How does the Stimpod NMS460 work?
The therapeutic effect of the NMS460 waveform is based on the cellular metabolic activity observed when a neuropathic nerve is subjected to electromagnetic effects caused by pulsed radio frequency (PRF).
How do I use the Stimpod NMS460?
Treatment with the NMS460 starts by finding the affected nerve. Through clinical evaluation, you can identify the nerve that is responsible for the symptoms, like chronic pain, nerve palsy etc.
How do I bill for it (USA)?
In the States, we have a multitude of ways in which a Chiropractor (or any provider) is reimbursed for treatment rendered to a patient. Options include private pay or cash payments, health insurance, which may include Medicare and/or Medicaid type policies, personal injury and Worker’s Compensation.
Protocol for the treatment of Diabetic Neuropathies
The most important aspect of any treatment with the Stimpod NMS460 is to identify the correct nerve supply to the particular region. Diabetic neuropathy affects all peripheral nerves including sensory and motor nerves, including more rarely, the autonomic nervous system. A patient can have sensorimotor and autonomic neuropathy or any other combination.
Protocol for the treatment of Bell’s Palsy
The most important aspect of any treatment with the Stimpod NMS460, is to be familiar with the anatomy of the nerve you are treating, in this case, the facial nerve. Initially, it is advised to try to locate and treat the facial nerve at its most superficial areas/ branches where a visible contraction of some of the facial muscles becomes evident at a relatively low intensity.
Protocol for the treatment of Radiculopathy
Radiculopathy, also commonly referred to as pinched nerve, refers to a set of conditions in which one or more nerves are affected and do not work properly (a neuropathy). This can result in pain (radicular pain), weakness, numbness, or difficulty controlling specific muscles.
In our last webinar, Corlius Birkill (CEO of Xavant) and Prof. Phyllis Berger (University of the Witwatersrand) answered questions from new Stimpod NMS460 practitioners.
