Treatment Modalities

The Pain Management Center offers numerous approaches to the management of pain. Some of our techniques include:

  • Scrambler Therapy (A Technique developed by Professor Marineo that has obtained exclusive worldwide distribution rights to a pain management therapy for treating oncological/neuropathic pain. The method, that has been experimented by Professor Sabato and his colleagues in the 90’s at the University Tor-Vergata, incorporates an electromedical equipment for electronic nerve stimulation, and uses the nerve fiber as a passive means to convey a message of normality to the CNS by a procedure defined as scrambling or mixing of information, which then enables the CNS to modify the reflex adaptive responses).
  • PST (Pulsed Signal Therapy) – for the treatment of Osteoporosis and Arthrosis
  • Percutaneous neuromodulation
  • TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
  • Laser Therapy
  • QST (Quantitive Sensory Testing)
  • Biofeedback
  • LEP (Laser Evocated Potential)
  • PBK
  • PICC (Peripheral Intravenous Center Catheter) TEAM – PICCs are inserted in a collaboration between specially trained nurses and anesthesists in order to assist patients suffering from Non-Malignant and Malignant Chronic Pain
  • Medications Management
