At Neuragenex, we implement a holistic approach to pain management. We recognize that there are multiple components of IBS-related pain and discomfort, which is why we have developed a comprehensive protocol that can help you manage it all.
Our neurofunctional pain management approach to IBS involves a combination of techniques, including electroanalgesia, IV therapy, and lifestyle counseling.
This unique combination of therapies is designed to restore balance to your nervous system and reduce pain, all without having to depend on potentially risky and ineffective treatments, such as surgical procedures or chiropractic care, both of which can result in physical complications.
Our protocol also allows you to avoid using pain medications which, while sometimes effective in treating symptoms in the short term, do not address the underlying cause of IBS.
Not to mention that pain medications often come with potential side effects and can be habit-forming. With that in mind, the following briefly explains our treatment solutions and how they can help you manage your IBS-related pain.
Electroanalgesia For Irritable Bowel Syndrome Pain
Electroanalgesia is an FDA-approved pain management technique involving high-pulse electric currents to stimulate the nerve endings underneath the skin. This high-frequency current interferes with pain signals, which helps reduce the symptoms of IBS.
It also helps increase the release of endorphins, the natural pain-relieving hormones in your body. Finally, this technique can also reduce inflammation, which is often linked to IBS.
Although similar to TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) in its use of electrical stimulation, electroanalgesia is different in that it employs higher pulse strength and frequency. This allows for deeper penetration into the area affected by IBS and can help reduce the intensity of pain over the long term. In contrast, TENS is only effective for temporary pain relief.
Our Neuragenex protocol calls for at least two sessions of electroanalgesia therapy over the course of 12 weeks. This length of treatment is required to ensure that the treatment is effective and to reduce the recurrence of IBS-related pain. The more often you undergo electroanalgesia treatment, the longer-lasting and more effective the pain relief will be.
IV Therapy For Irritable Bowel Syndrome Pain
IV therapy is a common type of treatment that involves infusing vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. By delivering nutrients to the body in this way, IV therapy ensures that the cells get the nutrients required to function optimally and reduce inflammation.
IV therapy is particularly beneficial for relieving IBS symptoms because it helps to improve digestive health, reduce inflammation, and restore balance to the body.
At Neuragenex, we tailor our IV therapy treatment plans to each individual’s needs after carefully evaluating their bloodwork. Depending on your specific condition and symptoms, our team of expert practitioners will prescribe a personalized IV therapy plan that may include a variety of vitamins, minerals, and herbs to support your body’s natural healing processes.
Lifestyle Counseling For Irritable Bowel Syndrome Pain
Our neurofunctional pain management approach to IBS also includes lifestyle counseling, which is essential for helping our clients maintain relief from IBS-related pain. We understand that everyone’s lifestyle habits affect their health, and thus we work with our patients to identify any potential triggers or sources of stress that could be causing or worsening their IBS symptoms.
We will work with you to create a plan to improve your overall health and well-being, addressing any issues such as poor nutrition, lack of sleep, or stress that could exacerbate your IBS symptoms. Additionally, we provide education and resources to help you understand how best to manage your IBS symptoms in the long term.
