Non-Surgical Spine Center is pleased to introduce outpatient “Scrambler” therapy for the treatment of Chronic Pain to the Charleston area.
Scrambler therapy is an innovative and life changing treatment regimen for patients with limited medical options. It effectively treats chronic neuropathic pain conditions including:
- Diabetic peripheral neuropathy
- Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy
- Failed neck or back surgery pain (post-surgical syndrome)
- Spinal stenosis
- Chronic intractable neck and back pain
- Chronic radiculopathy pain
- Complex regional pain syndrome (RSD)
- Postherpetic neuralgia (chronic pain after shingles)
- Brachial plexopathy (nerve injury) pain
Scrambler technology is a non-invasive alternative to spinal cord stimulators and chronic medication management utilized at renowned medical institutions including Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Walter Reed Hospital, MD Anderson in Texas, and 17 military hospitals throughout the country.
Scrambler therapy is a safe non-invasive treatment option that provides significant decrease of chronic nerve pain without medications, injections, spinal cord stimulator implantation, or surgical intervention.
It is a breakthrough painless technology that works by sending continuous “non-pain” electroanalgesic signals via topical (EKG-like) leads from the area of discomfort effectively “scrambling” the prior chronic pain signal. Scrambler technology disrupts the chronic pain cycle and restores normal brain interpretation of pain via a process called “plasticity” resulting in long term efficacy for most patients.
Patients determine if they are a candidate for scrambler protocol pending results of an initial five day outpatient treatment trial. Most patients respond favorably and experience significant pain relief after only two weeks of non invasive treatments. A twenty-four (24) month scrambler therapy agreement may then be implemented which includes the initial two week treatment protocol plus an additional TWO YEARS of painless “Booster” Scrambler sessions if needed. Cost is a nominal 250 dollars per month.
Non-Surgical Spine Center is one of only nine outpatient physician practices in the United States offering this patented and FDA cleared therapeutic option for chronic nerve pain conditions. We are currently accepting patients for physician evaluation to determine candidacy.
