Peripheral neuropathy is common. It is estimated that upwards of 24 million Americans suffer from this illness. It can occur at any age, but is more common among older adults
This is a disorder of the peripheral nerves–the motor, sensory and autonomic nerves that connect the spinal cord to muscles, skin and internal organs. It usually affects the hands and feet, causing weakness, numbness, tingling, pain, and most debilitating, balance problems. You probably are or may have taken gabapentin, neurotin, cymbalta, and have been told by your doctor you just have to live with the pain. This is not the truth. Peripheral neuropathy’s course is variable; it can come and go, slowly progressing over many years, or it can become severe and debilitating. However, if diagnosed early, peripheral neuropathy can often be controlled and corrected.
The interventions and technology we use are designed to address the multiple factor that can contribute to the development of neuropathy, and provide ongoing relief for our patients. We have a unique system where you only have to come in the office 1x/week for a period of time while gaining independence from your neuropathy condition.
