I am very excited to announce that Byron Health and Healing has begun using the TMR device to address pain. Treating pain can be very frustrating for physicians, especially those in primary care whose main tool for the treatment of pain is the prescription pad.
Most patients have already tried over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol and ibuprofen. The next step commonly incorporated to treat pain is prescription strength medications like tramadol (Ultram), which has morphine-like qualities. Other medications essentially numb the nerves such as many anti-seizure and anti-depressant medications.
Next in line are the infamous narcotic analgesics like Vicodin, Percocet, oxycodone, and OxyContin. Unless your head has been buried in the sand in the past few years, you are well aware of the major abuse, misuse, and dependent nature of this dangerous class of drugs.
TMR offers an alternative to pills that do not treat the underlying cause of pain.
What is the TMR device?
Being treated with the TMR device is NON-painful. Yes, that’s right. It does not hurt. It uses an electrical current at a very high proprietary frequency which cannot be felt by our bodies to reset the tissue at the cellular level. The resetting of the cells subsequently resonates with the proprietary electrical signal of the TMR, thereby allowing the cells to function normally at the normal electrical setting.
It is like a dance teacherdance pairing with the student who follows the lead of the teacher until the student can function independently. Electroceutically speaking, this is how the TMR works. It is all completed in a matter of minutes using the TMR.
Why use the TMR device?
The Scientific Imaginetics TMR is intended for temporary symptomatic relief of chronic intractable pain, and as an adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical and post-traumatic acute pain.
Although the FDA approved the TMR device for “temporary relief of pain”, clinically it is expected to be long-lasting. I have experienced this with personal use and with patients.
Who can benefit from the use of TMR?
- Any age
Do you have acute or chronic pain?
Common conditions treated with the TMR device:
- Acute or chronic back and neck pain
- Sprains, strains of ligaments and joints (ankle, knee, shoulder, etc)
- TMJ, muscle tension headaches
- Migraine headaches
- Joint pain – shoulders, knees, hips, wrists, elbow
- Tennis and golfer’s elbow
- Overuse injuries
- Plantar fasciitis
- Iliotibial band syndrome (common among cyclists, runners)
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Trigger points of fibromyalgia
Consider TMR to get back in the game much sooner. Professional athletes (NBA, etc) have been treated with TMR for a quick return to their respective sports. If it is good enough for professional athletes, it is good enough for you.
Have cortisone shots been recommended for your back , neck, knees, hips, or shoulders?
Consider TMR to avoid more cortisone shots.
Have you had cortisone shots that did not work?
Too many cortisone shots ultimately can deteriorate soft tissue and bone leading to accelerated degenerative changes such as arthritis and osteoporosis in addition to a weakened immune system.
Have you been told there is nothing more that can be done for your pain?
Look no further. Have no fear, TMR treatment is here. It is an excellent option that no one has heard of. It can assist in giving your life back.
Have you been injured on the job? Do you need to return to work as soon as possible?
TMR is well-suited to treat many of the painful conditions that can cause one to miss work. You can return to work sooner to earn your “real’ salary, not the 66% that worker’s compensation typically pays.
Will you need or should you continue physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and/or massage therapy?
These modes of therapy are often very beneficial for patients who have painful conditions. Each situation should be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. However, I have found TMR to be an excellent adjunctive therapy when combined with the above modalities. Generally, the muscles and soft tissue surrounding an injured or painful area often become weak due to underuse. Adding physical therapy or chiropractic treatment will address any underlying weakness and/or structural malalignments which will further improve the condition of the patient once the pain is removed.
Do you need TMR after surgery or a painful procedure?
Look no further, TMR is well-suited to treat post-surgical and post-procedural pain.
Does behavioral therapy play a role with TMR?
Yes, behavioral therapy is especially important for those who experience chronic pain. The issue that must be addressed is how to live without pain. Those who have lived with moderate-to-severe chronic pain must address the behavioral aspects of how to live free of the habits and activities that contribute or support living in chronic pain.
How many treatments will you need?
For most conditions one-to-three treatments will substantially reduce or eliminate pain. Some conditions may require more treatments for full elimination of pain. Each treatment lasts approximately 10 minutes. If more than one treatment is needed it is best to schedule those on consecutive days such as Monday, Tues, and Wednesday, for example.
What is the fee for treatment with TMR?
$500 per treatment.
Two treatments $1000.
Three treatments $1500.
It is important to note that TMR is very effective with clinically long-lasting effects. The pain is not expected to return. Can this be said for those of you who have had cortisone shots in your back, knees, or joints? Once the cortisone wears off, patients return to the office for another shot which has the potential to cause further deterioration of the soft tissue and bones.
Does insurance pay for TMR treatments?
Insurance does not cover TMR. Check with your benefits department to determine whether it is covered by Flexible Spending Accounts and HSAs (Health Spending Accounts)
