how does it work?
SCENAR is therapeutic bipolar electrotherapy delivered through the skin. Most modalities used by healthcare practitioners are passive. But SCENAR therapy is different. It uses active reflex biofeedback to create a responsive, unique treatment at every session. Your body creates a network of electromagnetic and acoustic fields, that are altered when injured. SCENAR monitors, recognizes and responds to the changes in the skin’s impedance, then uses a unique form of electrotherapy to stimulate the largest amount of neural tissue, creating a cascade of healing neuropeptide release. In other words, SCENAR enables a unique interaction between device and the body to stimulate its own, natural healing mechanisms providing maximal therapeutic effect.
who can benefit?
SCENAR can be used regardless of the type of diagnosis and is therefore a non-specific approach which, however, depends highly on the ability and the speed of the patient’s body to react to the SCENAR signal. SCENAR produces both local effects (by stimulating the skin, muscle and blood vessels) as well as general influence effects (by influencing nervous and endocrine systems). It is further known that the pattern of SCENAR impulses stimulates neural pathways via active points in the skin in an effort to restore and to improve the function of the disease-affected organs and tissues.
SCENAR therapy can be used to treat many conditions, including but not limited to:
- Pain associated with injury, surgery or trauma
- Musculoskeletal problems such as bursitis, tendinopathies, strains & sprains
- Jaw & dental problems
- Skin conditions & scars
- Poor energy & sleep
- Rebalance nervous system
how long does it take?
A typical SCENAR treatment takes 30-60 minutes and can be incorporated as a part of your physical therapy session.
does it hurt?
SCENAR therapy should not be painful. You may experience a somewhat uncomfortable tingling sensation during the treatment and, on occasion, may feel worse or more sore immediately following the treatment. This is a GOOD thing, because it means the SCENAR therapy is inducing a change in the condition and healing has been influenced. Many people experience no uncomfortable sensations and report feeling less pain within their first treatment.
