Scenar and pain relief for injuries
I have worked with the Scenar for over 6 years. The SCENAR (Self Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulator) is a small hand-held, battery powered device, invented by a team of Russian doctors and scientists for use by cosmonauts in the Russian space programme as a natural alternative to drugs. It has been used extensively for over 25 years.
How does it work and what does it feel like?
It works by stimulating the nervous system. Electrical impulses, which mimic nerve impulses are transmitted through the skin to the nervous system ands result in a therapeutic response, usually at the site of treatment.
As the device is moved over the surface of the skin a tingling sensation is felt. In severe pain the sensation may be stronger.
What conditions can it treat?
In the UK the Scenar is only licenced for aiding with pain relief. However the Russians
have used it for a very broad range of diseases including digestive, cardio-vascular, respiratory, muscular –skeletal, urinary and reproductive problems.
It is especially helpful in treating sports traumas, hastening the speed of recovery after injury and will give pain relief for muscular problems, pulled ligaments, tendons and soft tissue damage.
Light therapy-Low Level Laser treatment(Q1000)
I recently sometimes use a low level laser (see www.lightforhealth.co.uk) in conjunction with the Scenar , which also helps with the healing process.
