NEUROMODULATION

CHANGING YOUR BRAIN THROUGH

NEUROMODULATION

Neuromodulation technology acts directly upon the nerves and the Nervous System. It is the alteration—or modulation—of nerve activity by delivering non-invasive electrical signals directly to a target area. Neuromodulation treats a wide range of conditions, like neurological conditions. Different neuromodulation techniques, tools, and devices treat various conditions and are used during patient treatment at the discretion of Dr. Alicia Brown. The neuromodulation techniques used at Better Brain & Body include Vagus Nerve Stimulation, Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation, and Peripheral Nerve Stimulation. All neuromodulation techniques utilized at our clinic are non-invasive and pain-free.

 

The gammaCore is a vagus nerve stimulator device that helps reduce the pain of migraines and headaches and their frequency by up to 25% monthly.

 

The Alpha-Stim is a cranial electrotherapy stimulator that treats anxiety, PTSD, insomnia, depression, and pain. Some studies suggest the Alpha-Stim can provide relief for fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain.

 

Peripheral nerve stimulation alters nerve activity by directly delivering electrical stimulation to a target area, which stimulates related pathways throughout the central nervous system (e.g., the brainstem, cerebellum, cortex, etc.).

 

The Pulsetto is a vagus nerve stimulation device that helps reduce anxiety and stress and improves sleep. 

 

The Vilim Ball uses neuromodulation therapy, delivering comfortable vibrations to the nervous system to reduce hand tremors. 

Altering nerve activity in the central nervous system can be beneficial when treating various disorders such as epilepsy, movement disorders, balance disorders, chronic pain, depression, or anxiety. During your complimentary 15-minute phone consultation with Dr. Brown, you can learn more about how neuromodulation therapy may help you or a loved one. 

Neuromodulation, in general, is shown to have positive effects in the treatment of the following:

- Depression

- Anxiety Disorders

- Chronic Pain

- Epilepsy

- Movement Disorders

- Cognitive Disorders

- Stroke Rehabilitation

- Sleep Disorders

- Concussion/ Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

The ultimate goal of Neuromodulation is to modify neural activity in the nervous system to restore or attempt to normalize the functioning of neural circuits involved in specific conditions or symptoms.
