Biowave PENS 
Biowave PENS (percutaneous electric nerve stimulation) is an external neurostimulator that uses his frequency signal mixing technology to deliver electrical signals through the skin to pain fibers that are responsible for causing pain.
How it Works 
The Biowave PENS works by using a set of small needles that go through the surface of your skin. It then uses high frequency signals that travel to the surface of nerves in the area of the pain site, thus blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
Benefits of Using Biowave PENS 
  • Directed to treat any type of chronic, acute, or postoperative pain
  • Effective against spinal pain, radiculopathy,  and myofascial pain
  • Provides pain relief up to 72 hours post treatment
  • Provides a deep, smooth, comfortable sensation
  • People that used Biowave PENS found that they had increased range of motion, decreased stiffness, reduction of muscle spasm, and a reduced need for pain medication
  • In multiple studies, researchers found that PENS was a more effective treatment as compared to other minimal invasive treatments, such as TENS or physical therapy

At Harvard, doctors have started using a new technique that will treat knee and arthritic joint problems using fat-derived stem cells for knee, hip and shoulder arthritis, as well as tendon problems.

Stem cells have the potential to develop into different types of cells, which make them a valuable tool in treating various injuries that require the regrowth of cartilage. The abilities of fat-derived stem cells allow for it to be a versatile treatment method, that is able to address many osteoperothic and arthritic problems, which are traditionally known to be long and tedious.

Fat-derived stem-cell injections appear to be longer-lasting and may require only one injection. It’s a great alternative for a knee or hip replacement, which is costly and requires a long recovery process.

Stanford has also started a study that focuses on fat-derived stem cells. The two-year, randomized, controlled study will include about 100 patients. The researchers are harvesting fat cells from the knee using a minimally invasive surgery before inserting them back into the knee. Results show that patients have reduced inflammation and report feeling better, and becoming active again in just two months.

Dr. Menkin, who has years of experience performing minimally invasive procedures, is using fat-derived stem cells to address knee/shoulder and hip osteoarthritis and injuries.

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that are able to differentiate into specialized cell types. They can be used to treat a variety of blood and bone marrow diseases, blood cancers, immune disorders, heal broken bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles.   Once thought to only belong in embryos and the umbilical cord, researchers have identified a […]

126 million Americans experience pain in the course of a year, with 40 million of them classifying that pain as severe. But, many of these people prefer to not take pain medication and turn to complementary health approaches such as yoga, tai chi, and acupuncture. When turning to complementary approaches, those suffering from chronic pain […]

There is a new treatment protocol that provides patients with rapid access to a physical therapist when they call to make an appointment. Unlike waiting 4 to 6 weeks to have a consultation with a sports or spine specialist, patients are treated by a physical therapist within 72 hours. Patients that use this new protocol […]

Migraine is a common cause of disability leading to significant financial, societal, and personal burden, along with diminishing quality of life. Instead of using pharmacological interventions, or Botox, one way to treat these chronic migraines are by using nerve blocks. The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block works to stop these migraines along with other forms of […]
