If you have been experiencing pain for a long time then your body has most likely accepted your condition as "normal". We describe this as your body being "stuck on a roundabout". My goal is to build you a road off that roundabout and to manage your pain.
So what are Physiokey and Medkey?
Physiokey and Medkey are state of the art electroneurostimulator technology which use computer-modulated electrical impulses to read and stimulate the brain's signals using active reflex biofeedback. During this 'conversation' neuropeptides are produced, releasing endorphins and activating the body's natural healing processes.
Results are different for each person, depending on how long you have had your condition, how fast your body responds and other factors including the current state of your general health, however best results are achieved with commitment to regular treatment to achieve the optimum outcome.
Benefits of therapy are:
100% drug-free non-invasive pain relief technology
Identifies optimal treatment points helping to ensure the most effective targeted treatment
No undesirable side effects
Fast and sustained results
Can treat pain related to both acute and chronic conditions
Uses the body’s own healing capabilities and encourages the body to self-regulate
Therapy may assist with the management of:
Cancer pain (including neuropathic pain resulting from treatment)
Post Mastectomy pain
Athletic post-workout pain and recovery
Tight fascial pain (fascial release treatments)
Plantar fasciitis pain
Degenerative and prolapsed disc pain
Headache and migraine pain
Peripheral neuropathy pain
Facilitate functional restoration and improve range of motion
How do Physiokey and Medkey differ from a TENS unit?
Physiokey and Medkey are a quantum leap in technology over TENS Therapy.
In conventional TENS therapy, for example, the pain subsides usually only while the TENS unit is activated.
With Physiokey and Medkey, pain relief extends beyond the actual treatment, often weeks beyond. That’s because with the use of TENS devices, the body adapts itself to the electrical signal and eventually just ignores it. The net result? The pain returns.
This is one of the major distinguishing factors when using Physiokey and Medkey.
Physiokey and Medkey send out a signal and then wait for it to return from the body. The device then ‘reads’ the returning signal and adjusts its own subsequent signal.
Because of this biofeedback mechanism, each new signal differs from the previous one, thus overcoming the adaptiveness of the body to a single, continuous electrical signal as in TENS.
Physiokey and Medkey also influence local blood flow, especially in regulating micro-circulation. That’s important in the treatment of sports injuries, as blood brings the building blocks for repair and removes dead tissue and waste products.
But one of the biggest factors of Physiokey and Medkey is their ability to induce the release of regulative peptides.
While Physiokey and Medkey also induce the body to release natural opium-like painkillers called endorphins (similar to the action of TENS), it is the release of regulative peptides that enables Physiokey and Medkey to quickly help the body.
So how do Physiokey/Medkey and TENS compare to each other?:
Physiokey/Medkey – dynamic therapy. The device is moved over the skin in order to specifically find optimal treatment areas.
TENS – passive therapy. Treatment is non-specific. Stimulation is used to block the sensation of pain with electrodes adhered to the skin.
Physiokey/Medkey – specificity of treatment. The unique waveform uses feedback to detect areas on the skin that are neurologically related to areas of injured tissue.
TENS – non-specific treatment. Electrodes are placed on or around the area on the skin that is painful. There is no feedback so no detection of injured tissue.
Physiokey/Medkey – unique waveform. Pulsed, damped, sinusoidal and skin-impedance sensitive. High amplitude and very short pulse width of the waveform prevents adaptation to the impulse. No two waveforms are the same.
TENS – waveforms typically square, spiked or sine, mono-phasic or bi-phasic and are repetitive. Adaptation typically occurs due to repetitive stimulation and long pulse duration.
Physiokey/Medkey – highly responsive. Treatment time can be as little as 5 minutes.
TENS – requires prolonged use.
If you have tried many other therapies with no success and are looking for longer lasting relief, regular Physiokey/Medkey therapy may be the answer. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
*Please note that Physiokey/Medkey therapy is not recommended for clients with a pacemaker, epilepsy or during pregnancy.
