Whereas a typical TENS unit creates a distraction from pain, Hako-Med actually increases energy in the body to promote healing and recovery from injury at the cellular level causing changes to the cellular membrane enhancing healing. Many e-stim therapy units create mechanical electrical stimulation to the muscle, but the highly sophisticated technology, developed by German engineering also works at the cellular membrane in a wide area. This equipment allows the physician the choice of 200 pre-programmed protocols or the ability to develop and write specific customized protocols based on specific needs for our patients specific problems or injuries and prcmd’s patient parameters. Clinical indications and usages of Hako-Med technology include chronic pain, sports injuries in youth and adults, muscular dysfunction (e.g., atrophy, range of motion limitations, spasms, weakness, etc.), peripheral nerve pain, poor circulation, post-traumatic injuries, and post-surgical pain and prevention of thrombophlebitis. Hako-Med can be used in conjunction with, in alternation to, or independently from any other therapy. A typical treatment session can last anywhere from 10 to 50 minutes. When used alone, the recommended protocol for Hako-Med is three times weekly for 2 weeks then re-evaluated. However, when used in combination with other therapies, Hako-Med works synergistically to accelerate the healing response and reduce recovery time.
