Neuromodulation is a term for therapies that use electrical impulses or medication to alter the activity of diseased or injured nerves. By stimulating the nerves with electricity, their activity can be modulated, increasing their signaling abilities or fully blocking them.
Nerves within the spine, ganglion nerves, and peripheral nerves can all be affected. In the case of pharmaceutical treatment, pumps are placed within the body to deliver a constant dose of medication to the affected areas.
These methods are successful in treating a large range of neurologic disorders, including but not limited to urinary incontinence, Parkinson’s disease, and ischemic disorders. Here at Loop Medical Center, we offer a variety of neuromodulation treatments for headaches, tremors, spinal cord damage, and chronic pain. These therapies provide alternatives for treatments such as the use of high-dose opioids and invasive surgery.
