Silhouette of a man

Chronic pain and insomnia exacerbate each other, contributing to a vicious cycle.

Chronic pain can have a massive impact on your quality of life. The burden of dealing with long-term pain can affect not just your physical wellbeing but your mental health as well, leading to depression, anxiety, and trouble sleeping. Pain puts us in a bad mood, and the tension from being in a bad mood causes more pain, or what pain specialists call the vicious cycle. Trying to break free from it may seem like an impossible task at times.

Alpha-Stim® is an FDA cleared medical device proven to treat acute, post-traumatic, and chronic pain, as well as the insomnia that often accompanies it. Alpha-Stim is not a drug, so there is no risk of addiction or lasting side effects. But best of all, it works. Time and again, patients reach out to share their success stories. Here is one such story, from a Veteran named Terry Garrett:

The VA issued me the Alpha-Stim. The unit worked quite well for my insomnia. However, my issues have developed mainly from my chronic daily migraines, which I have experienced for the last 7 years. I have been unsuccessfully treated for migraines with medication.

Using the Alpha-Stim with the earclips did not help the migraines. After reading some positive reports of Veterans with TBI’s having success treating headaches with the Alpha-Stim, I decided to try using the sticky electrodes placed just forward of my ears, centrally located on the trigeminal nerve area. I use Alpha-Stim on the maximum setting for 40 minutes at least once per day. The migraines have been reduced from 15 or more long term, high level migraines per month to 3 or 4 low level, very short migraines per month. I am truly thrilled with the results.

I’ve been very cautious about these results but I have almost two months of very reduced migraine pain now, which makes me very hopeful.

Terry’s results are amazing, but not uncommon with Alpha-Stim. It has been proven safe and effective over decades of experience and in more than 100 clinical research studies. The bottom line is that Alpha-Stim works, and it works well.

Alpha-Stim brings relief directly to the site of your pain using either Smart Probes or adhesive AS Trodes

To treat pain with Alpha-Stim, it is always best to use the two handheld Smart Probes that deliver Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) directly to the site of your pain. Treatments are noninvasive and take only a matter of minutes. You can also use the AS Trodes, as Terry opted to do – these are adhesive electrodes than can be worn on the body over a longer period of time. The choice is yours; our clinical support team is here to help you figure out the treatment method that works best for you and your lifestyle, at no additional charge.

Treatments with Alpha-Stim are quick and painless, yet relief is long lasting and often immediate. Additionally, results with Alpha-Stim are cumulative over time. In other words, the more you use it, the better you will feel. And since Alpha-Stim is not a drug, it is safe to use in conjunction with other treatment modalities.

With Alpha-Stim, you can treat your body and your brain; you can stop the vicious cycle of pain and insomnia. You don’t have to choose between pain relief and your mental wellbeing, and you don’t have to settle for medications. Get started today, and let nothing stop you.
