Pain Management Q & A

How does pain management work?

Pain management is different with each medical care provider, but at INDY VITAL, the team focuses on treatments that are cutting-edge, drug-free, and noninvasive. 

Acute or chronic pain can be debilitating, which is why the INDY VITAL specialists prescribe treatments that correct the underlying cause of your pain. In short, INDY VITAL treats the reason for your pain instead of just treating symptoms when they appear. 

Some of the effective pain management options at INDY VITAL include microcurrent therapy, red light therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). 


What is microcurrent therapy?

INDY VITAL offers microcurrent therapy using the state-of-the-art Hako-Med bioelectric therapy device. The Hako-Med machine generates a controlled amount of electrical current, which travels through thin leads to reach the electrodes positioned in key areas on your skin.

Microcurrent treatment, which is completely painless, enhances both electrical and chemical healing within your body. It improves circulation, enhances muscle relaxation, improves range of motion, and promotes nerve healing for effective pain relief.

Microcurrent therapy effectively treats many types of pain, including neuropathy pain, musculoskeletal pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome.


What is red light therapy?

Red light therapy, also called photobiomodulation, uses low-level laser light to jump-start your body’s injury response. The treatment relieves inflammation and initiates tissue repair, which greatly lessens your pain. 

Red light therapy is highly effective for sports injuries, arthritis pain, neuropathy pain, back pain, and neck pain. It’s a completely painless treatment that doesn’t disturb or damage your skin in any way.


What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an oxygen treatment with 100% pure pressurized oxygen. This pure oxygen infusion decreases swelling, improves circulation, and stimulates cellular renewal. 

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an effective treatment for inflammation and pain, and your specialists may prescribe it for arthritis, neuropathy pain, Alzheimer’s disease, fibromyalgia, stroke recovery, and many other conditions.


How long does it take to feel better with pain management treatment?

Many patients get immediate pain relief after their first treatment session at INDY VITAL. In general, treatments offer progressive results, giving you even better pain relief as your body regenerates and rebuilds damaged tissue.
