Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment
We now offer a non-invasive and effective solution for treating and managing symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy using Class 4 High Power Deep Tissue Laser along with red and infrared light and compression therapy. Peripheral Neuropathy refers to various conditions and symptoms caused by damage to the peripheral nerves outside of the spinal cord. The central nervous system (CNS), which comprises the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system (PNS), made up of nerves transmitting signals from the CNS, work together to transmit impulses to the arms, legs, joints, mouth, eyes, ears, nose, skin, and all other parts of the body outside of the CNS.
However, when there is damage to the peripheral nerves, it affects the transmission of signals between the brain and spinal cord to the muscles, skin, and other parts of the body, leading to Peripheral Neuropathy. This laser treatment, approved by the FDA, helps alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and aid in the repair of peripheral nerves and tissue regeneration. Research has shown it to be 90% effective in treating common symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy by increasing cellular metabolism and hastening the healing process.
Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy include numbness, burning, tingling, pain, and a possible loss of function in affected areas. Issues with peripheral sensory nerves can result in pain, tingling, burning, or numbness, while problems with peripheral motor nerves can lead to difficulties with walking, lifting, or moving the arms and legs. The most common form of Peripheral Neuropathy, Polyneuropathy (affecting multiple nerves at once), is often Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, causing limb pain, tingling, burning, numbness, and even phantom limb sensations.
The leading cause of Peripheral Neuropathy is Diabetes, with over 70% of diabetic patients experiencing symptoms. Other causes include chemotherapy, traumatic injury, exposure to toxins, and alcoholism. When a specific cause cannot be determined, it is referred to as "idiopathic Neuropathy."
