neoGEN-Series® For Wound Care

Neuropathy can be a frustrating and debilitating condition. While nerve damage due to neuropathy can be very debilitating, several treatments are available to help manage the condition and improve quality of life. Neuropathy can have many causes and finding the right treatment option can be challenging when the condition develops after receiving a wound. The RST-SANEXAS neoGEN® device can assist in improving wound care by improving circulation and reducing inflammation to the area by facilitating the healing processes.

Neuropathy Causes 

While neuropathy is often associated with diabetes, it can also be caused by other conditions. Sometimes, nerve pain can be reversed when caused by a curable issue such as cancer, toxins in the blood, chemotherapy, or a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. Once the underlying cause is resolved, the nerve pain may go away.

However, neuropathy is most often a chronic condition that cannot be cured. Diabetes is the most common condition that causes neuropathy, but severe injuries account for the second-highest number of neuropathic patients. The severity depends on the type of injury and how much damage was done to the tissues around the nerves.

Injuries and wounds cause neuropathy because they make the tissues around the injury swell. When the tissues expand, they squeeze and compress the nerves, which could cause temporary or chronic neuropathy. The chances of developing chronic neuropathy grow the longer you go without treating the initial injury.

Neuropathy Treatment

Acute neuropathy can be resolved when the cause of the condition is fixed. In the case of a wound causing neuropathy to develop, the condition is often acute if the injury is treated properly. There are several treatment options available.

Medications

While prescription medications are most often used to treat chronic neuropathy, they can also treat acute cases. Antidepressants and anti-seizure medications are the most effective for treating nerve pain caused by a wound.

Therapies

Many people with neuropathy find more relief through various therapies than with medications. The following types of therapies and procedures can all be effective on neuropathy caused by a wound.

  • Surgery: Major wounds sometimes need to be surgically repaired to eliminate nerve damage.
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation: TENS therapy involves placing small electrodes over the injured body part for approximately 30 minutes a day. These electrodes send small shocks into the affected nerves to stimulate them.
  • Physical therapy: Physical therapy is usually required to strengthen muscles that have been injured. A qualified therapist can also help reduce neuropathic nerve pain by reducing muscle compression on the nerves.
  • Plasma exchange: This therapy removes the blood from your body and removes antibodies that could trigger inflammation.

While many of these therapies can be beneficial for treating neuropathic pain that comes from wounds, RST-SANEXAS neoGEN-Series® is a well-established and exciting quantum-based energy approach used for treating pain associated with neuropathy and a wide variety of other painful conditions.

neoGEN-Series® for Treating Pain Associated with Neuropathy

The neoGEN-Series® machine is a device that sends pulses through the nerves in your body to retune them. It has the same effect as a piano tuner. This advanced technology goes far beyond traditional TENS therapy because the ultra-high digital frequency generator (UHdfg) delivers targeted and combined FM and AM therapeutic energy waves that penetrate deep into the tissue.  These complex electric cell-signaling processes along with associated harmonic resonance frequencies interrupt the nerves signals to the brain. This reduces the number of pain signals that the brain receives, which means patients don't feel as much pain.  

Although the machine can treat chronic pain associated with a wide variety of conditions, it is most often used to improve pain associated with the peripheral neuropathic condition. The primary benefit of using the device for neuropathic wound care is that it stimulates the nerves around the wound and helps them heal faster while improving circulation and reducing inflammation.

There are many benefits to choosing this type of treatment over others. The treatment is non-invasive and does not take long to complete, so you can easily fit it into any schedule. It is also painless, and you shouldn't feel any discomfort while undergoing the procedure. Gentle stimulation of the cell signaling allows people to feel less pain while wounds heal to resume their normal lifestyles as quickly as possible.

Regenerating new nerves, growing new nerve axons, and exciting damaged nerves will take time.  You may need repeat treatments from a neoGEN-Series® machine while you recover from your injury. Frequent treatments stimulate the cells, nerves, and muscles around the wound to reduce nerve pain and help you feel more comfortable. If your neuropathy is acute, the pain may go away once the wound heals, and you may stop treatment. If the nerve pain persists, however, you may continue treatment to reduce the side effects of neuropathy.   

The new neoGEN-Series® machine is a revolutionary tool for treating chronic nerve pain that is caused by neuropathy. If you have developed neuropathy after receiving an injury, it is important to take care of the nerves and muscles around the wound to minimize the risk of developing chronic neuropathy. RST-SANEXAS developed this machine to provide a safe, non-pharmaceutical, and effective treatment for people who suffer from pain associated with neuropathy, whether the condition is chronic or acute. Look for a local provider who uses the neoGEN-Series® machine to see if this treatment is right for you. With the right care and treatment, you can minimize neuropathy symptoms and improve your quality of life.  There is HOPE!
