We’ve been asked many times what makes our Neurogenx treatments for neuropathy so effective. Although we have other neuropathy treatment options, Neurogenx not only manages the symptoms of neuropathy, but it can even reverse the nerve damage and restore nerve function!
Here are some of the more frequently asked questions about Neurogenx:
What is neuropathy? Neuropathy is nerve damage, but there can be many sources of neuropathy symptoms. The most common cause of neuropathy is diabetes, where excess glucose in the bloodstream damages the nerves. Neuropathy can also result from infections, genetic defects, and chemotherapy.
How about peripheral neuropathy? Peripheral neuropathy is damage to the nerves outside of the brain and spinal column, such as the feet and hands.
How do I know if I have neuropathy? Your symptoms may include sharp, burning or throbbing pain; numbness; touch sensitivity; lack of coordination; lack of balance; muscle weakness; cramping.
Can Neurogenx help other conditions besides neuropathy? Neurogenx therapy is effective for fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, neuritis, and radiculopathy, among others.
How does Neurogenx work? Neurogenx therapy combines electronic pulses with some medication to stimulate a damaged nerve. Pain is relieved because pain signals are decreased. Neurogenx reduces nerve swelling, improves circulation, and creates an anti-inflammatory effect.
Besides pain relief, what are the other benefits of Neurogenx? Many patients report better sleep patterns because the pain is eliminated. The fear of falling may be eased as better balance returns, and it may be possible to reduce or even give up narcotic medications.
Can Neurogenx help me? Please call us for an evaluation! We will thoroughly examine your feet and legs and assess your degree of neuropathy. Imaging like X-rays and other tests such as nerve testing and muscle biopsies can help us confirm our diagnosis and suggest next steps.
