The PulStar Therapies Can Be
Applied to the Following Conditions*

Typical chronic back pain conditions

According to the American Chiropractic Association, one half of working Americans admit to back pain each year, and it’s the most common cause of missed work. While diseases can cause back pain, more often than not it is a result of musculoskeletal issues or misalignment. The PulStar system is designed specifically to treat musculoskeletal conditions, and could be ideally suited to treating back pain.

Lower back pain is the most common type of back pain, with over 31 million Americans experiencing this symptom at any given time. It is also the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease 2010. The PulStar’s multiple-impulse technology, paired with Essential Elements Cream massage to relax the muscles, can provide a clear treatment plan for lower back musculoskeletal misalignment, while also allowing for some relief between visits.

Spasms of the skeletal muscles are the most common type of muscle spasm. Patients complaining of brief, painful spasms are often advised to gently stretch muscles, but chiropractic care applied to the area may help to reduce occurrences of muscle spasms. The musculoskeletal therapy of The PulStar device can be applied to the area to help enhance chiropractic treatment.

Everyday life provides a plethora of opportunities to develop neck pain— sleeping, bad posture, improper stretching and even talking on the phone can lead to this symptom. Because neck pain can happen at any time, Essential Elements Cream massaged into the neck muscles can provide immediate relief by relaxing muscles while also being used as part of a treatment plan involving The PulStar device.

Stress tension and musculoskeletal pain in the shoulders is a common symptom treated by chiropractors, but sometimes patients complain about pain coming back between visits. Essential Elements Cream can be used outside of the chiropractor’s office for tension relief, and when combined with The PulStar device, it can minimize tension symptoms overall.

Joint pain and potentially related conditions

Treatment options for joint pain are varied and wide-ranging. Many patients are choosing to add chiropractic care to their joint pain regimen, and The PulStar doctors are able to offer an additional option that is scientific, gentle, and provides a different approach to the treatment of musculoskeletal joint pain.

Nerve fiber or pinched nerve related conditions

Musculoskeletal issues are sometimes at the root of pain or numbness in the arms, legs, hands or feet. Patients are often surprised to find out that chiropractic methods aren’t just used to treat back pain, and can be used on the extremities as well. Similarly, The PulStar device was designed to assist chiropractors beyond the treatment of back pain, and can provide relief to patients with pain or numbness in the extremities.

Pinched nerves, causing pain or tingling and numbness, can happen almost anywhere on the body. They occur when too much pressure, often musculoskeletal, is pushing down on a nerve, disrupting the nerve’s function. The PulStar’s multiple impulse therapy can be applied precisely in the area of a pinched nerve to help relieve the pressure that is causing the symptom.

Repetitive strain related conditions

Pain in the heel of the foot when standing or walking is often the result of plantar fasciitis, which is when the ligament supporting the arch of the foot is damaged. This musculoskeletal issue can be treated with an Essential Elements cream massage, which helps to relax the ligament connecting the heel to the toes. The effect of the cream can be enhanced with the use of The PulStar device, which helps to push the cream through the tough skin on the sole of the foot and into the affected muscle.
