Pain and Opioids are an enormous and growing problem

More than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. The cost of pain in theU.S. is $600+ billion a year in medical treatments and lost productivity.

Pharmacies dispense more than 214 million opioid prescriptions per year in the US. That’s more than 65 prescriptions for every 100 people. More than any other country in the world.

U.S. Opioid epidemic will claim 1MM lives by 2020. Every day, 175 Americans die from drug overdoses – the equivalent of a 737 jet crashing every day!

What can you expect with TrueRelief treatments?

Typical treatments range from 10-20 minutes for most acute injuries or conditions, or 15-25 minutes for more complex chronic conditions.

The number of treatments required varies by condition. Some patient require as few as 1-4 treatments, while others (usually with long standing chronic pain) may require 4-8 treatments.

TrueRelief treatments have a cumulative effect so treatments should generally not be spaced more than every third day and usually every other day is optimal. In some acute cases and some post-surgical cases, initial treatments may be called for every day.

Arthritis in knees, plantar fasciitis in feet

“Bottom line, I can play sports again, pain free, thanks to you and TrueRelief! I was truly amazed that after just one short session on my feet that I immediately stepped on the floor without pain. In addition, I played softball that night without pain in my knees for the first time in years. I had so much fun, I felt like a kid … running around just to run around. Even after only two sessions, the pain and swelling of both my feet and knees are virtually gone. I was in the Army for over 22 years resulting in arthritis in both of my knees, plantar fasciitis in both my feet, and several other injuries that kept me from fully enjoying life after military retirement. Now, I play softball four nights a week, and baseball one day a week, with little to no pain. Thank you for changing my life!”

Rudy V. Byron, Jr. M.D.

Board Certified Family Medicine

“Before I was exposed to TrueRelief five years ago there were not many options to address a chief complaint of pain other than pharmaceutical management (pain pills) such as anti-inflammatories… Having TrueRelief as a tool to treat pain has been a game changer in my practice… The speed with which it works is nothing short of astounding.”
