Electroanalgesia For Ulcerative Colitis Pain
Electroanalgesia is an electrical stimulation treatment proven to relieve the pain associated with ulcerative colitis. This FDA-approved treatment delivers a high-pulse electric current to the affected area, which blocks pain signals from reaching the brain and helps release endorphins to alleviate pain.
Additionally, the use of electrical currents helps reduce inflammation by causing the blood vessels to constrict, thereby decreasing swelling and promoting pain relief, making electroanalgesia particularly beneficial to people with ulcerative colitis.
While it may sound revolutionary, electroanalgesia therapy has been around for decades. It also differs from TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) treatment, which uses a lower electrical pulse and is more useful for temporary pain relief rather than long-term chronic pain relief.
However, many medical practitioners opt for pain medications or surgical procedures instead because these are seen as quick-fix solutions, whereas electroanalgesia requires multiple rounds of treatment.
However, electroanalgesia is much safer and more effective. With electroanalgesia, the more sessions you have, the more successful the pain relief and the longer it will last. Here at Neuragenex, we design our treatment plans to include two rounds of electroanalgesia therapy per week for 12 weeks.
IV Therapy For Ulcerative Colitis Pain
IV therapy, or intravenous therapy, is the delivery of nutrients and fluids directly into the bloodstream. Though it is often used to administer medications, our Neuragenex team uses it to infuse our patients with a customized mixture of vitamins and minerals tailored to each patient’s unique symptoms and needs.
IV therapy can be a great way to boost the body’s natural defenses, particularly for those suffering from ulcerative colitis. These vitamins and minerals can help reduce inflammation by promoting the production of anti-inflammatory molecules and hormones.
Additionally, it helps boost the body’s natural healing process by providing essential nutrients for repairing and rebuilding tissues and cells.
At Neuragenex, our IV therapy sessions are tailored to the patient’s specific symptoms or deficiencies, based on a thorough evaluation of their bloodwork.
