Peripheral neuropathy is a very painful condition that affects numerous people each year in the United States. It occurs when damage or disease has occurred in the nerves that carry messages from the brain and spinal cord to the entire body.
Peripheral nerves come from the spinal cord and flow out along lines in the body named dermatomes. When one of these nerves becomes injured, it can affect one or more dermatomes, causing pain to then emit out to specific areas of the body.
This style of nerve damage can interrupt communication between the brain and other portion of the body. It also can impair muscle movement, inhibit normal feeling in the arms and legs, and cause pain which can sometimes be intense.
Reasons For Peripheral Neuropathy.
People develop peripheral neuropathy for several reasons. It can be acquired through diabetes, poor nutrition, disease, or infection. It also may possibly be hereditary, although this is not as typical.
And in some cases, the original cause of peripheral neuropathy is never identified. This is called idiopathic neuropathy and as many as a third of all those in Gretna, LA, with peripheral neuropathy fall under this category.
Solutions for Peripheral Neuropathy.
While pain medications can temporarily relieve neuropathy pain, they may also produce undesirable side effects or no results.
That’s why we are offering alternative therapies for opioid-free / drug fee for acute, and or chronic neuropathy pain or circulatory disorders symptoms 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.
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.
Easing the Pain of Peripheral Neuropathy.
Because peripheral neuropathy can be such a painful condition, stopping the suffering is generally leading treatment priority.
