The P-STIM Pain Breakthrough
Tired of living with pain? Millions of people suffer from a lifetime of body pains, stemming from headaches, neck and back issues, arthritic joints, fibromyalgia, and more. In the past, drugs were the main solution to mask chronic pain. Now, with P-STIM, your pain may be relieved in just a few short treatments and without any use of narcotics.
What is P-STIM?
Point Stimulation Therapy (P-STIM) is an alternative to narcotic pain management.
The P-STIM treatment combines proven Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation with auricular acupuncture to relieve patients of chronic pain. The small, wearable P-STIM device is designed to administer continuous pulses of a low-level electrical current to the ear through three selectively placed, acupuncture needles. The treatment has been proven to stimulate the release of endorphins in the body, simulating a number of neuro-chemical and physiological conditions known to relieve chronic pain and depression.
Easy (And Fast) Non-Narcotic Treatments
P-STIM can deliver pain relief quickly and easily through a small device worn on the ear. The treatment begins with placement of the P-STIM device on your ear during an office visit, which takes ten to fifteen minutes. You then wear the P-STIM device for the next four days, with electrical stimulation occurring every three hours. Upon completion of the four-day treatment, you easily remove the device from your ear.
The average patient requires four to six treatment sessions to alleviate their pain, but depending on your pain type and level of pain, more treatment sessions may be necessary.
Occasionally patients may experience dizziness or nausea from overstimulation of the nerves, symptoms that are easily relieved by removing one to two of the auricular needles.
