More than 20 million Americans suffer from peripheral neuropathy, which is a chronic, painful disease that has no cure. It is most commonly found in Caucasians, males and people that have jobs involving a lot of repetitive movements. Poor lifestyle choices, behaviors and conditions can put many at risk for developing this condition. Many Tulsans suffer from this disease and Invictus Healthcare System wants to help the Tulsa are by bringing in state-of-the-art equipment to relieve pain without the use of any medication.
Neuropathy is the medical term that means disease or dysfunction of one or more peripheral nerves. When nerve cells are injured, they cannot successfully communicate with the brain. Neuropathy affects the three types of peripheral nerves: sensory, motor and autonomic. These nerves connect the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) to the rest of your body. When those nerves are damaged it produces severe pain, numbness, burning sensation, tingling, loss of coordination, cramping, inability to feel, muscle weakness and many more symptoms.
The most common cause of neuropathy is diabetes, but there are also other medical factors and conditions that can cause nerve damage: injury to nerves through repetitive motions, vitamin deficiencies/imbalances, autoimmune disorders, infections and exposure to heavy metals and certain chemicals.
Invictus Healthcare System is a locally owned, Tulsa business that is bringing state-of-the-art medical technology to our community. By using Sanexas electrotherapy, we are able to treat chronic pain associated with peripheral neuropathy and chronic musculoskeletal pain non-invasively and without the use of addictive medications. Sanexas uses therapeutic energy waves to stimulate the body on a cellular level to optimize energy levels between your cells that will heal injured tissues and relieve pain.
The Sanexas electrotherapy treats neuropathy and other chronic pain at the source rather than masking pain with medication. It is non-invasive and has minimal side effects. Patients describe the tingling and vibrating pressure of the 20-minute treatment session to be a pleasurable sensation and experience. The average patient will start noticing changes in their symptoms after 6-15 treatments, but some receive relief sooner. It is very important that patients have multiple treatments in order to achieve optimal results.
