What is Painrelief?
Painrelief is a non-drug approach to chronic pain reduction. It reduces the duration and intensity of chronic pain. It uses the Nuraleve SmartStim M1000, a Health Canada-licensed platform for the treatment of chronic pain.
How does it work?
Painrelief™ employs the latest advances in neuromodulation technology. It applies a targeted weak electrical current to the scalp to stimulate a region of the brain responsible for the management of pain. Painrelief ™ is non-invasive, and has been shown to be safe in hundreds of studies looking into a variety of conditions. Consecutive daily sessions offer the best results.
How is Painrelief different?
Over time, chronic pain causes structural and chemical changes in the brain. Painrelief™ gently stimulates specific regions of the brain, helping to reduce the perception of pain.
