“My name is Dr. Jaret Walker. Since 2005 I have used the VST on my patients with Neuropathic Pain, also known as Peripheral Neuropathy or Nerve Pain. I have treated well over 300 patients over the last 9 years. I can tell you the success achieved for my patients by using the VST is amazing. When a patient has nerve damage many different symptoms are possible: burning, tingling, pins and needles, numbness, tight band, electric shock, dull ache, etc. These symptoms usually start in the toes and slowly advance over time, sometimes as high as the knee. Some patients get the same symptoms in their fingers and hands. There are hundreds of reasons why people can develop Neuropathic Pain. Some of the more common are Diabetes, neck and lower back conditions, and chemotherapy.
I can tell you the success achieved for my patients by using the VST is amazing.
“Without question I recommend the VST to my patients that have Neuropathic Pain. After treating over 300 patients with thousands of patient treatment hours performed, I have so many wonderful stories regarding their life-changing results. Here are a few: significant or complete nerve pain resolution, cessation or decrease in daily oral medications for the nerve pain, sleep improvement, balance improvement so much that they stop having to use a cane, able to wear shoes for the first time in years, able to drive a standard vehicle again because they can feel the pedals, able to dance again, fewer falls, and so many more.
Not every patient of mine has benefited greatly from the VST, but there is no question that the overwhelming majority of patients have done so. I have recommended the VST to my patients for 9 years and continue to do so today. I believe the VST is a much better option for my patients than taking oral medications for the rest of their life. I hope if you choose the VST for your Neuropathic Pain the results are life-changing.”
“I started using the VST back in the summer of 2005, in Podiatric Medicine, for post-operative rehabilitation and specific foot/ankle injuries including sprains, strains, muscle tears and bone fractures. After a brief amount of time using the VST I began to explore VST usage on other inuries and pathologies and began treating Sports Medicine cases in the area of College Football and Baseball. I then was able to partner up with collegues who treat injuries in professional golf and proceeded to use the VST and treated injuries to golfers on the PGA Tour in 2007. Within the time fram of 2005-2007, I successfully treated patients in the medical disciplines of Neurology, Orthopedics/Sports Med., Podiatry, Pain Management and Wound Care.
During these years, my clinical experience and collaboration with other healthcare professionals using the VST, we have uncovered probably the most significant treatment outcome to date, not only in Podiatry and Neurology but also in medicine itself, and that is the ability to treat and cure the symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy.

ing ALL forms of tissue trauma and injuries. I can now perform Therapeutic treatments on patients with less discomfort to the patient resulting in improved treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction. This is especially true in the area of Orthopedics where successful rehabilitation of joint injuries and surgeries is predominantly dependent upon painful joint mobilization and stretching to achieve goals. As a clinician, using the VST and its tissue healing properties, I am now afforded the ability to treat cases I would never have been able to treat successfully before – or at all – because traditional Therapy had no treatment mechanism. These cases would include Headache syndrome, Migraine headaches, lower extremity PVD, edema and the biggest of all being Peripheral Neuropathy, especially Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy. Now being able to treat these conditions expands my clinic’s treatment focus, greatly increases my referral base/types of referrals and resulting profit margin.
The future remains bright and exciting as we continue to perform further studies and research on the VST treatment efficacy of Peripheral Neuropathy. No other physical treatment exists for this pathology and the enormous market/population base that suffers from Diabetes and the resulting Neuropathy disease will yield great dividends for successful treatment. I continue today using my VST in the clinic and my patients continue to reap the rewards it produces for them.”
“My name is Thomus Hull. I am a physician practicing in Washington state and Idaho. Treatment of neurogenic pain has been a part of my practice for the past 35 years. I have been using the V-Care VST units in the treatment of approximately 250 neuropathy patients for the past year. It is without a doubt the best treatment modality I have ever seen for neuropathic pain associated with diabetes and other medical problems leading to peripheral neuropathy. We have maintained detailed records of patients response to treatment in all of these cases, and have found that approximately 70% of patients experienced significant clinical improvement in their symptoms, especially in regards to burning pain, shooting pain, tingling, numbness, and balance. In many cases, VST was used together with regional nerve block, which led to enhanced improvement. However, in many of these patients, VST alone was also found to have a significant impact on their neuropathy symptoms. Most reported improved walking ability, better balance, improved sleep, and other improvements in quality of life.

We have also had an opportunity to try VST on several patients with other regional neurogenic pain syndromes, and have found it to be of significant clinical benefit in several of these patients. Almost all reported improved pain control, improved sleep, increased regional circulation, a reduction in stiffness in joints and muscles, and improvement in peripheral circulation. All of these patients had tried many other treatment modalities, without success.
Every physician who deals with neurogenic pain patients will tell you that treatment is very problematic for most of them. Medications are sometimes of value, but come with a long list of side effects. Other treatment modalities such as physical therapy, are of little value in most cases, in my experience. VST has proved itself to be the most effective treatment option for most neurogenic pain patients.
“I first started using the VST in my practice in 2005. Since then, this device has changed the landscape of our practice. We’ve expanded the physical size of the practice, to dedicate space specifically to the VST, because of the success of the treatment program, but more importantly are the outcomes we’ve achieved with the changes we’ve made to how we treat our patients.
The VST is prescribed to our post-operative patients to reduce swelling and pain, and to increase range of motion and strength. One of the most notable outcomes is the range of motion – especially with bunionectomies. Soft tissue conditions also benefit for the same reason. Patients are able to recover from the soft tissue tears and/or surgical repairs much quicker when treated with the VST.
We also us the VST to treat conditions that, quite frankly, medicine just didn’t have a very good answer for. Poor or non-healing wounds or incisions are one example. We now use the VST to facilitate the healing process for these patients, which of course, eliminates a number of other complications that could arise with open wounds. Edema control in the lower extremities’ tissues and joints is another example. A couple of common conditions that cause this are Peripheral Vascular Disease or Peripheral Artery Disease.
The biggest break-through, however, would have to be the device’s efficacy with the treatment of peripheral neuropathy (PN). PN is a disease that unfortunately medicine just didn’t have a viable treatment option for. Now that I have treated hundreds of PN patients I can say with confidence the VST is effective for these patients and best of all it’s non-invasive.

I have to say it’s quite amazing how the treatment impacts my patients. The post-op patients routinely comment how they recovered much faster than others they know that had the same procedure done elsewhere (without the benefit of the VST treatment) as do our soft-tissue patients. I can’t even begin to tell you how many patients with PN have come to our office with a less than dismal hope of getting better and rightfully so. Every treatment that has been tried has failed, otherwise s/he would not be in my office, but when we are able to eliminate or significantly reduce the symptomology and improve the patient’s quality of life they too become believers – and in many cases champions for the treatment.
The service and support provided by the staff at VCARE is also something that has always impressed me. Because of the “size” of our program, we requested several customized forms which VCARE provided for us, bet even on an on-going basis, VCARE continues to support our program; they notify us of any changes that affect the treatment or billing/coding for the treatment.
For all of these reasons a so many more, I am a huge supporter of the VST Myodynamic Device and the program VCARE developed to facilitate and support the implementation of this treatment option. Bottom line: We (the physicians) love it because it works and the patients love it – and – financially it makes a lot of sense.”
