Signs that your animal could be in pain

  • Cries or moans at times
  • Change in attitude or personality
  • Abnormal gate, shifting weight off a leg
  • Guarding a body part
  • Problem getting comfortable
  • Difficult geting up and/or down
  • Less active or avoids playing
  • Swishes tail or pins ears
  • Has begun to bite or kick
  • Recently had a surgery or injury

How it works

The sensation of pain is transmitted through your pet’s body along billions of nerve cells that are specifically designed to transmit pain messages through electrochemical signals. The Alpha-Stim M microcurrent waveform effectively modulates the signals within the cell to significantly reduce the sensation of pain without medication.

Applied directly at the site of pain using hand-held probes or attachable electrodes (whichever may be easier for you to apply), the Alpha-Stim M offers non-invasive, fast relief of many types of pain, including acute, chronic, and post-traumatic pain.

Alpha-Stim is designed to help you avoid or reduce the need for pain medications, but it is safe to use in conjunction with prescriptions or over-the-counter medications, if needed.

Additionally, the Alpha-Stim M device is able to deliver Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) therapy. CES is proven to relieve symptoms of anxiety, depression, and insomnia that usually accompanies pain.

Alpha-Stim® Therapy

Alpha-Stim® is the most popular medical device used at home in the treatment and elimination of pain, anxiety, and stress related disorders in animals. This technology utilizes two avenues; Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) peripherally and Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) centrally. It is recommended by Dr. Ava Frick, the leading authority in veterinary microcurrent therapy.

Alpha-Stim technology is an FDA cleared prescription medical device. It has been widely researched on animals and used to help people suffering from anxiety, insomnia, depression and systemic pain, since 1981. Research and clinical trials have proven the benefits of this waveform in healing and treating spinal and nerve conditions, wounds, infection, scar and soft tissue injuries.

The proprietary waveform of Alpha-Stim technology works with the body to help it regain a healthy circulatory current, stimulate endorphin release, and rebalance firing patterns. Because the impulse does not need to be felt to achieve effect, it is ideal to be used peripherally or centrally, for the treatment of pain or anxiety in animals.

Your pet’s body is made up of trillions of cells. Each of these cells has its own unique electrical properties. This type of current does not bombard the nervous system with one frequency and set waveform. Instead, it has a 10 second varied waveform with a low frequency (Hertz) and adjustable low microampere intensity so that it can be run sub-sensory, allowing the body to select within the spectrum to establish a harmonic resonance.

Microcurrent Electrical Therapy is a low level current applied via padded probes touching the skin or self-adhesive electrodes, the effect of which are long lasting and cumulative. Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation is the application applied centrally using padded ear clips. It is safe and easy to use by anyone. A typical 20 minute daily treatment gives long lasting results. Alpha-Stim is an adjunct to any other medical treatment or medication. It does not have any of the dangerous side effects that accompany drugs.

Benefits of Microcurrent Therapy:

  • Raise serotonin and beta-endorphins to calm and induce an alpha state
  • Stimulates synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – an immediate energy source for muscle contraction and essential in the metabolism of all organisms
  • Stimulates cellular reproduction
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Stimulates nerve transmission
  • Stimulates acupuncture points and immune response
  • Reduces scar tissue and stimulates wound healing
  • Stimulates production of collagen – the most important component of wound healing
  • Increases blood capillary circulation and vascular activity
  • Increases RNA/DNA synthesis for replacement of damaged cells

Get quick, sustainable relief from acute, chronic, and post-traumatic pain, while also treating other conditions often associated with pain such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

The Alpha-Stim results are impressive!

Following a vaccination a 4 year old Yorkshire Terrier developed a fever, followed by a rash, and then paralysis in both rear legs. The neurologist gave his family a 20-40% chance of ever walking again. This is when he was brought to me. I immediately initiated Alpha-Stim microcurrent therapy. By 10 days he as using his right rear leg and then a few days later he developed some motor function in the left rear leg. This was a happy day!

On the first visit he lacked any deep pain. Now is deep pain positive both rear limbs – I love my career and Alpha Stim Microcurrent therapy!
