Manage Your Chronic Pain With Electric Cell Signaling

Chronic pain is a constant struggle for over 25 million Americans. Chronic pain sufferers report a lower quality of life, they have an increased risk of depression, and they have a higher unemployment rate. 

Traditional pain management typically includes medications and surgery. While there’s a time and place for these types of treatment, researchers have come up with new noninvasive and non-addictive ways to manage chronic pain.

Electric cell signaling (EST) is a great option for sufferers of acute and chronic pain, especially those who have pain caused by nerve damage and inflammation. There’s also some evidence that EST may be an effective alternative to managing phantom chronic limb pain

At the Neuropathy Treatment Clinics of Texas, we do our best to keep our patients up to date on the latest discoveries in chronic pain management. To help you out, we put together a short guide on the benefits of neoGEN-Series® electric cell signaling system, an FDA-approved treatment we use in our practice. 

Blocks pain signals

When nerve damage causes pain, it means the communication pathway between the nerves and the brain doesn’t work properly. 

Nerves are supposed to give the brain warning signs. For example, when you step on a nail, your brain receives the signal and pain occurs, so you know something bad happened to your foot. With damaged nerves, however, the brain receives warning signals even in the absence of a real threat.

The electric cell signaling system can imitate the electric signals sent out by nerves and block them completely, eliminating pain.

Lowers your inflammation levels 

Inflammation and nerve damage are often at the root of chronic and acute pain. 

Unfortunately, anti-inflammatory drugs can have a negative impact on diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, liver disease, stomach ulcers, and heart disease, so many people can’t take them.

One study found that electrical stimulation may be a great alternative to lowering inflammation for chronic pain sufferers who can’t use anti-inflammatories. 

May help prevent muscle loss 

Your muscles quickly waste away if you don’t use them. Electrical stimulation can prevent this from happening by contracting your muscles, providing a form of exercise. 

Not only will your muscles be stimulated during the procedure, but as your pain starts to dissipate, you’ll be able to move on your own more and prevent muscle loss. 

A short, painless procedure with no downtime

With EST, you can expect to spend 30-40 minutes in the doctor’s office, and you don’t have to worry about taking any time off. 

Your medical provider uses local anesthesia to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure. They determine how many sessions you need to manage your pain, depending on the type of nerve damage you have and your overall health.
