In order to stay on the cutting-edge of technology that can benefit our patients, Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists is proud to offer Neurogenx treatment to decrease the pain that often accompanies neuropathy. We can still attempt to care for nerve damage with other methods, but this has proven to be an effective tool for helping our patients find the pain relief they need.
What is Neurogenx?
It is an innovative method for reducing the pain commonly experienced by those who have nerve damage. It combines small amounts of medication to numb the nerves, while also stimulating the impaired nerve with electronic pulses. Essentially, this process is able to improve circulation, create an anti-inflammatory effect, and simultaneously decrease nerve swelling and pain signals.
What Conditions Does Neurogenx Treat?
In addition to neuropathy treatment, both diabetic and that from chemotherapy, this treatment can also help with restless leg syndrome, fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome, radiculopathy, neuritis, and more.
Patients who have undergone treatment with this procedure report improved balance, decrease in the use of narcotic pain medication, and better sleep. Instead of waking up with pain during the middle of the night, you could have the ability to sleep continuously for longer periods of time. Many patients are less afraid that they might fall while walking, and others have completely given up narcotic pain meds.
How Does Neurogenx Work?
As previously mentioned, the system relies on both medication and electrical stimulation to improve affected nerves. Additionally, the use of balance plates enables us to record minute shifts in body weight, ones that you would not likely be able to identify on your own, with objective, accurate measurements. This provides meaningful results that enable us to adjust your therapy as needed to ensure that it works for you.
These measurements can also let us know if your balance issue is vestibular, visual, or proprioceptive. As we track your progress during the course of rehabilitation, this tool can provide insight that will allow us to customize your treatment plan.
This treatment is a huge advancement in the field of neuropathy care, so understanding this condition will help you see its benefits. Neuropathy is essentially nerve damage that can lead to burning, cramping, muscle weakness, numbness, and impaired reflexes. There are many root causes of this condition, including diabetes, chemotherapy, alcohol abuse, genetic defects, vitamin deficiency, or underlying diseases.
To properly diagnosis this condition, we may need to order lab tests or image testing like x-rays and MRIs. In some cases, muscle biopsy or nerve studies can give us a better idea of how your nerve conducts signals.
