What does Neurostimulation Key / SCENAR therapy treat ?
This type of therapy does not treat a particular disease or condition, it stimulates the body’s own healing resources. Neurostimulation treats the whole body.
This therapy restores function and activates the bodies internal healing abilities. When you present for a treatment we take into account all symptoms so a detailed case history is taken so we can establish what systems are being affectied and where the imbalances are.
Condtions that respond well include :
Pain, acute and chronic. If you are in pain anywhere a neurostimulation device such as a PhysioKey, SanaKey, or SCENAR can help to alleviate that pain by reducing swelling, inflammation and speeding the recovery process.
SCENAR therapy can be used as a complementary or mono therapy to treat pain associated:
- Musculoskeletal problems
- Dental problems
Key therapy can be used as a complementary or mono therapy.
The PhysioKey (ARTG 230724) intended use is for :
- Acute and Chronic pain.
- Increased blood circulation.
- Passive muscle stimulation.
- Improvement and recovery of function.
What happens during the treatment ?
Neurostimulation is different to any other form of alternative treatment. The devices are used in different patterns all over the body. Treatment is focused at the point of pain and also in general zones to activate the central nervous system.
Each treatment is different, the body can therefore not adapt to the treatment and is constantly made to change. Unlike most other conventional therapies like physio or chiro, neurostimulation enables the body to heal itself very quickly. Results can be achieved quite rapidly.
How many treatments will I require?
Depending on the condition, how long the condition is present, if it is acute or chronic and what other health issues are happening depends on the course of treatment. General recommendation is a course of treatments up to 12 folllowed by a short break to allow the body time to heal.
Acute conditions clear very quickly and may only require 1-3 treatments. Each case is treated individually and no 2 cases are the same.
