University of Florida News – Pill-Free Pain Relief

24 Mar

This article brings about a few interesting questions. Can these ‘good vibrations’ really help people with chronic pain? Also, how long does the effect last? If there is any truth to this research, can a patient create their own way of experiencing the vibrations necessary for pain relief? Is there hope that this would treat all pains? These are but a few of the questions I have for this research. I think that a pill-free treatment option for chronic pain that works would be worth the money. I just wonder if these vibrations are causing more of a placebo effect then actually providing pain relief. I know that this could be hell for those with skin hypersensitivity as any stimulation of the nerves would be excruciating. Interesting nonetheless…
