HEALTH: Westlake Doctors Seeing Positive Results in Treating Pain with Neurostimulation

The new headquarters of Nightingale Centers for Regenerative Medicine will be located at the Gemini Towers, 1991 Crocker Road, 5th Floor, in Westlake.

Covered by Medicare

At their Westlake medical office, Doctors Evenhouse and Manacci have been treating patients with chronic pain by using neurostimulation therapy. The results have been positive, with most patients reporting a reduction in pain within 24 hours.

Neurostimulation is a minimally-invasive and drug-free therapy, where patients temporarily wear a small, disposable device that attaches to the ear. That neurostimulation device emits a low, imperceptible electrical current into the external ear, then on to the vagus nerve in the brain. This nerve affects the pain pathways in the spinal cord, and reduces pain signals regardless of their cause. Only licensed medical providers may apply this device.

This treatment has been used in Europe for over seven years, and has just recently been cleared by the FDA for use in the U.S. The doctors at Nightingale Centers for Regenerative Medicine treat patients with many types of painful conditions, including arthritis, joint injuries, fibromyalgia, migraines, neuropathy, back and neck pain, peripheral arterial disease, and others.
