Our Neuragenex protocol is a holistic solution designed to help reduce or eliminate the discomfort caused by urinary incontinence. We avoid prescribing medications, as these usually only provide short-term relief and don’t address the underlying cause of the problem (and can also lead to harmful side effects).
We also avoid invasive surgical treatments, as these procedures can be expensive and lead to complications such as infections. Finally, our protocol avoids chiropractic treatment methods, as they are unproven and carry potential risks.
Instead of relying on drugs or surgery, our Neuragenex protocol focuses on neurofunctional pain management. This means we get to the root causes of the urinary incontinence to address the symptoms and help prevent them from reccurring.
We do this using several proven treatment methods, including electroanalgesia and IV therapy. Additionally, we offer lifestyle counseling so our patients can make lasting changes to their daily habits and routines.
The following is a brief overview of our neurofunctional pain management approach for treating urinary incontinence.
Electroanalgesia For Muscle Spasms Associated With Urinary Incontinence
Electroanalgesia is a safe, FDA-approved method for treating muscle spasms associated with urinary incontinence. It involves applying electrical stimulation to help relax the muscles in the pelvic floor, allowing for better urinary control and reducing the frequency of bladder spasms.
It also helps reduce the intensity of cramping associated with urinary incontinence by blocking the brain’s pain signals and helping to release endorphins.
It’s important to remember that electroanalgesia differs from TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) therapy. TENS involves the use of low-pulse currents to provide temporary relief. Electroanalgesia is much more advanced, using high-pulse currents to offer long-term relief.
Electroanalgesia has been used for decades but it still isn’t common amongst medical practitioners who prefer to prescribe easy short-term fixes, such as medication and surgery.
Despite being both safe and effective, electroanalgesia is used less often because it takes longer to achieve results. To be effective, we recommend two sessions per week for 12 weeks. The more often the patient has electroanalgesia therapy, the longer the relieving effect will be.
IV Therapy For Muscle Spasms Associated With Urinary Incontinence
While intravenous (IV) therapy won’t solve urinary incontinence on its own, it can help relieve some of the symptoms. IV therapy consists of infusing essential vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. Doing so can help rehydrate the body, thereby reducing inflammation and easing symptoms such as spasms.
The contents of the IV therapy will depend on the patient’s condition and personal needs. For example, IV therapy can involve a blend of vitamins and minerals, such as zinc, magnesium, potassium, and B-complex vitamins. These nutrients can reduce inflammation and help the body repair itself.
However, each patient’s needs are different, so we do bloodwork beforehand to determine the mix of vitamins and minerals that best address the specific symptoms each patient has.
Lifestyle Counseling For Muscle Spasms Associated With Urinary Incontinence
At our Neuragenex clinic, we take a holistic approach to treating the muscle spasms associated with urinary incontinence. We understand that any treatment must address the underlying causes and issues for lasting results. That is why we offer lifestyle counseling in addition to electroanalgesia and IV therapy treatments.
As part of our lifestyle counseling, we discuss the patient’s diet and physical activity levels to see if any changes can be made to help manage or reduce the spasming. We can also provide suggestions for improving bladder health. Our lifestyle counseling plan will be tailored to each individual patient based on their specific symptoms and lifestyle.
