Electroanalgesia For Restless Leg Syndrome Pain
Electroanalgesia is a non-invasive, painless form of electrotherapy that stimulates the nerves in the affected area. This electrical current helps reduce pain and inflammation, relaxes muscles, and improves leg circulation.
It does this by blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain, which reduces the intensity of the pain and stimulates the nervous system to release endorphins – the body’s natural painkillers.
It’s important to note that electroanalgesia differs from TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). TENS is a device that uses low-pulse electrical currents to provide temporary pain relief, whereas electroanalgesia uses high-pulse currents to offer more effective, longer-term relief.
Although electroanalgesia is an FDA-approved treatment that has been around for decades, it’s not commonly used by medical practitioners because it requires numerous sessions. Unfortunately, many healthcare professionals take shortcuts when they can by instead prescribing painkillers or surgery, which are riskier and often less effective.
At Neuragenex, our treatment plan involves two sessions of electroanalgesia therapy per week for 12 weeks total. For every round of treatment you have, the results become more and more effective and longer lasting.
IV Therapy For Restless Leg Syndrome Pain
IV therapy is one of the most effective ways to provide pain management relief for a wide range of conditions, including RLS. The treatment involves a specialized solution consisting of nutrients and fluids carefully tailored to patient needs.
IV therapy is so effective because it bypasses the digestive system, allowing for the direct delivery of nutrients to the cells and tissues. This helps to reduce inflammation in the body, which can help relieve RLS pain. It also helps to boost energy levels and improve overall health.
At Neuragenex, we offer IV therapy as part of our comprehensive RLS treatment plan. We will tailor our treatment based on your bloodwork to get the best outcome. For example, because iron deficiency can contribute to RLS, we may include iron supplements in your IV therapy.
Lifestyle Counseling For Restless Leg Syndrome Pain
At Neuragenex, we understand that pain relief from RLS is not just about the physical symptoms. Our lifestyle counseling seeks to address the underlying causes of the condition, such as stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and other lifestyle factors.
We believe helping our patients make healthy lifestyle changes can reduce their RLS symptoms and improve their overall health.
Our lifestyle counseling sessions are tailored to each patient’s individual needs. During the sessions, we discuss how lifestyle factors, such as nutrition and exercise, can impact RLS symptoms and provide guidance on how to incorporate healthy behaviors into daily life. We also offer resources and tips to help patients stay on track with their lifestyle changes.
