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.
Lower Back Pain Causes and Symptoms
Lower back pain is known to occur due to the weakening of joints, muscles and tendons that surround the spine. If lower back pain lasts longer than twelve weeks, it is considered chronic. Typically, lower back pain is limited to sacroiliac joints, femoral and inguinal regions, and hips, but it can also manifest with knee and toe pain resulting from constant nerve root stimulation. As the patients who suffer from back pain become more limited in their activities, many of them develop anxiety and depression.
A recent study investigated how patients suffering from depression and chronic lower back pain respond to Scrambler Therapy. The patients underwent daily 40-minute Scrambler Therapy treatments for 10 days and their depression and pain were measured using the Beck Depression Inventory and the Visual Analogue Scale. After ten sessions of Scrambler Therapy, measurements showed significant decreases in pain and depression scores.
How Scrambler Therapy Helps Relieve Lower Back Pain
The Calmare machine that is being used in Scrambler Therapy treats the sensation of pain as a piece of information. The machine “scrambles” sensation by creating an artificial, non-pain signal, and sending it to the brain using the same pathways – the A-delta and C-fiber nociceptors. Neural channels register these artificial signals as natural after they have been transformed into appropriate electronic wavelengths and encoded in numerous combinations (?).
This method has proven to be particularly successful in patients suffering from intense forms of chronic and acute pain, such as cancer pain, who have not responded to conventional pain relief methods like injection therapies, pharmaceuticals or even surgeries.
The main difference between the Scrambler Therapy and other existing pain treatment methods is that Calmare Therapy is non-invasive, completely devoid of harmful side-effects, safe to use and effective in 80% of cases.
Calmare Scrambler Therapy provided at the Baltimore Ketamine Clinic successfully treats pain in the following conditions: chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN), back pain, sciatica, post-surgical neuropathic pain, phantom limb syndrome, postherpetic neuralgia, intractable cancer pain, brachial plexus pain, CRPS (RSD), post-surgical nerve lesion neuropathy, trigeminal neuralgia, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, and pudendal neuropathy.
