Treatment Schedule

  • The first 2 visits are to see if you qualify by doing PAINLESS nerve studies.
  • The treatment visits are Monday-Wednesday-Friday for 4 weeks.
  • Each lasts 1 1/2 hours. You get MIRE, TENS, and nerve blocks at each visit.
  • Midway, and at the final 2 visits we will re-assess with nerve studies.
  • If the nerve study reveals normal function or you’re satisfied with your pain relief/overall improvement, you are discharged.
  • If the nerve study reveals persistant issues, or pain is still not improved, you may continue therapy.
  • After two cycles through, we stop all interventions and let your body respond over time.
  • Follow-up nerve studies are done at 3, 6, & 12 months for continued monitoring.
