New Neurogenx NerveCenter Now Open In Brandon

In a treatment milestone for neuropathy patients, a new Neurogenx NerveCenter opened its doors in Brandon in September. One of a growing network of 22 NerveCenters across the country, the Brandon medical facility is a partnership between The Health Solutions Medical Company, owned by Kenneth Wetherington, DC, and Neurogenx, the creators of an innovative nerve treatment program that has helped physicians end neuropathy pain for hundreds of patients. Neuropathy is the tingling, burning, pain and numbness in feet and hands caused by nerve damage due to illness such as diabetes; chronic nerve conditions such as fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel syndrome; chemotherapy and trauma, among many other things. It affects nearly 30% of Americans over the age of 40. Traditionally difficult to treat, patients often go without relief for the painful symptoms. In worst-case scenarios, neuropathy can lead to chronic pain, sleeplessness, loss of balance, falls and injuries that don’t heal.

For a limited time, patients who want to learn more about the Neurogenx treatment can arrange a complimentary consultation by contacting the Brandon NerveCenter appointment office at 813-603-6400.

20/20 Window Cleaning Announces Its Sister Company 20/20 Soft Wash

What is 20/20 Soft Wash? A new company using soft washing as an alternative to pressure washing. Soft washing uses water-based, biodegradable chemicals to emulsify dirt, grime and algae while sanitizing the surface. Its 100 percent biodegradable chemicals do not damage your property or plants. Also, soft washing uses one-third the water of pressure washing and lasts four to six times longer than pressure washing.

One of its specialties is roof cleaning—in particular, those black ‘stains’ on your roof, which is algae feeding on the limestone filler in asphalt shingles. Unlike pressure washing, which can cause further damage to the roof, the Softwash Systems™ use low-pressure pumps and biodegradable cleaners to remove mold, mildew, algae, moss, and airborne contaminants like road grime and sand.

Soft washing is also ideal for cleaning gutters, soffits, pool cages, lanais, fences, decks, patio furniture and much more. From the roof to the driveway, 20/20 Soft Wash can help your home look its best. To get a free estimate, call 863-644-4000.

For more information, visit www.20-20windowcleaning.com. The office is located at 6155 S. Florida Ave. Suite 3 in Lakeland and is opened Monday to Friday 8 a.m.-6 p.m.
