Rogue Medicine Adopts Cutting-Edge Treatment for Chronic Pain

December 2016

Rogue MedicineAt Rogue Medicine (702 Ramsey Ave., Suite 120), Heather Kahn, MD, is introducing biofield therapy to Southern Oregon using the Alpha-Stim device. It is a safe, effective, non-pharmacological choice for anxiety, insomnia, depression and chronic pain management using a microelectric current to promote healing and reduce pain.

Dr. Kahn, who has lived in the Rogue Valley for twelve years and went to medical school at the Chicago Medical School, has always been interested in science-based integrative medicine and learning new, cutting-edge, effective healing modalities.

“The Alpha-Stim has been approved by the FDA for 20+ years and is used extensively in the military and Veterans’ Affairs,” Dr. Kahn said. “It can be used in a clinical setting or at home. Doctor and patient surveys show it helps 90% of patients, providing lasting results without the risks of dangerous side effects and addiction. It is supported by over 985 completed independent research studies and published reports.”

The device uses a microelectric current to promote healing and reduce pain.  Because it uses only a microcurrent, the treatment is painless. It is especially effective for fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis of the knee, low back pain, depression, insomnia, and anxiety.  It is an effective replacement to opioid and psychiatric medications.  Compared to traditional drug therapies, it is extremely cost effective.

Rogue Medicine is a medical clinic serving the Rogue Valley with a dedicated group of 14 professionals who provide traditional medical care, integrative medicine and biofield therapy, nutrition counseling, on-site aesthetics, on-site lab services, and on-site behavioral counseling.  Rogue Medicine was the first solo-practice recognized by the State of Oregon as a Patient Centered Primary Care Home.

“Patient Centered Primary Care Homes facilitate partnerships between individual patients, their primary care physicians, specialists, pharmacists, care facilities, and when appropriate, the patient’s family,” Dr. Kahn said. “Our clinic provides empathetic care for more than 3,800 patients.” 

Currently Rogue Medicine is accepting referrals for the treatment of all types of pain.  Rogue Medicine and AllCare Health are working on a six-month pilot project for the treatment of pain.  
Rogue Medicine is hoping more insurance companies will follow AllCare’s lead to make this device widely available to decrease use of potentially addictive pharmacologic medications and the cost of healthcare.
