At Neuragenex, we believe it is essential to treat IC pain holistically to provide lasting, long-term relief. That’s why our Neuragenex protocol takes a neurofunctional pain management approach to address the underlying causes of pain associated with IC.
Our protocol is designed to correct abnormal nerve signaling, improve bladder function, and reduce inflammation to provide lasting relief from IC pain.
As such, we implement several pain management strategies, including electroanalgesia, IV therapy, and lifestyle counseling, all of which are effective at providing long-term results. Additionally, our approach allows us to avoid the use of potentially risky treatment solutions, such as:
- Pain medications: Painkillers may provide temporary pain relief, but they don’t address the underlying causes of your pain. Not to mention, they can be addictive and come with a host of potentially serious side effects.
- Invasive procedures: Invasive procedures, such as surgery, tend to be expensive and can lead to various physical complications. Additionally, they can cause significant emotional stress, and there’s no guarantee they will be 100% effective.
- Chiropractic treatment: Chiropractic care is risky and has been known to lead to further physical damage. On top of that, there’s no scientific evidence that it can provide effective pain relief for patients with IC.
Electroanalgesia For Interstitial Cystitis Pain
Our Neuragenex protocol utilizes a cutting-edge treatment known as electroanalgesia, an FDA-approved technology designed to help patients with chronic pain. This non-invasive treatment works by stimulating the nerves in the bladder and pelvic region using an electric current. This current helps to:
- Release endorphins: The body’s natural pain-fighting hormones help reduce inflammation and provide pain relief.
- Block pain signals: By blocking the transmission of pain signals from the bladder to the brain, you can experience relief from IC symptoms.
- Reduce muscle spasms: Electroanalgesia can help relax the muscles in the bladder and pelvic region, which can then reduce painful spasms.
Although electroanalgesia might seem similar to TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), the two treatments are different. TENS is designed to provide short-term pain relief using low-pulse currents.
Electroanalgesia treatment is capable of providing long-lasting pain relief due to the use of high-pulse currents. To be as effective as possible, we recommend two sessions of electroanalgesia therapy a week for 12 weeks as part of our Neuragenex protocol.
IV Therapy For Interstitial Cystitis Pain
Intravenous (IV) therapy is an effective, non-invasive treatment option for patients with IC. This method of therapy involves delivering a blend of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream intravenously. This enables your body to absorb the vitamins and minerals quickly, allowing you to experience the benefits almost immediately.
IV therapy is particularly beneficial for IC patients because the combination of nutrients and fluids helps to reduce inflammation, thereby relieving IC pain. Additionally, IV therapy effectively replenishes your body’s depleted nutrient stores, allowing it to heal and repair itself more quickly.
At Neuragenex, our IV therapy is tailored to your individual needs to maximize the efficacy. To achieve this, we evaluate each patient’s individual bloodwork to determine what combination of fluids and nutrients will be the most beneficial.
Lifestyle Counseling For Interstitial Cystitis Pain
At Neuragenex, we understand that treating IC pain is about more than just providing medical care. It’s also important to consider the larger picture by addressing any lifestyle issues that could be contributing to your symptoms. That’s why our Neuragenex protocol includes lifestyle counseling services for all our patients with IC.
Our team of counselors will work with you to develop an individualized plan that takes into account all aspects of your life. This could include identifying triggers that worsen your symptoms, such as certain foods or psychological stresses, and then creating strategies to help you avoid them.
We also offer guidance on how to make lifestyle changes, such as improving your diet or increasing your physical activity, that can help you better manage your IC pain.
Ultimately, our goal is to provide comprehensive and holistic care for interstitial cystitis patients so that they can experience lasting symptom relief. Our lifestyle counseling services are designed help you create sustainable changes that will manage your symptoms in the long term.
