One in five people worldwide is affected by chronic pain. Back pain is particularly common. This pain is often treated with medication – with the risk of severe side effects. Auricular vagus nerve stimulation (aVNS) can be used to treat pain without these side effects. How it works? The aVNS relieves pain without the well-known side effects of medication. The minimally invasive method works with three small needle electrodes that a doctor places in the auricle. The vagus nerve is electrically stimulated via these electrodes. The stimuli are transmitted directly to the brain, where they stimulate the body's own mechanisms for pain relief. The aVNS therapy using VIVO allows the treatment to be adjusted depending on personal pain perception and thus promises lasting results. By using three small needle electrodes in the auricle, aVNS therapy using VIVO is minimally invasive and well tolerated compared to medication.
