Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal which houses the spinal cord controlling all of the bodies nerve function. When the opening closes or becomes occluded it is called stenosis. Stenosis can be congenital or develop because of arthritis which thickens the vertebrae and diminishes joint space, thus narrowing the opening for the cord. Degenerative disc disease reduces space between the vertebrae creating loss of joint space. Herniated or protruding discs can encroach on the cord resulting in cord compression. This compression or squeezing of the spinal cord causes pain, numbness and tingling in your upper extremities, lower extremities and trunk. It can cause bowel and bladder function, and weakness in the arms, legs, hands or feet. These symptoms can be incredibly debilitating diminishing your quality of life and ability to function. Stenosis is diagnosed by MRI and can be a chronic condition which cannot be cured. The pain from stenosis has shown to be effectively treated with the Calmare pain treatment device. One study by the Mayo clinic showed a 91% reduction in symptoms.
HOW IS STENOSIS TREATED?
The Calmare machine is an FDA cleared pain therapy device providing non invasive, drug free treatment of chronic neuropathic and oncological pain. It is being utilized in top research hospitals, cancer centers, military hospitals and private pain clinics worldwide having successfully treated thousands of patients. “Scrambler” therapy uses electro cutaneous nerve stimulation applied to the affected area via pads. These provide stimulation overriding the pain and creating a no pain signal along the nerve pathway. This becomes the dominant signal the brain receives changing the pain signal it had been receiving. The brain adapts to this pain free message sending a no pain signal back to the site using the same nerve pathway. Repeating this process for 45 minutes with consecutive treatments can give the patient significant or total pain relief without the use of harmful narcotics or surgery. The relief can be immediate with pain diminishing in intensity and frequency after the first session and can last for months to up to a year. Booster treatments can then be administered to provide lasting ongoing pain control depending on the severity and the underlying condition. This can greatly improve the patients quality of life and get them off drugs and medication. This biophysical rather than biochemical approach removes the risk factors from opioids and their addictive power. Calmare therapy provides a technologically advanced drug free pain therapy that has shown to have a high success rate with no risk.
