Peripheral Neuropathy is the result of damage to the nerves, often in the hands and feet, causing weakness, numbness, tingling, or burning and shooting pain. This damage can be caused by diabetes, chemotherapy, injury, infection, and exposure to toxins, all which reduce blood flow to the hands and feet, resulting in a lack of nutrients causing the nerves to degenerate and die.
Neuropathy is a degenerative condition, so once those nerves begin to deteriorate, they will continue to do so until they are completely expired, leaving those suffering with debilitating pain and crippling balance issues. Unfortunately, Western medicine does not offer many treatment options, and many times patients are told that they will just have to live with this debilitating condition the rest of their life.
During your consultation we will perform a sensory exam to determine to amount of sensory loss that you have suffered. This will determine the treatment plan that we will recommend.
Our treatment technique combines acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, and microcurrent to increase blood flow to the hands and feet by stimulating blood vessels for regrowth that will provide the peripheral nerves with the proper nutrients to heal and repair.
This technique can also be used to treat other neurological conditions such as:
- Bell’s Palsy
- Chemo-Induced Neuropathy
- Diabetic Neuropathy
- Macular Degeneration
- Post-Herpetic Neuralgia & Shingles
- Stroke recovery
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
