Electroanalgesia For Interstitial Cystitis Pain
Our Neuragenex protocol utilizes a cutting-edge treatment known as electroanalgesia, an FDA-cleared 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.
