PSTIM (Pulse Stimulation Treatment) is a revolutionary device for non-drug pain management. PSTIM is an FDA approved pain treatment program blending conventional acupuncture therapy with modern technology. PSTIM is a small, discreet device which is placed behind a patient’s ear and weighs only 7 grams.Once installed, PSTIM™ provides a steady current of low frequency electrical impulses to specific acupuncture points located in the outer ear. PSTIM delivers effective, continuous pain relief in a safe and personal manner.
PSTIM is FDA approved for treatment of:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Arthritic and Joint Pain
- Shingles (Post-Herpetic Neuralgia)
- Cancer Pain
- Depression and Insomnia
PSTIM is also used successfully to suppress appetite and decrease body weight, and to treat tobacco and other addictions.
PSTIM enhances the release of endorphins – natural pain reducing hormones. Studies indicate that after initial PSTIM treatment the majority of chronic pain patients report at least 50% reduction in pain and further accumulation of pain reduction in subsequent treatments.
PSTIM is battery powered, and controlled by a microchip. PSTIM is minimally invasive and is applied quickly and painlessly. Once nerve access points are identified, tiny titanium acupuncture needles attached to the device are placed on these access points.
After initial placement of PSTIM for 3 days 1Hz stimulation is delivered to access points, accelerating the body’s natural release of analgesic endorphins for pain relief.
The initial application of PSTIM is designed to immediately mitigate pain and provide early relief. Additional PSTIM treatments are then adapted toward addressing each patient’s needs. It is recommended that PSTIM therapies be applied for up to nine weeks, as each treatment provides accumulated pain relief.
