LISMORE PAIN CLINIC, (02) 6622 6966

brain-glutenNeuro scientists are now telling us the brain can change its own structure and function through thought and activity (Doidge, 2007). It is really no surprise that the brain can be stimulated into making changes within our bodies.  The brain is our central processing unit that regulates the body’s vital functions. It achieves this through a close connection and interaction of your nervous and endocrine systems.

The non invasive electrical signal produced by a SCENAR device prompts a response from the body.  We have recently introduced to our clinic the German made physioKEY device, which marks the latest development in non-invasive neurostimulation technology.

Overall, the physioKEY is an effective, non-invasive, advanced form of electrotherapy and may be effective in treating acute and chronic pain. By stimulating the body’s inherent self-healing mechanisms, its direct effect is several times stronger than that of other physio-therapeutic devices, with no undesirable side effects.(Lee, Chung, & Willis, 1985)
