Pain… We have all had it or at some point, we will all have it. Sometimes taking two Advil, using ice or resting takes away that pain and we can return to our normal activity. But, what about those times where it does not help. What about those times where it lingers for days, weeks, months or in some cases has been going on for years. It starts to consume your life. We often find that people are living with pain for way longer than they should be. They have changed their lives, stopped certain activities or have become used to using medication on a daily basis. Well what if there was another option? Would you like to go back to running, bike riding or even just walking in the neighborhood? What if we could decrease your recovery time from surgery?
Alpha-Stim is a unique pain management solution that provides Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET). This machine delivers a low-level electric current that has been proven to assist with pain management. It can be helpful for chronic, acute and post traumatic pains. The Alpha-Stim M machine has the ability to treat directly at the site of concern and has ear clips that delivers Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES). CES can relive common co-morbidities such as anxiety, depression and insomnia.

In one study done on post-operative ACL repairs, it was found that patients who received MET had significantly less pain than those who did not have the MET. In another study done on women with Fibromyalgia, anxiety and tender points decreased when using CES vs a sham unit.
