Stivax in Chattanooga

low back pain relief with chiropractic care

STIVAX (pronounced Steevax) is a small batterypowered electronic device that can be fitted under the collar line. Virtually painless, through a titanium tipped array a randomized and varying series of low frequency electrical impulses are delivered to specific nerves. The initial application is designed to immediately mitigate pain and provide early relief.

Before the procedure the physician will determine the correct peripheral nerve access points for the array placement. Each treatment phase will last approximately 20 days, common protocol will be 3 phases over a total of 60 days. STIVAX is water resistant and generally will not affect your normal routine. You may be scheduled for several follow up visits so the physician can check your progress, comfort, and customize the output of the device the patient.

Randomized, controlled studies indicate that the majority of patients describe at least 50% reduction in pain and a further accumulation of pain reduction in subsequent months treatment. Some patients, having solely relied upon narcotic drug therapies to control their pain, have be able to significantly reduce or totally discontinue the use of these conventional medicines.
