Patients are seeing Life-changing Results in Treating Chronic Pain & Neuropathy with Stivax Neurostimulation, even when other pain management treatments have failed
Anderson Center for Nerve Pain, in conjunction with Nightingale Medical Centers, offers a non-narcotic neurostimulation treatment for many types of chronic pain, neuropathy, and peripheral artery disease (PAD). Patients typically report a significant reduction in pain with increased mobility within the first weeks of the of eight-week treatment period. The effect is sustained long-term virtually 100% of the time.
Neurostimulation is an established form of pain therapy that treats nerves with electrical stimulation rather than drugs. While chronic pain is becoming better recognized by the medical community at large, the danger of opioids for addiction, diversion or misuse in patients is well documented. Opioid use is usually a poor choice for long-term, chronic conditions because it requires escalating doses to bring relief, and it carries with it a host of undesirable side effects. Clinical studies show neurostimulation to be safe and effective and it is approved by the FDA.
It is an outpatient therapy, where patients temporarily wear a small, disposable neurostimulator device fitted just under the collar. The device emits a low, imperceptible electrical current, via a single lead connection onto the ear lobe, from where the impulses are conducted to the brain stem via the vagus nerve.
The vagus nerve affects the pain pathways in the spinal cord, and reduces pain signals regardless of their cause. Hypersensitive or damaged nerves that send unwarranted pain signals can be muted (or, in a sense, blocked) by the neurostimulator’s impulses.
Further benefits of vagus nerve stimulation can include increased production of endorphins and increased blood flow in the extremities, thus enabling one’s own body to more effectively heal itself.
This neurostimulation treatment has been used in Europe for over seven years, and, has recently been cleared by the FDA for use in the United States. Covered by Medicare and most PPO insurance plans, only licensed medical providers may apply this device.
