Pulsed Radio Frequency Workshop on 25 July 2015

News dated: 14 July, 2015

The STIMPOD NMS 460 was recently developed to administer a non-interventional pulsed radio frequency (PRF).  The use of this electrical current has proven itself over the past six years to be an effective form of treatment for reducing neuropathic pain and improving conduction in minimal nerve injuries such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Bell’s Palsy.

The results of using a non-interventional pulsed radio frequency as a treatment modality has been published in a number of recent international journals and presented at various pain conferences.

The following will be covered in the workshop:

•         Differences between PRF and other electrical currents
•         Current research and case histories on the use of PRF
•         Principles of treatment with PRF
•         Guide to the treatment of pain and impaired nerve conduction
•         Contra-indications of PRF
•         Demonstration

Presenter: Phyllis Berger
Date: 25 July 2015

Physiotherapists need to avail themselves of this treatment for many different reasons:
To be able to map or identity the nerve supply involved in a painful condition from any aetilogy,
Once identified- this high frequency combination current of DC, TENS and magnetic field is used to block pain from periphery to pain gate,
It has the dual function of stimulating nerve conduction to improve nerve activity from neuropraxia and other aetilogies with apparent effects on gene expression.

Refreshments will be served compliments of Xavant Technology
