What is Neuropathy?
Peripheral Neuropathy is a condition of the nervous system that typically causes numbness, tingling, burning, aching, and a variety of other symptoms. Many patients also report experiencing restless legs or throbbing, cramping pain in their hands or feet.
Peripheral neuropathy can result from problems such as traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes is diabetes.
Poor blood circulation may also be a major contributing factor that leads to neuropathy. Diabetics are especially susceptible to neuropathy due to the damage high sugar levels may inflict on the small vessels responsible for delivering blood to the nerves. High glucose levels are believed to adversely affect the amount of oxygen provided to the nerves thus leading to neuropathy.
Neuropathy is a progressive condition.
Early treatment is critical.
Neuropathy is a progressive condition, meaning it tends to get worse with time. If left untreated for too long, the nerve damage can reach a point where there is simply nothing that can be done. This is why early detection and treatment of peripheral neuropathy is critical to getting the best results.
Peripheral Neuropathy is a medical term that describes the problems that occur when your nerve endings are damaged. If you have had Peripheral Neuropathy for 3 years or less, your chance of success is extremely high. If you have been diagnosed with Neuropathy or have been suffering from the symptoms below, please contact us to schedule a consultation.
Know the Neuropathy Symptoms
- Numbness in feet
- Burning or pain in feet
- Leg cramping
- Sharp electrical-like pain
- Pain or difficulty walking
- Lack of coordination
- Difficulty sleeping from leg & foot discomfort
- Prickling or tingling feeling in feet

Method of Neuropathy Treatment
By using the best testing methods to ensure an accurate diagnosis, we are able to achieve great results for people suffering from Neuropathy.
Our skilled and compassionate team use extensive knowledge to administer this ground-breaking treatment designed to reduce pain associated with many forms of Neuropathy.
The treatment includes a series of precise techniques applied in combination with a very specific electro-stimulation program designed to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling, thus restoring normal sensation to the legs and feet. Most patients have reported improved sleep, mobility, and a return to normal activities.
Maintaining Proper Blood Circulation is Critical
Good blood circulation is very important because blood transports oxygen, vital fluids and nutrients to the nerves.
Various treatment methods administered will help stimulate the blood vessels surrounding the peripheral nerves providing them with the proper nutrients to aid in the repair. It’s like adding water to a tree and seeing the roots grow deeper and deeper. Fig. 1
The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. As long as you have not sustained at least 85% nerve damage there is hope!
