During Device Treatment
After just a short time using the P.E.N.S. device, you will know it’s working.
This device is successfully helping patients mitigate pain and opioid withdrawal throughout the world. Remember, your ear provides multiple points for nerve stimulation within a small area to alleviate pain. Stimulation is performed by electrical pulses emitted through strategically positioned tacks.
The pulses produced by the neurostimulator travel through the nerve tracks into the central lobe of the brain, causing the release of endorphins, the body’s natural opiates.
These endorphins travel through the bloodstream and inhibit pain throughout the body. This reduces pain, increases circulation, causes relaxation, creates less anxiety/depression, and in many cases, increases and improves sleep.
The P.E.N.S. Neurostimulator has been placed behind your ear to administer continuous electronic pulses through electrodes that generate a low-level electrical current to nerve endings in the ear.
When feeling relieving effects from the device, do not overexert yourself. You are healing, and “little steps” towards exertion are recommended.
You will return to the clinic after the ten day period to have the device removed in the clinic by your provider. The final step is to complete the case survey taken on treatment day.
