All you need to know about Nurokor

What is NuroKor?

NuroKor is a natural pain management system that works to ease or eliminate pain without having to take pain relief. It is something that I, as a pharmacist am delighted to be able to offer to patients as an alternative to taking pain-killers. It is a new technology that is scientifically backed and has shown great results in people for pain management. It is specifically designed for those who suffer from both acute and chronic pain. The most attractive thing about this device is that patients can get long-lasting results from it.

How does it work?

Pain always starts at a particular point in the body, it then travels via the spinal cord and arrives in a part of the brain which allows us to feel it. NuroKor technology manages pain in different ways to interrupt this pathway and give you relief from the pain. NuroKor works by using three core bioelectronic technologies which are Peripheral Nerve Stimulation, Neuromuscular Stimulation and Microcurrent. There are different purposes for each and unique benefits of using them.

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) works by delivering gentle bioelectrical currents through the skin to the nerve endings in the affected area which manages the pain signal that travels from the point of the pain to the brain and it also may encourage the release of the body’s natural pain killers and feel-good chemicals call endorphins.

Microcurrent interestingly cannot be felt by the person however, are very effective in treating nerve and muscle pain as well as inflammation and scar tissue. The results from using a microcurrent are longer lasting pain relief that can be felt in the days after and it also can play a significant role in the healing process.

Who is it for?

Anyone with chronic or acute pain. The devices are used to:

  • Reduce pain & inflammation - Whether you are an elite athlete, arthritis sufferer, diabetic patient or worker with a musculoskeletal problem - the positive impact of PNS on all types of chronic and acute pain is profound. 
  • Increase strength & mobility - the same NMS modalities that allow athletes to increase muscle mass and gain strength can be used to improve muscular health and circulation in the elderly, obese and diabetics. 
  • Optimise recovery - Reduce muscular soreness after exertion. MCS can have beneficial effects in wound healing and different frequency treatment applications can promote recovery, reduce inflammation and aid in tissue repair. 

Who should not use it?

It is very important to note that there are some people who should consult their doctor before using this device and they include: Those who are pregnant, prone to seizures, have severe heart disorders, have cancer or are recovering from cancer.

This device should NOT be used by those who:

  • have a pacemaker or any other kind of electronic implanted device in their body
  • have epilepsy
  • are suffering from a Deep Vein Thombosis (DVT) or blood clotting.
  • have a cochlear hearing implant
  • are under 37 weeks pregnant on the torso. It can be used on the arms and legs in pregnancy once your doctor has been consulted.
