If you’re living with chronic pain, you know how much it can interfere with your quality of life. You may have tried different treatments, but nothing has provided the relief you desperately need. Matrix electroanalgesia may be the answer — this non-invasive, drug-free treatment has shown remarkable promise in helping chronic pain sufferers.
Stopping Your Pain with the Latest Technology
You are not alone; chronic pain resulting from injuries, work-related tasks, or even commonly prescribed pharmaceuticals affects millions of people. Peripheral neuropathy caused by traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes, and exposure to toxins can lead to chronic discomfort. Additionally, severe orthopedic aches and pains in the shoulder, knee, hip, and back pain are practically epidemic in numbers. Instead of using drugs or performing surgery to treat any of these conditions, Dr. Rozenberg can use our state-of-the-art Matrix Electroanalgesia system from NeuroMed to help you find lasting relief. By delivering precisely controlled electrical energy to your nerves, we can block pain signals from being sent to your brain while encouraging your body’s natural healing processes, essentially making you heal naturally from within.
Are you looking for a solution for your neuropathic pain? Are you hoping to avoid surgery on your back, knee, hip, or any other orthopedic region of the body? Call Spinatomy to set up an appointment and see if the Matrix Electroanalgesia system is the answer for you.
What is Electroanalgesia?
Electroanalgesia involves the electrical stimulation of your peripheral nerves at varying frequencies and intensities. This depolarizes the cells in the nerves that are responsible for transmitting pain signals to the brain, which significantly reduces or even eliminates your discomfort. Electrical stimulation also increases blood flow to the nerves and the nearby tissues, thus promoting healing in the area. By dramatically reducing pain, patients who undergo electroanalgesia treatment see a dramatic improvement in the quality of their lives. The procedure is highly recommended for those who want to stop being dependent on various medications to manage their discomfort related to peripheral neuropathy or pain associated with the spine, arms, legs, knees – any orthopedic region of the body.
How Does the Treatment Work?
At the beginning of the treatment, electrodes shaped like suction cups will be carefully placed over four areas of your body. The exact placement of the electrodes depends on the pain symptoms you’re experiencing. Treatment time is usually between 15 to 25 minutes, during which the nerves will be treated with electrical pulses. Once the treatment is complete, you should notice a significant reduction in pain right away, which may improve over the next several minutes. You may experience a tingling sensation and less muscle tension in the treated area. Side effects are minimal; some patients may experience fatigue or a mild headache, but these feelings should fade over time and can be managed relatively easily. While pain reduction is usually notable after a single treatment, Matrix Electroanalgesia typically needs to be performed multiple times for the best results. The exact number of treatments is different for each patient, depending on the nature and severity of their pain. Normally, you can expect to receive between 5 to 15 treatments.
How is Matrix Electroanalgesia Different?
You may have heard of TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), which works similarly to Matrix Electroanalgesia; however, there are some key differences between the two treatments. The average TENS unit delivers 1 to 250 pulses of electrical energy per second. On the other hand, the NeuroMed Matrix Electroanalgesia system uses currents with much higher frequencies – about 8,300 to 10,000 pulses per second. It also uses large electrical pads that significantly lower skin resistance. The Matrix Electroanalgesia system allows the electrical energy to travel deeper into the patient’s tissues to block pain signals more effectively.
We’ve chosen the Matrix Electroanalgesia system to bring our patients the best possible forms of chiropractic care that provide long-term pain relief.
Recovery After Matrix Electroanalgesia
Matrix electroanalgesia is a pain relief technique that uses electrical stimulation to block pain signals from reaching the brain. It is a safe and effective way to treat pain without major side effects or recovery time. Some people experience mild side effects after MEA, such as soreness, bruising, or swelling at the site of the electrodes. These side effects are usually minor and go away quickly. There is usually no downtime after MEA, so you can return to your normal activities immediately. You may be instructed to avoid strenuous activity or exercise for a few days, but other than that, you should be able to go about your life as usual. Overall, recovery from MEA is quick and easy, with most people returning to their normal selves within a few days.
