Nerve Pain Treatment: Neurogenx

St. Augustine Foot and Ankle

What is the Neurogenx nerve pain treatment?

It is a breakthrough electromedical nerve pain treatment proven to effectively alleviate the pain, tingling, burning, and numbness resulting from neuropathy and chronic nerve conditions. This nerve pain treatment can successfully help resolve neuropathy symptoms and nerve pain of varying intensities in different areas of the body. Neurogenx patients have improved sensation, range of motion, balance, and restful sleep as well as eliminated pain and numbness.

The nerve pain treatment is performed with a technologically advanced  medical device called the Neurogenx 4000PRO: It is FDA-Cleared and patented as the only device of its kind. The Neurogenx treatment is unlike any other currently available. It is non-narcotic, non-surgical, and non-invasive. It uses a sophisticated electronic signal with a wide frequency band to successfully treat neuropathy symptoms at the cellular level. This helps restore function and feeling.

Results will vary but some patients feel a difference within the first couple of treatments. Studies have shown that this nerve pain treatment is up to 87% effective. In more than four out of five patients the Neurogenx treatment has helped with pain, numbness, burning, tingling and other symptoms associated with neuropathy.

Neuropathy

St. Augustine Foot and Ankle

Neuropathy is an umbrella term that denotes a disorder of the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system consists of all the motor and sensory nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.

How Is Neuropathy Diagnosed?

If your doctor suspects you may have a form of neuropathy, he or she will begin by taking a history of your symptoms and examining you for signs of muscle weakness, numbness, and impaired reflexes. You may need blood and urine tests to check for diabetes, vitamin or metabolic deficiencies and the presence of any underlying disease or genetic defect that may be affecting you. You’ll also need to take a serious look at your alcohol intake and what medications you are taking.

You may also be given an electromyogram (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) tests, which is used to assess nerve and muscle function and measure the electrical properties of the nerves. Using these tests, doctors can often pinpoint the abnormal nerves and determine which part of their structure is damaged.

General Information About Pituitary Tumors

A pituitary tumor is a growth of abnormal cells in the tissues of the pituitary gland. Pituitary tumors form in the pituitary gland, a pea-sized organ in the center of the brain, just above the back of the nose. The pituitary gland is sometimes called the “master endocrine gland” because it makes hormones that affect the way many parts of the body work. It also controls hormones made by many other glands in the body. Anatomy of the inside of the brain, showing the pineal and pituitary glands, optic…

Nerve and muscle biopsies may also be performed and may provide valuable information about the type and cause of the neuropathy. A spinal tap, or lumbar puncture, is sometimes recommended to help identify infection or inflammation that might be associated with the neuropathy.

What Are the Treatments for Neuropathy?

Effective treatment of peripheral neuropathy relies heavily on the cause of the nerve damage. For example, a peripheral neuropathy caused by a vitamin deficiency can be treated — even reversed — with vitamin therapy and an improved diet. Likewise, nerve damage brought on by alcohol abuse can often be stopped and improved by avoiding alcohol. Peripheral neuropathy caused by toxic substances or medications can often be corrected in much the same way. When neuropathy is related to diabetes, careful monitoring of blood sugar levels may slow its progression and curb symptoms. Physical therapy will help strengthen weak muscles and improve quality of life in almost all cases. Early diagnosis and treatment of peripheral neuropathy is important, because the peripheral nerves have a limited capacity to regenerate, and treatment may only stop the progression — not reverse damage.

How Can Peripheral Neuropathy Be Prevented?

Some forms of peripheral neuropathy can be averted by maintaining sound health habits. Eating a nutritious diet, exercising regularly, and abstaining from excessive alcohol consumption can all help prevent nerve damage. Avoiding injuries and toxic chemicals and carefully managing underlying disorders, such as diabetes, can also help prevent peripheral neuropathy.
