Battling postherpetic neuralgia goes beyond managing pain; it’s a quest for relief! This was precisely what our 65-year-old client was after – and finally found via Equiscope therapy. Let’s explore the effectiveness of Equiscope in providing relief from persistent pain and inflammation. But first, a look at the problem of postherpetic neuralgia.

Postherpetic Neuralgia: More Than Just a Nuisance

Postherpetic neuralgia, the chronic pain that follows a shingles outbreak, is more than just a nuisance; it’s a serious medical condition. It occurs when the nerves damaged by the varicella-zoster virus continue to send pain signals even after the shingles rash has healed.

This nerve pain can be sharp, burning, or throbbing and often comes with sensitivity to touch and temperature changes.

Shielding Yourself from Shingles and Its Aftermath

Lowering the risk of postherpetic neuralgia starts with preventing shingles. That sounds obvious! There’s no cure for shingles at the moment so prevention is your aim. You can work towards this by:

  • Having a shingles vaccine (the latest offers up to four years of protection).
  • Asking for early antiviral treatment to speed up healing and lower your risk of complications.
  • Boosting your immune system with a healthy lifestyle.

A Holistic Approach to Symptom Management

Managing the symptoms of postherpetic neuralgia traditionally involves a combination of

  • medications and topical treatments to alleviate pain,
  • stress management techniques (meditation, yoga),
  • regular, gentle exercise to help maintain mobility,
  • identifying and avoiding triggers that worsen your pain (extreme temperatures, tight clothing), and
  • using cold packs for temporary inflammation relief.

A Journey Towards Relief with Equiscope Therapy

The 65-year-old female client had been battling postherpetic neuralgia – experiencing intense, rhythmic nerve pain on the right side of her head.

The recommended Equiscope therapy for this condition focused on two protocols. The first protocol used a headband to apply gentle electrical impulses to the head, targeting the area most affected by pain. The second protocol applied higher intensity to the governing vessel for deeper pain relief. The second protocol was repeated to maximize its effectiveness in reducing pain and discomfort.

The outcome of the therapy was promising. After the first protocol, the patient noticed her pain getting better, even though the procedure was quite uncomfortable. The second protocol helped with the pain even more, but it was difficult to complete due to its intensity.

Despite the challenges, she continued with Equiscope therapy by repeating the second protocol. Over time, these consistent sessions significantly reduced her pain and improved her life, so that living with postherpetic neuralgia became less troublesome.

The Electro-Equiscope has been around for a long time, but in terms of how it deals with pain and inflammation, it’s an innovation compared to traditional remedies!

The therapy uses targeted electrical impulses to scan, regulate, and normalize the body’s bioelectrical processes. This can help repair and restore nerve function at a cellular level – directly addressing the disrupted nerve signals that are often the root cause of chronic pain and inflammation. This approach to pain relief stands out in its approach to managing the pain of conditions like postherpetic neuralgia.
