3 Conditions that Can Be Treated with CES Therapy

As doctors improve their ability to detect certain conditions, many patients can find themselves saddled with a large number of prescription medications. However, increasing the number of pharmaceutical compounds a person takes increases the risk of harmful side effects and adverse drug interactions. People that want an effective, non-pharmaceutical treatment option for common conditions should consider getting a MyoCalme CES device from Stimtens. Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) uses a cellphone-sized device that stimulates the cranium and brain with a current below four milliamperes which is usually undetectable by the user. Here are three conditions that can be treatable with CES therapy.

Anxiety

One of the ironies of modern society is that many of the things that are designed to make our lives easier often create more reasons to be stressed. Our constantly connected world makes it harder for people to escape their worries, and that has led to a significant increase in the number of people with anxiety issues. CES therapy has been shown to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. One of the benefits of a MyoCalme CES device is that it’s small and discreet, so patients can bring it with them and use it before stressful situations.

Insomnia

Insomnia is another issue that has become more prevalent in modern society. There are many potential causes for this shift, which includes factors such as mobile device use before bed, improper diets, as well as stress and anxiety. Since CES Therapy can help patients manage their anxiety and stress, it makes sense that the device can be used to help with insomnia. The treatment is quick and effective. Most insomnia patients begin to feel the benefits immediately, and some users are able to permanently address sleep disorder issues after using the device for a short time. Best of all, using a CES device to treat insomnia doesn't involve dangerous, potentially habit-forming narcotics.

Depression

Depression is another condition that is growing in prevalence in society. Just as there are many causes for depression, there are also multiple ways to treat it. CES therapy has proven to be useful for some patients who need help managing depression. According to one doctor, the "mechanism of action is probably related to changes in cortical brain activity that cause altered connectivity in the so-called 'default mode network' (DMN). Small changes in the DMN translate into sustained changes in the brain's resting state and overall level of arousal, resulting in reduced anxiety." Using a CES device can help reduce the anxiety and stress that are common symptoms and causes of depressions.

These three conditions are the only ones that the MyoCalme device is currently cleared for, but that can change in the future. There is a lot of research that suggests CES therapy can be useful in treating other conditions.

According to Mental Health America, studies and clinical experience also suggest that CES therapy could be beneficial for treating ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), cognitive dysfunction, traumatic brain injury, pain, and assaultive behavior.
