In one study, researchers used ElectroAcupuncture Medicine on patients with hip osteoarthritis. The participants were randomized into groups that either received ElectroAcupuncture Medicine or took a prescription pain reliever/anti-inflammatory. Those who were treated with ElectroAcupuncture Medicine experienced significantly greater improvement in joint pain alleviation, function, and range of motion compared with the medication recipients.
In another study, acupuncture therapy with E-stim reduced post-surgical pain. The day before undergoing heart surgery, patients received either ElectroAcupuncture or a sham treatment. After the operation, the ElectroAcupuncture group reported significantly lower pain intensity and required less pain medication than the control group.
ElectroAcupuncture Medicine has been shown to restore damaged nerves. Patients with peripheral nerve damage and some loss of muscle function had a poor prognosis. After treatment with ElectroAcupuncture Medicine, the majority of recipients regained some function or recovered completely.
During the treatment, patients may feel a mild tingling or tapping sensation at the point of the needle’s insertion, although some people feel no sensation at all. If the treatment is applied to a large muscle or a knot in the muscle, the muscle may twitch or release. The treatment site may feel fatigued or sore the next day as the muscle fibers recover their natural strength.
