Neurogenx is a sophisticated technology that utilizes electronic signals to reduce nerve pain and swelling. Known as Combination Electroanalgesia Therapy (CET), this mode of treatment has been monumental in the treatment of pain and discomfort associated with a variety of conditions, some of which include:
- Diabetic and peripheral neuropathy
- Restless leg syndrome (RLS)
- Complex regional pain syndrome
- Plantar Fasciitis
- And more
A local anesthetic is administered prior to treatment to ensure patient comfort during the therapy. Pads are then applied to the treatment area, through which electrical signals are transmitted into the muscles and nerves below. The application of electronic stimulation helps to improve circulation, reduce inflammation and minimize nerve swelling. Together, these effects cause a noticeable lessening of nerve pain and also restore feeling for patients who have lost sensitivity in their feet.
With its high success rate and minimally invasive technique, Neurogenx treatments have helped many patients enjoy a better quality of life. In the past, little could be done to stop the pain and pins-and-needles sensation so many people live with on a chronic basis. Today, less pain is a reality for many who lived months or even years relying on medication for day-to-day pain management.
