Electroanalgesia Therapy in Shawnee

While pain medications can temporarily relieve discomfort, they may also produce undesirable side effects or even result in dependence on the drugs.

That’s why we offer alternative therapies for opioid-free, sub-acute, and/or chronic pain patients.

One of the most effective non-surgical, drug-free treatments we offer is Electroanalgesia (EA) by NeuroMed. This revolutionary pain management system delivers precise dosages of electrical energy that stimulate peripheral nerves (the nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to limbs and organs) to block your discomfort.

How Electroanalgesia Therapy Works

If you have ever had physical therapy, you may be familiar with TENS (Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation), an external device that reduces discomfort by applying a low voltage of electricity and low dosage through small electrodes placed over the skin. For example, TENS units deliver 1 to 250 pulses per second and about 25 Ma dosage.

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 the 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 discomfort intensity, providing patients with an improved quality of life.

Hospitals, universities, and medical centers have been utilizing Electroanalgesia (EA) technology to treat patients:

  • Columbia University, New York, NY
  • The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH
  • Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda, CA
  • Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science

Well over 2,500 physicians nationally are now successfully using electroanalgesic medicine as an effective treatment.
