How DR-HO'S® Pain Therapy System Works

DR-HO'S® Pain Therapy System is a professional TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) device used by Chiropractors and Physiotherapists. It was developed by Dr. Michael Ho, a Chiropractor and Acupuncturist, at his Pain and Headache Clinic in Toronto, Canada for his patients. Read below to learn how the Pain Therapy System works to relieve pain, reduce muscle tension and spasms, increase tissue oxygenation and increase circulation.

To relieve pain

A traditional TENS unit only blocks the pain temporarily. Traditional TENS machines provide stimulation at the same frequency, and over time the body adapts and stops responding. DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System is different because it provides 12 different types of stimulation that vary in frequency, waveform, ramp speed, and intensity. It’s also programmed to automatically change the stimulation at random to prevent the body from adapting. These 12 different types of stimulation simulate soothing and relaxing massage techniques. The most important difference about DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System over the traditional TENS machine is that it is proven to provide pain relief in as little as 20 minutes of use.


To reduce muscle tension and spasms

Spasms of skeletal muscles are often a result of overuse, dehydration, or from electrolyte abnormalities. A spasm is painful, abrupt, and often requires immediate relief. Clinical studies conducted at the University of Waterloo used electromyography (EMG), a diagnostic procedure that attaches electrodes to the skin and takes recordings of the electrical activity of muscle tissue, to test the Pain Therapy System’s effectiveness in reducing muscle spasms. This procedure found that using DR-HO’S®Pain Therapy System significantly reduced muscle spasms.


To increase tissue oxygenation

The body must maintain a stable level of oxygen saturation to ensure the proper functioning of the organs, brain, and heart. Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) is a method used for medical and physiological diagnostics, and is capable of measuring blood flow and the rate of oxygen consumption in the body. This non-invasive method showed that individuals using DR-HO’S®Pain Therapy System showed a significant increase in tissue oxygenation.


To increase circulation

The muscle oxygenation signals received while patients used the Pain Therapy System indicate that the Pain Therapy System’s ability to increase tissue oxygenation also results in an increase of circulation. Using the Pain Therapy System can encourage blood to circulate and therefore transport nutrients, oxygen, blood cells, and other nourishment that helps fight diseases and maintain a healthy body.
