Medical technology sure has come a long way, hasn’t it? Some widely accepted medical treatments in the past can make you shudder.
But fortunately, we live in the most innovative country in the world. And one of the latest developments is neurostimulation.
It’s so effective that many patients see their pain greatly reduced in just a few days.
Put simply, it’s a method of disrupting the pain signals that travel between your brain and spinal cord. It also encourages your body to release endorphins, which are your body’s natural pain inhibitors.
It’s been found effective for reducing these types of pain:
And best of all, neurostimulation can eliminate the need for surgery and potentially addictive medication.
It can even help you avoid any type of long-term therapy for your pain.
It’s easy to understand. You wear a small device about a couple inches long usually just behind your ear.
The neurostimulator then delivers electrical impulses via electrodes. Electrical leads and the device itself are placed in the ideal location by your doctor. They’ll also run a quick test with you to make sure it’s in the right location.
Then you simply let the device deliver its electrical impulses. You’ll wear it anywhere from just a few days to up to 10 or so, depending on the type of pain you need to treat.
It doesn’t make any noise. And the only inconvenience is that you can’t get it wet, so you’ll have to protect it when you shower.
There’s no serious ones for most people. Neurostimulation shouldn’t be used if you are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or are a hemophiliac.
For everyone else, you can count on feeling electrical impulses, which may seem a bit odd at first. But they’re not painful.
And that’s it. It really is that painless and simple.
Does Insurance Cover Neurostimulation?
Yes. The FDA has cleared this device for use and sale in the US. Medicare, Tricare, and your insurance will cover it.
So, if you have chronic pain caused by any of the conditions above, talk to us about neurostimulation.
It could just be the painless and minimally invasive solution you’ve been looking for!
