If you have lived with chronic pain for any length of time (days, weeks or months), you know it can be debilitating and difficult to manage. You may start by trying over the counter medications, only to realize that they do not offer significant relief and that the pain comes back even more strongly when they wear off. Neurostimulation is a new technology that the team at Catalyst Chiropractic is offering to our clients to help manage chronic pain.
Neurostimulation can treat pain that you are feeling in your joints and muscles. We use what is called a neurostim device to help to identify where the problem originated in the body so we can effectively treat the root of the issue or injury. This device allows us to locate the problem area and actually reactivate the muscle to move force away from the injured area in order to promote healing. There are many types of injuries and conditions that are ideal for Neurostimulation therapy. These include whiplash after a car accident, sciatica, a bulging or herniated disc in your back, plantar fasciitis, muscle strains or sprains, TMJ, headaches, rotator cuff injuries, achilles and patellar tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and even ankle sprains. We can help determine if this non-invasive treatment option is right for you.
Non-Invasive Treatment Options For Managing Chronic Pain
One of the major benefits of Neurostimulation is that it is non-invasive. Unlike surgical treatments, this can be done in a chiropractic office, with little or no recovery time or risk from anesthesia. In addition, it does not require the use of prescription or over the counter medications, which just mask the pain, rather than treat the actual injury. Prescription medications also have the risk of addiction and overuse which can lead to many more problems for you down the road. Neurostimulation is a way to reduce pain at the source and treat it so that your body can begin to heal.
If you have battled chronic pain, you may be wondering if you can ever live pain free. Our answer is an absolute YES. Neurostimulation may be an ideal treatment for you. There are several clinical trials with data indicating that neurostimulation is a positive alternative to surgical intervention.
