The traditional medical treatment for peripheral neuropathy consists primarily of medications designed to cover up the symptoms of this condition. Common drugs include Cymbalta, Lyrica, and Gabapentin, and none of these address the actual cause of the problem, just the symptoms.
Many patients have been told by their physician that there simply is limited or nothing more that can be done to help and they have to just live with it.
There is no cure for peripheral neuropathy, meaning you won’t have brand new hands or feet but research shows that peripheral nerves have the ability to regenerate and therapies can help to significantly reduce the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy giving patients more relief and an improved quality of life. Even better is these changes can be maintained for the long term with our doctor supervised home treatment program and nutritional protocols you can continue on your own to help stop or slow the progression.
Neuropathy Care in Woodbury
We blend traditional health care with breakthrough FDA cleared medical device technologies to offer care that is not available in most major medical offices and can be done from the comfort of your own home. In fact, after completing our "Doctor Supervised Home Treatment Program”, 90% of patients surveyed report their care was a success. A large majority of them had already tried medications and been told that nothing more could be done. Our clinical experience has shown that often a lot more can be done!
Using the latest FDA cleared medical devices; our office offers a non-invasive, non-surgical and painless Doctor Supervised Home Treatment Program. Our goal is to reduce as much neuropathy symptoms as possible.
These therapies are shown to make a significant difference in your recovery by increasing micro blood flow and sensitivity. The body has the best ability to heal when it gets as much blood and oxygen as possible to the damaged areas. They are even effective for patients suffering from extreme complications.
By improving circulation to the feet or hands, the body has the potential to regenerate damaged nerve tissue if the damage is not permanent. Even better is that these changes can maintain for the long term with the simple home therapies that you’ll continue on your own.
What's Your Neuropathy Score?
In order to effectively help you, three factors must be determined to see if you’re a candidate for care in our office.
- What is the underlying cause?
- How much nerve damage has been sustained?
- How much therapy will your condition require?
Unfortunately, sometimes the damage is simply too severe to achieve symptom relief and there is likely nothing we can do to help. However that can only be determined during the consultation and examination. This is why early detection of neuropathy is so important to maximize your chances of getting the most relief and results possible.
Our neuropathy severity examination assesses the amount of lost sensation to the nerves in your hands or feet that are responsible for feeling hot, cold, light touch, sharp touch, vibration, balance and much more. The examination we use allows us to determine a Neuropathy Severity Score that indicates how much sensory nerve damage you have sustained. The neuropathy severity examination will consist of a detailed sensory evaluation and a detailed analysis of the findings of your sensory neuropathy examination. The Doctor will take the time to sit down with you and explain in detail what your test results show and what options you may have for care.
