At Neuragenex, we take a neurofunctional pain management approach to treating knee pain, focusing on understanding the underlying cause of your symptoms and finding a way to reduce or eliminate them.
We developed our Neuragenex protocol as a safer and more effective alternative to traditional medications and procedures like cortisone injections and surgery. Our holistic approach is designed to reduce inflammation, improve joint function, and provide long-term relief from chronic knee pain, allowing you to avoid resorting to:
- Pain medications: Painkillers only offer temporary relief and come with a risk of dependency and side effects.
- Chiropractic treatment: Chiropractic manipulation can be dangerous for the knees, as it involves forceful stretching and twisting of the joint. Not to mention that very few regulations surround the practice, and some chiropractors may not be qualified to perform this type of treatment.
- Invasive procedures: Surgery can be time-consuming, expensive, and risky. Additionally, the results may not always be successful or long-lasting.
With this in mind, the following are the components of our Neuragenex protocol for knee pain:
Electroanalgesia For Knee Pain
Electroanalgesia is a drug-free, non-invasive, FDA-approved therapy that helps reduce pain by stimulating the nerves in the affected area. It is based on the science of electrotherapy, where electrical impulses are used to modify pain signals in the brain and reduce inflammation.
Electrical currents block the pain signals sent from the injured area and promote the release of endorphins, which act as natural painkillers.
It’s important to note that although electroanalgesia uses electrical currents, it’s very different from TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). TENS is designed to provide short-term pain relief for acute conditions, whereas electroanalgesia offers longer-term relief for chronic conditions.
Electroanalgesia isn’t commonly used by general practitioners because, although proven effective, it’s a long-term treatment solution. Most doctors will, unfortunately, resort to quicker solutions, such as prescribing pain medications, even though they are less safe and less effective over the long term.
The more often you undergo electroanalgesia, the longer the pain relief effects last. It’s why our protocol recommends at least two treatments a week for a 12-week period for optimal results.
IV Therapy For Knee Pain
IV therapy is a treatment method that involves the use of special nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and homeopathic compounds to reduce pain in the knee joint. It does this by providing the body with essential nutrients and minerals required for optimal joint health, as well as the building blocks to help repair damaged tissue.
Not to mention that rehydrating the knee joint helps reduce swelling and inflammation, thus providing relief from knee pain.
The nutrients are delivered through an IV directly into the bloodstream, allowing them to take effect quickly and completely bypassing the digestive process. This means the nutrients are delivered directly to the affected area, providing relief faster than oral supplements.
When it comes to our Neuragenex protocol, we tailor the IV treatments to the individual, ensuring that they get the exact nutrients and minerals required for optimal joint health. We do this by evaluating each patient’s bloodwork to determine any underlying deficiencies contributing to their knee pain.
Lifestyle Counseling For Knee Pain
At Neuragenex, we believe that knee pain is never just a physical problem. Our approach to treating knee pain always involves lifestyle counseling. We believe that addressing the root cause of knee pain is essential to achieving long-term relief.
Our team works with each patient to understand their lifestyle, diet, work environment, and other factors that could be impacting their knee pain. This allows us to provide tailored advice on how to adjust lifestyle habits for improved joint health. We also focus on education, helping patients to understand the importance of regular exercise and why it is necessary for knee pain relief.
By addressing all aspects of knee pain, we can ensure that our patients get lasting relief from their symptoms and continue to enjoy life without knee pain.
