P-STIM at the Pain Management Institute

At the Pain Management Institute we make use of the most recent techniques for an extensive ailment that afflicts our entire society, dealing with pain and its conceivably weakening effects. Dr. Zaki Anwar, MD  who has a vast experience in the medical field, bring knowledge and compassion to the field of pain management.A case in point is his use of Point Stimulation device, also known as the P-STIM

Point stimulation is chiefly used to treat pain. The device is advised for the treatment of chronic pain, preoperative, intra operative and post-operative pain management. Meanwhile, there are future prospects of taking advantage of the same therapy for the treatment of addiction, allergy and in specific concerns of anesthesia.

Research about P-STIM

Research has shown that P-Stim stimulates the production of natural Endorphins by triggering cranial nerves that result in potential changes in the brain activities, which has been further proven with the help of an MRI. Endorphins are one of the brain chemicals also known as the neurotransmitter, that helps to transmit electrical signals within the nervous system. Two of the most common conditions that cause  release of Endorphins are stress and pain. When any of these conditions are present, Endorphins are discharged and reacted with drug receptors in the brain to mask the pain feeling

Understanding P-STIM?

The P-STIM is a tiny device devised to facilitate ear point stimulation treatment over a period of several days. Stimulation is administered by electrical pulses transmitted through three precisely positioned needles in the ear

How is P-Stim performed?

Using a pointer three points of stimulation is precisely marked. After the certain step, Dr. Zaki Anwar, MD, Pain Management Specialist at The Pain Management Institute  places tiny needles and position them on the marked points. The P-Stim is started by the use of batteries and wires, easily  connected to the positions around the ear. An electrode provokes the needles. This is the starting point of the treatment. P-Stim release restricted point stimulation over a period of several days and grants patients optimal comfort and mobility

Advantage of P-Stim over Drug Therapy

The advantage P-Stim grants over drug therapy is that the patients no longer face any of the potential side effects of the pain killers, that can be life threatening. In other words, the patients are free to spend life full of quality and utmost mobility

Dr Zaki Anwar, cautiously examines each patient for the use of P-STIM. As a matter of fact that acute and chronic pain patients have diverse needs, P-STIM can be tailored according the individual patients need

P-STIM may be helpful for any of the following conditions:

  • Migraines
