For the best pain control, first your clinician must make an accurate assessment of the type of pain and likely causes.
Anybody who suffers from neuropathy and it’s related forms of chronic pain such as shingles, pinched nerves in the spine, or even spinal stenosis understands what a challenge finding the best pain control can be.
But what too many physicians and patients very often fail to understand is that early and active intervention to make a dramatic difference in patient outcome.
Let’s take for example back pain. It is been known for years that under-treated acute back pain can lead to prolonged episodes of pain and disability.
Neuropathy is often times the same because of early on the symptoms are minimized or blown off by both patients and doctors alike.
One thing that even too many physicians fail to understand is that different body parts generate different pain signals and this requires often times multiple and even separate forms of treatment.
For example the pain that is produced when a nerve is damaged is distinctly different from the pain from Norcott scraper, even a surgical scar.
Because these are two different problems, they often times need to be treated differently.
One of the key things to understand about neuropathic pain is that it does often respond well to various forms of electric nerve stimulation. This is why so many find relief with our NDGen at home and in the clinic.
By contrast, pain due to bruises, scars, and cuts etc. Do not always respond to direct neurostim (nerve stimulation) and other treatment modalities, such as ultrasound and laser maybe much more effective.
So this is why it’s very important that your clinician make an accurate assessment as to the type of pain you may have and what the likely causes actually are for best pain control.
As we said before the longer a pain pattern sets in the more difficult it becomes to treat.
This is why we strongly recommend active and early intervention especially in painful disorders like neuropathy, shingles and even acute back pain.
The longer you wait or put off the appropriate treatment the more difficult it will become to manage and find the best pain control.
In reality, far more difficult than it needs to be.
