Pulstimulation Treatment (PSTIM™)
** Sorry, but we no longer offer this service. 1-January-2017 **
PSTIM™ is an FDA approved pain treatment program that involves placing a discrete seven-gram electrostimulation device behind the patient’s ear. It is battery powered and controlled by a microchip and applies quickly and painlessly in minutes. The device provides a flow of continuous low-frequency electrical pulses to specifically targeted nerves on the outsides of the ears to relieve specific types of pain. These pulses provide peripheral nerve stimulation over nine weeks and for four continuous days at a time. These pulses induce the body to release endorphins which help relieve pain. Patients usually experience at least 50% reduction in pain after initial treatment.
