Electroanalgesia: The Non-Surgical Pain Relief Solution You Need to Know About
Chronic pain can be a debilitating condition that can make it hard to enjoy life to the fullest. Fortunately, modern chiropractic treatments offer several noninvasive solutions to help manage pain without surgery. One such treatment that has gained popularity in recent years is the Matrix electroanalgesia system.
Electroanalgesia is a chiropractic treatment that uses electrical pulses to alleviate pain by stimulating the peripheral nerves. By doing so, the nerves’ ability to send pain signals to the brain is disrupted, which leads to reduced discomfort. Additionally, electroanalgesia promotes blood flow to the affected area, which aids in the healing process.
Electroanalgesia can help with various types of chronic pain, including peripheral neuropathy, which results from damage to peripheral nerves due to injury, infection, metabolic issues, or other causes. It is also effective for orthopedic pains that can occur in the back, shoulder, knees, and hip, and is often suggested as an alternative to surgery.
During an electroanalgesia treatment, small electrodes will be attached to the specific areas of your body where you are experiencing pain. The electrodes are then used to deliver electrical impulses to the affected nerves. A single session usually takes between 15 to 25 minutes, and most patients experience immediate relief after the treatment.
Typically, multiple sessions are required to manage chronic pain effectively. The number of sessions needed depends on the kind of pain being treated and its severity. Most patients receive between 5 to 15 treatments, with each session spaced out by several days.
Electroanalgesia is a safe and noninvasive alternative to traditional pain management techniques. It does not require anesthesia or surgery and does not have any major side effects. However, it is not suitable for everyone, and your chiropractor will assess your medical history to determine if it is appropriate for you.
