NeoTone should not be used on, or in the vicinity of, patients
who use or wear cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators, bone fixation
hardware, or other implanted electric devices, or on patients with cancer or
known or suspected malignant lesions. NeoTone should not be applied
to the head, over the heart, or over a pregnant
there any adverse reactions?
Adverse reactions are usually limited
to minor discomfort. Excessive stimulation
can produce a muscle spasm or soreness
like that which occurs after excessive exercise.
Patients should remove all credit cards, computer disks, and other
magnetically encoded cards or car keys from their pockets to prevent them from becoming corrupted.
this treatment covered by my insurance?
The FDA has approved NeoTone for bulk muscle excitation,
relaxation of muscle spasms, maintaining or increasing range of
motion, prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy, muscle re-education,
increasing local blood circulation, and immediate post-surgical stimulation
of the calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis. The FDA is currently reviewing the following applications: chronic pain and inflammation, fibromyalgia, and reduction
of edema. Almost all insurance carriers cover the approved treatments. Using this treatment, the doctors at Alternative
Medicine Pain Management have broken the pain cycle in many patients
who were so sensitive that they could not withstand even the most gentle techniques.
There have been excellent results in patients suffering from spinal
and other large-joint arthritis, muscle spasms, and chronic pain. Many patients request this treatment before manipulation because it relaxes them and makes the manipulation easier to administer. NeoTone treatment is
as effective on seniors as it is on young athletes.
Neotonus, Inc., has
collaborated with the Georgia Institute of Technology and the
Emory School of Medicine to develop a revolutionary new treatment
for stress, urge and mixed incontinence in women: Extracorporeal
Magnetic Innervation, or ExMI. This truly innovative technology
combines a basic principle of physics with the body's own physiology
to provide a therapy that is totally non-invasive, painless and,
most importantly, effective. ExMI's pulsed magnetic field pass
through all body substances without attenuation, delivering a
therapeutic action and then exiting without a trace.
