Scrambler Therapy for Chronic Pain Management | Groundbreaking FDA-approved Treatment

  • Share:

Brooklyn, New York – Tri Medical Therapy, Pain Management, and Trauma Center is excited to introduce Scrambler Therapy, a revolutionary pain management approach, to its range of services. Located in Brooklyn and serving the community from two locations, Tri Medical Therapy is committed to providing advanced and effective solutions for those suffering from chronic pain.

Addressing the Chronic Pain Challenge:

Chronic pain poses a growing challenge in the United States, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reporting that in 2021, 20.9% of U.S. adults (51.6 million people) experienced chronic pain, and 6.9% (17.1 million people) had high-impact chronic pain. Opioids are commonly prescribed for chronic pain treatment, contributing to the ongoing epidemic of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and addiction on a global scale. The statistics reveal that three million U.S. citizens have or currently suffer from OUD. Given the pressing need for innovative chronic pain management methods, scrambler therapy has emerged as a promising option.

Scrambler Therapy – A New Horizon in Pain Management:

Scrambler therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses a unique machine to block the transmission of pain signals by delivering non-painful information to nerve fibers. This method is distinct from traditional approaches like TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). Unlike TENS, which operates on the gateway theory of pain relief, scrambler therapy provides ‘normal-self’, non-pain electrical information to nerves that have been communicating chronic pain, effectively retraining the brain to disassociate pain from the treated area.

Recent Endorsement by Johns Hopkins Experts:

In a recent review paper published in The New England Journal of Medicine on July 13, 2023, two experts from Johns Hopkins in pain management highlighted the effectiveness of scrambler therapy. According to their findings, this noninvasive pain treatment has been successful in providing significant relief for approximately 80% to 90% of chronic pain patients, demonstrating potential superiority over transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) in pain management.

Suitable Conditions for Scrambler Therapy:

This innovative treatment is particularly beneficial for a variety of chronic pain conditions, including neuropathic pain, cancer-related pain, lower back pain, sciatica, post-surgical pain, and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Scrambler therapy offers a new hope for patients who have not found relief through conventional pain management strategies or want to cut down on pain medications.

Key Benefits of Scrambler Therapy:

• Innovative Approach: Scrambler therapy is an electro-cutaneous treatment, delivering scrambled electrical signals that the brain interprets as normal, non-pain signals.
• Retraining the Brain: The therapy capitalizes on neural plasticity, teaching the brain to no longer recognize certain areas as sites of chronic pain.
• High Success Rate: As per a recent review by Johns Hopkins pain experts, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, scrambler therapy has shown significant relief in approximately 80%-90% of chronic pain patients.
• Significant Reduction in Analgesic Consumption: Research demonstrated a 72% decrease in analgesic consumption, including opioids, antidepressants, and anticonvulsants, when using Scrambler therapy.
• Non-invasive and Effective: This therapy offers a non-invasive alternative to traditional pain management methods, with potentially longer-lasting results. The procedure begins by identifying the pain or neuropathy area. Leads are placed on normal sensation skin sites near the affected area. The machine then sends scrambled signals to the brain, creating a buzzing sensation that replaces the pain. Each session lasts about 30 minutes, with the potential for lasting pain relief after a series of treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Scrambler Therapy?

Scrambler Therapy offers a groundbreaking solution for chronic pain, utilizing a noninvasive and innovative approach. Through a sophisticated mechanism, this therapy disrupts pain signals by flooding the nerves with non-pain information, essentially scrambling their transmission. It has gained FDA approval specifically for chronic neuropathic pain cases where traditional treatments such as medication have proven ineffective.

The effectiveness of Scrambler Therapy hinges significantly on the expertise of the operator. Skilled practitioners play a vital role in ensuring the treatment effectively reduces pain.

With its established track record and regulatory approval, Scrambler Therapy emerges as a promising option for individuals seeking relief from persistent and challenging pain conditions.

Is Scrambler Therapy the Same as TENS?

Scrambler therapy and TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) differ both in mechanism and application:

Mechanism: While TENS inhibits pain transmission, Scrambler therapy replaces pain signals with non-painful ones.

Application: TENS is widely used for various types of pain management, while Scrambler therapy has shown particular promise, especially in chronic pain conditions.

Though both involve electrical stimulation, they have different mechanisms and applications, making Scrambler therapy distinct from TENS.

Is Scrambler Therapy Safe?

Scrambler Therapy is widely regarded as a safe treatment option for chronic pain management. Patients typically report only mild discomfort, which is well-tolerated by the majority. Numerous studies, including a systematic review, have found no complications or adverse effects associated with this therapy. Additionally, the electrical charge used in Scrambler Therapy has received FDA approval for safety.

Research from reputable institutions such as the Mayo Clinic supports the effectiveness and safety of Scrambler Therapy for chronic pain sufferers.

Is a Spinal Cord Stimulator Compatible with Scrambler Therapy?

No. Implanted stimulation devices, such as spinal cord stimulators and cardiac pacemakers, may interact with or influence the effects of Scrambler therapy.

How Can I Determine If It Works?

The effectiveness of the treatment can be easily assessed. Immediate pain relief and complete comfort should be experienced after the electrodes are precisely positioned and the stimulation levels are optimized in the initial session. While some pain may return in subsequent sessions, it tends to be less intense, and the duration of relief typically extends over time.

Does Scrambler Therapy Help with Acute Pain?

While Scrambler Therapy can provide relief for acute pain, its primary role is to offer symptomatic relief. It should be utilized whenever pain arises, serving as a temporary solution until the underlying cause is addressed through the natural healing process.
