical and neuropsychology at the University of Washington. “That number goes from one-third to more than half if you have a traumatic brain injury (TBI).”

The road to recovery can seem daunting and full of obstacles. You just want to feel better, so you can get back to living your life. Sleep helps your body to heal, but if you’re in pain or physically uncomfortable, being able to get a good night’s sleep may be difficult. Dr. Robert Bolash, a pain specialist, explains, “Pain worsens sleep patterns and sleep disturbances worsen pain. It’s a vicious cycle.” In fact, up to 2/3 of patients who report having chronic pain also experience sleep issues.

Fortunately, there is a way to treat your symptoms – both physical and mental – in the comfort of your own home. Alpha-Stim® is an FDA cleared medical device that is proven to safely and effectively treat anxiety, insomnia, depression, and pain. Two electrodes clip onto your earlobes and deliver a tiny, painless current of electricity in a modality called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES.) The patented waveform restores balance to your brainwaves, making you feel better fast. To treat pain, two handheld Smart Probes deliver relief directly to the site of your injury. Treatments take just 20 minutes to conduct, but the relief is long-lasting and often immediate.

Since Alpha-Stim is not a drug, there is no risk of addiction or lasting side effects. It is safe to use in conjunction with other treatment modalities, such as physical therapy or counseling. Unlike drugs, which often require ever-higher dosages to maintain their efficacy, Alpha-Stim becomes more effective over time. The more often you use it, the better you’ll feel, and the less you’ll need it.

Alpha-Stim has been proven safe and effective in even the most challenging cases of physical and mental pain, including Veterans and First Responders. One Veteran found such immense pain relief with Alpha-Stim that he was able to avoid the amputation of both of his legs; a first responder reported finding respite from a trauma-filled life for the first time in decades. Patients and doctors alike are continually amazed by the life-changing benefits of Alpha-Stim. It is backed by decades of experience and more than 100 clinical research studies.

If you’re dealing with an accident or injury, why not treat both your physical pain and your mental distress at the same time? Best of all, you don’t have to leave the house to do it. With Alpha-Stim in your toolbox, you can manage your pain on your own schedule; you can take control of your journey to recovery. Relief is literally in the palm of your hand.

Payors

Alpha-Stim is the ideal solution for patients and payors alike. Over five years, Alpha-Stim users can save thousands of dollars compared with drugs and other treatments typically used to treat anxiety, insomnia, depression, and pain. When you consider the results that are possible with the Alpha-Stim CES device as a pain and mental health solution, as well as the safety of the therapy, it’s clear why we believe there’s no better value available.

Offering Alpha-Stim to your patients is truly a win-win situation. But don’t take our word for it: the safety and efficacy of Alpha-Stim is backed by more than 100 clinical research studies. Over 200 US Department of Defense (DOD) practitioners and more than 92 Veterans Administration (VA) hospitals use Alpha-Stim with military personnel, and a recent study conducted by the NHS found that Alpha-Stim proved to be a cost-effective choice with a savings of £540 ($680) per patient, compared to other available treatments.
