Electrostimulation has been an effective treatment for lasting pain, effectively blocking pain signals from reaching the brain by interrupting them with electrical pulses. While effective, this treatment method has long been impeded by the bulkiness of the units required to achieve it. In many cases, the freedom and quality of life of the patient are impeded, not by pain, but by the unit that eases that pain. The Freedom Stimulator from Stimwave provides an innovative solution by utilizing wireless technology to eliminate the need for wires that can interfere with your restored motion. Electrostimulation has been shown to be effective in treating pain from many sources.
Relief From Suprascapular & Brachial Plexus Pain
Patients who have undergone arthroscopic shoulder surgery have a high likelihood of experiencing long-term postoperative pain. Nearly 45% of all patients who undergo this surgery express chronic pain in the shoulder and scapula, with occasional bouts of numbness. This is due to the suprascapular nerve supplying 70% of the nerves to the joint in the shoulder. Physical therapy, muscle relaxants, NSAIDs, opioids, and other options are often applied without meaningful results. Nerve blocks have been demonstrated to be effective, but there are only so many of these you can receive. The Stimwave Freedom Stimulator has been shown to provide ongoing relief from pain while restoring mobility that allows you to reclaim your life.
Relief From Ulnar & Radial Pain
Your ulnar nerve runs the route between your hand and your shoulder and is the primary course of communication from hand to the brain. Feeling and mobility in hand are reliant on clear communication, but inflammation or compression can cause problems. Patients who experience these conditions will begin to experience tingling, numbness, and pain along the nerve. Constant use of keyboards and other electronics has led to a rise in the number of neuropathies of this type. Similar treatments to those applied for suprascapular/brachial plexus pain can be used to treat this condition but may not bring relief. The Freedom Stimulator works to ease pain and restore freedom of motion over the long-term, allowing you to regain control of your life.
Relief From Sacroiliac Joint Pain
Of all patients who experience chronic low back pain, up to 62% will find the source in the sacroiliac joint. This joint exists at the point where your lower spine and your pelvis connect, and disorders here can result in pain felt in the legs, buttocks, and lower back. Chronic SI joint pain can be extremely debilitating, and its presence will be felt at almost all points of a sufferer’s life. Typical treatments involve massage therapy, chiropractic care, physical therapy, steroid injections, NSAIDs, even joint fusion. Relief from these treatments is often short-lived. The Freedom Stimulator provides lasting relief from these symptoms.
