Website Dedicated To Reversing Back Pain Launched
The site www.stopmusclepain.com empowers individuals with all types of neuromuscular pain, including back pain (the second most common neurological ailment in the U.S.), myofascial pain, and fibromyalgia, by disseminating information on eToims, as well as general and specific topics on the role of muscles and nerves in upper and lower body pain. eToims is the only neuromuscular pain treatment that targets the mediate cause of pain at its origin, the nerve-muscle junction.
Pioneered at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine by Jennifer Chu, M.D., Emeritus Associate Professor with more than 30 years of clinical research in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, eToims applies very brief, noninvasive electrical stimulation at the junction of the involved nerve and muscle, to elicit abrupt "twitch" muscle contractions to individual muscles. These twitches perform local exercise and scientific massage from within the muscle. The inability of common pain therapies to stimulate neuromuscular junctions explains why long-term pain management has for so long remained an unsolved mystery. With no downtime involved, eToims Twitch Relief Method is an ideal treatment for those employed in high-performance, high-stress occupations such as athletics, entertainment, business ownership, law, and finance.
While the noninvasive eToims technology (discovered in 2006) evolved from neuromuscular pain twitch relief work that began in 1990, eToims has roots in the 5,000 year-old tradition of acupuncture. However, instead of rebalancing altered energy, eToims attempts to restore to "normal" changes found in involved pathologic muscles associated with pain by ending:
(1) traction on selective pain-producing structures,
(2) local muscle/nerve lack of oxygen by increasing inflow of intramuscular blood carrying oxygen and other nutrients, and
(3) pain producing accumulation of local muscle tissue wastes by increasing outflow of fluids carrying these wastes.
