Doctor Tom Explains POWERDOT

By Causenta Wellness

Muscle function can decrease during chemotherapy. This is often the result of a condition called neuropathy, which presents as numbness or tingling, especially in the limbs. Neuropathy can also develop as a result of diabetes or a traumatic brain injury. Neuropathy can affect the ability to walk, button a shirt, or pick up small objects. Sometimes, it can lead to more severe issues such as increased heart rate and blood pressure, trouble breathing, paralysis, or organ failure.

One option for patients to relieve neuropathy symptoms without medication or invasive treatment is called PowerDot. Originally developed as a sports medicine tool, at Causenta, we use our knowledge of exercise and physical therapies to help all our patients. Our holistic team approach to care allows us to offer the best solutions to patients based on their individual needs. 

PowerDot is a technology tool that can be used at home and is very effective in stimulating the muscle fibers to help with recovery. The device is small and is managed by an app you can download to a phone or tablet. It consists of pads that attach to the body and a small pod that powers the electrical signals that enter your body. These electrical signals cause muscle contractions that increase blood flow and nutrient distribution. Because of these qualities, premier athletes often use this device to help them recover after a workout, training session, or game. 

As a home remedy for neuropathy, it is important to work with your care team to ensure you are properly using the device and that it is effective for your condition. “We take pride in evaluating the results our patients are experiencing,” says Dr. Tom Incledon, Founder & CEO of Causenta. “This is especially important for patients who develop chemo-induced neuropathy because we need to make sure that all of the strategies are working together effectively to get the patient back to health.”

At Causenta, we also offer a Home Care Health Program [link to post about this], which is designed for people with cancer or other serious illnesses who want to do their best job possible to fight the disease but need to stay home to care for their family or work. This 6-month program gives patients a roadmap to follow and is personalized for their needs just like recommendations for our on-site patients. 

Our goals are to support patients, give them expert advice, and back to health whether at home or here at Causenta. PowerDot is one tool that can be utilized either way. If you are interested in learning more about this technology, our Home Care Health Program, or services for athletes, schedule your complimentary 30-minute consultation today.
