Building Your Practice: Bioelectronics Expands Known Inflammation Relief to Psoriasis
Electrotherapy from bioelectronic is an easy, affordable method for you to help patients relieve inflammation without painful side effects, dependencies, or harmful after effects. It’s a reliable tool for relieving musculoskeletal pain and stiffness, as well as a wide variety of inflammation pains.
Low-current electrical stimulation provides relief with a dosage that doesn’t cause muscles to contract, generating just a tingling feeling for most. Electrotherapy can be applied to patients for 15 to 30 minutes per session, or up to several hours depending on the severity of the pain.
By introducing these devices into your practice, you can generate a steady stream of recurring revenue with custom therapies for your patients, without risking their health. Practitioners like you are in the best position to provide support and relief in case devices like our WellnessPro Plus need to be adjusted or if a patient starts to acclimate.
Our solution offers the widest range of frequencies of any tool on the market, with five additional wave types to provide a unique experience for each patient. It’s a relief they’ll love, especially if they suffer from chronic inflammation.
Known inflammation relief
Inflammation is a major concern for Electromedical Technologies because we know that it plays a key role in causing and perpetuating pain. Chronic inflammatory conditions are becoming more common as our population ages, and older patients need more relief options that are safe and reliable.
Electrotherapy is our focus because it removes many of the risks, especially those related to addiction, found in many other pain-relieving therapies.
According to a review of research and studies published by the NIH, electrotherapy provides long-lasting, anti-inflammatory effects that have been established as effective and safe through extensive clinical use. It notes the ability to “improve overall patient care and maintenance of quality of life via low-risk and potentially curative treatments.”
We’ve already seen it used as an effective therapy for inflammation in cases like rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, where it both reduces inflammation and mitigates existing pain in trouble spots. Now, we’re learning that electrotherapy can provide relief for additional inflammation-related concerns.
A first effective trial for Psoriasis
A new pilot study looking at the use of electrotherapy to treat plaque psoriasis has found that it can reduce redness, scaling, and itchiness in just four weeks of treatment. It opens a new, non-invasive way to treat the chronic inflammatory skin disease that may impact as many as 7.5 million Americans.
Inflammation signals produced by the body’s immune systems are believed to cause psoriasis skin issues. In many cases, this condition can lead to health concerns as well as social isolation. Currently, there is no known cure, and many topical ointments or biologics only provide brief relief but carry a variety of side effects.
An interesting note about this study is that electrotherapy is used to stimulate cervical and thoracic spinal nerves. So, patients will not be placing electrodes, straps, or other device components at the location where psoriasis presents. This limits the potential for irritation or discomfort.
What this new study shows us is that electrotherapy can work in tandem with existing treatments or may potentially replace them by providing relief without the risks or side effects associated with today’s chemical treatments.
