Triggering nerve regeneration with advanced nerve therapy
- Plasma exchange: Plasma exchange essentially “cleans” your blood. Certain blood components are replaced with plasma from a donor. This treatment has been found to be effective for some neurological diseases.
- TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation): Electrodes can be placed on the skin to deliver gentle electrical current to block nerve pain. The smaller nerve fibers are pain receptors. The TENS treatment stimulates the larger nerve fibers so that the sensation of pain is reduced.
- Intravenous immune globulin: This treatment can treat some nerve disorders, including GBS and CIDP. This treatment has proven to be effective in promoting nerve healing and regeneration in certain patients.
- Cell-based therapies: Grafted nerve cells can be placed to trigger nerve regeneration. Various types of cells can be used for these therapies, based upon the patient’s condition.
