What is Synaptic Therapy?
Synaptic Therapy is a pain management technique that uses a complex electronic signal with a broad frequency range to modify the neurochemicals produced in the body. Synaptic Therapy is used to safely treat neuropathy, nerve pain, and chronic pain, and offers relief without the need for surgery or opioid-based medications.
How does Synaptic Therapy work?
Synaptic Therapy works by delivering a unique electronic signal to the body's deep tissues. This signal, called Synaptic Electronic Activation (SEA), simulates the electrical burst that occurs when neurons fire, rather than using a simple electrical output like other devices (E-stim, TENS). The treatment is administered through one or more sets of electrodes placed at the site of pain, either on or near the affected area or closer to the central nerve branch. The electronic signal has a biocompatible waveform, similar to the electric waveform generated by the human body.
Studies have shown that the use of SEA technology modulates neurochemicals both during and after treatment, leading to reduced pain, increased tissue resolution, and reduced symptoms associated with nerve pain. This technology can provide lasting relief for various chronic nerve conditions, such as pre- and postoperative pain, burning pain, numbness and tingling, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Neuritis, Radiculopathy, inflammatory conditions, Neuromas, and Restless Leg Syndrome.
Synaptic Therapy can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other medical regimens and does not require surgery or the use of opioids.
What is the normal duration of a treatment?
Treatment varies by provider, however, a treatment typically lasts between 20 and 40 minutes split into two consecutive 20-minute sessions. The recommended protocol is 20 minutes at one frequency, followed by 20 minutes at a higher frequency.
The effectiveness and length of treatment depends on the patient's individual factors, such as condition, treatment adherence, genetics, diagnosis, and other factors. In most cases, patients undergo treatment for 6 to 8 weeks.
