Your nervous system is a simply remarkable anatomical component to who you are and what you’re able to do.
Consider the fact that this essential network of nervous tissue enables you to experience physical sensations (all the sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and physical touch that enrich your life). More than that, you use your nerves to control your muscles so you can move. And we can take this further—after all, your brain is part of the central nervous system.
You can attribute your ability to think and process information to this valuable body system.
Of course, when neuropathy (nerve damage) causes painful symptoms in your feet and legs, however, you might not be so fond of your nervous system!
Instead of becoming frustrated and harboring a grudge against your essential nerves, you may want to consider undergoing the Neurogenx treatment we offer here at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists.
So why does neuropathy happen?
Well, there are a variety of reasons. Whereas the condition is often associated with diabetes, it can also be caused by:
- Physical trauma (auto accidents, etc.)
- Infections and diseases
- Medication (and particularly as a side effect for the meds used in chemotherapy)
Okay, so how can you recognize nerve damage?
Since the vast majority of the nervous tissue in your body is located internally, you need to rely on physical sensations like burning, tingling, or sharp pain to be aware of an existing issue.
At the same time, severe neuropathy can cause nerves to completely shut down and not transmit any sensation signals back to the brain. In fact, numbness and lack of physical sensation are extremely concerning problems.
Sure, at first glance it might seem as though not being able to experience pain would be a good thing, but consider this:
Pain is important for being able to recognize issues.
If you were unable to feel pain from excessive heat, for example, you could accidentally put your hand on one of your stove’s burners and cause severe damage. When nerves function properly, however, you feel your hand getting warm extremely quick and are able to pull it away from the source of the heat.
So numbness opens the possibility of damage being sustained without you know about it.
Now, no matter if we’re talking about painful symptoms or an inability to feel anything in your foot or ankle, the simple fact of the matter is that you will want the problem resolved as soon as possible.
Fortunately, we have an array of traditional and advanced treatment options at our disposal, including various therapies, surgeries, and medications (pain relievers, anti-seizure drugs, topical treatments, and antidepressants).
We may utilize any of those options as part of your customized neuropathy treatment plan, but we may also capitalize on a sophisticated, technologically-advanced procedure we’re proud to offer that is known as Neurogenx.
Neurogenx is not a drug or surgery, but rather a unique Electronic Signal Treatment (EST) proven to provide dramatic results for our patients.
This particular type of EST is able to relieve neuropathy pain and other symptoms by employing high-frequency electronic waves. These waves gently reach deep down into affected nerves and soft tissue to create positive changes in the body.
Those changes happen as the process increases cellular metabolism, reduces swelling, alters pH levels, and removes waste products and excess fluids, all of which are instrumental in both promoting healing and relieving painful symptoms.
When combined with medication that numbs the nerves and blocks pain signals, these reactions from the EST are remarkably proficient in helping you find relief from nerve pain.
More than that, the reactions happening at the cellular level encourage damaged nerve cells to repair and regenerate.
To put it simply, your nerve pain and other symptoms will be nullified!
We’ve been offering this treatment for some time now and the results are continually quite impressive, as patients report improved balance, decreased need for narcotic pain medications, and even longer periods of sleep.
(Of course, it’s easier to stay asleep when you aren’t woken throughout the middle of the night with sharp nerve pain!)
Neurogenx treatment is yet another example of our commitment to offering the latest in state-of-the-art technology to help patients just like you overcome issues in a quick, effective, and completely safe manner.
We take pride here at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists in continually raising the bar for patient expectations, and then exceeding those expectations!
