Don't let pain get in your way


When you’re suffering from pain, you want to know only one thing: when will it end? Pain can come from many sources and in varying degrees, but no matter the source or severity, you need quick and long-lasting relief to get you back to the activities you enjoy.

Alpha-Stim® can give you long-lasting pain relief, quickly and safely. Many patients feel immediate results after just one treatment. Unlike medication, such as opioids frequently prescribed for pain relief, Alpha-Stim has no lasting side effects and no risk of addiction.

The Alpha-Stim M is a handheld, prescription electrotherapy device that delivers advanced Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) directly to your pain site through an exclusive, patented waveform. The unique waveform uses a highly refined and extensively researched current to provide non-invasive, sustainable pain relief and pain management wherever and whenever you feel discomfort.

What people are saying…

“Alpha-Stim has proven, over time, to be my reliable source for relief. It eliminates my severe and chronic pain, and restores a welcomed and peaceful sense of well-being.” – Jack McCalister, US Military Veteran, Oklahoma

Maurer, LAT, ATC, Head Athletic Trainer, Dallas Cowboys, Texas

I am probably the most skeptical person when it comes to anything dealing with pain management due to the 14 month period that everything under the sun was tried, and nothing worked except surgery. I still have a few uncomfortable spots still, and during rehabilitation, I injured my lower back. I was sent back to pain management for my back and I immediately told them that nothing they did for my neck worked, and that I was not willing to go through that again for my back. The nurse told me she wanted to run some tests on me, and after 8 sessions I was provided an Alpha-Stim machine. All I have to say is that this machine has provided tremendous relief of both my lower back and my overall sleep! – Jason Olds, US Veteran

How It Works

The sensation of pain is transmitted through your body along billions of nerve cells that are specifically designed to transmit pain messages through electrochemical signals.4 The Alpha-Stim M electrotherapy device uses a microcurrent waveform effectively modulates the signals within the cell to provide significant pain relief and pain management.

Applied directly at the site of pain using hand-held probes or attachable electrodes (whichever may be easier for you to apply), the Alpha-Stim M offers non-invasive, fast relief of many types of pain, including acute, chronic, and post-traumatic pain.

Alpha-Stim is also an effective form of pain management, designed to help you avoid or reduce the need for pain medications, but it is safe to use in conjunction with prescriptions or over-the-counter medications, if needed.

Additionally, the Alpha-Stim M electrotherapy device is able to deliver Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) therapy. CES is proven to relieve symptoms of insomnia that usually accompanies pain.

How it works

We use the Alpha Stim unit for a range of post-traumatic pain secondary to soft tissue, bone and nerve injuries and have had good success. It is a safe, efficient and clinically effective tool that we now use on a regular basis here at Everton Football Club.

Joe Hinnigan, Physiotherapist, Everton Football Club
