Severe or chronic nerve pain can result from many different conditions including the following:
- PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY – Disorder of the nervous system in which the nerves that connect the spinal cord to other parts of the body are damaged resulting in numbness, tingling, burning or stabbing pain.
- DIABETIC NEUROPATHY – About 60-70% of diabetics are prone to developed neuropathy conditions.
- FIBROMYALGIA – Chronic neurogenic syndrome associated with widespread pain in the muscles and bones, areas of tenderness, and general fatigue.
- COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME – CRPS is a painful condition that causes severe swelling and changs in skin color, temperature and texture that varies in severity.
- REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY – RSD is a combination of symptoms including pain, tenderness and swelling in the limbs. It is often accompanied by painful skin conditions.
- POSTHERPETIC NEURALGIA – PHN is a condition where pain arises following the healing of an outbreak of rashes or blisters from the complications of the shingles virus.
- CHEMOTHERAPY INDUCED NEUROPATHY – CIPN is caused from the drugs and chemotherapy to treat cancer which damages the peripheral nerves in the process.
- POSTSURGICAL NEUROPATHY PAIN – PNP is nerve pain after surgery that results in numbness, weakness or sharp unsettling pain at the surgery site.
- BRACHIAL PLEXUS NEUROPATHY – BPN is a condition that produces pain, decreases movement and decreases sensation in the shoulder and arms.
- PHANTOM LIMB SYNDROME – PLS is a condition where a person experiences painful and non-painful sensations in the area of an amputation.
FUNCTIONAL HEALTH APPROACH
Prairie Star’s approach to chronic and severe pain involves a full range of advanced treatments that are state-of-the-art but, importantly, are all focused on permanent and long-lasting solutions. Most of our patients have tried several different therapies only to be left disappointed with the results.
For severe pain, we are having amazing success with the revolutionary Electroanalgesia Therapy.
We want to ensure that, if you are a candidate for our severe nerve pain program, you have the highest probability for treatment success. As such, we follow a strict 2-step patient qualification process. In Step 1, we will conduct a thorough history followed by a comprehensive peripheral neuro exam to determine if you have a condition we can treat. We want to ensure that your body will respond to the pain treatment through the breakthrough technology.
At this point, you’ll graduate to Step 2 in the patient qualification process where we’ll perform a qualification treatment that normally will show some improvement right away. Then, after a full, our patients normally experience a dramatic improvement in pain reduction and a return to living their daily lives pain-free
Prairie Star Functional Health Center is one of the few practices in the United States that is qualified to perform the Calmare Pain therapy program. Through our doctors and trained staff, we are achieving a success rate of an amazing 95% for qualified Calmare patients!
HOW ELECTROANALGESIA THERAPY WORKS
Similar in concept to the TENS unit in delivering stimulation, Electroanalgesic treatments also use high electrical energy, 8,300 to 10,000 pulses per second (frequencies) and also high dosage of energy (as high as 100 Ma) to block pain. Due to lowered skin resistance, this electrical energy is delivered deeper into the patient’s tissue to block pain signals.
Rather than stimulate the nerves like a TENS unit, higher frequency energy and higher dosage of energy can reduce the ability of the affected nerves to transmit pain signals and, at the same time, promote healing. It’s like a nerve block with electrical energy instead of an injection (such as an epidural). With the correct dosage and electrodes, Electroanalgesia (EA) can safely and effectively decrease pain intensity, providing patients with an improved quality of life.
