SCENAR (Self Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulator) is a medical technology originally developed for the Russian space program. Completely non-invasive, SCENAR delivers gentle, therapeutic electro-stimulation, onto and through the skin, to prompt the body’s natural adaptive response for the relief of acute and chronic pain and physical dysfunction. Essentially, the device assists the brain’s ability to initiate the healing response most suitable to each person.
SCENAR therapy is a form of “reflex biofeedback,” which involves detecting and interpreting the internal neural communication within the body, then helps the body correctly evaluate an injury or other problem area.
The SCENAR Device
The SCENAR device sends out a series of electrical signals through the skin and measures the response. Each signal is only sent out when a change, in response to the previous signal, is recorded in the electrical properties of the skin. SCENAR treatment acts as a catalyst to prompt the body to produce the right healthy chemicals (called “regulatory peptides”) it needs. These peptides reestablish the body’s natural physiological state and are responsible for the healing process. As these peptides last up to several hours, the healing process will continue long after the treatment is over. As a result, you may end up feeling some of the after effects for a few hours after the treatment, but this is normal, and is indicative that the body is undertaking steps to heal itself.
The treatment process takes about an hour, while acute injuries may only require about 30 minutes of treatment. During the treatment, Dr. Ridley will be “brushing” the device over your skin, and asking about the types of sensations you’re feeling. This type of feedback will be critical for her to better understand where the treatment is most needed, and the type of impact the device is having.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Ridley at LiveWell Chiropractic and Wellness Center and find out if you are a candidate for treatment with SCENAR.
