U.S. Army Bomb Technician Finds Relief with Alpha-Stim

Selfless service. Personal courage. These are two of the core Army values that men and women in uniform vow to uphold while serving in this branch of the U.S. Military.

While every day of service requires courage and selflessness, it takes a special kind of grit to persevere after a combat-related injury. What follows is a letter from a 38-year-old bomb technician – still currently serving, with 20 years of Active Duty – relating his personal experience.

“In 2008, I was hit with a monster of a blast, which blew out my right ear drum and caused a noticeable traumatic brain injury and irreversible nerve damage to my right arm. I had struggled through the pain for nearly 10 years before my wife (a nurse) forced my hand at taking a sleep study.

This EEG [a test that measures electrical activity in the brain using small, metal discs (electrodes) attached to the scalp] from this appointment encouraged military doctors to refer me to the Intrepid Center (TBI clinic) here at Fort Campbell where I received premium care and attention.

Through the process of my therapy, I was recommended to try Alpha-Stim M for anxiety, insomnia, and pain management. Up until this evening, I had only been using the earclips for insomnia and the probes for local treatment of pain in my right arm. Tonight out of desperation (pain), I tried your electrodes on my upper arm (above the elbow) and back of the hand to treat my ulnar nerve pain in my right arm.

I found a great reduction in resting pain (from a 4 to a 0) and an extension pain that I would call a 2-3 from a hard 8. I ran the electrodes at a current level of 6 for a total of 40 minutes and I am amazed at the results.

Thank you for your product. Thank you for a non-medicinal option. I hope more will benefit from your product as I have.”

Alpha-Stim is an Integral Part of the Intrepid Spirit Center Program for Treating Military Personnel

As he mentions in his note, this Service Member was treated at an Intrepid Spirit Center, a satellite location of the National Intrepid Center of Excellence. These facilities use a multi-disciplinary approach to treat both the body and the mind of the soldier, relying on Alpha-Stim® as an integral part of their program.

Alpha-Stim is an FDA-cleared, handheld medical device proven time and again to effectively treat anxiety, insomnia, acute, post-traumatic, and chronic pain. This is what makes it an ideal therapy for the inextricably linked mental and physical wounds of war.

Moreover, since Alpha-Stim is not a prescription drug, there is no risk of addiction or lasting side effects. There is also no negative impact on a service member’s ability to perform his or her duties. Alpha-Stim helps service members continue to perform while getting the relief they need to live healthier, happier lives.

Alpha-Stim is Trusted by Military Organizations and Personnel

The United States Military has long trusted Alpha-Stim to bring the ultimate in care to our men and women in uniform. Alpha-Stim is a key part of the U.S. Navy’s Pain Management Initiative, it has excelled in research studies conducted at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and it is a mainstay of William Beaumont Army Medical Center’s holistic approach to treatment.
