Lanham, MD (PRWEB) December 30, 2009
Diabetics around the world now have new hope for relief of their pain associated with diabetic neuropathy with the introduction of Dr. Ajrawat’s Dynamic Model for Pain Management, a multi-modality treatment created by Dr. Paramjit Singh Ajrawat. Dr. Ajrawat’s system utilizes a variety of treatment modalities to bring relief to those with diabetic neuropathy.
Dr. P.S. Ajrawat, M.D., a pioneering, qualified pain specialist who is fellowship trained and certified in pain management, has used creative and innovative research to reach his new landmark treatment. This revolutionary treatment modality uses a combination of treatment models to bring relief, including sympathetic nerve blocks, trigger point injections, antidepressants, narcotic and non-narcotic analgesics, Dr. Ajrawat’s Air-Pulse Autonomic Meditation Therapy and physical rehabilitation, including strengthening and stretching exercises, psychotherapy, walking alternated with jogging and diet.
“Diabetic neuropathy is becoming more familiar due to frustration from both the medical community and diabetics regarding the wont of achieving optimal results using conventional or newer approaches, including the use of medications like gabapentin, exercise and other adjunctive treatment measures,” Dr. Ajrawat says. “My new model for pain management is specifically designed to significantly reduce or eliminate the pain of diabetic neuropathy, restore the circulation to the damaged nerves, allowing sufferers to regain their lives and live free from pain and associated disability.”
Diabetic neuropathy is a disorder of the nerves caused by high levels of sugars in the body in which people with diabetes can, over a length of time, develop nerve and tissue damage in various parts of the body, including the peripheral nerves, heart, digestive system, kidneys and reproductive system. Different types of diabetic neuropathies exist, including peripheral neuropathy, autonomic neuropathy, proximal neuropathy and focal neuropathy.
Diabetic neuropathy can result from multiple factors, including high blood sugar levels, autoimmune deficiency, neurovascular factors (ischemia) or decreased blood supply to the nerves. Complimentary factors like smoking, alcohol intake and use of various medications such as cancer treatment drugs can contribute to or precipitate the condition.
Pathogenesis of diabetic neuropathy include micro vascular changes like vasoconstriction which can lead to capillary basement membrane and endothelial hyperplasia and eventually to low oxygen tension and hypoxia, micro vascular dysfunction and ischemia. Neuronal dysfunction can develop simultaneously that is neuronal ischemia and ultimate manifestation of neurological as well as other symptoms and signs like pain, numbness, burning and tingling.
Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy vary from numbness or tingling to a burning type of pain in the toes, feet, legs, arms, hands and fingertips.
In addition, diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, weakness, dizziness, problems with urination (urinary incontinence or loss of bladder control), erectile dysfunction, impotence, vision change, fasciculation, muscle weakness, and difficulty standing, walking or weight bearing are common. Other symptoms include depression, anxiety, insomnia, weight loss and loss of functionality (the inability to walk or stand).
Up to now, diabetic neuropathy treatment has been oriented toward pain relief and associated symptoms mainly through the use of pharmaco-therapeutic approaches including anti-diabetics, antihypertensives like ACE Inhibitors, narcotic analgesics, gabapentin and similar preparations, and other adjunctive approaches like TENS and acupuncture. However, these treatments have been met with little success.
Dr. Ajrawat’s Dynamic Model for Pain Management is a conservative model for pain management administered by a qualified pain specialist (fellowship trained and certified in pain management) that addresses all components of diabetic neuropathy, including both the physical and psychological. Treatment results have been optimal and outstanding.
Dr. Ajrawat’s approach to treating diabetic neuropathy is based on his method of increasing blood supply to the nerves through the use of various modalities such as sympathetic nerve blocks and daily use of his scientific meditation therapy, Dr. Ajrawat’s Air-Pulse Autonomic Meditation Therapy®. The Air-Pulse therapy is based on Dr. Ajrawat’s concept of bi-directional psychosomatic autonomic feedback to reverse damage done to the nerves caused by ischemia. With close follow up and treatments, repetitive use of sympathetic nerve blocks, Air-Pulse therapy, antidepressants, analgesics, physical rehabilitation and psychotherapy, the results have been incredibly positive.
“Treating Physician’s (pain specialist) training, knowledge, clinical skills, dedication, positive therapeutic alliance with the patient, active patient participation, close follow ups and treatments and conservative approach is absolutely essential for a favorable treatment outcome”, says Dr. Ajrawat.
Air-Pulse therapy is an autonomic meditation therapy which is revolutionary, scientific, non-denominational medical therapy that helps restore the lost homeostatic balance in mind and body. It helps minimize the ischemia and restore circulation through natural means by establishing a balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic components of the autonomic nervous system.
With the help of this self-administered meditation therapy the efferent mechanisms are balanced by afferent mechanisms, a new paradigm -- a scientific revolution. It also helps normalize the levels of various neurotransmitters such as serotonin, nor-epinephrine, acetylcholine, dopamine and glutamate, among others. Studies conducted by Dr. Ajrawat show this approach helps not only decrease pain, but also restores loss of function and lowers the dosage intake of various anti-diabetic medications, oral as well as parenteral.
Individual and group psychotherapy provided by Dr. Sukhveen Kaur Ajrawat, M.D., a board certified psychiatrist, helps patients with pain associated stress and depression and mental disability associated with diabetic neuropathy.
Hence, with use of Dr. Ajrawat’s Dynamic Model for Pain Management, iatrogenic morbidity and pain is significantly reduced or eliminated. The patient’s healing is enhanced by their active involvement in this revolutionary therapy and therapeutic process.
