Rebuilder Treatment

At East Bay Chiropractic we pride ourselves in staying up to date with all the newest technology and treatment options available to better serve our patients. That is why we are proud to feature the latest in Peripheral Neuropathy treatment using the Rebuilder.

What is the Rebuilder?


The ReBuilder is an intelligent medical device that fits in your hand and sends tiny electrical signals to your nerves and muscles.

These signals are an exact copy of healthy nerve signals, calming erratic nerve signals, strengthening muscles and restoring local blood flow.

How does the ReBuilder® work?

The ReBuilder works by measuring the status of your nerves and then treating them with tiny healing impulses specifically tuned to your individual dysfunction 7.83 times per second to provide for a gentle coaxing of your nerves back to full function.


When you first turn your ReBuilder on, it sets its output parameters for your physical mass by measuring the electrical analog and digital impedance of your body. It knows if it is treating a 125 lb woman or a 350 lb man. If you use the ReBuilder directly on your lower back, it knows that. If you are using it on your legs or hands, it knows that too. You need a different voltage and current signal for variations like these. This is a unique safety feature of the ReBuilder. No other device offers this level of safety.


The ReBuilder then sends out a "test" signal that represents the most common waveform for healthy peripheral nerves. This signal goes from one foot, up the leg to the nerve roots in your back, down the other leg, to the other foot.

It then waits for an echo -like response from this initial signal. This phenomenon is similar to the patella reflex when your doctor hits just below your kneecap with a little rubber hammer and your leg kicks out.

When this initial signal reaches the other foot, an automatic response sends a signal back to the ReBuilder.


The ReBuilder analyzes this returned signal in a split second and analyzes for returning waveform for aberrations.

Abnormalities in the shape of the waveform on the way up indicates issues with numbness; the shape of the top of the waveform indicates the ability of the nerve to deliver the signal long enough for the brain to receive it all; abnormalities in the downward slope of the waveform indicates pain, and the shape of the refractory period below the baseline (as the nerve cell repolarizes itself) indicates the ability of the nerve pathway to prepare for the next signal.


The ReBuilder then creates a compensating waveform (similar to the Bose headphones that cancel out the background noise on airplanes). Where there is too much energy displayed, the ReBuilder adapts the treating waveform to reduce that energy. Where the waveform indicates too little energy, it increases the energy in that area. This process goes on 7.83 times every second, sending a signal, analyzing the returning signal, creating a compensating signal, and sending this new signal.

The reason for the 7.83 Hz frequency is that it takes time for the nerve cell to re-polarize (or reset) itself between its transmission of nerve signals. Minerals have to squeeze through little holes in the cell wall, and then return. This takes time. We have found that if we slow down the treatment to 7.83 times per second, it gives the nerves time to re-polarize and get ready for the next signal.


In effect, the ReBuilder acts like a pacemaker works for your heart's electrical signals. If the pacemaker does not send exactly the right signal, then the four chambers of the heart may not pump in the right order and if the signal is too fast or too slow, the heart stops. So, too, the ReBuilder's precisely controlled waveform coaxes your nerves to transmit their signals in the proper order.

You can think of the ReBuilder as a pacemaker for your nerves.


The ReBuilder also stimulates the muscles of your calves to enhance blood flow in your legs (or hands) by making use of the body's natural skeletal blood pump system (venous muscle pump)

One interesting, beneficial side effect of the ReBuilder...

When used at bedtime, most patients report that they can sleep better without their pain.

The ReBuilder is truly a medical marvel!
