(1) MIRE or a Monochromatic Infrared Photo Energy device is a FDA-approved Anodyne® device. Infrared therapy systems are medical devices that increase circulation and reduce pain, stiffness, and muscle spasm. Infrared light penetrates more deeply into the body and works better than red or blue light, for instance.
(2) TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation is an electronic signal treatment, which when applied uses surface electrodes to give mild electrical current to the skin nerve fibers. The amplitude is adjusted to above or below the patient’s sensory threshold.
(3) NERVE BLOCK requires a chemical injection (a nerve block) to control pain and reset normal nerve sensation.
