Article: ‘Write’ here to Ease your Pain

Telegraph Logo

“Dear Doctor – I have fibromyalgia, with tender, painful muscles. I’ve been referred to a pain clinic, but wonder if you have anything to suggest? Fibromyalgia is a painful condition with localised areas of tenderness known as trigger points, which may form fibrous nodules. A number of complementary options can help, including acupuncture, osteopathy, chiropractic and magnetic therapy. A device that reduces pain using a similar approach to TENs (transcutaneous electro nerve stimulation) has now been developed. Known as the PainGone* Pen, it is placed over a painful trigger point and a button is depressed to release a controlled electronic current that helps to block the transmission of pain signals. A pain clinic in Sheffield used the device on 50 people with chronic myofascial pain associated with trigger points in the lower back or large joints. The study found that using the pen four times a day for two weeks significantly reduced pain and increased mobility. It can also be used to reduce pain in other conditions.”
