Do you accept medicare or any other type of medical insurance ?
There is no insurance billing code for Reset treatment at this stage, so we cannot legally bill your insurance for your procedure. Patients with F.S.A ( Flexible spending account )or H.S.A ( health savings account) health insurance plans might cover the Reset treatment.
What are the side effects of the Reset Treatment?
So far we have not encountered any side effects. Like with any injection, there is always a risk of infection from the needle or allergic reaction to the medications.
How do Reset Injections work?
At RESET Pain Center, we have discovered that hyperactive pain receptors cause pain. These hyperactive centers will vary per patient and by condition. Locating these hyperactive pain receptors is at the heart of our novel treatment. Once found, a series of injections will reset the activity of those pain receptors back to normal. As a result, our novel treatment decreases the pain almost instantaneously, with patients feeling significant relief by the time they leave RESET Pain Center.

Additional Information About Our Sciatica Treatment
Results We Have Observed
87% of patients with sciatica treated with Reset Injections report pain relief and an increased ability to perform daily activities. Furthermore, they do not wake up in the middle of the night anymore due to chronic pain. Additionally, patients share that they use fewer pain medications due to the decrease in chronic pain. When pain medications are needed, they are able to take lower doses.
About The Treatment
We measure the activity of the hyperactive nerve endings on a scale from 1 to 10. If the nerve endings are more hyperactive and near a ten, we use more and stronger medication. The medications injected vary with the severity of the pain and the disease causing the pain. However, we never use steroids or opioids in our injections.
Additionally, since we prioritize the comfort of our patients, we use the smallest needles available.
After the Reset Injections, patients recover for 10 to 20 minutes before they are discharged from the center.
Other Helpful Information About Sciatica
Sciatica is any type of pain caused by the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the nerve that runs from your lower back, through your buttocks, to the bottom of your foot. The body has a right and left sciatic nerve running down each leg, but sciatica is typically felt in one leg. Pain stemming from the sciatic nerve is a result of pinched or compressed nerves, irritation, or inflammation. Sciatica can be mild or severe, with pain in your lower back and buttocks that travels down your leg to your foot. In some cases, you can be numb, weak, and struggle walking. Sciatica is very common. It affects about 10% to 40% of people at some point in their life. In most situations, sciatica will last a month or two. However, when sciatica pain is long-lasting and persistent, treatment may help.
