ZMPCZM016000.10.01 Nexwave clinical presentaion from Painezee

  1. 1. Welcome! Pain Management Without the effect of DRUGS NexWave Confidential
  2. 2. Presentation Overview Basics of Electrotherapy Different Types of Modalities Theories of Pain Control Electrotherapy – Indications for use Zynex NexWave Product Training Confidential
  3. 3. Electrical impulses are sent through electrodes placed on the skin Electrodes are placed over nerve centers near or over the area of pain The impulses block pain by stimulating the nerve fibers and/or activating the release of endorphins Confidential
  4. 4. Types of Electrotherapy Modalities Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Typically delivered between 1 Hz and 250 Hz Indicated for chronic and acute pain relief Interferential Current (IFC) Typically delivered between 4,000 Hz and 5,000 Hz Indicated for chronic and acute pain relief, edema reduction, increase circulation Neuromuscular Electrical Nerve Stimulation (NMES) Typically delivered between 25 Hz and 80 Hz Indicated for muscle disuse atrophy, muscle re-education, muscle spasm reduction, increase ROM Confidential
  5. 5. TENS Current TENS current is typically delivered between 1 Hz and 250 Hz. With TENS and NMES Stimulation, sensation is felt directly under the electrodes Confidential
  6. 6. Interferential Current 4,010 Hz minus 4000 Hz = 10 Hz 4000 Hz 4010 Hz When the fixed and adjustable frequencies combine (heterodyne), they produce the desired signal frequency (Interference frequency or beat frequency). 10 Hz 4,010 Hz IFC uses a fixed carrier frequency of 4,000 Hz per second and also a second adjustable frequency of 4,001-4,250 Hz per second. 4,000 Hz IFC is concentrated at the point of intersection between the electrodes. This concentration occurs deep in the tissues as well as at the surface of the skin Confidential
  7. 7. Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) NMES is usually delivered between 25Hz and 80Hz Stimulation is delivered at a much higher intensity (mA) than IFC or TENS Electrodes are placed over muscle motor points to facilitate a muscle contraction instead of at a sensor or muscle twitch like IFC or TENS Confidential
  8. 8. TENS Versus Interferential Current (IFC) TENS Versus IFC IFC is believed to penetrate to deeper tissues than TENS because the current is concentrated at the point of intersection between the electrodes. This concentration occurs deep in the tissues as well as at the surface of the skin, reaching to greater depths and over a larger volume of tissue than TENS Capacitive skin resistance decreases as pulse frequency increases. For example, at a frequency of 4,000 Hz capacitive skin resistance is eighty times lower than with a frequency of 50 Hz (in TENS range) Confidential
  9. 9. How Electrotherapy Controls Pain There are two theories of pain control: Gate Control – Mild continuous high frequency electrical stimulation (>20PPS) blocks the pain signal traveling to the brain Endorphin Release – Strong but comfortable low frequency electrical stimulation at a muscle twitch (<=10PPS) causes the body to release its own pain relieving substances called endorphins Confidential
  10. 10. The Gate Control Theory • Pain stimuli travels along the small diameter, slow conducting nerve fibers to the spinal cord where they are transmitted to the brain (A-delta, C fibers) • The pain stimuli carried by the small diameter fibers can be inhibited by stimulating the large diameter, fast conducting, sensory nerve fibers (A-beta fibers). • The application of TENS to the Abeta fibers “closes a gate” in the spinal column which prevents the pain stimuli from reaching the brain On-set of pain relief is immediate, but pain returns shortly after treatment Confidential
  11. 11. The Endorphin Release Theory The Endorphin Release theory is based on the presence of natural opiates in the body. These opiates, which act as the body’s natural pain suppressor, are produced in the pituitary gland as beta endorphins and in the spinal cord as enkephalins. Stimulation of the sensory nerves promotes the release of these opiates. These endorphins then bind to specific receptor sites in the central and peripheral nervous system where they block the perception of pain. Electrical stimulation applied at or below 10 Hz at a muscle twitch has shown to produce endorphins. On-set of pain relief is slower (20 minutes), but pain relief can last for hours after treatment Confidential
