Chiropractic West Greenwich RI Hako-Med Bioelectric Horizontal Therapy

Advanced “Horizontal Therapy” extends the effects of standard electrotherapy by simultaneously stimulating the body’s electrical and chemical healing responses.  It helps patients get out of pain and also helps in stimulating and healing nerve function for patients with Neuropathy. Read this article to learn more about Hako-Med Bioelectric Therapy in West Greenwich.

What you can expect in West Greenwich:

  • One of the most advanced devices in the field of electromedicine
  • Relieve pain and promote healing and recovery of musculoskeletal injuries
  • Unlike traditional forms of electrotherapy, it results in successful stimulation of both electrical and chemical healing processes–not just one
  • Stimulating the release of natural enzymes and other tissue-building cells in your body

How does it work?

The human body is made up of cells that constantly undergo electrical and chemical processes in order for the body to function properly as a whole. These processes go hand in hand, propagating or inhibiting each other when necessary. Some examples include

  • Energy production
  • Muscular contractions
  • Transmission of nerve signals

At a cellular level, electrotherapy is ultimately used to stimulate these electrical and chemical processes to relieve pain or prompt tissue healing. Horizontal Therapy is a revolutionary form of treatment because it results in successful stimulation of these electrical and chemical processes at the applied area. Peripheral nerves transmit sensory information from our limbs and organs to our central nervous system allowing us to interpret and understand experiences from the outside world through the phenomenon of sensations(biofeedback). Hako-Med is clinically proven and the only patented therapy that allows the simultaneous creation of biochemical and bioelectric effects in the same tissue. It is the most sophisticated form of electrotherapy available.

What Types of Conditions Are Treated with Horizontal Therapy?

Is Horizontal Therapy Safe?

Bioelectrical currents that are used in the PRO ElecDT 2000 are entirely safe. They have been rigorously tested and have surpassed all standards required for biomedical devices. The current is painless and, in many cases, barely felt.

Can I Benefit from Horizontal Therapy?

Most pain patients 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 treatments sessions. Although results can vary upon a patient's condition, Horizontal Therapy has often proved effective as an alternative treatment when other options have failed.
