Clinical studies and reviews
The most important and the most interesting experiments providing scientific support for acupunctural analgesia were studies conducted on humans and animals using endorphin antagonists (e.g. Naloxon, Naltrexone).
As new results indicate, the strong analgesic effect of electro acupuncture in the low-frequency range is due to methionin/encephalin release and in the high-frequency range due to A-dinorphin. At the same time, the higher concentration of the body's own circulating morphins improves the sense of well-being. A treatment unit based on these findings is now available. It is notable among other things for being user-friendly, quick to apply and comfortable to wear. P-STIM™ is ideal for point stimulation on the ear. We recommend stimulating the points according to Somatotopie Nogier. In cases of chronic low-back pain the desired effects are achieved by microstimulation, having selected two general pain points and one local stimulation point on the ear. In cases of prolonged chronic pain we recommend an overall therapy period of 6 weeks. Control tests should be carried out within 6 months to check the success of the therapy using VAS (visual analog pain scale).
