Electroanalgesia For Sciatica
Electroanalgesia is an FDA-cleared electrical stimulation therapy solution that works by blocking pain signals from being sent to the brain and stimulating the release of endorphins. This safe and non-invasive treatment option can provide long-term relief from sciatica pain, weakness, and numbness.
It’s essential to differentiate electroanalgesia from other types of electrical stimulation therapies, such as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). Electroanalgesia was designed to provide long-lasting relief from chronic pain. In contrast, TENS therapy was designed for temporary relief from acute pain. This is because TENS uses low-pulse electrical impulses to stimulate the nerves (usually no more than 400 pulses per second), while electroanalgesia uses high-pulse electrical impulses (a Neuragenex electroanalgesia device delivers a standard of 8,300 pulses per second).
A higher pulse rate allows electrical currents to penetrate deeper into the tissue, which is why it’s more effective at blocking pain signals to the brain and releasing endorphins.
IV Therapy For Sciatica
IV therapy is a popular treatment option for a variety of chronic conditions, including sciatica. IV therapy works by delivering a combination of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients into the patient’s bloodstream. This is a great way to promote healing in the body and reduce inflammation (which can be a major cause of sciatica pain).
At Neuragenex, we tailor our IV therapy treatments to each patient, based on their specific needs. Our customized treatment plans typically include a combination of vitamins and minerals designed to reduce inflammation, improve mobility, promote overall health, and address any deficiencies we identify via bloodwork.
Lifestyle Counseling For Sciatica
At Neuragenex, we don’t just treat sciatica symptoms; we also focus on how to help our patients make lifestyle changes that will help them improve their chances of staying pain-free in the long term. That’s why our whole-person approach to sciatica treatment includes lifestyle counseling to address any potential underlying causes of sciatica, such as poor posture or inactivity.
Our counseling services are provided by experienced healthcare professionals who will work with you to develop an individualized plan for reducing or eliminating your sciatica pain. This plan may include lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise, stretching and strengthening exercises, and relaxation techniques.
