What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Small fiber peripheral neuropathy is a disorder that impairs the smaller nerves under the skin, causing sensory changes. The symptoms typically start at the toes or fingertips and gradually move up the legs or arms. Some people describe the sensory loss as a tight stocking or tight glove feeling; others describe it as burning, tingling, or numbness, with occasional sharp pains. Some people have intense sensitivity, and some people have hardly any feeling. The symptoms may worsen at night and can also be related to the disorder known as restless leg syndrome.
What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?
There are several causes of peripheral neuropathy. Many sufferers can often attribute their condition to multiple causes, while others have peripheral neuropathy from unknown causes (idiopathic). The most common known cause of peripheral neuropathy is type 2 diabetes, though we also see many patients whose peripheral neuropathy was a side effect of prescription medication. Most doctors prescribe painkillers for neuropathy symptoms rather than treating the progressive condition with alternative methods. At Feel Amazing Institute, we are devoted to working with our patients toward improved health by treating the condition itself.
Why Have I Heard There Is No Treatment That Works for Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy can be a disheartening diagnosis to many, because it is progressive and has historically been very difficult to treat successfully. There is no drug or surgery that can be used to actually improve the condition, so normally painkillers are prescribed to mask the symptoms but of course do nothing for the numbness. The only treatments that actually work to reverse symptoms are very specific intensive therapies, which require a time commitment most physicians aren’t able to make. At our office, we specialize in therapy and are willing to take the time your condition warrants.
What Is the Neuropathy Treatment?
The core of the treatment is a low-level infrared light therapy often combined with stem-cell allografts, which have been clinically proven to reduce the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. It is drug free and works by improving circulation and boosting your body’s natural healing capabilities. In addition, patients receive multiple other therapies known to increase balance, improve the brain–body connection, and restore normal circulation and nerve function to the extremities. Based on your personal situation, you may also receive customized nutritional or exercise plans.
What Kinds of Effects Can Be Achieved through the Neuropathy Treatment?
Clinical studies show that more than 90 percent of the people who undergo our treatment experience excellent results with one or more of the following: reduced pain and cramps, reduced tingling and numbness, ability to experience normal touch without pain, reduced cold or burning sensations, improved balance and coordination, lowered dependency on medications, improved sleep, and reduced sensation of restlessness in the legs. Additionally, several patients also experience reduced local swelling and inflammation, increased range of motion, increased blood flow to the extremities, decreased tension, and decreased muscle spasm. An important side benefit to the treatment is that it significantly reduces the risk of falls by improving balance and position awareness of the feet.
How Long Will This Take, and How Much Does It Cost?
Our patients often report improvement within the first two weeks of treatment. The length of treatment varies, depending on the severity of the condition, on the cause of the condition, and even on different people with similar levels of severity. We will be able to tell you more after your exam, but the amount of therapy you will personally need varies on many unknown factors and can be unpredictable. You will receive a sample treatment and a price quote on the first visit.
What We Can Promise You
Your condition will be monitored throughout your course of care, and we will work with you to help you make decisions from an informed, knowledgeable standpoint. We will never perform any procedures that have not demonstrated results in the past, and we will never perform or recommend anything that we don’t think is necessary to get the results you want. We will also work with your insurance company to keep your out-of-pocket expenses as low as possible.
