Director of Johns Hopkins Medicine’s palliative medicine Tom Smith, explains the effects of neuromodulation, giving an example of a typical patient – a person suffering from high intensity pain, which on the scale from 1-10, is classified as 9. The pain is spread up and down the right side of patient’s body, followed by chills, then burning sensations, itching and stabbing. By using neuromodulation, doctors can relieve these symptoms by applying two electrodes to the patient’s skin and running the electric stimulus through them for about half an hour. As soon as 10 seconds into the treatment, a patient will again feel close to normal.
Currently, one illness is a leading cause of mortality worldwide – cancer. However, with the latest advancements in modern technology and medicine, we have gained an access to more sophisticated diagnostic methods that allow detection of cancer at an early stage and, consequently, increasingly effective treatments and ever-increasing numbers of cancer survivors.
In the light of Scrambler Therapy pain treatments showing high success rates, even more scientific studies are being conducted examining this treatment. It doesn’t come as a surprise that the studies resulted in a long list of pain conditions that can be effectively treated with Scrambler Therapy – lower back pain included.
Scrambler Therapy has proved to be highly effective in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy.
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that results from nerve damage outside of the spinal cord and brain. People with this condition often suffer from pain, numbness, and weakness, typically in their hands and feet, and occasionally in other areas of their body.
