Our Personalized Approach
Conditions We Treat
Electroanalgesia By NeuroMed
One of the most effective non-surgical, drug-free treatments we offer is Electroanalgesia (EA). This revolutionary pain management system by NeuroMed delivers precise dosages of electrical stimulation to peripheral nerves, which are the nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to limbs and organs.
Electroanalgesic treatments are similar to TENS (Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation) because they both use electrical frequencies to decrease pain. Electroanalgesia treatments use frequency rates much higher than those delivered by TENS. TENS units deliver 1 to 250 pulses per second, while Electroanaglesia (EA) delivers 8,300 to 10,000 pulses per second.
The electrical energy is delivered deeper into the patient’s tissue due to lowered skin resistance. Higher frequencies reduce the affected nerves’ ability to transmit any pain signals, which also promotes healing. We are basically blocking pain signals with electricity instead of injecting or stimulating. With the correct dosage and electrodes, Electroanaglesia can safely decrease pain intensity, providing patients with an improved quality of life.
We are proud to offer the only NeuroMed Electroanaglesia machine in Western New York. It is an FDA-cleared medical device with clinical indication of use to stimulate peripheral nerves to provide pain relief and symptomatic relief of chronic long-term intractable pain. Our team is highly qualified and trained to administer this treatment.
Electroanalglesia uses specific patented pre-programmed software algorithms to bio-electrically trigger different desired physiological mechanisms of actions from frequencies starting at .1 Hz – .5 Hz (for stimulation), then changing throughout the treatment to include a 5,000 Hz frequency. EA Technology is continually using a specific carrier frequency, and physicians are changing the intensity (dosage) of the current to match parameters delivered at the appropriate time precisely.
Electroanalgesia is very successful. Results show that 75-80% of patients get better with treatment and have lasting results; however, there is no guarantee of success. Additionally, Electroanalgesia (EA) is now being used to reduce afferent nerves’ ability to transmit pain signals. This treatment also promotes healing through the depolarization effects on the nerve cells.
Receiving Electroanalgesia treatment can treat:
Class IV Laser Therapy for Pain
At WNY Pain Relief & Integrative Wellness Center, we offer laser therapy for pain to treat various conditions. It is stress-free, FDA-approved, safe, and painless! Class IV laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light with a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues exposed to the laser. As a result of exposure to the laser, cells of tendons, ligaments, and muscles repair themselves faster.
Unlike some pharmacological solutions, there are no known negative side effects. Most patients report no sensation at all while receiving laser therapy. Laser therapy is fast-acting. Many patients in high levels of acute pain experience relief after just a few treatments.
Typical treatment requires 5 to 20 sessions, each lasting less than 10 to 15 minutes. Laser therapy is painless and produces long-lasting results. With an over-90% success rate, we are proud to be at the forefront of laser therapy for pain in Cheektowaga, NY.
Our strategy is to provide you with the most comprehensive treatment program possible by integrating advanced holistic medicine with new technologies. This provides you with the highest chance of reaching your health goals.

Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy has become an advanced, non-surgical tool in treating arm, leg, neck, and back pain associated with herniated and degenerative spinal disc disease. Spinal decompression takes the pressure off the discs and allows them to return to their natural state.
Spinal decompression therapy is an FDA-approved procedure for chronic and severe low back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, and more. Whether your pain is chronic or intermittent, we will develop a treatment plan for long-term relief.
Disc Rehydration Therapy unloads pressure on neurological, vascular, and osseous components. It is now the primary non-surgical safe and effective treatment for patients with spinal stenosis, herniated disc, degenerative joint disease, facet arthritis, disc bulge, and more. As fluids are drawn back into the damaged disc’s surrounding area, nutrients, blood, and healing substances help reconstitute the disc.
Unlike drugs and injections, this new therapy is natural, and its effects are lasting and often permanent. Because of muscle atrophy and instability, neuro-compression results from abnormal disc, vascular or osseous pressure. A prescribed series of decompression procedures, performed by an expertly trained physician and staff, is indicated to relieve severe chronic low back pain.
Neuromuscular massage therapy is an ongoing treatment and specialized form of manual massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in a muscle. These strain areas, also known as tender or trigger points, tend to cause ongoing muscular pain symptoms.
These trigger points are small areas of the muscle where there is a contracture of tissue, and the lack of blood and nutrients causes an inability for that muscle to relax. This can be extremely painful, not just a chronic ache that can be solved by deep tissue.
Receiving a neuromuscular massage can treat:
- Back Pain
- Disc Bulging, Herniation, or Degeneration
- Facet Syndrome/Sciatica
- Spinal Stenosis
- Neck Pain
- Leg Pain/Weakness
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) Therapy
During Whole Body Vibration Therapy, patients stand or lie on a vibrating platform, and energy is transmitted to your body. This causes your muscles to relax and contract dozens of times per second. A session usually lasts between 2 to 20 minutes.
WBV Therapy potentially has a wide range of benefits, including reducing low back pain, improving balance, strength, and flexibility for seniors, without negative side effects. It can also help those suffering from MS, stroke, spinal cord injury, or Parkinson’s Disease. WBV Therapy is a great alternative for people who can’t engage in conventional exercise. WBV is not suitable for those with a pacemaker, recent fracture, acute thrombosis, gall or kidney stones, malignant tumors, or epilepsy.
WBV has been shown to achieve its effects without increasing blood pressure and thus is a very safe form of exercise. The absence of impact forces associated with running or walking means that WBV allows weight-bearing exercise to be performed with much less chance of pain or aggravation of arthritis or other musculoskeletal conditions. Several medical studies have reported positive increases in bone density and a reduction in incontinence and constipation.
Neuropathy, or Peripheral Neuropathy, is a disorder of the peripheral nerves that usually affects the hands and feet, causing weakness, numbness, and pain. The course of peripheral neuropathy can come and go slowly over many years or quickly and debilitatingly. However, with the right treatment, peripheral neuropathy can often be controlled or even reversed.
Peripheral neuropathy is often misdiagnosed or thought to be merely a side effect of another disease like diabetes, cancer, or kidney failure. Many common painkillers are not effective against pain caused by neuropathy, and many traditional treatments don’t provide adequate results.
At WNY Pain Relief & Integrative Wellness Center, we have the treatment options available to bring neuropathy sufferers real pain relief and improved quality of life. We are experienced at helping people repair the nerve damage from neuropathy.
If you have already tried other medical therapies such as medications and physical therapy, there is a good chance our system is a good fit for you. Our techniques that address the neurological, metabolic, and nutritional challenges allow us to get rid of chronic symptoms no matter how long they have been there.
Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy
- Numbness in feet
- Electrical, crawling pain
- Restless legs
- Stiffness in the hands or feet
- Pins and needles sensations
- Fatigue in the legs
- Tingling or burning in feet
- Balance problems
- Cold feeling in hands or feet
- Shooting pains in the arms or legs
Infrared Sauna Therapy
Infrared saunas use light from infrared lamps to create heat that warms your body directly, resulting in deeper penetration at lower temperatures than traditional saunas. Top health experts recommend this treatment as a non-toxic, no side-effect way of ridding the body of harmful toxins and pollutants, hefty metals.
Infrared Sauna Therapy also helps with pain relief, fibromyalgia, weight loss, blood circulation, anti-aging, skin purification, and high blood pressure. With about three sessions per week, you’ll begin to notice an improvement in your overall health.
Benefits of Sunlighten mPulse Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna Therapy:
Sunlighten full-spectrum Infrared saunas heat the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. The infrared sauna therapy we offer has a 7-10 times stronger detoxification rate than a conventional sauna. This allows your body to sweat safely and naturally and detoxify sweat at the cellular level.
- Pain Relief
Find the relief you’ve been looking for from the Infrared heat that penetrates tissues and joints to eliminate aches and pains, such as fibromyalgia. We incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and speed up recovery time.
- Weight Loss
As the body works to cool itself during an infrared sauna session, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. Infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Just a 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 700 calories.
- Lowers Blood Pressure
The deep sweat from an Infrared sauna makes the heart pump faster, which increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure, and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows that using an infrared sauna session can lower blood pressure. Multiple sessions have proven to improve impaired blood vessel function in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
- Improves Circulation
The infrared rays heat the muscles, which causes an increase in blood flow, similar to what happens during exercise. Using the Infrared sauna often can significantly increase blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
- Anti-Aging and Skin Purification
Infrared sauna sessions have anti-aging properties by healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. They stimulate collagen production to improve overall skin tone, help acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, open wounds, skin lesions, and cuts. Infrared rays also reduce wrinkles, improves skin tone, increases elasticity, and helps to reduce cellulite.
