Electroanalgesia For Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain
Electroanalgesia is a non-invasive method of pain management that uses high-pulse electrical stimulation to manage chronic and acute pain. This technique enhances the body’s natural healing processes by targeting specific areas of the body that are inflamed or injured. It can help reduce muscle spasms, decrease pain and inflammation, and enhance circulation.
Additionally, the use of high-pulse currents helps block the transmission of pain signals from the source to the brain and releases endorphins to further assist with pain management.
Unlike TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) therapy, which is a short-term solution for pain management that uses low-pulse electrical currents, electroanalgesia is more effective at providing long-term relief from pain due to its ability to target the underlying cause of the pain. In fact, electroanalgesia is an FDA-approved treatment that has been around for decades.
As part of our Neuragenex protocol, we recommend that patients with rheumatoid arthritis undergo two rounds of electroanalgesia therapy each week for at least 12 weeks. This is because the effects of electroanalgesia last longer the more often it is used.
IV Therapy For Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain
Because the main culprit for pain in rheumatoid arthritis is swelling and inflammation, we also recommend that patients undergo IV therapy as part of our protocol. This is because IV therapy involves infusing nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes, directly into the bloodstream to reduce inflammation, boost immunity, and improve overall health.
When using IV therapy to treat our patients, we evaluate each person’s bloodwork to determine which nutrients are most beneficial for their particular condition. From there, we can create an IV protocol tailored specifically to patients based on their deficiencies.
As such, IV therapy can be incredibly effective when it comes to long-term pain relief, especially when combined with electroanalgesia therapy.
Lifestyle Counseling For Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain
In addition to electroanalgesia and IV therapy, we also offer lifestyle counseling as part of our holistic approach to treating rheumatoid arthritis. This is because lifestyle modifications, such as diet and exercise, can have a huge impact on pain management for those with rheumatoid arthritis.
We take a personalized approach to lifestyle counseling, helping patients create individualized plans that can help them better manage their symptoms on a day-to-day basis. We focus on diet modifications such as adding anti-inflammatory foods, increasing fiber intake, avoiding processed and sugary foods, and drinking plenty of water.
We also recommend exercise to help strengthen muscles and reduce stiffness, as well as stress management techniques.
Our comprehensive lifestyle counseling program, combined with electroanalgesia and IV therapy, helps patients manage their rheumatoid arthritis pain in the long term and prevent the recurrence of symptoms. We believe that treating the whole person, rather than focusing on just one aspect of their health and wellness, is essential for ongoing pain relief.
