How your doctor in Winter Park, FL, can help you feel better

Chronic pain can dramatically affect many aspects of your life. When you suffer from chronic pain day after day, it can be difficult for you to think of anything else. You may not want to exercise or go to work, and your self-esteem and self-confidence can take a major hit. Fortunately, there is a revolutionary treatment known as Alpha Stimulation Treatment.

Dr. Enrique Umpierre-Schuck of Central Florida Pain and Rehab Clinic in Winter Park, FL, offers a wide range of pain management services, including Alpha Stimulation Treatment. He can help relieve your chronic pain.

So, what exactly is Alpha Stimulation Treatment? Alpha Stimulation Treatment uses a unique electrical current known as an alpha-stem waveform. This electrical current is applied to the brain using cranial electrotherapy stimulation, or CES.

Alpha Stimulation Treatment has been clinically shown to normalize the brain’s electrical output and increase the body’s beta-endorphin and serotonin levels, the “feel good” chemicals that naturally occur in the body.

Alpha Stimulation Treatment is combined with pain treatment protocols to provide relief from:

  • Chronic pain
  • Acute Pain
  • Post-traumatic pain
  • Depression
  • Chronic headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia

Alpha Stimulation Treatment is completely non-invasive and carries no side effects. The treatment effects are cumulative, but many patients experience relief after one treatment. Alpha Stimulation Treatment can also be used in combination with medication, or instead of medication.

If you are looking for a new type of pain management, you owe it to yourself to discover what Alpha Stimulation Treatment can do for you. If you suffer from depression, anxiety, or insomnia and want to find a new solution, Alpha Stimulation Treatment is an excellent choice. To learn more about this treatment and other pain management services, call Dr. Enrique Umpierre-Schuck of Central Florida Pain and Rehab Clinic in Winter Park, FL, at (407) 673-9533.

Are you living with chronic pain? Find out how Botox may be able to help.

If you are dealing with severe, recurring muscle pain that isn’t being alleviated through therapeutic exercises and pain medication, we know how frustrating this can be; however, our Winter Park, FL, physiatrist and pain medicine doctor Dr. Enrique Umpierre-Schuck has helped patients finally find relief from their chronic pain through the help of a simple, minimally invasive injectable treatment known as Botox.

What is Botox?

Yes, we are talking about the same Botox that is used to treat lines and wrinkles. This same anti-aging treatment has also been FDA approved to treat migraines and certain conditions that cause chronic pain. Botox contains a neurotoxin that when injected into certain muscle groups, temporarily prevents the muscles from contracting. As you might imagine, relaxed muscles also equal less pain.

What kinds of chronic pain can Botox treat?

Our Winter Park, FL, pain specialist may recommend Botox treatment if you are dealing with,

  • Chronic neck pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Migraine headaches

When will I experience pain relief?

Most people notice an improvement in their pain within about 10-14 days after treatment, and results can last up to four months. Since Botox’s effects are temporary, patients will require additional injections every few months to provide long-term relief from their chronic pain. Botox may complement your current pain management plan nicely and is often recommended along with other treatment options to help manage your symptoms more effectively.

Is there any downtime after Botox treatment?

Botox is a minimally invasive treatment that only takes a couple of minutes to administer. This makes it possible for people to be able to get the treatment they need without having to take a day off work. We can even treat patients during their lunch break. Botox doesn’t require any recovery time so you can immediately go back to your routine after treatment. Swelling, redness and tenderness at the injection site are common after treatment, but symptoms are typically mild and will go away within 1-2 days.
