The opioid crisis that is running rampant in the United States has had a widespread impact on medical professionals and their patients – and not just human patients. Veterinary medicine has also been affected, and practitioners have had to adjust to the changes that have resulted from the public health crisis.
Dr. Ava Frick, host of the webinar, is a pioneer in veterinary electroceuticals. She regularly uses Alpha-Stim to treat her patients.
As a reaction to the overprescription and misuse of opioids among humans, Pfizer halted sales and shipments of injectable opioid drugs to veterinary clients in the summer of 2018. Because Pfizer is the largest U.S. manufacturer of these drugs, veterinarians have had to adapt to the shortage of injectable opioids by both rationing their supplies and turning to alternative treatment methods.
Alpha-Stim® is one such alternative; it is an FDA cleared, non-drug medical device that effectively treats acute, post-traumatic, and chronic pain in animals. Veterinarian Ava Frick, a pioneer in veterinary electroceuticals, has successfully relied on the effectiveness of Alpha-Stim in treating her patients for many years.
With Alpha-Stim, you treat pain at its source.
In this webinar, Dr. Frick outlines the multiple indications and types of pain for which Alpha-Stim can be used. She also explains the factors that set Alpha-Stim apart from drugs as a treatment for pain, such as its cumulative results, its lack of side effects, and the fact that it treats the whole body, including the brain. Treating the brain means that not only does Alpha-Stim bring relief from pain, but from anxiety, insomnia, and depression as well.
Dr. Frick also delves into the concrete evidence that supports the effectiveness of Alpha-Stim, reviewing some of the more than 100 clinical research studies that have proven that Alpha-Stim works – and works well.
The takeaway from this webinar is that veterinarians need not despair over the new restrictions on veterinary opioids. There is a safe and effective alternative to treating all types of pain, as well as anxiety, insomnia, and depression, in animals. There is Alpha-Stim.
About Alpha-Stim® For Animals
Alpha-Stim is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device that has been proven time and again to effectively treat acute, post traumatic, and chronic pain, as well as anxiety, insomnia, and depression.
Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) is delivered through a patented waveform via two earclip electrodes to treat anxiety, insomnia, and depression. Microcurrent electrical therapy (MET) delivers pain relief directly to the source of an animal’s discomfort via two handheld Smart Probes.
The effectiveness of Alpha-Stim is backed by over 100 independent clinical research studies. It is the most popular medical device used at home in the treatment and elimination of pain, anxiety, and stress-related disorders in animals. Alpha-Stim is recommended and relied upon by Dr. Ava Frick, the leading authority in veterinary microcurrent therapy.
Alpha-Stim is easy to use at home or in clinic, and treatments last mere minutes. Relief is long lasting and often immediate, and results are cumulative – unlike with medications, your patients will require fewer and fewer treatments over time.
