High Ankle Sprain Electrotherapy Protocol Print E-mail

  Here is a video detailing protocol for high frequency stimulation on a high ankle sprain.   Purpose was to get Dwight Freeney back on field for Super Bowl game against the New Orleans Saints.  Functional restoration is the process of accelerating the natural state of self healing using the body's electrical characteristics and currents for rapid repair and full competitive function.



What Is A Hormone Profile? Print E-mail

   Often a clinic that specializes in "Hormone Replacement Therapy" is immediately regarded as an "estrogen" or "testosterone" clinic implying the patients are there for  "sexual dysfunction".   Women often seek hormone replacemlent therapy from their physician.   That simply is not the case if one is going to a "wellness clinic" or "science based medical clinic".  The reason for the reference by many to the sexual side is much of the discussion centers on what is known as male or female hormones related to sexual functions and sexual male/female characteristics.  There are many more hormones than those two, and even those two may require the use of other hormones, specifically DHEA,  to effectively assimilate those two hormones into our system properly.

   My personal experience has been I go to my medical doctor,

What is High Frequency electrical stimulation?


    The term "high frequency" gets bantered around in medical circles indiscrimately.  If one reads that a "bone healing machine" or a "wound healing machine" or one can "repair tissue and get back to competitive sports" if they use a certain high frequency machine for sports rehab. acceleration of healing, then what are they saying?

     There is no doubt that estim, electrotherapy, can accomplish the above results however it's not certain any form of "high frequency" is what is causing the changes.   Basically in electrotherapy we have a core definition of how our body, specifically nerves, respond to pulses of electricity.   We get lost when we venture too far astray from nerves and guesstimate effects on the cellular level.   Frequency is nothing but "how many times per second is this tens machine, interferential machine, Russian stim machine, pulsed galvanic machine, or muscle stimulator going off and on.   It's nothing more than that. 

     With electrotherapy and nerves the following applies:

1.  C fibers, pain fibers/nerves, respond to 1 - 5 times per second for a machine to go off and on;

2. Motor fibers, muscle nerves, respond to 1 - 38:

3. Sensory fibers, feel something other than pain, 1 - 80.

    Due to physical and chemical restraints a machine going off and on more than that has very little, if any effect on those nerves.  However the use of "high frequency" generally refers to a machine going off and on from 1,000 - 20,000 times per second so what gives?

Can Sciatica Pain Be Cured Without Medications? Print E-mail

Can Sciatica Pain Be Cured?


    Sciatica affects so many people and help is elusive.   Patients suffering from sciatic pain often reject the constant use of pain medications simply due to the effects of not being totally functional and being alert.   When only medications are offered as a "cure" the patient often chooses to endure the pain rather than take the meds.  In patient parlance the stopping of meds, the return of sciatica pain, is not a "cure".

   Of course if there is a physical issue such as impinged nerve, slipped lumbar disc, or degenerative disc then one needs to remove the cause of the radiating sciatic pain.   Remove the cause and the pain is gone.   That is a cure.

   However in many situations the sciatica is simply too much stress on the leg with the pain radiating.  The cause of the pain is the poor posture, often occurring due to some form of back pain, and the patient has accommodated the back pain by altering their gait.  Very small shifts of weight, slight angle change of the SI joint, greatly affect stress to the legs.   That additional stress, going on for long time periods, actually causes the sciatic leg pain.
