Fibromyalgia’s New Foe: High-Tech Medical Device Shows Increasing Efficacy for
the Debilitating Symptoms of FMS
patients worldwide are seeing rapid improvement in their symptoms from a
high-tech medical device.
OH (PRWEB) September 6, 2006 -- Fibromyalgia patients worldwide are
seeing rapid improvement in their symptoms from a high-tech medical
device indicated for depression, anxiety, insomnia, and pain.
90% of the patients treated with the CES reported improvement in
quality of life.
device employs two distinct technologies, Microcurrent Electrotherapy
Technology (MET) and Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES), to treat
psychological and physical symptoms. It has been used by professional
sports teams, such as the Dallas Cowboys and Indiana Pacers, and pain
specialists to treat pain disorders successfully. Recently,
rheumatologists have begun prescribing it for their fibromyalgia
patients who are reporting significant results.
"The results are so positive in such a difficult-to-treat population
that one becomes skeptical," says Robert S. Katz, M.D. of Chicago, IL
while responding to a study on the device. "However, it is hard to
dispute the present data. 90% of the patients treated with the CES
reported improvement in quality of life."
While the degree of improvement varies for each patient, some patients
are seeing life-changing results.
Joellen Cross, a patient with chronic fibromyalgia, saw almost a
complete turnaround rather quickly. "I received my unit last July, and
went from despondent and weary from the chronic pain, to nearly
pain-free, and elated at the change, in less than a week," she says.
"And the depression I was experiencing more and more as the chronic pain
progressed is all but eliminated."
Fibromyalgia is seen in about 3 to 6% of the population and there are
few effective treatments available. Given that many fibromyalgia
patients cannot tolerate medication, this device is seen as a welcome
non-drug approach by patients and physicians to treat its symptoms.
Marilyn Lins, M.D., of Utica Neurological Surgery, Inc. in Tulsa,
Oklahoma said that the results she has been obtaining have been close to
miraculous. A pain specialist, Dr. Lins reported on several fibromyalgia
patients who have had sufficient pain relief to resume normal activities
with as little as two 20 minute treatments per week. One of her patients
stopped limping after only one treatment. Dr. Lins said, "[CES has
forever changed my treatment approach. I have never experienced results
like I have had in the past two months."
"Some rheumatology practices are writing orders for these devices for
their entire fibromyalgia caseloads," said Karl Moeller, President and
CEO of Moeller Medical, LLC, distributor of the device. "Our goal is to
have every fibromyalgia patient try our treatment. Most will benefit to
some degree and some will have dramatic improvement."
Moeller Medical has set up two informational websites for patients and
physicians to learn about the device,
Depression Treatment Now and
Anxiety Treatment Now, and plans to follow up with informative sites
later this year for insomnia and chronic pain.
