Do you suffer from strange sensations in your feet, legs, hands, or fingers? Do you have pain while walking?
Neuropathy affects every part of your life – walking, sitting, sleeping, socializing, your ability to enjoy relationships, and so much more. If you have tried “everything” like Anodyne therapy, physical therapy, or other medications and you are not getting the results you want, then this may be the most important information you have ever read!
Most treatments fail because they only cover up your symptoms and do not heal the damaged nerves.
Peripheral Neuropathy is a common condition caused by the damage to the peripheral nerves of the nervous system. The peripheral nerves spread out from the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nerves relay nerve impulses and sensory information from the body to the spinal cord, where they are then carried to the brain.
Neuropathy can result from pinched nerves or diabetes. Diet and exercise is very important in controlling diabetes.
What are the Risk Factors of Neuropathy?
A number of factors increase the risk for Peripheral Neuropathy. Risk factors include:
• Alcoholism and alcohol abuse
• Certain diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, lupus, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, rheumatoid arthritis, hepatitis, vasculitis, hypothyroidism, and HIV/AIDS
• Certain medications, including chemotherapy
• Exposure to certain toxins, such as insecticides, lead, mercury, glues, solvents, and arsenic
• Long term pressure on a nerve due to such conditions as a tight cast, long surgical procedures, or carpal tunnel syndrome
• Nerve trauma
• Poor circulation
• Vitamin B and Vitamin E deficiency
The neuropathy treatments stimulate dead or damaged nerves to become functional again. The treatments include the use of our specialized equipment and daily supplements which will help restore healthy nerves.
A recent patient has had Peripheral Arterial Disease for over 15 years. He had arterial blood flow but a minimum amount of venous blood flow back to the body. This has resulted in discoloration and swelling with some numbness present. Four weeks of treatments at Cole Family Practice, consisting of Direct Current modality and supplements, has had amazing results.
