Neuropathy Pain Therapy Treatment
While pain medications can temporarily relieve pain, they may also produce undesirable side effects or even result in dependence of the drugs.
That’s why we offer alternative therapies for opioid-free acute, sub-acute and or chronic pain patients.
One of the most effective non-surgical, drug-free treatments we offer is Electroanalgesia (EA) by NeuroMed with the NeuroSanos software version 5/1.0 is a FDA cleared medical device that has clinical indication of use to:
1) Stimulate peripheral nerves for the purpose of providing pain relief.
2) Increasing local blood circulation.
3) Management and symptomatic relief of chronic (Long-term) INTRACTABLE PAIN.
How It Works
If you have ever had physical therapy, you may be familiar with TENS (Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation), an external device that reduces pain by applying low voltage of electricity and low dosage through small electrodes placed over the skin. For example, TENS units deliver 1 to 250 pulses per second, and delivers about 25 Ma dosage.
Similar in concept to TENS unit in delivering stimulation, Electroanalgesic treatments also use high electrical energy 8,300 to 10,000 pulses per second (frequencies) and also high dosage of energy (as high as 100Ma) to block pain. Due to lowered skin resistance, this electrical energy is delivered deeper into the patient’s tissue to block pain signals.
Rather than stimulate the nerves like a TENS unit, higher frequency energy and higher dosage of energy can reduce the ability of the affected nerves to transmit pain signals and, at the same time, promote healing. It’s like a nerve block with electrical energy instead of an injection (such as an epidural). With the correct dosage and electrodes, Electroanaglesia (EA) can safely and effectively decrease pain intensity, providing patients with an improved quality of life.
This treatment modality, often termed as “Physical Medicine Treatment” and “Electroanalgesia” (EA) therapy, utilizes the application of frequency .1 – .5 Hz (Physical Medicine Treatment) and 5,000 Hz, 8,300 Hz (Electroanalgesia) achieve a variety of therapeutic actions including reduction of edema, and inflammation, analgesia, and facilitation of metabolism in the neuropathic extremity.
Electroanalgesia (EA) is accomplished by placing special designed conductive sock or hand garment electrodes over the treatment area. The strength of EA treatment is to reduce the ability of the affected nerves to transmit pain signals and, at the same time, promote healing by means of the depolarization effects on the nerve cells.
This medical device uses specific patented pre-programmed software algorithms to bioelectrically trigger different desired physiological mechanisms of actions from frequencies starting at .1 Hz – .5 Hz (for stimulation) then changing throughout the treatment to include a 5,000 Hz frequency. This technology also uses a High Definition frequency generator (HDfg)™ that can produce much higher frequencies, (8,300 Hz) to inhibit the nerves. EA technology is continually using a specific 1) carrier frequency, 2) and physician is changing the intensity (dosage) of the current to precisely match parameters delivered at the appropriate time.
Electroanalgesia are very successful. Results show that 75-80% of patients get better with treatment and have lasting results; however, there is no guarantee of success. Note that 20-25% of patients will claim they received little or no long-term relief. For this reason, other treatment options should be added or considered.
