Background and aims: Chronic neck pain is a common condition entailing the high cost of pharmacological treatment, but it has limited evidence of efficacy and side-effects. This study aims to examine the effectiveness of a new therapy, SCENAR therapy, on pain and disability in patients with chronic neck pain through comparison with Transcuteneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy.
Methods: We studied 30 elderly patients with chronic neck pain of more than 3 months duration. The subjects were randomized into two groups receiving (1)SCENAR therapy or (2)TENS therapy (control); three times a week for two weeks. The patients were assessed before and after 2-week treatment using three measuring tools such as Numeric Rating Scale (NRS), Neck Disability Index (NDI), and Range of Motion (ROM).
Results: The SCENAR group showed significantly improved results in NRS, NDI, and ROM after intervention, as did the TENS group.(p<0.05) The comparison of mean changes in the SCENAR group(12.36) before and after intervention showed superior results in the NDI when compared with the TENS group(3.950).
Conclusion: The findings show that both SCENAR and TENS are effective treatment for patients with chronic neck pain. Patients who underwent SCENAR had a significant improvement in Neck Disability Index (NDI) than the TENS group.
We are pleased to inform our customers of Home and Professional SCENAR devices that the new online Course – SCENAR Meridian Stretch Technique – is available at our SCENAR Training web site.
The SMST is a revolutionary treatment technique developed by the Japanese SCENAR master practitioner and Naturopath Toshi Kobayashi.
The technique combines the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the SCENAR technology. Each meridian is treated with SCENAR and stretched at the same time providing instant pain relief, increased mobility and clearance of blockages. Easy to understand and implement the course is suitable for both beginners and professionals, with or without basic knowledge in TCM. The course includes information about the meridians, where and how to treat the meridian and a short video showing the stretch technique using a SCENAR device.

RITM OKB ZAO was created in May 1980. The name of the organization was “Special Design Bureau of Medical Information-automated diagnostic systems (“MIDAS”) at the Taganrog State University of Radioengineering ”. Wherefore was a new OKB established? Soviet Union began to fall behind the Western countries in the field of medical equipment; this gap became more noticeable in the end of 80’s. The task for the new design office was to eliminate this gap.
In 1983 OKB “MIDAS” was renamed to OKB “RITM” at TRTI; in 1998 the organization got its current name RITM OKB ZAO. From the outset the key activity of OKB was the development of health systems and devices for the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases and also systems and devices for psycho-physiological assessment. Centers for training pilots, sailors, divers and representatives of other sensitive occupations were interested in cooperation with RITM OKB. One of the most important customers was the Cosmonauts Training Center.
The first contract for the development of SCENAR device was signed on December 12, 1986 with some mysterious company, which had only the mailbox – G-4897 instead of the address. One could highly likely state that it had been one of the units of the USSR Space Agency. The new SCENAR device was immediately put to clinical studies. The studies gave so unexpected results that in the late 80’s there emerged a high demand for SCENAR-therapy. A large number of patients made it possible to generalize the obtained results, which contributed to the emergence of a new trend in medicine – SCENAR-therapy and a new medical specialty – SCENAR-therapist.
The creators of SCENAR-therapy were two physicians. Yuri Gorfinkel was the author of subjectively dosed mode (SDR) of the device. He passed away early because of his participation in the clean-up operations of the Chernobyl disaster. Alexander Revenko was the author of individually-dosed mode (IDR). Both of these techniques are classic and complement each other. As time went on SCENAR therapy techniques became more complicated. As the result SCENAR therapy trainings emerged both in Russia and abroad. There is one fact that indicates a high level of new OKB: the first director and the chief developer of OKB was Vladimir Zaharevich, who later became the first rector of the Southern Federal University (SFU). He has been in the position of the general director since January 1981 till April 1990. He was replaced by Rudolf Kryukov who left good memory about himself. After that RITM OKB ZAO was helmed by Yakov Grinberg from November 1998 till September 2012. He was replaced by SCENAR-therapist and businessman Yuri Starovoytov. During his leadership the company has managed to evict the trademark SCENAR and to initiate a new economic policy.
As a result the SCENAR-therapy has been recognized on all five continents, in more than 30 countries, including the Netherlands, England, Bulgaria, Germany, USA, Canada, Australia, Mexico, South Korea, etc.
For those who are interested in becoming SCENAR Trainers, we have a good news!
The Train the Trainer Seminar which we organized in April in Sydney with the master SCENAR Practitioner and Trainer Dr. Iosif Semikatov is already uploaded on our training web site – www.ritmscenar.com.au.
Quick and Effective Lower Back Pain Treatment with the SCENAR Device
In this world of increasingly sedentary lifestyles and long hours behind a desk or doing manual labor, lower back pain is a common problem that chronically affects many people. We feel it and think it’s just a part of life; take a pill to numb the pain, or try methods like physiotherapy and other alternatives but nothing seems to really work. It’s something that can’t be ignored, no matter how hard we try, and there is a way to ease the stress and other issues caused by lower back pain.
How Back Pain Affects Other Areas of Life
Lower back pain may not stay in the area where it originates but instead may radiate to the limbs, especially the legs and feet, making all kinds of movement painful and difficult.
Physiotherapy may end up neglected due to ineffective pain management and the side effects caused by chronic lower back pain.
Everyday life, including working and caring for a family, can become impossible without proper pain relief from this condition.
Sports injuries, surgeries, and all kinds of bumps and bruises incurred in life can cause chronic back pain that never seems to go away. Not only is this uncomfortable but it can also result in depression and extra stress all the time.
In addition to the pain, discomfort, and possible depression resulting from chronic back pain, fatigue is a common side effect for those who suffer from this condition.
Natural pain reduction is a feasible option for alleviating lower back pain caused by any of these issues as well as others. If you’ve tried alternatives in the past, you may feel exhausted by the ones that didn’t work. Don’t give up trying, though. There is a treatment for your chronic back pain that will work!
SCENAR therapy for natural pain reduction is not like other alternative methods for treating chronic back pain. For one thing, the patient can administer treatment on their own at home after some instruction. The process is simple and has no reported side effects to worry about. SCENAR works using electrical stimulation to improve energy balance and helps your brain convert messages to your muscles from pain to pain relief.
One of the methods you can use is outlined below:
Choose setting based on stage of pain (see pages 21-23 from your device manual).
Place the device on the skin – near the lower back area.
Set the energy level to a comfortable ‘tingling’ sensation by pressing the pressing the “+” or “-” buttons.
Slide the device electrode slowly and firmly on the area of therapy as outlined in the image for 8-10 minutes. If you find an area of resistance, move the device against this area of resistance until it changes to an area of no resistance.
Hold the device on any area of resistance for 1 minute.
Change the device to the FM mode then massage the area again for 5 minutes as outlined in step 4.
It only takes a few minutes a day to see results and the SCENAR device doesn’t only assist in pain relief. You can improve energy balance, achieve muscle stimulation, and improve many of the side effects you’ve experienced over the years.
