When suffering from Peripheral neuropathy, life can be debilitating, and using pain medications is the most common treatment. It takes trial and error to find out which one is the one that suits you better when it comes to side effects, which is exhausting, and besides your tolerance to pain medications, either prescriptions or over the counter drugs, go up over time.
One of the most popular prescriptions used to treat nerve pain is Gabapentin, which was not even created to treat this condition in the beginning. In America, around 20 million people suffer from Peripheral Neuropathy.
Peripheral neuropathy starts with nerve damage to the peripheral system, in other words, nerves running from the brain and the spinal cord to the rest of the body. Some symptoms may include:
- Prickling/Tingling Sensation
- Sharp Throbbing
- Freezing/Burning Pain
- Extreme Sensitivity
- Lack of Coordination
At Holistic Pain Care, the Neuropathy treatment We Provide is just One System with Multiple Benefits called Sanexas used to treat various acute and chronic pain issues, including pain from surgery, accidents, diseases, and pain syndromes like fibromyalgia. As well as optimizing signaling between nerves.
Neuropathy happens when nerve cells become damaged or destroyed, which interferes with how those nerve cells (neurons)communicate with your brain. It’s a progressive condition. Which means it gets worse over time.
Neuropathy can affect one nerve type, this is called mononeuropathy, and can also affect a combination of nerves in a specific area. This is called multifocal neuropathy or many peripheral nerves throughout the body and, in this case, is called polyneuropathy.
Some neuropathies develop quickly and just continue to worsen with time, but in some cases, it can develop slowly for months or even years but equally end up being chronic. There are more than a hundred types of neuropathies, and each one can develop differently; everything depends on the nerve damage.
The cause of neuropathy is not specific; several factors can be related to this condition. We could say that Diabetes is neuropathy’s primary cause in the U.S.A. Around 70% experience neuropathy.
Another cause of neuropathy is trauma due to accidents, such as car accidents or sports injuries. These are all situations that can have secondary effects. Also, infections or autoimmune disorders can create neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Lyme disease, shingles, or even HIV, just to name a few.
Other causes may include medications, health conditions, vascular disorders, alcoholism, or inherited disorders, but the worst part is not explaining the nerve damage.
Gabapentin as treatment
Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant and nerve pain medication. It has become so widely used that 90% of the prescriptions written are for off-label users. Meaning the drug was created to treat something specifically but is being used for another condition.
Neuropathic pain is relieved by Gabapentin, but the dosage for treating nerve pain with it is somewhat ambiguous. If at all existent.
Being so readily available, Gabapentin is at high risk of being abused. It is not an opioid, but it may quickly become a risk of misuse with such high doses being prescribed. It does not carry the same lethal risk of overdose as opioids, but the effects of taking Gabapentin for extended periods have unknown outcomes.
Sanexas is a treatment that uses a technique called electric cell signaling, based on the physics of resonance. Resonance is the electrical signaling between cells. Resonance is similar to when a piano is tuned. The tuner strikes the piano string to adjust the energy that vibrates along it to create sound. Changing the series develops the ideal pitch or tone for the piano.
Electric cell signaling is similar, and the goal is to optimize the energy levels (the resonance) between your cells. When these signals are optimized and correctly ‘tuned,’ intercellular communication is normalized. Your cells can successfully transfer energy that’s used to heal injured tissues and relieve pain.
One System, Multiple Benefits. No More Pain.
Sanexas is used to treat various acute and chronic pain issues, including pain from surgery, accidents, diseases, and pain syndromes like fibromyalgia. As well as optimizing signaling between cells, the electrical currents relax muscle spasms and increase local circulation. This supports local and regional healing mechanisms for effective and successful tissue repair. When used after surgery, Sanexas can reduce the risk of clot development in your legs.
With long-term use, the system can also help prevent atrophy in muscles. Sanexas can help relieve pain, improve mobility and range of motion. Most patients can enjoy a better quality of life. Best of all, Sanexas is non-invasive. There is no need for anesthesia and no recovery time. Sanexas can reduce or eliminate long-term use of addictive or harmful pain medication.
It can be truly life-changing!
Acute vs. Chronic Care
Acute care includes drugs, surgeries and injections used, and that is most commonly what insurance covers. The problem is that neuropathy doesn’t need a critical care approach because it’s not an acute care condition. Acute care is active but short term treatment for an ongoing problem.
Neuropathy is a complicated condition that requires more than just a quick fix. This is why we encourage you to seek professional health and get a personal plan designed specifically for you and see results and not only cover up your symptoms. Understand that medications are only a temporary fix and leave your nerves susceptible to further damage.
Gabapentin is a drug used to treat pain but no Neuropathy.
Neuropathy is a chronic condition that needs a specific treatment to find healing with a personalized plan to treat the particular neuropathy. With Sanexas, we will help you get pain relief and bring those nerves back to better health. For the long-term, non-surgical, drug-free results, contact Holistic Pain Care today!
