I was introduced to the Alpha-Stim 100 microcurrent
stimulator electrotherapy device approximately 10 months ago by Dr. Michael
Perry. I have been asked to provide my experiences with it and am most happy
to do so.
The Alpha-Stim unit has been utilized almost exclusively on our patients
over the last 10 months for a wide-ranging spectrum of foot and ankle
conditions. This has included, but has not been limited to, capsulitis,
fascitis, tendonitis, bone healing problems, RSDS, and post-operative pain.
Alpha-Stim has become our primary physical therapy treatment of choice due
to excellent efficacy and tolerance by the patients. Usually two or three
treatments over a week or so is sufficient for pain relief when combined
with other treatment we provide (NSAIDS, cortisone injections, orthoses,
etc.) It has almost completely replaced our older standby physical therapy
modalities such as ultrasound, phonophoresis, and iontophoresis. Often
immediate relief is attained and patient satisfaction is very high. It is
very user friendly and cost-effective. Side effects are negligible.
On a few occasions, I have referred patients to Dr, Perry directly to "rent"
a unit for home use. This was helpful for older injuries, non-healing areas,
and the RSDS case.
I am pleased to recommend the Alpha-Stim unit without hesitation. I
initially had personal experience with it for treatment of a muscle injury,
with immediate and (frankly) surprisingly good relief of symptoms.
