Scenar - Is the pain bad enough to try something new?

Scenar and Sports Injuries

Scenar pain relief for sport injuries


Scenar is used by many in top-level sports

Scenar is very effective with most sports and exercise injuries, speeding up recovery times for  muscles and ligaments that are painfully overstretched, sprained, or torn. Even recovery times for fractures and cartilage tears are reduced, injuries that would otherwise sideline players for two or three times longer.

So Scenar is now a preferred treatment for increasing numbers of top sportsmen, ballet dancers, musicians and other celebrities (see also Entertainers). Presumably as a form of competitive advantage, or in deference to their PR handlers, this isn't publicised very much, although there have been some mentions (see Press Coverage).  


Dan LugerScenar in Rugby

" I've used (Scenar) for problems with my neck and groin and there's no doubt it speeds up recovery. " England rugby international Dan Luger in The Daily Mail, October 2003  

" I am no medical man, so I cannot say for sure how much I owe to the machine (Scenar). But put it this way, the day before I started using it, I did a 20-minute run on the treadmill and really struggled on level 8. After three days of treatment, I did the same run on level 15 and didn't feel it at all. " England rugby international Mike Catt in the Mirror.  

Other members of the England rugby team, Danny Cipriani, Andy Gomersall and Jason Robinson have all acknowledged their gains from using InterX, a Scenar offshoot.

American Football stars have also been using InterX, including players in the Miami Dolphins and the Dallas Cowboys.


Scenar in Tennis

Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova has also ackowledged using InterX.


Scenar in Surfing

Hear what seven times world surfing champion Layne Beachley says about her Scenar experiences: 

Other top surfers who have acknowledged using Scenar frequently include Barton Lynch and Karl Attkins.


Scenar in World Athletics

The first time Scenar really came to the attention of people in the West was its use on Russian and Ukranian athletes at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney: Russian athletes were observed going straight back into competition after their injuries had been treated with Scenar  (see Injury and Fatigue in Athletes, and Super Marathons). 

Athletes in some other countries took notice, especially in Australia. At the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, the Australian team had the services of several Scenar therapists to help, in particular Olympic snow boarding gold medal winner Torah Bright, luge champion Hannah Campbell-Pegg and four-time Olympian and Gold medal winning beach voleyball athlete Natalie Cook. 

In February 2012, an article on PRWeb reported that " Australian athletes preparing for the London Olympic Games are using Ritm Scenar®, a 'secret weapon' to treat acute, chronic and post operative pain caused by common sports injuries. Olympic hopeful Emma Nedov, a teenage gymnast from Sydney who is the reigning Commonwealth World Junior Champion on the beam apparatus has been using Ritm Scenar® since she was 10 years old and credits the device for enabling her to recover from her frequent injuries and get back to training in the shortest possible time. Together with Jo Brigden Jones, who has qualified for the London Olympics in the Sprint Kayaking event, they are using Ritm Scenar® as a vital element in their Olympic preparation. " 

Here's what Theodora Spathis, a Sheffield-based personal trainer and heptathlete, and another Olympic hopeful told the Sheffield Star about how Scenar improved her chances of selection for the (Australian, country of her birth) 2012 Olympic athletics squad: “ Scenar therapy has played a massive part in my recovery, without a doubt. I would not have recovered in time without it. It has made all the difference. I had an Achilles tendon injury in May last year, tried a few remedies, acupuncture, physio, herbal but nothing worked - this has.”  

Canadian world champions who have sung the praises of Scenar include Kimberley Joines, several times world para alpine ski racing champion, and Cindy Devine, several times world downhill biking medalist. Three-times U.S. national figure skating champion Jonny Weir also has regular treatments.


Scenar in Football (Soccer)

Chelsea Football ClubThe  largest Russian Scenar site has "thank yous" from the Chelsea soccer team, and its billionaire owner Roman Abramovitch, and from some of the Real Madrid team.

AC Milan are using InterX, and Dinamo Minsk have used Scenar since 1992.

Various other top footballers or teams have been using Scenar treatments for years.


Scenar can help most sports injuries

Most injuries from sports and exercise will respond well to Scenar treatment. Some of the most common are:

  • sprained ankle or twisted knee 
  • torn hamstring or quadricep muscles 
  • torn ligaments 
  • broken ankle, wrist, leg or arm 
  • plantar fasciitis 
  • shin splints 
  • ruptured achilles tendon 
  • tarsal or metatarsal injuries 
  • rotator cuff tear 
  • tendonitis or bursitis 
  • lateral/medial epicondylitis (tennis/golfer's elbow) 






Please note that these pages are for general information and not in any way intended to help you diagnose a medical condition. You should first seek a diagnosis from a doctor, and, if you decide to try Scenar therapy, work with your doctor in assessing the progress of the condition and the dosage of any drugs you may be taking.





Terry Waller, Insurance Manager, London (Frozen Shoulder)

"After lifting some heavy machinery, I found that trying to raise my left arm above my waist was very painful. My osteopath told me I had a frozen shoulder and although I got some relief from his treatment, he said it could take up to 12 months for things to normalise. Some weeks later I was introduced to Paul and his Scenar equipment. I was a little sceptical at first but after 2-3 sessions I began to notice improvement. To my amazement, after just 8 sessions I realised that I could raise my left arm as high and easily as my right. It's now just over a year later and I have remained completely pain free ever since. There is no hard sell with Paul who I found to be very knowledgeable and a consummate professional."

John Hayward, Engineer and Landscaper, Westham, Sussex (Neck + Shoulder Pain)

"The pain had reached levels that stopped my physical workload. The diagnosis was nerve compression due to an old injury to the C5/6/7 vertebrae. After four Scenar treatments, I was able to stop the painkillers. After three months and 10 treatments I can sleep on my side again, write and sign my signature fluently again, turn my head fully to the right and left..." 

Six months followup: "I'm doing heavy physical work again as part of my job, and despite needing occasional top-ups, I'm basically pain-free. Altogether, a phenomenal success."

Don Elwick, Managing Director, Brighton Media Centre (Cracked Ribs)

"On December 21st, 2009, I went out running, slipped on some ice, and fell heavily on my back. A nurse and a doctor both confirmed I had two or three cracked ribs. I spent the next week hardly sleeping due to the pain. On December 29th I saw Paul Lowe for a Scenar treatment, and that night I slept properly again. Over the next few days, almost all the pain had gone. I had a second Scenar treatment January 1st, and on January 4th, the doctor found it hard to believe there was nothing left from the accident."

"I had a very painful injury to my leg and I tried several therapies. Scenar was the best for really deep healing. Thank you Paul."

Tali Saar, Shiatsu and Cranio-Sacral Therapist, Lewes, Sussex (Facial Paralysis)

"I was treated by Paul Lowe for facial paralysis, I also had pain in my face and ear canal. The pains disappeared after the first two treatments, and soon there was a huge improvement in the paralysis and my energy levels. The treatments reminded me of a deep, relaxing place I had lost for many years. I experienced changes at many levels, far beyond my original symptoms. Paul has been both supportive and inspiring. He is a unique practitioner with vast knowledge in his field."

Erica Yonge, Energy Therapist, Marlborough, Wiltshire (Back Pain)

"Paul, I just wanted to say thank you so much for sorting out my back problem so effectively with Scenar. I was told I had a potential herniated disc in my lower back, and I was in a lot of pain for many years. In recent months, I was frequently unable to stand up straight for minutes at a time. After six Scenar sessions, not only am I completely pain free in my back for the first time in years, but my posture has corrected itself naturally. I wouldn't have believed I could be this pain free after so many years of pain.

Eighteen months followup: My back is still very good and posture is better than it's ever been. If you weren't so far away, I'd come for regular top-ups!"

Lucienne Atkinson, Business Owner, Oulston, Yorkshire  (Back Pain)

"Life had been years of debilitating pain. I was at my wit's end. Finding Paul Lowe and the Scenar treatment has been nothing short of a miracle for me. After two long treatments with him, the worst problem area for pain changed, almost disappeared."

18 months followup: "It's truly a miracle. I have gone back to the athletic person I was before. I can train hard on my mountain bike for 3 or 4 days in a row with no back pain!"

Tim Cornwall, Works Manager, Herstmonceaux, Sussex (Back Pain)

"I've had hip and lower back problems for over 30 years. This episode was the worst I've had for two years: I could hardly walk or drive. Until now, I'd go to the chiropractor for several treatments and take at least three weeks to recover. With Paul it took five days and four Scenar treatments to get back to normal. On day 1, I could barely walk. On day 3, I took the dog for a one-hour walk."

Barry Chapman, Designer, Hove, Sussex (Leg pain)

"I would recommend anybody with health challenges to talk to Paul. I had a combination of polymyalgia, extremely sore feet, low energy and limited mobility. I thought I had tried everything and had resigned myself to sliding down the slippery slope. Paul, his guidance and treatments, gave me hope when I had none, and for this I am extremely thankful. I've adjusted my lifestyle and diet and worked hard. I am now fit, energetic and strong."

Angela Gilroy, Media Designer, London (Back Pain)

"When I hurt my lower back, the pain made it impossible to move my right leg backwards when walking, so I had to shuffle. Paul Lowe gave me a brief Scenar treatment that night and I felt some relief immediately and got a good night's sleep. The next morning he gave me a full back treatment, and this produced a major change. It still felt a little tender but I could walk around almost normally."

Marco Crivello, Artist, Lewes, Sussex (Shoulder + Back Pain)

"I had acute pain in my right shoulder. I tried osteopathy and cranio-sacral over several weeks, but with negligible results. Paul treated me with Scenar daily for four days, and by the end I was pain-free. On another occasion, I was in acute pain months after Achilles tendon surgery -- after one treatment from Paul, the pain went away. I also threw my back out twice. Each time, one Scenar treatment was enough to put it back to normal."

Stephanie Davies-Arai, Sculptor, Lewes, Sussex (Back Pain)

"I was rushed to hospital on three occasions and given four strong painkillers including morphine. I finally collapsed at work in agony, unable to walk. After 10 daily treatments with Paul, I was able to stop the painkillers and drive 80 miles to a work event."

Six months followup: "I'm still pain free."

Phil Turtle, Company Director, Brighton  (Fracture, Post Surgery)

"I broke the humerus bone in my arm and had it operated on, in January 2014. I then had frequent Scenar and pulsed electromagnetic field treatments from Paul Lowe and quickly regained use of the arm. Five weeks after the operation, I saw my consultant and he was obviously shocked at how 'back to normal' my arm was at such an early stage."

Dolores Goodey, School Teacher,  Newhaven, Sussex  (Chronic Whiplash Pain)

"It works, and I tried everything. I have more energy and I'm sleeping well. I used to get aches all the way down my back but not now. I'm also impressed that the treatments had such long lasting effects."
