Frequently Asked Questions

How is this treatment different than other pain clinics?

-Neuropathy Center of Boulder County offers the neoGEN system of electric stimulation combined with local anesthetics for relief of neuropathy pain and in most cases, regrowth of healthy nerves. We are the only clinic in Colorado to offer this therapy. Other pain clinics use pain medicines, lasers, chiropractic, light therapy and vibration therapy; all of these only treat the symptoms of pain. They do not cure neuropathy or encourage nerve regrowth.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate?

-We offer a consultation at no cost to you, to determine your eligibility for our treatment program. Fill out the form below or call our office at (720) 496-0400 to schedule your consultation and assessment.

What happens in the initial consultation?

-In your first no cost to you appointment, we’ll take a full medical history; test things like foot pressure and reflexes; determine if you have large or small nerve fiber damage. We’ll also give you an overview of the treatment program and answer any questions you may have. If the treatment is a fit for you, we will schedule your treatments.

How long does the treatment take?

-Every patient is different and your treatment plan will be customized to your level of pain and extent of nerve damage. However, the average number of visits is 17 and the maximum is 24. Each session lasts about 30-40 minutes and is administered in our clinic.

How quickly will I start to feel results?

-Most patients experience the beginnings of pain relief after the first 1-2 sessions, but it’s important to keep in mind that every patient is unique. ALL of our patients report a reduction in pain on the pain scale, usually from 9 or 10 down to 1 or even 0.

Are there any medical studies for this treatment?

-Yes. This treatment protocol has been the subject of multiple scientific research studies. 87% of patients experience a significant improvement in symptoms if not complete relief. Additionally, nerve biopsies performed on patients before and after treatment show healthy nerve regrowth. If you’d like to read more about the science behind neoGEN, CLICK HERE.

Are there any side effects?

-None. The treatment is non-surgical and does not use any prescription oral medications. We also treat the whole body with a wellness approach that will improve your overall health, not just the neuropathy pain.
