How do you treat chronic pain at your medical clinic?
Some doctors treat chronic pain by prescribing powerful drugs, which often care concerns of addiction. Instead, we use Electroanalgesia (EA) by NeuroMed. This method is one of the most effective drug-free and nonsurgical ways to treat chronic pain. This treatment delivers specific doses of electrical energy that stimulates a patient’s peripheral nerves. These nerves are how pain signals get transmitted to your brain through your spinal cord. It blocks these signals, stopping chronic pain.
EA is very similar to TENS Therapy, short for Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation. A TENS device reduces chronic pain by using low voltage of electricity through small electrodes placed on the skin.
What is the difference between EA and TENS?
A TENS device will deliver 1 to 250 pulses per second with a dosage of about 25 Ma. EA will provide 8,300 to 10,000 pulses per second with a dosage as high as 100 Ma. The electrical energy is delivered deep into a patient’s tissue to block pain signals due to the skin’s natural lower resistance to electricity.
TENS therapy stimulates nerves, but the higher dosage and frequency from EA Therapy reduces the ability of the targeted nerves to transmit pain. This therapy will also promote healing in an area. This therapy is like blocking a nerve’s ability to communicate similar to an epidural or some other injection. However, instead of using an injection, this system uses electricity. Our skilled providers will use the correct dosage and electrode placement to decrease the intensity of your pain effectively. EA has been providing patients with improved quality of life for years!
Is Electroanalgesia widely used?
Over 2,500 doctors in the United States use EA to treat chronic pain effectively. Some of the notable locations that use this treatment include:
- Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda, CA
- Columbia University, New York, NY
- Charles R. Drew Univ. of Medicine &Science, LA, CA
- The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH
