New research shows that the pain signal may be simply an "electrical leak" from an ion channel. As previously written there is a connection between the opening and closing of ion channels and electrical polarity charges. The new finding by a team of scientists at KU Leuven indicates the actual pain message is electrical and is short circuited due to chemical changes in the ion channels. The ongoing research is showing the chemical and physical relationship of pain and electrical polarities.
This video shows the Infrex patient step by step instructions on turning on the Infrex machine, which buttons to push and why, and how to begin using the Infrex Plus machine.
The Infrex Plus is a combination interferential tens machine however 99% of patients trying the Infrex only use the Interferential mode because of the "carryover pain relief" which a tens machine does not do. 1 or 2, 30/45 minute treatments per day, is the way most Infrex patients use the Infrex once they receive the unit. After 2-3 weeks may only need the unit once or twice weekly due to carryover pain relief gained by preventing pain, not treating pain.
The Infrex unit is used to teach our brain to avoid the transmission of pain message when it is not due to a trauma but is a persistent, non natural continuous message. The use of the Infrex is to teach the brain to stop the message and prevent the non natural message from being created. Continuous training by using the Infrex Plus generally helps retrain the brain to stop the message and pain is lessened or eliminated.
