There are over 44 million American households that contain at least one member who suffers from chronic pain and 15 million households with two or more members who suffer from chronic pain with the majority having experienced pain for at least five years or more.
Physicians have found that this advanced physical medicine treatment known as Electroanalgesia is a valued option to drug therapy – which can be costly, addictive, can cause side effects like stomach irritation, and is sometimes ineffective. They have also found that Electroanalgesia is a valued option to surgery – which is invasive, has high cost, and is sometimes ineffective.
According to the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM), Occupational Medicine Practice Guidelines, Second Edition it states; “Prolonged use of narcotic medications may cause both physiologic and psychological addiction and may reduce the body’s supply of endorphins, causing depression and delayed recovery.” “Pain medications are typically not useful in the sub acute and chronic phases and have been shown to be the most important factor impeding recovery of function.”
For years, many physicians have been helping patients in the Early Return to Work Program by using this effective Electroanalgesic treatments by using an computer assisted High Definition frequency generator (HDfg) ™ to reduce the hyper-irritated state of the nerves.
Physicians can administer Electroanalgesic treatments during the first week of treatment with emphasis on pain reduction and some mild functional rehabilitation.
Upon re-evaluation, if it is documented that the patient’s pain level has been reduced to a negligible level and an increased flexibility and range of motion has been achieved, physicians have recommend the patient begin the second phase of treatment.
This phase has consist of referring the patient to a physical therapist for normalization of range of motion, neuromuscular reeducation, and overall muscle strengthening. Treatments are typically carried out two to three times per week with a re-evaluation of the patient’s condition performed after every five (5) office visits.
When a patient’s pain is under control, the above rehabilitation process will be faster and more effective allowing the patient to return to work much sooner.
NeuroMed has successfully assisted insurance companies and health care providers with the implementation of cost effective pain care for patients. Our purpose is to stimulate interest by Self-Insured companies, Third Party Administrators (T.P.A.), Workers’ Compensation, Private Insurance Companies, and the medical community in general in the cost effective use of Electroanalgesic treatments is to treat PAIN.
If your existing patients complain of acute or chronic pain, you should investigate the proven and effective treatment of an electroanalgesic pain management system. The high level of patient satisfaction typically equates to an excellent rate of patient compliance and additional patient referrals for your practice.
