A quick overview of how we use the Phoenix at our office to treat pain and injuries.

Quick Start Up, controls and getting to the Phoenix Waveform.

  1. The first 3 time the battery is charged, be sure not to interrupt the process until complete, which takes about 12 hours. If the unit is plugged in for longer periods the battery will not be damaged. However, much longer than a complete charge will warm the battery and wear it out faster.
  2. There are TWO sets of programs with in the Phoenix Edition. Phoenix program and the Globus Premium Sport / Fitness programs. ONLY USE GLOBUS MyoTrode Electrodes with your Phoenix.
  3. The Phoenix Program is the one that contains the unique combination of AC (Alternating Current) and DC (Direct Current). The typical Globus, does not contain this AC/DC waveform.
  4. The Phoenix Edition also contains the Globus Premium Sport & Fitness Training Program. For information on the “traditional” Globus Premium programs please refer to the Globus Premium Sport User Manual.

Phoenix Intro.

“Hunting Technique” was something I was introduced to from the Therastim Manual from PhysioDynamics. The Therastim Manual states “Normally, the techniques in this manual will handle the majority of the situations encountered; however, on some occasions, “hunting” the pain will be required.”

“This involves moving the pads around on the body until the patient can report a stimulation effect exactly in the injured portion of the body.”  

In this video, Dr. Jeff shows how to do a similar technique with the Phoenix.

Strength Training With the Phoenix Waveform
Like the Therastim, the Phoenix Waveform and electric stimulation device unlike the majority of EMS modalities on the market today. 
By using a unique combination of AC (Alternating Current) and DC (Direct Current) the Phoenix is able to create a dynamic and adaptive environment within the body. When the Phoenix waveform when coupled with our guidance and proprietary protocols help people of all ages and abilities RISE UP, achieve amazing results and become the person or athlete they have always wanted to be.
