It is not unusual for patients to suggest a treatment option that's unfamiliar to their physician. Your physician might not know about the PainX® tDCS System as a treatment option for fibromyalgia or migraine. Since you will need to receive PainX® treatment at your doctors office, Soterix Medical has developed an information page designed to help you start a conversation with your physician about the therapy.
The unique Soterix Medical PainX® System offers a new option in managing chronic pain. If you or a loved one might benefit from PainX®, please contact us online and a Soterix Medical representative will be in touch soon.
How does it work?
While you sit, electrode patches are applied to the head using a specially designed cap or strap. Wires connect the patches to a small battery-powered device that can be placed on a table next to you. For about 20 minutes, mild direct electrical current (DC) then stimulate specific positions of our brain to reduce the pain. Patients typically report a mild tingling sensation during the session that stops at the end.
Is the PainX® tDCS System covered by insurance?
No, at this time the PainX® is not covered by insurance, please check back regularly for updates on reimbursement.
How much does the PainX® Therapy cost?
Your doctor will discuss with you billing options. Typically, patients pay per session (doctors visit) with 4-6 weeks of regular therapy recommended. For example, if you receive 4 sessions per week for 5 weeks, that is 20 sessions. Often, after benefiting from PainX® therapy, patients may choose to visit their doctor again if symptoms return, for a "booster" session.
