About Neuralgia or Nerve Pain
- Neuropathy is a common complication of a number of different medical conditions.
- It can involve the autonomic nerves, the motor nerves, and the sensory nerves.
- Sometimes it affects a single nerve or nerve set, for example, in Bell’s Palsy, which affects a facial nerve.
- Physical trauma, repetitive injury, infection, metabolic problems, and exposure to toxins and some drugs are all possible causes.
- People with diabetes have a high risk of neuropathy.
- Neuralgia can present with a variety of symptoms including:
- Burning sensation
- Dull pain
- Reduced range of motion
- Pain upon palpation or use of the extremity or area affected.
- Tingling or pins and needles
- Loss of sensation
- Nerve pain is mainly treated by treating the underlying causes. Medications can relieve pain and reduce burning, numbness, and tingling.
- Medications that may help include:
- Drugs normally used for epilepsy, antidepressants and opioid painkillers. Note: Opioid painkillers come with serious warnings about safety risks.
- Doctors can also prescribe skin patches for temporary, localized pain relief.
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, may help control pain. These are available over the counter.
- Topical ointments and creams, such as capsaicin 0.075 percent cream, containing chili pepper, may ease pain.
Non-drug measures include:
- Wearing fabrics that do not irritate, such as cotton.
- Covering sensitive areas with a plastic wound dressing or cling film.
- Using warm or cold packs, unless the problem is worsened by heat or cold.
- Stress-relief and other complementary therapies include meditation, relaxation techniques, massage, and acupuncture.
- Ultrasound therapy.
You've come to the right place.
- Ultrasound is a great option to treat Nerve Pain and Neuralgia especially when other treatments haven’t worked.
- Ultrasonic sound waves are pulsed into the affected and inflamed nerves at a million vibrations per second.
- The sound waves penetrate the skin and surface layers causing the soft tissue to vibrate. This produces increased blood flow to the area to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation and thereby relieve pain.
- Increased blood flow also delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the tissue, removes cell waste and aids healing. Regular ultrasound therapy on your Nerve Pain relieves pain and speeds the healing process.
- Ultrasound is a drug free and proven modality.
How to use your Sonic Relief to treat Nerve pain:
- Apply a quarter size dollop of ultrasound gel over the area of pain (palpate or push your fingers into the area to find the area of pain).
- Turn on the Sonic Relief device to the “high” setting.
- Apply the sound head directly over the gel and move slowly in a small circular motion no wider than 3 – 4 inches.
- Add more gel if the gel begins to dry out.
- Sonic Relief will shut off after 10 minutes at which time the treatment is complete.
- Wipe the gel from skin and the sound head with a soft cloth or paper towel.
- You may treat multiple areas one after the other – ie, foot followed by fingers, and left side, right side as needed.
- Put the Sonic Relief back in the charger to be ready anytime you need it for tennis elbow or any other soft tissue pain or injury.
- Treat each area up to 3 times per day for 2 weeks. Then treat as needed.
- Good idea: keep your Sonic Relief by your bedside. Do your treatment before you go to sleep for a chance at a pain free night. Then first thing in the morning to start the day off right. Then try to get a 3rd treatment in during the day – either before or after an activity that generally exacerbates your pain (before working with your hands, long walks or lifting).
Helped Alleviate the Pain
I have Fibromyalgia and a pinched nerve in my neck. The Sonic Relief has helped alleviate the pain from both. The special gel also contributes to the overall relief.
