A Unique Approach to Neuropathy Treatment
Neuropathy is a painful condition caused by nerve damage. The nerve damage can be caused by a range of conditions, from injury to uncontrolled diabetes. People with neuropathy sometimes experience mild symptoms, but frequently deal with severe numbness, burning and stabbing pains, muscle weakness, and extreme sensitivity to touch and temperature. Over time, neuropathy can also cause balance difficulties and loss of bladder and bowel control.
Fortunately, Dr. Weinberg and the rest of the multidisciplinary team at Active Health offer effective, evidence-based neuropathy treatment in North Palm Beach to get you back to your usual activities. Here are some of the unique neuropathy treatments we use at Active Health.
The ReBuilder is a handheld device that is used to stimulate the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the affected areas while helping to restore the balance of nerve energy along the axons, reducing pain. During treatment with the ReBuilder, which takes about 30 minutes per session, electrical impulses are used to encourage blood flow, wake up nerve cells that are dormant, and reduce tension in nerve cells that have shrunk. There is pain relief for hours after each session, and with repeated treatments, prolonged pain relief can be achieved.
Infrared Light Therapy
Infrared light therapy relies on LED light waves to stimulate blood flow into the areas affected by neuropathy. Frequently, especially in neuropathy patients with diabetes, circulation problems starve nerves of oxygen-rich blood, which in turn causes the neuropathy. Infrared light therapy restores that blood flow so that the nerves can be healed, and symptoms reversed.
Infrared light therapy can be used to provide temporary, immediate symptom relief, and the effects are cumulative, making neuropathy easier to manage with each treatment.
Chiropractic Care with Nutritional Counseling
If your spinal alignment is not healthy, you could experience neuropathy caused by compression of nerves in your spine. Chiropractic care uses spinal adjustments in conjunction with other therapies to restore healthy spinal positioning to ease nerve pain.
Nutritional counseling is another helpful component of chiropractic care that can help neuropathy symptoms, especially when neuropathy is exacerbated by high blood sugar levels.
