InterX

Shingles or Herpes Zoster is a viral infection caused by a virus varicella zoster. The virus remains dormant in the roots of the nerve cells (near the spinal cord). A weakened immune system allows reactivation of the virus typically after severe illness, major surgery, physical or emotional trauma. Followed by burning, sharp pain under the skin, Shingles most commonly appears as blisters on reddened skin on the back or upper abdomen accompanied by feeling tired and chills, headache, and an upset stomach. They tend to follow nerve paths. Pain is very severe during two week period of time.     In this case the InterX was used from the day (1) when skin eruption took place. Pain was rated as 9 (out of 10). Both, the area of blisters and the spinal root were treated simultaneously for 30 minutes, using dual flexible array and a home use device 4 times a day to control pain. Every time pain level was reduced to 2 (out of 10) by the end of a treatment. After first two days, (day3) of treatment, pain subsided as 4 (out of 10) and the frequency of the treatment reduced to two times/day. The following day (4) pain […]

Female, Z.F. 45 year old 2nd degree burn Burns are notorious for terrible pain, but more over, that burnt part of the skin makes the body to be defenceless from environmental bacteria and most of the time complicated by secondary infection. That is why people have to go to casualty.   Here is a case of myself, I must say, that this is my second serious burn.   This one is a 2nd degree burn, which means that it is deeper and blisters. The burn was from bubbling hot oil and clearly very sore. I used my personal InterX immediately following quick rinse with water. To engage all possible mechanisms for pain control, I had to use quite high intensity of pulsing current as well as to use highest signal  frequency 480PPS. (Preset 4). Because the burnt area was small (fitted to the size of the electrode) I applied it directly to the burn, total treatment time 15 minutes. Pain and soreness disappeared. It was still sensitive to heat, but it didn’t bother me for another 2 hours. After two hours I treated the burn again with the same protocol, but for shorter time – 10 minutes. Pain completely abated […]

Male, C.W. 32 years old Fracture of the head of the humerus Fall on the shoulder whilst snowboarding, a week ago before coming for Interx treatment. A fracture was confirmed by X-Ray with the prescribed standard treatment to immobilize it with a sling. In order to speed up healing, this patient was treated with the InterX device. First, the area of the shoulder was scanned with 360PPS and area of exact projection of the fracture was identified and stimulated for 20 minutes, followed by treatment of the back of the neck and upper thoracic area (anterior and posterior aspect) to relax muscular spasm associated with mild whiplash injury. The patient was provided with the personal InterX Sport device and dual flexible array to cover (like a sandwich) the shoulder area. Home use treatment protocol was to use  Preset 4 and apply the dual flex array to the shoulder for 20 minutes and back of the neck for 10 minutes, two – three times day. Progress was checked after a week of application, there was no sign of local inflammation such as swelling, redness, or pain. This patient did not experience pain through out the treatment process and recovered smoothly after […]

Female, R.S. 64 years old diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Degenerative disc disease   The patient suffered with degenerative back and disc disease for over 9 years, muscular atrophy on the lateral aspect of her left thigh following L2 dermatome from such prolonged compression on the associated nerve. She was walking with a significant limp as her left leg is shorter. However, her main complaint was on a severe and consistent stabbing pain in her left groin and knee when she was walking. She was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. On her first visit the pain was very intense 8 – 10 (VAS), especially when walking; she was depressed, overweight and suffered with poor sleep. She occasionally resorted to NSAID. After the initial assessment, the cervical zone was identified as the active region and treated with the Flex array, cycle 2, on the follow up sessions she received a treatment at the spinal root, the corresponding dermatomes L1/L2 and the contra-lateral side. By the end of the treatment course (7th and 8th treatments) her pain was significantly less 2 – 4 (VAS), without stabbing sensations when walking and with less limp. Her sleep improved. After two weeks break resumed the treatments with her personal InterX device […]

Female, G.M. 76 years old, OA case   Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common degenerative condition. It can occur in any joint in the body, it is often in the knees and hips, but also frequently happens in the hands. OA is caused by breakdown of cartilage, with eventual loss of the cartilage of the joints. Cartilage covers the surface of the joint; when the cartilage degenerates, it becomes thin and the ‘wear and tear’ process causes local inflammation in the bone, so it becomes inflamed and local bony protrusions like a spur could cause sharp pains when the joint is moved. This especially occurs in people whose body ph is acidic and dehydrated. This patient came with severe aggravation of chronic arthritis in her carpo-metacarpal joint. This joint was very inflamed, painful (7 out of VAS) and restricted joint movement (only to 15º instead of 90º), hot, swollen and tender at palpating. InterX was used right on the joint, scan at 60PPS, target at 240PPS and Dynamic at 30 – 120PPS during 30 minutes + simultaneous use of the flexible array, Cycle 2 on her Cervical zone for 20 minutes. She was given to use the Personal InterX 1000 […]
