Alpha-Stim Praised in USA Today Expert Panel on Opioid Crisis

USA Today recently sponsored a panel of experts in the field of substance abuse to share their insights on the nation’s ongoing opioid crisis, including a discussion of innovative solutions. Expert panelist Dr. Javier Francisco Vilasuso*, of Florida’s Anesthesia Pain Care Consultants, spoke about technological innovations that can be utilized for pain management and to combat the overuse of and reliance on dangerous medications.

Dr. Vilasuso discussed the use of the Alpha-Stim as a “nonmedicinal way to aid in relieving pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression.” Dr. Vilasuso’s trust in Alpha-Stim when treating patients at Anesthesia Pain Care Consultants is a testament to its effectiveness: “We have utilized this device on many of our most challenging opiate dependent patients and have seen promising results. Most patients are finding that they need less opiate medication to control their pain. They also mention that their stress levels are much improved.”

Alpha-Stim is non-addictive and bears no risk of lasting side effects. What sets Alpha-Stim even farther apart from drugs is its cumulative effect. With most medications, patients must take ever higher doses to attain the same results, due to the body adapting to the drugs. Alpha-Stim, on the other hand, becomes more effective over time – patients who at first need daily treatments may find that they are able to taper down to a few treatments per week, or only as symptoms dictate.

Pain relief is long-lasting and often occurs immediately. Alpha-Stim is FDA cleared and has been proven effective in over 100 clinical studies. In a study of severe pain patients, Alpha-Stim significantly reduced pain by an average of 71% after only 5 treatments. Patients who are in pain may fear that there is no alternative to opiates, that their suffering is unending, that the reduction in prescription drugs means nothing but continued discomfort and stress. But Alpha-Stim is a safe, effective, and easy to use treatment that brings lasting results.
