What is PainWave?

Watch our video explanation

PainWave is an FDA-approved, revolutionary method that uses Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) technology to target areas of the brain that affect how the nervous system responds to pain, and works toward reversing pain. Many times a patient’s pain is initially treatable, but after an extended period can become unmanageable and overbearing. PainWave technology can be used to slowly reverse the neuropathic pain condition, non-invasively to rejuvenate the mind and free the patient from pain, medications, and even depression.

PainWave aims to treat neuropathic pain conditions, providing patients an answer to chronic, long-term pain.

How does it work?

During the first visit, a thorough review of the pain conditions is assessed in order to develop a good diagnostic realization of the pain syndrome. Then, with PainWave therapy, magnetic resonance is used to change the neurochemistry that was once affected. An electromagnet about the size of your hand uses a magnetic energy, much like an MRI, to reverse the neurochemical changes that can be caused at the initial onset of an injury.

In the initial visit, the patient will sit in a comfortable chair. While the patient is awake and alert, an electromagnetic coil that rests within a small curved device will begin to stimulate the patient’s head on one side, focusing the magnetic energy into the brain to begin to reverse the neurochemicals causing pain conditions. A patient can immediately resume normal activities following a treatment, which takes just over an hour to complete. PainWave is a completely non-invasive, non-medical technology. Follow-up sessions are brief, lasting 37 minutes on average.

PainWave Therapy is FDA approved to treat depression, and does so without the use of medication. Over the course of two months of therapy, patients not only experience less pain, but may also notice the reversal of previously existing symptoms of depression.

At the Dallas Pain Relief Institute, Dr. Rodriguez will begin by attempting to treat patients conservatively. Depending on the patient and the symptoms, conservative treatments may fail, paving the way for PainWave Therapy to help alleviate pain and begin the recovery process. Every patient has a unique pain condition, and Dr. Rodriguez’s goal is to make sure that he treats each person, not just the disease. Below are just a few of the common sources of pain that PainWave can help eliminate.

Who developed PainWave?

Dr. Rodriguez is a fellowship-trained interventional pain physician and anesthesiologist. He received his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center and completed his residency at Mayo Clinic. Dr. Rodriguez is dedicated to the eradication of pain and continued his training in pain management at Mayo Clinic, which is ranked among the best in pain management in the U.S. according to the U.S. News & World Report.
