This is an innovative method to reduce painful symptoms often experienced by patients who are dealing with neuropathy.
What Conditions Does Neurogenx Treat?
Neuropathy that comes from various root causes like chemotherapy, infections, and diabetes can be effectively treated with Neurogenx, but so too can fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, neuritis, radiculopathy, complex regional pain syndrome, and even more.
Patients who have undergone this procedure for treatment report decreased use of narcotic pain medication, improved balance, and even better sleep. Neurogenx treatment takes away the needless waking in the middle of the night from pain and allows patients to sleep continuously for extended periods of time. It can also eliminate the fear of falling while walking that many patients who have nerve damage commonly experience. Some treated patients are even able to not only reduce, but completely give up the use of narcotic pain medications.
This particular treatment was a major advancement in the field of neuropathy care, but it can be beneficial to understanding the nature of the condition being treated. Neuropathy is an issue that arises when damaged nerves cause cramping, impaired reflexes, muscle weakness, numbness, and burning, painful sensations. There are many possible conditions for nerve damage, including genetic defects, vitamin deficiency, alcohol abuse, chemotherapy, diabetes, and assorted underlying diseases.
When it comes to properly diagnosing the condition, we might need to use image testing (X-rays, MRIs) or order lab tests. For some patients, nerve studies or muscle biopsies are helpful in providing a clear picture as to how an affected nerve conducts signals.
