Curatronic’s new Combination High Power PEMF-LED Probe is an extraordinary, new tool designed for rapid, effective pain therapy.
Bill G shattered his calcaneus in a fall from a roof. He came to our clinic eleven months later and after foot reconstruction surgery with chronic pain he scored three on a zero to 10 scale. After 10 minutes of therapy with the Combination High Power PEMF-LED Probe, pain was gone. Swelling was reduced, and color around his ankle improved appreciably right away. Over a course of ten sessions, his heel, ankle and foot have continued to heal visibly. Afternoon edema is no longer a major concern, range of motion is greater, and baseline pain is less than one. Bill is thrilled, and so are we!
HIGH INTENSITY, TARGETED PEMF-LEDT
The Combo Probe delivers extreme, high intensity, combined PEMF and LED therapy in a compact, handheld applicator. If you have come to view PEMF as a staid and conservative method with incremental results, think again! The Combo Probe’s field of 150 milliTeslas is 3,000 times greater than earth’s.
The Combo Probe simultaneously produces 2 Watts of 640 synchronized with the high intensity PEMF in a pulse sequence which changes every 60 seconds. When treatment is given to single area for one, ten minute cycle, the Combo Probe will have administered 37.5 Joules/cm2 there, a considerable dosage likely to achieve analgesia effectively on its own also joined with the highest intensity PEMF we have ever seen in a Curatronic product.
APPLYING THE COMBO PROBE IN PAIN
The Combo Probe can be set to treat at low, medium or high intensity, for five, ten or fifteen minutes. We recommend staying with high intensity for almost any joint or soft tissue pain. (An exception would be in long-standing, chronic pain where there is acute inflammation, i.e. a knee which is hot to the touch – reduce intensity and/or treatment time here.)
One cycle of ten minutes at high intensity over a painful joint or soft tissue area has significantly reduced pain for us nearly every time. A back and/or hip or other larger area may (or may not) justify a second, ten minute application.
For best results in pain therapy, always treat in full contact (or as close to it as anatomy comfortably allows). Through contact treatment, optimal forward transmission of light is achieved, and more photon energy will reach deeper to improve patient outcomes.
Moving over a painful joint or area of soft tissue area as the Combo Probe’s manual recommends has worked very well. Our advice is to limit your treatment to the immediate area around one ankle, knee, elbow,or shoulder joint or soft tissue area for every 10 minutes of therapy. We usually ask patients to do it, spending at least half of a ten minute treatment cycle directly over the point of greatest pain. If pain is confined to a small area and can be located very precisely, our counsel usually would be to ask the patient to hold the Combo Probe in steady contact there for the full ten minutes.
****A huge, added bonus with the Combo Probe is that treatment usually can be unattended, freeing up valuable time for the clinician. In our experience most patients enjoy and are fully capable of treating themselves successfully with instruction – so long as the targeted joint or soft tissue is comfortably within reach. Who better to do it? 
Case Study – Spinal Stenosis/Pain/Limited Mobility
Richard B was an 85 year old diabetic male with a history of spinal stenosis, back surgery and arthritis who had been essentially chair bound for several years during the day. Chief complaints were 1) difficulty in walking or standing for any length of time and 2) low back and leg pain and numbness which quickly intensified intolerably whenever he tried. Richard slept in his chair much of the day.
With integrated Combo Probe and laser therapy, he regained mobility and resumed activity almost immediately. He installed a new faucet in a bathroom after the second visit and began doing other work around the house again. Richard decided he was ready to be discharged after just six treatments. We were skeptical. On follow up by phone one month later, he continues actively engaged in daily life with little limitation or discomfort. In light of his diagnosis of spinal stenosis and clinical picture at the outset, the speed and degree of Richard’s recovery is astonishing.
The Combo Probe is a ground breaking product which in our experience can make a positive difference in most pain on its own. When we have combined it with other methods such as laser therapy, already positive outcomes have been enhanced, or so it has seemed to us and to our patients.
Patients appreciate the Combo Probe for its 1) efficacy, 2) quick treatment time and 3) ease of application – as do we. Yet the greatest gift of all for us has been a feeling of liberation and new found freedom to focus our energies elsewhere in the clinic. Our patients clearly enjoy treating themselves, and perhaps they appreciate the results even more because it involves them actively in therapy. They are happy. We are happy – and plan to take full advantage of the free time!
Something new which quickly and effectively treats pain and enhances other methods is rare and noteworthy. Reader, are you taking note?
The closest comparison to how this feels for us is the joy experienced when first seeing patients recover from seemingly intractable pain through laser therapy 20 year’s ago. Our enthusiasm and appreciation for lasers has only grown since. The Combo Probe feels like that.
Ours was a prototype provided for clinical testing. We used it hard for over six months with most patients, and it performed beautifully.
Yet a weak point was the way in which the cable was wired directly into the unit. The manufacturer corrected this right away. Now the 3.5 meter cable interfaces through a connector and can be changed immediately at need (as illustrated above). We do encourage you to purchase an extra cable with your Combo Probe to have in reserve as even the best cable will fail eventually.
With PEMF of 150 milliTesla and 2 Watts of led light simultaneously being generated by the Combo Probe, heat is an unavoidable byproduct. Our experience has been that the Combo Probe is well accepted and comfortable when used for two, immediately consecutive, 10 minute cycles, and some patients will be comfortable with a third cycle.
The Combo Probe is a highly worthwhile, new tool which has enhanced outcomes in pain therapy for us significantly. Therapy is quick, well accepted and can often be unattended.
If you already own a Curatronic PC2000, adding the Combo Probe promises bring a whole new dimension to what you can accomplish with it. You will need to upgrade to new software to handle the higher power. In light of the results we’ve seen, this decision would be a no-brainer for us.
If you are treating pain but do not yet own a Curatronic system, the Combo Probe, in and of itself, is excellent reason to purchase one. Highly recommended.

 Although we may not be able to prove that outcomes are better when patients treat themselves, ours clearly enjoy it – and our own belief system is that whenever an individual invests personal energy in his own care, that effort will inevitably be rewarded.
