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.
Does the Reset Treatment hurt?
The amount of discomfort from the Reset treatment is minimal. At the end of the treatment, most patients ask us, “that is it?”. It is much less than what is felt during nerve blocks.
What should I expect from my Reset Treatment?
It is essential to understand that, realistically, the pain you are currently experiencing will not go away but will be significantly reduced, and your activity level will be much improved.
How long does it take for the Reset Treatment to improve my pain?
97% of patients feel better and are experiencing much less pain before they leave the office.
How many Reset Treatments do I need for maximal benefit?
In my experience, I found out that 2 Reset treatments 2 weeks apart allow for locating and treatment of the hyperactive receptors involved in the creation and maintenance of your pain. As a result, you will experience better and longer-lasting relief.

The Reset treatment is not in the spine or bone.
What is injected in the Reset treatment?
It is an injection of a unique proprietary blend of medications designed for resetting the activities of the nerves involved in the transmission of pain back to normal levels. The potency of the medicine varies depending on the condition and pain levels being treated.

Additional Information About Our Shingles Treatment
Results We Have Observed
76% of patients with postherpetic neuralgia describe a noticeable improvement in their pain. They can wear their clothes and be more active despite still having some residual pain
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 Shingles
Shingles is an infection caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox; that virus is called varicella-zoster. When you get chickenpox and recover from it, the virus still stays in your body. For some people, after many years, the virus can wake up and resurface as shingles. However, this does not happen to everyone who has had chickenpox. Shingles has a higher chance of reactivating under a few circumstances; if you have been sick recently, are under a lot of stress, have cancer, are receiving chemotherapy, recently had an organ transplant, or are over the age of 50 years old. Shingles can be a very painful infection marked by a rash on one side of your body, commonly under your arm on your torso. Early signs of shingles are headaches, exhaustion, stomach aches, fever, and chills. Typically before you notice a rash, you will feel burning, itching, and tingling, in the area where the rash will develop. Symptoms usually go away after three to five weeks, but it can cause complications like chronic pain, vision loss, or hearing problems. Chronic pain after a shingles infection is called postherpetic neuralgia. It is common to experience pain in the same spot your rash occurred for a few weeks or months after your rash goes away. For some people, the pain can last for several years and limit their daily life. If you are experiencing chronic pain from a shingles infection, there are options available for you, and it is best to speak to a medical professional. Vision loss can happen when shingles develop in the eye, but it is not always permanent. Hearing problems can occur if shingles develop around the ear, but like vision loss and chronic pain, this is not always permanent. One out of every three people develops shingles. There are roughly one million shingle cases annually in the United States.
