For the best pain control, you must first have 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 clinicians make an accurate assessment as to the type of pain you may have and what the likely causes actually are for best pain control.
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.

Unfortunately, no one medication or therapy is usually the answer once chronic pain has set in.This is why we are working together for better pain management!
It is vital with any new condition or injury to reduce pain quickly, and much it as much as possible with non-drug methods.
Deaths due to narcotic abuse are at an all time high. Unfortunately, this trend will not be reversed unless different steps are taken to manage the vast numbers of chronic pain and neuropathy patients in the world who suffer.
We’ve spoken extensively in the past about the two most common forms of pain. Most of us are very familiar with acute pain that is the pain of a cut, bruise, or even childbirth.
Fortunately, acute pain is relatively short-lived, and not imprinted firmly upon our nervous systems.
Chronic pain however has a way of becoming deeply embedded and tripped very easily, setting up deep circuits within the brain and nervous system, which can be difficult to change.
Unfortunately, no one medication or therapy is usually the answer once chronic pain has set in. With narcotics, each successive dose can be less effective than the previous, setting up the pathway for overdose and abuse.
The best alternative is to first jump on any new injury or illness with pain as soon as possible. It is vital with any new condition or injury to reduce pain quickly, and as much as possible with non-drug methods. This is why seeking therapy soon after injury or onset of a condition like shingles or neuropathy–or even headaches and back pain–can produce much better long-term treatment results!
This is also the time to use powerful non-drug treatment methods, including physical therapy modalities such as massage and manual therapy, and various forms of electric neurostimulation–and even laser therapy.
The most important take away from this discussion is to use every non-drug tool available as soon after the onset of injury or illness as possible.
This helps explain why our the NDGen Neurostimulator Kit can be so very powerful in helping avoid drug dependence.
In summary, anything you can learn to do to better manage your neuropathy and chronic pain with non-drug methods, especially early on will lead to a far better long term outcome!
