Electro-Neuro-Adaptive-Regulator (ENAR) Pain Therapy
ENAR therapy is simple, if you have a condition which has pain as a symptom, then ENAR can help with your pain. Pain is a hindrance to recovery, and while chiropractic care provides great relief, in some cases a helping hand to reduce symptoms improves the effectiveness of the chiropractic adjustments. In the end it’s all about faster, better results for you.

What does the ENAR acutally do?
Controlled studies on the ENAR have been done by the Chiropractic Department at Macquarie University. These test have shown that ENAR can have a profound effect on both chronic and acute painful conditions and injuries that may not respond to other forms of treatment. Their results showed that:
It relieves pain fast - often within minutes
Improves function and reduces disability
Remarkably accelerates recovery times
Finds hidden / referred treatment points
Creates extended / sustained outcomes.
Where does it come from?
The ENAR was developed in Russia in the late 1970s by a team of doctors and scientists during the space race. Physicists were developing biofeedback and energy medicine as massive government funding was poured into the American and Russian space programs. Astronauts and cosmonauts could not take pharmaceuticals for every possible condition, therefore another form of treatment was needed, prompting the development of energetic and biofeedback medicine for healing. ENAR therapy was born. More than 6,000 practitioners across Russia now use this therapy including within hospitals, and more than 500 in the UK. It is growing rapidly in Australia and gained prominence at the 2000 Olympics when the Russian team used it to allow athletes to continue competing even after sustaining serious injuries.
How does the treatment work?
The ENAR is operated by placing the device on the skin where it collects electromagnetic signals that are modified and sent back through the body. This ‘biofeedback’ feature is what distinguishes it from TENS machines and other electrical therapies. A TENS machine sends out a continuous signal to which the body can acclimatise and eventually no longer respond to. As the ENAR’s signals are constantly variable this prevents the body from adapting to the therapy.
The primary aim of ENAR therapy is to create change, for example;
Pain to less pain
No sensation to sensation
General issues to specific complaints
How long does the treatment take?
Your treatment program will depend on the injury or problem you have, and whether it is a recent acute injury, or chronic. Acute injuries (e.g. a sprained ankle) respond best to daily treatment of 10-15 minutes in the first week. Chronic conditions may require 30-45 minute treatments twice weekly for a course of 10-12 appointments. Please note this is a guide only.
