Electronic Signal Treatment - Electroanalgesia
Electronic signal treatment is performed using a precise dosage of electrical stimulation to peripheral nerves in order to achieve a variety of therapeutic actions, including analgesia, increasing circulation, reduction of oedema and inflammation.
This treatment is delivered by using a high definition electro- medical wave generator. This electro generator is different from any other electrical stimulator having the ability to use both low frequency (< 2000Hz) and a medium frequency (2000-100000 Hz). This device uses specific programmed software algorithms to bio-electrically trigger differed desired physiological mechanisms. It is able to deliver pulses in the range from 8000-10000 pulses per second unlike TENS machines that can only deliver 1-250 pulses per second. This difference causes a long lasting pain signal interruption and longer cell depolarization, putting the cell into a rest, promoting healing. This treatment modality has showed in both basic science and clinical studies to not only diminish the sensation of neuropathic pain but also helps with the reversal/healing of the damage caused by the disease state itself.
This medical equipment has been approved for the purpose of:
• Providing nerve pain relief
• Management and symptomatic relief of chronic, intractable pain
• Adjunctive treatment of post traumatic pain
• Increasing local blood circulation
• Increasing range of motion
• Relaxation of muscle spasm
• Prevention of disuse muscle atrophy
• Immediate post surgical muscle stimulation
Electroanalgesia is achieved by placing specially designed conductivity socks or by utilizing several different electrodes.
This treatment is contraindicated in patients with:
• Cardiac demand pacemaker
• Disturbances in cardiac rhythm
• Acute danger of hemorrhage
• Postsurgical procedures when muscle contractions may disrupt healing process
• Acute inflammation caused by bacterial and viral infections.
Before starting any procedure, you should be properly assessed to determine whether or not electroanalgesia is the best course of treatment to deal with your specific problem.
