Lifestyle is a leading provider of opioid-sparing non-invasive electrostimulation devices. These devices include Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and its higher-power cousin, NEUROMUSCULAR ELECTRICAL STIMULATION (NMES). Electrostimulation has increasingly become a part of comprehensive pain management programs because it gives providers another non-invasive option to help reduce the number and length of opioid prescriptions.
TENS is even being used to treat such painful conditions as Fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathy. A clinical study published in the November 2013 edition of Pain, a prestigious medical journal, noted that TENS reduces pain, fatigue and hyperalgesia while restoring central inhibition in primary fibromyalgia.
Lifestyle supplies prescription units, which are not the same as those found hanging on drugstore racks. Lifestyle takes the time to instruct patients on proper unit usage, which enables the patient to feel more comfortable using the unit and facilitates more-effective pain relief.
Lifestyle also supplies CONDUCTIVE GARMENTS for TENS and NMES units. Conductive garments are worn over the affected painful area and attach to the unit and are made of material that enhances electrical conductivity and comfort.
