Modern Innovators of Pain & Injury Care
Thanks to the endorsement from various orgs including NANCYSLIST, the AngioFoundation, F.A.C.E.S. Foundation (Firefighters Against Cancer & Exposures), MOVEMBER Foundation and the NY Cancer Resource Alliance, IPHA was formed under tremendous support from the cancer community due to the wide exposure to post-treatment pain and injuries of patients. Moreover, the establishment of IPHA is highly supported by community groups battling the OPIOD CRISIS. Inspiring members including Dr. Andrew Rochman (Plainview, NY), a staunch advocate against "America's addiction to pain meds" echoes the need to unite the healers community for one voice. “It is this very attitude about pain that has driven our society into a misguided dependency for the quick fix and has created a major traffic gridlock in information and solutions. Where a western society that once ran a healthy existence on a lean diet and a proactive lifestyle, today's response trend to any discomfort is meds or visiting a specialist.”
THE FUTURE IS NON-INVASIVE MEDICINE
|IMPROVING QUALITY OF LIFE:
Axiobionics Arm BioSleeve helps a US Veteran regain arm function after a brain injury. Sgt. Shannon Mcallister was injured in an IED blast in Iraq causing a traumatic brain injury and left side paralysis. For more than a year the arm remained frozen and lifeless until he began wearing the Axio BioSleeve muscle stimulation system. "Sgt. McCallister realized that this technology was going to offer him the hope that he was looking for. And so I convinced Sergeant McAllister to let me design a wearable therapy sleeve, what we call an upper extremity neural prosthesis. We targeted three muscle groups and I wanted to rebuild these muscles for him. So he would have improved upper extremity, strength and control and function. It didn't take very long for him to actually get to the point where he was using the arm again, functionally."
WHAT IS BIOFEEDBACK?
IPHA is also underway a similar research initiative to confirm other innovations including the widely recognized PEMF (Pulse Electromagnetic Frequency) and BIOFEEDBACK treatment. A recent IPHA member, Dr. Silvia Binder (CEO of ONDAMED) offers an expanded healing capacity to include a full-body diagnostic scan to identify and target disfunction such as Soft Tissue Injuries, internal wounds, inflammation, infection, scars or cellular memory of unresolved shock and trauma. This biofeedback technology is also known to “successfully manage depression, PTSD and other mental health issues”, according to NY psychiatrist, Dr. George Tawfik.
|HOW IS BIOFEEDBACK USED?
Biofeedback has been used for a range of applications, including:
EEG feedback has also been shown to be beneficial in managing symptoms of certain brain injuries and attention deficit disorder, and there is some evidence suggesting it might be efficacious in depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
