Your chiropractor and medical team at Camelback Medical Centers in Phoenix and Scottsdale are committed to helping you overcome pain. That’s why we collaborate on providing chiropractic care and medical solutions that resolve injury and chronic pain as close to the source as possible. For some patients whose condition warrants, we provide FDA-approved neurostimulation treatment for pain relief.
How Does Neurostimulation Provide Chronic Pain and Injury Relief?
Neurostimulation interrupts pain signals to your brain by electromagnetically stimulating specific points on the back of your ear. Your Camelback Medical Centers doctor programs settings on a small neurostimulator that we carefully tape to the back of one of your ears. It generates small electrical impulses that stop pain signals before they reach your brain—stopping it before your brain can register the pain. Instead of pain, you may feel simple, welcome relief from your chronic pain or injury; some patients experience a gentle massaging sensation along with the relief.
This is a great option for many people who need chronic pain relief to manage their daily lives, but for whom other treatment options may have proven difficult, or may take a longer time to provide lasting relief. The key is that we want you to feel pain relief now so that you can still enjoy life while your doctor and chiropractor collaborate on longer-term treatment plans.
How Does a Neurostimulator Work?
At Camelback Medical Centers, we use the small, convenient ANSiStim™ device. During this remarkably simple outpatient procedure, your Camelback Medical Centers doctor will attach the neurostimulator to the back of your ear. Tiny wires in the device attach to specific points in your ear. Your doctor activates the device and the tiny wires immediately start delivering impulses that interrupt pain signals to the brain. Your injury or the site of chronic pain may still be sending those signals, but your brain simply won’t receive them.
Is Neurostimulation Right for Me?
Neurostimulation is a very safe and effective treatment option for chronic pain and injury relief. It is, however, contraindicated for patients with pacemakers or implanted defibrillators. The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for neurostimulator implantation is to talk with your chiropractor and doctor at the Camelback Medical Centers location closest to you.
