Some Questions asked by a First Time User

  1. When you feel a contraction of the muscle how long do you stay on the point?
    A. The machine works on a motor point which all muscles have-the electrical stimulus “shocks” the motor point to contract and relax the muscle. Do not fatigue the muscle …4 to 5 contractions at the most, then move around the area, and eventually return to see if the pain has eased. You must work the patient slowly through the pain.
  2. If you do not notice a contraction in one particular place do you move on or stay in that place.
    A. If you have no contraction you have no motor point so move on slightly.
  3. If you do not notice a contraction in the area you are working but the patient feel the electric stimulation, does the patient still receive a benefit from the treatment in that non responsive place?
    A. The purpose of the treatment is to increase circulation.
  4. By increasing the intensity to the maximum the patient can handle, does the patient get the maximum benefits from the treatment?
    A. Not necessarily – only to breakdown old adhesions to get elasticityback in the muscles. Otherwise use the machine to get the blood moving.
  5. If the muscle has a strong contraction does this mean that that is the place you must work on more?
    A. Yes – the motor point of the muscle.
  6. If the muscle has a strong contraction does this mean the muscle is more damaged than if the contraction is less?
    A. No – just a large muscle and a good motor point to stimulate. A damaged muscle will give you the same pain when activated by the machine.
  7. Instructions refer to moving from muscle to muscle and to turndown intensity when moving to different muscles. Should one become familiar with the muscle structures?
    A. Yes, experiment all the time – the fitter the muscle the less current you have to use to stimulate it.
  8. It is noticed that the patient feels the electric stimulus more intensity in these areas where the muscle cover is thinner?
    A. Lack of muscle. No move over them you will do no good – only the muscles that move increase the blood flow and cure.
  9. Is it better to work one side of the back at a time?
    A. Work evenly at all times – cover as much area as possible to stimulate the circulation around the injured section.
  10. Is it better to start working the top of the back first and work downwards?
    A. Either way is ok.
  11. If that is so, is it necessary to spend more time on the weaker side?
    A. You must work the area until it starts to tire. Each time will be longer before fatigue sets in as the muscle strengthens, but move all around as above.

A Motoring Analogy which may help you

  1. You enter the car( position patient on body electrode)
  2. Insert key and start motor (connect fly leads and switch on transeva)
  3. Engage “drive” and move slowly ahead ( apply mobile electrode and increase intensity to lightly stimulate target area)
  4. Turn off engine at the end of drive ( remember to turn the machine down to 0 before switching off)
