Peripheral neuropathy can be one of the most debilitating conditions that seniors deal with.
It typically results in pain, numbness, tingling, and other symptoms in the feet and hands. Even worse, as the nerves in the feet begin to die off, balance problems begin to develop, and frequent falls can become a daily risk.
If you’re suffering from neuropathy you’re probably fed up with endless drugs like Gabapentin, Lyrica, or Cymbalta that at best just mask your symptoms.
Peripheral neuropathy usually develops from a lack of blood flow nourishing your nerves, like a tree that’s not getting enough water. When this happens the protective coating around the nerves begins to deteriorate, leading to numbness, tingling, and pain.
The first step of our neuropathy treatment process is determining how much nerve damage is present, and if your condition can still be treated.
We perform a non-invasive series of tests that tell us just how much sensation has been lost, and what options exist for you. This Neuropathy Severity Exam will show us if your neuropathy reached the “point of no return”, or if you can benefit from our treatment program, which consists of cutting-edge, non-invasive therapies designed to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) to help reverse nerve damage in the feet or hands.
As sensation begins to improve, a team of healthcare providers develops a customized balance program to give you the confidence you need to not live in fear of falling.
For tougher neuropathy treatment cases we also utilize our NeuroRegen-CT injections, which combine platelet rich plasma (PRP) with platelet derived growth factors from your own blood.
These natural regenerative procedures help support blood vessel and nerve growth to safely reverse damage from peripheral neuropathy.
