We OFFER SOLUTIONS FOR PEOPLE WHO SUFFER WITH FIBROMYALGIA
Fibromyalgia is somewhat controversial in the medical community with many physicians believing that it is a “catch all” diagnosis used when a definitive reason for the patient’s pain can’t be found. One common line of thinking… no one knows what causes fibromyalgia. Some patients have had the symptoms for a number of years before having it diagnosed as fibromyalgia. Some physicians think that it is a central nervous system problem, while others think that it is muscle related.
At Outcome Medical of Georgia, we believe the condition is triggered because of nerve root damage (nerves at the spinal opening). It is not uncommon for the spine to become misaligned as a result of an injury or even severe stress. If the nerve root is injured and becomes inflamed, that nerve or nerves lose the ability to transmit a nerve signal, becoming unable to fully communicate with and control the bodily functions and muscles for which it is responsible. The researchers at LSU believe the nerve root damage is the reason for the cascade of symptoms such as: PAIN (severe and often throughout the entire body); INABILITY TO SLEEP (usually only in short periods of one to two hours at a time); and some form of ANXIETY (often with no specific reason) all believed to have a direct correrlation to the nerve root pathology. The research study with sensory nerve root pathology at the LSU Pain Center confirmed the nerve root pathology in the fibromyalgia test group. Our doctors use sensory nerve testing, a non-invasive, painless test that will identify nerve root pathology in the sensory (feeling) nerves, and if nerve root pathology is confirmed, the treatment focuses on treating the injured nerves, the inflammation, and pain associated with the nerve condition.
Outcome Medical Of Georgia’s treatments incorporate a protocol that includes nutritional assessment and management, pain therapies that include full blood workups and consultation with a board certified rheumatologist, Electronic Signal treatments, (EST) an exterrnally applied pulsed electronic signal with computer controlled frequencies designed to influence cellular function, combined with sensory nerve blocks when neccessary. The protocol objective is to break the pain cycle, (loop) has been used on thousands of patients with reversal of symptoms associated with fibromyalgia in a large number of the patients. After treatment, many patients report reduced or elimination of their pain. Most patients report a return to a full night of restful sleep, clear thinking and the reduction, if not elimination, of their need for antidepressant, pain, and sleeping medications. They tell our doctors and staff how wonderful it is to be able to go back to doing the activities they did before this hideous disease affected them.

COMMON SYMPTOMS OF NEUROPATHY
Without question, neuropathy is a very large peoblem in this country. There are a number of causes, such as diabetes, toxin, nerve impingement, and disease. The first step for the physician, is a comprehemsive history and physical. Treatments will vary acording to finding in the history and physical. What ever the cause the symptoms are very simular such as numbness, “pins and needles” or tingling in your feet, sweling, trouble sleeping at night because of leg, hand, or foot pain. Shooting pains in the legs similar to an electric shock, occasional twitching in legs, occasional aches in your toes. Depending on the severity of the conditon, the patient may have difficulty walking or maintaining balance. Very often the patient’s feet feel like they are burning.
Our doctors often order a blood profile and look at the level of esential minerials and “B” vitiams which are very important in nerve lelated neuropathies. We are very proud of the success we have seen inour neuropathy patients who truly suffer with this problem and are treated with our protocols and technology.
