HOW DOES THE STIMPOD WORK?
How does the Stimpod NMS460 work? Non-Invasive Pulsed Radio Frequency (PRF) The therapeutic effect of the NMS460 waveform is based on the cellular metabolic activity observed when a neuropathic nerve is subjected to electromagnetic effects caused by pulsed radiofrequency (PRF). This cellular metabolic activity seems to change the characteristics of the nerve, which in many cases causes the nerve to recover back to its normal function.
Typically there are four phases associated with a pulsed radiofrequency procedure:
• A stunning phase, which provides immediate relief.
• Occasionally there may be a phase of post-procedure discomfort.
• A phase of beneficial clinical effect.
• A possible phase of recurrence of pain or paralysis
