What is the P-STIM?
The P-STIM is a micro-stimulation appliance for pain therapy that is worn comfortably behind the ear. Controlled by a microprocessor, it delivers small low-frequency, electrical pulses transmitted to the nerve endings in the ear. This stimulation results in a release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers.
The P-STIM stimulates blood circulation and allows for continuous pain therapy without the use of drugs or surgery.
How is it administered?
The P-STIM pointer is used to locate three points on the ear that are rich in nerve endings. The P-STIM device is then connected at these key points.
P-STIM treatment begins when the battery-powered, adhesive electrode is activated to stimulate the nerve endings at the connected positions on the ear.
P-STIM provides safe, steady electrical impulses over a period of four days and offers the patient a high degree of comfort and mobility.
What to Expect
The P-STIM is typically worn for four days at a time. Every three hours while worn, the P-STIM delivers a small electrical pulse. The pulse can feel like a mild tapping. For most patients, this tapping sensation diminishes over time.
The P-STIM weighs just seven grams and is hardly noticeable. While undergoing treatment, you may continue your regular activities, though patients should keep the device from getting wet, as this can damage the P-STIM.
What does P-STIM treat?
P-STIM can help patients with acute and chronic pain conditions. The P-STIM device is FDA-approved for the treatment of chronic pain, including:
- Neck pain, back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain
- Arthritis and joint pain including Spine Osteoarthritis, Hip Osteoarthritis, Arthritis of the Cervical Spine, Arthritis in Hands, Wrist
