I have a specific condition. Can these treatments help me with my pain?
YES. Electromedical Technologies, the university research centers in Europe and participating US doctors/clinics have overseen treatments using the WellnessPro® and have had outstanding results in the reduction of pain in a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. including the following:
•Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
•AIDS related Pain
•Soft Tissue regeneration Pain
•Arthritis-Osteo and rheumatoid
•Spinal cord injuries
•TMJ - Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
•Acute and Chronic Back Pain
•Lyme Disease related Pain
•Herniated Disc related Pain
When can I expect results from treatments?
A licensed professional will attach either self adhesive or carbon rubber electrodes to specific areas of your body. An electrode gel may be applied to facilitate better conductivity of the device’s output. There should be no discomfort during treatment and you may or may not feel a slight tingling. Electrode placement and treatment duration should be determined by a licensed professional. Typical treatments can last between 10-60 minutes. Contact your practitioner for more information.
Are there side effects?
The most common side effect is the reduction and/or elimination of pain. Sometimes patients may experience atypical side effects including, but not limited to: diarrhea, night sweats, headaches, nausea, flu-like symptoms, etc. Make sure you consult your practitioner if you experience any symptoms.
If it’s so effective, why haven’t I heard of it before?
The technology has been available to the elite, practitioners, professional athletes and celebrities for over 60 years. It has been used for decades throughout the world and is common practice in various hospitals and clinics in Europe today. In the past few years, bio electrotherapy has become more available in the United States. It has quickly opened new possibilities and frontiers in the medical field for research and overall wellness.
How does this device work to reduce pain?
The WellnessPro® Plus electrotherapy device produces the FASTEST LONG TERM RESULTS by alleviating acute and chronic pain symptoms. It is widely used around the world and is the premier choice of health care professionals, athletes, coaches, and medical research facilities.
WellnessPro® Plus impulses stimulate the peripheral nerves that send information about touch and vibration. The signals from the stimulated nerves interfere with pain signals traveling to the brain which reduces the brain’s perception of pain. In addition, the frequencies generated by the WellnessPro® stimulate endogenous opioids. These can eliminate pain through the same biological processes as prescription pain medications but without the harmful side effects.
Is this a TENS device?
YES. The WellnessPro® has been FDA cleared as a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) device. These devices use electrical stimulation to relieve pain. Unlike other TENS devices, the WellnessPro® has a very large frequency range coupled with a unique delivery system which stimulates the body to block pain signals. The WellnessPro® has demonstrated superiority to other comparable devices by achieving longer term pain relief. The WellnessPro® allows more flexibility for users and practitioners.
Can I buy the WellnessPro® for myself?
YES. If you are a licensed medical provider, proof of license must be provided. If a non-licensed individual would like to purchase the WellnessPro® for personal use at home, a prescription from a licensed medical provider must be on file. This is a FDA requirement for use in the United States only. No prescription required if the individual lives outside the United States. Additionally, if you do not wish to personally use the device and would like to become a sales representative for Electromedical Technologies, you can purchase a unit with distributor paperwork on file.
What is the function of the WellnessPro 2010 Plus Mircocurrent (μA)?
The human body functions through electro-chemical processes. Currents flow through cells, connective tissues, muscles, ligaments, and bone by neurological pathways to the brain. When an injury occurs at a particular site, the “Electrical Grid” is disrupted causing the healthy current flow to change pathway conductivity.
The WellnessPro Plus microcurrent (millionth of an amp) works with the body’s electric current on a cellular level. The unique sub-sensory micro currents increase the production of ATP, protein synthesis, oxygenation, ion exchange, absorption of nutrients, elimination of waste products and neutralizes the oscillating polarity of deficient cells. The WellnessPro Plus utilizes a unique combination of the largest range of frequencies and waves to achieve fast pain relief in the most difficult cases.
