Last evening, I had a visit with my pain specialist Dr. Zaki Anwer, MD, for a follow up, for an unsuccessful pain pump trial, and he suggested that we should attempt a P-Stim trial. I merely in a great despair get on with his advice. That evening I left his pain management clinic with my head hanging on either side, with countless thoughts on my mind, this might be another failure to my ingrained agonizing. Until I was introduced to the potentiality of Non Drugged Pulse stimulated treatment. The theory behind P-Stim treatment stems from the field of Nuero modulation, which uses electrical signals to stimulate parts of the nervous system.
Dr. Zaki Anwer and his fellow members examined the theory that in chronic pain, some parts of the brain become hyperactive while other parts are exposed to inactivity. P-Stim treatment stimulate that part of the brain that vigorously controls the perception of pain.
“This is not a magic pill that makes everything go away, although it removes that barrier of pain” says Dr. Zaki Anwer, MD
If we take a glimpse at what P-Stim, is typically a small, ingenious device that is placed behind the patient’s ear and to my great surprise it weighs only seven grams. The tininess of P-Stim device keeps your flexibility and mobility out and alive.
P-Stim enhances the release of natural Endorphins
A detailed study published in the Journal of Pain and Relief shows up that P-Stim augments the discharge of natural Endorphins by switching on cranial nerves consequently bringing physiological changes in functional brain activities, and has been confirmed by MRI
Dr. Zaki Anwer, MD, remembers his experience when he first have had a trial of P- Stim -it was nearly midnight, a patient enduring severe musculoskeletal pain. The patient needed relief from the agonizing condition, he won her consent and implanted the device to the side of her head, adjoining it to four discreet prongs that he settled on and encircling her left ear near four cranial nerves closest to the superficial skin. By sending Pulse Simulation , the device interferes with the pain signals obstructing the pain
P-Stim is potential treatment for certain conditions
As Dr. Zaki Anwer, MD, considers the fact that acute and chronic pain sufferers have different needs, the P-Stim can be customized for individual patients. He performs the application with the aim to provide his patients immediate pain relief and comfort. He works with his full potential to relives certain conditions including;
- Back Pain
- Cervical Pain (neck pain)
- Sciatic Pain (lower back and leg pain)
- Cancer Pain
- Headache – Migraine, Tension, Cluster, etc.
- Post-Operative Pain
- Rheumatoid Arthritis and Joint Pain
- Diabetic Neuropathy (diabetic nerve pain)
- Sports Injuries
