The NeuroMed Electroanalgesia Therapy
(elec·troanal·ge·si·a) AKA The Matrix
What Is Electroanalgesia Therapy?
Electroanalgesia (EA) is the treatment system by NeuroMed that delivers precise dosages of electrical energy to provide pain relief to a patient’s problem area. Electroanalgesia is quite similar in concept to the TENs unit (Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation), except they are able to deliver their actions deeper into the patient’s tissue to block those pain signals. The Electroanalgesia Neuromed has also been cleared by the FDA 510(K) process.
How Electroanalgesia Therapy Works
Electroanalgesia devices reduce pain through several pads that apply a low voltage to the afflicted area and help break up the pain signals running to the brain.
This electrical energy also increases stimulation to the nerves which in return send pain messages to the brain (peripheral nerves) to block the discomfort that results from neuropathy. When the correct dosage is applied and electrodes it will result in more pain relief.
This technology has been delivered to many hospitals, universities and other medical centers to treat patients. Some of these centers include:
- Columbia University, New York, NY
- The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH
- Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda, CA
- Charles R. Drew Univ. of Medicine & Science, LA, CA
It is also being successfully used by well over 3500 physicians in the United States. Electroanalgesia can effectively reduce pain so that our patients can get back to the life they previously enjoyed.

Are Electroanalgesia Therapy Treatments Invasive?
No, the treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical and also very effective in eliminating pain and promoting healing to the patient. The treatments are performed by placing the electrode over the body parts and are performed by using only surface electrodes.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Average patient treatment regimen consists of 15-20 treatments. Physicians have recommended daily treatments for the first week for severe pain patients, (a total of 5) followed by a re-evaluation. If medical necessity is documented, a physician may recommend that a patient receive 5 to 10 additional pain management treatments scheduled on a decreasing frequency (Ex. every other day, 2-3 times a week). A re-evaluation is generally scheduled approximately every 5 treatments. Of course the regularity of these treatments depend on your evaluation and the severity of your condition.
How Long Is The Treatment?
Typically a patient is on the machine for 25 minutes as the device is set to specific dosages and goes through different pain management programs.
