The Time Is Now To Stop “Managing” Pain

Category: Blog

Many people suffering from chronic pain believe that their options for relief are limited to the “management” of pain through harmful narcotic pain pills and/or or high-risk invasive and expensive surgeries.  The good news is there are other options that obviate the need for “management” and instead actually successfully promotes the body’s ability to heal itself, with no pain pills, no surgeries, and no downtime.  We are pleased to offer an alternative — Stivax for pain management.

Neurostimulation

Neurostimulation refers to the process of utilizing low-frequency electrical pulses to interfere with the behavior of the nervous system. By interrupting the ways in which pain signals are communicated throughout the body, sensations of pain may be effectively reduced and in some cases eliminated completely.

What Is Stivax Neurostimulation Therapy?

Stivax neurostimulation therapy is a small device that is attached behind the ear, that includes a battery pack placed underneath  the collarbone. The arrays behind the ears are specially placed by a physician to ensure proper stimulation of the correct nerves.

The pulses delivered by the Stivax neurostimulator often go unnoticed by the user. These impulses interrupt the vagus nerve, a key neural pathway that influences a wide variety of bodily functions, and is critical to parasympathetic activity. When interrupted, the right electrical impulses may interrupt the transmission of painful sensations and regulate nerve cell communications, addressing conditions such as:

  • Chronic Back and Neck Pain
  • Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Zoster
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease Neuropathy
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
  • Post-Surgical Pain
  • Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Depression and Insomnia (increases endorphins)
  • Various neuropathies
  • Traumatic Nerve Injuries
  • Migraines
  • Herpetic Neuralgia
  • Refractory Angina
  • Traumatic Nerve Injuries
  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
  • Occipital Neuralgia
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Post-amputation Pain
  • Lateral Femoral Cutaneous Neuropathy
  • Other conditions that have failed conventional therapies

Why Neurostimulation?

Many chronic pain patients are frustrated by the complications and risks associated with long-term use of opiate painkillers, and/or high-risk and expensive surgeries, and are ready for other alternatives. Neurostimulation may be solution they are seeking. Stivax neurostimulation offers:

  • A non-invasive implanted neurostimulation device that is generally covered by Medicare and other insurance payors;
  • Positive success rates; one study found that over 85% of patients experienced a reduction in pain of at least 50%;
  • No harmful or long-lasting side effects
