CAN I BENEFIT FROM HORIZONTAL THERAPY?

Most pain patients at Staten Island Wellness Care experience tremendous benefits from Horizontal Therapy. Any patient that experiences chronic pain and/or suffers from a circulatory disorder may benefit from treatment. Patients beginning a treatment course with Horizontal Therapy often experience significant benefits within the first three treatment sessions. Although results can vary depending upon the patient’s condition, Horizontal Therapy has often proved effective as an alternative treatment when other options have failed.


How Does Horizontal Therapy in Staten Island Work?

Horizontal Therapy uses electricity to initiate your body’s natural function. Drugs are chemically based and influence the body chemically. However, the chemical reactions of drugs also create electrical effects on the human body. Horizontal Therapy works in a similar way, but it directly uses electricity to affect electrical and chemical processes in the body. No other form of bioelectric therapy can influence both electrical and chemical processes at the same time in the same treatment area.

Just as a pharmacy has many different drugs to treat different ailments, Horizontal Therapy in Staten Island has different electrical signals to influence the body in order to treat a wide range of ailments with virtually no negative side effects.


WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE HORIZONTAL THERAPY TREATMENT?

The primary objectives are to provide immediate temporary pain relief and to gain long-term pain relief by treating the condition causing the pain. You can expect a mild tingling often described as relaxing and comfortable.


HOW DOES HORIZONTAL THERAPY FIT INTO MY TOTAL THERAPY REGIMEN?

  • Instant Pain Relief. Similar to pharmaceutical based pain medications, Horizontal Therapy can provide immediate, temporary pain relief to the patient.
  • Improves the Condition. Through successive treatments, Horizontal Therapy acts on the cause of the condition to provide improvement and deliver long-term pain relief.
  • Rehabilitates Muscles. Horizontal Therapy can strengthen muscles in a patient that have not been active due to a painful condition.
  • Provides Maintenance Therapy. Sometimes a patient’s condition is so severe that the ultimate goal of therapy is to decrease pain to a manageable level. Follow-up treatments that can sustain an achieved improvement in a patient’s condition.

PATIENT Q&A

Q: I notice my skin is reddened under where the electrode was placed. Is this dangerous?
A. No. With proper dosage, there is occasionally reactive hyperemia (increased blood flow to the area.) This will disappear in a short time. If you experience any discomfort, please inform Dr. Steve.

Q. How many treatments are necessary for good results?
A. Electromedical treatment regimens are like drug treatment regimens – normally requiring 8-15 treatments (depending on the individual and the medical condition.) Treatment time varies from 30 to 60 minutes. Dr. Steve will go over your treatment plan during your visit. If you have any questions, feel free to bring them up. We want our patients to feel secure and informed on all aspects of their treatment plans.

Q. Hako-Med electromedical treatments relieved my chronic back pain in 3 treatments, yet Dr. Steve has prescribed additional treatments. Is this really necessary?
A. Prescribed regimens are usually based on research documentation and published medical reports. These documents recommend what is necessary for long-lasting results and complete electromedical regimens increase chances for optimal results.

Q: Are there any side effects from the Hako-Med electromedical treatment?
A. Typically there are minimal to no side effect. Depending on the individual patient and their medical condition, some side effects might include: relaxed or fatigued sensation with a desire to sleep, increased energy with difficulty falling asleep, occasional mild headache, increased bowel or bladder activity, and pain having moved to a different location. Most of these side effects have to do with changes (improvement) in blood circulation. Always advise Dr. Steve at Staten Island Wellness Care in Staten Island or the staff of any changes or abnormalities you may experience from electromedical treatment.
