Alpha-Stim 100

biofeedback instrument.jpg (139633 bytes)

Absolutely nothing relieves pain, anxiety, depression, and/or insomnia like the Alpha-Stim 100. Inspired by recent advances in our understanding of biophysics, the Alpha-Stim 100’s therapeutic abilities have been acclaimed by health care professionals and patients world wide. Results gained from the Alpha-Stim 100 have been repeatedly verified through more clinical studies than with any other device in its class.

The Alpha-Stim® 100 uses microcurrent electrical therapy (MET) for those suffering from acute, chronic or postoperative pain. The Alpha-Stim® 100 works with the body on a large variety of ailments, including difficult-to-treat problems. Alpha-Stim® 100 microcurrent technology produces residual and cumulative results, far superior to previous traditional milliampere transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) devices. Turn a TENS off and the pain returns. Although broadly classified as a TENS, the Alpha-Stim® 100 is significantly superior because MET works with tiny currents, closer to the type and amount of electricity that naturally occurs in the body. By comparison, the electric current used by typical TENS devices is thousands of times greater than natural body current. Although a slight tingling sensation is sometimes felt under the electrodes, it is not necessary to feel this in order to achieve results. Many people feel nothing at all with the Alpha-Stim® 100 except positive results. MET is applied through easy to use probes or self-adhesive electrodes. Specific treatment protocols are included with the Alpha-Stim® 100 and technical assistance is readily available by telephone, fax, e-mail or mail. Alpha-Stim® technology is backed by more independent research than any other device in its class. Electromedical Products International, Inc. has been in business since 1981, treating a wide variety of medical disorders with Alpha-Stim ® microcurrent technology during that time with no reports of significant side effects.

DMS

dms.gif (17811 bytes)

The DMS is. . .

A new therapeutic machine researched and developed by Dr. Jake Pivaroff,  DC.Dr.
Pivaroff's goal is to fill a need for providing relief and increasing strength for people
suffering from chronic pain and restricted movement due to under-conditioned
and/or damaged muscle tissue.

Dr. Pivaroff's recommended use of the D.M.S. is not restricted to professional and amateur athletes, but also to everyday patients and performance animals such as race horses.

What does the DMS do?

Much of muscle pain stems from various conditions; strain, lactic acid build up, scar tissue, etc.. . The DMS uses percussion, mechanical vibrations that reach deep into the muscle tissue to stimulate proprioceptive functions. No other device on the market matches the effectiveness of the DMS.

The DMS provides deep muscle tissue with kinetic forms of percussion and concussion vibration, which in turn facilitates the patient or athlete with the benefits of:

-increased circulation
-increased performance
-faster rehabilitation from injury
-break up of muscular scar tissue
-reduced lactic acid build up increased flexibility, endurance and speed
-increased lymphatic flow

The DMS also concentrates on general or local muscle spasms. It increases muscle metabolism and increases the lactic acid cycle to relieve pain. Deep, rapid, short-duration percussion is the key to the elimination of pain. The DMS can be used in effective management of acute and chronic pain, not exclusive to, but including: migraine headaches, sciatica, TMJ, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, bursitis, edema and frozen joints.

Who Uses the DMS?

Dr. Pivaroff, DC has developed this piece of equipment for use by professionals in the Chiropractic, Medical and physical therapy fields. The professionals include, but are not exclusive to:

-Chiropractors
-Physical Therapists
-Massage Therapists
-Rehabilitation providers
-Medical Doctors
-Sports Trainers (Professional, Collegiate and Amateur) in all athletic disciplines

The DMS has been tested and used on a range of patients for chronic pain, and professional athletes such as...

-Professional boxers
-Professional golfers on the PGA, LPGA, Buy.com and Senior tours
-Professional and amateur tennis players

The DMS has also been used on team sport athletes to increase the performance in:

-Volleyball
-Baseball
-Basketball
-Soccer
-Football
-Rowing
-Track
-Swimming
-Cycling
-Tennis

About EVS 

EVS manufactures protective and support 
equipment for those of us who live on the edge.

motocross, moutainbiking, and other hard pounding sports 
to develope the kind of equipment you need to get back up and 
back on the gas! 

EVS Braces
Like a helmet for your knees! EVS has made Motocross knee  braces since 1985 and lots of medical  research and hard riding over the past years has resulted in the awesome RS-6 and AMX5 knee braces. The EVS line of knee braces may 
help in reducing the stress on your Medial Collateral (MCL), Lateral Collateral (LCL), Anterior Cruciate (ACL), and Posterior Cruciate (PCL) ligaments. These 
ligaments help provide stability in your knee joint. Its best to try to protect yourself against damage to them by wearing a knee brace. However, if you've been unfortunate and have already injured or damaged one or more of those ligaments, a knee brace could provide the needed stability in your knee to let you get back in action. By all means a knee brace is like a helmet for your knees!

Pneumex, Inc.

Located in Sandpoint, Idaho at the foot of Schweitzer Mountain, Pneumex is family owned and dedicated to providing innovative equipment used by Chiropractors and Physical Therapists around the world.

Pneumex is the origin of the Pneu-Back™ Program offering cutting edge treatment programs for chronic back pain, Scoliosis, Kyphosis, athletic performance training and balance programs.


The Pneu-M.A.P.™   Patent Pending    

  • Quantitate posture curves
  • Measure flexibility of spine
  • Measure postural lean
  • Monitor patient progress
  • Facilitate patient understanding and compliance 
  • Provide documentation for referral sources and third party payer 
  • Computer generated protocols for use with Pneu-Back Chair™
  • Standardize and simplify clinical protocols

    Accurately shows posture deficiencies. This posture gauge graphically measures the posture curves and lean. The graphing is done with the patient standing in front of the Pneu-M.A.P. ™ Both the patient and the clinician can see how the patients posture compares to the ideal posture.  The Pneu-Mapprovides simple diagnosis and documentation.

    Research shows there is a definite correlation between pain and posture.  The MAP was created to make the patient’s postural deficiencies visual (and therefore understood by the patient), as well as providing reliable documentation. The MAP can be used for measuring AP postural curves in standing and sitting postures as well as ROM of the thoracic spine and also for measuring lateral curves such as scoliosis.  The MAP provides a way to do a non-invasive measurement of a Scoliotic curve.  A recent study done at the University of Montana has shown a high correlation when comparing the MAPs ability to measure a Scoliotic curve and X-Rays of a Scoliotic curve. 

    There are 5 areas pinpointed during the mapping procedure: Cervical, Upper and Lower Thoracic, Lumbar and Sacral.  The apices of these curves are entered into the Pneu-Back™ software to print a graph of the patient’s spine.  The software is simple to use, with the ability to visually display a comparison between pre treatment and post treatment postures on one sheet.  Also the MAP measures the forward or reverse lean of each patient.  The more lean in a persons spine, the more likely they are to complain of pain.  Using the printout from the MAP software you can treat a patient for their postural imbalances.  The MAP also gives the suggested protocols for the Pneu-Back Chair based on the patients’ postural analysis.
