How does the therapy work?
Most patients say that Anodyne Therapy feels warm and soothing. Others say they feel some tingling and pulsing. This is normal as blood flow returns to the area. Some patients respond very quickly in our comprehensive program, while others take longer based on their degree of impairment. We will work with your as long as you are willing and we can continue to show that your condition is improving.
Pain is often the first symptom to improve in our program, while functional improvement may take more therapy. The first study examined 784 patients with chronic pain who were unresponsive to ultrasound, electrical stimulation, hot packs and medications. Nearly 89% of the patients had excellent to total pain relief within twelve 45-minute Anodyne Therapy sessions. As the study show, while not every patient experiences pain relief, the vast majority do.
