Do you have tingling, pins and needles, burning, or even sharp pains in your feet or hands? Is it impacting your balance and mobility?
You may have neuropathy. Neuropathy is a disease that causes dysfunction in nerves. There are two types of neuropathy. Mono-Neuropathy that affects nerves close to the spine and typically radiates down one arm or leg. Peripheral Neuropathy or Poly-Neuropathy affects smaller nerve bundles typically in the extremities.
Peripheral neuropathy can impact the autonomic, sensory and motor nerves. This means it can cause weakness, numbness, tingling, pain usually affecting the hands and feet and most debilitating, balance problems. You probably are or have taken gabapentin, neurontin, cymbalta, and have been told by your doctor you just have to live with the pain. This is not the truth. Peripheral neuropathy 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.
Pain is the variable in neuropathy. For some this is the first symptom they experience and for others, they never have pain. Neuropathy can be caused by metabolic problems, repetitive injury, vascular problems, autoimmune issues, kidney and liver disorders, traumatic injury, spine issues, diabetes, infections, chemotherapy, chemical exposures and even some prescription medications.
Neuropathy sufferers often experience problems with sleeping, depression, chronic fatigue, and loss of independence. The symptoms depend on the type of nerve fibers that are affected and the severity of damage. Many have been told that there is nothing that they can do about it and they will just have to learn to live with it. They often are frustrated by the options for treatment in Western Medicine that include prescription drugs like Gabapentin, Cymbalta, Lyrica or Neurontin. While these drugs can provide a temporary relief, they do not heal the nerve.
Despite what most are told from Western Medicine, if you treat the root cause of the neuropathy it can not only be prevented, but the nerve damage can be reversed.
- Approximately 30% of neuropathies are “idiopathic,” or of an unknown cause
- Peripheral Neuropathy affects nearly 46.5 million Americans
- Approximately 150,000 patients per year have amputations due to neuropathy
- 30-40% of all cancer patients have chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy
- It is estimated that 60-70% of diabetics suffer from peripheral neuropathy
- 90% of neuropathy sufferers depend on mediations or injections to manage their symptoms
- Falls and hip fractures because of balance issues with neuropathy are on the rise
- All of these numbers are on the rise
What do these statistics tell us?
The approach in Western Medicine is not working. Taking or injecting a drug cannot heal the nerve. Amputation does not stop the progression. Surgery often fails to help those with neuropathy.
There is a way to successfully treat neuropathy without the use of drugs, surgeries, or injections.
We have an innovative and systematic approach to treating neuropathy and getting you back to happy living. If you have already tried other medical therapies such as medications and physical therapy there is a very good chance our system is a good fit for you. Our techniques that address the neurological, metabolic, and nutritional challenges allow us to get rid of chronic symptoms no matter how long they have been there. We look forward to hearing from you and getting your health back. We are always happy to help.
What makes our treatment different?
We have found that in order to get results with neuropathy, you have to take a comprehensive approach and look at the root cause of the problem. Once we give the body what it needs, it will heal itself.
Every patient is different, but here are some of our treatment regimens:
- Low Level Light Therapy
- Nerve Re-Education
- Physical Therapy
- Balance Therapy
- Spinal Decompression
- Chiropractic Care
- In-Clinic & Home Programs available upon health evaluation
Although there are some cases that can not be helped, we have treated thousands of patients that were able to get their life back!
If we choose to accept your case, our program yields a 96% success rate!
Patient Evaluation Process:
- Initial Consultation
- Complete Evaluation Process with healthcare professional
- Complete evaluation will be completed
- The severity of your neuropathy will be determined
- A program will be designed for you if your case is accepted
How long will it take to see results?
70% of patients will notice improvement in the first few weeks. Some will take up to 90 days to notice a change. However, maximum healing will take up to 12-15 months.
Does insurance cover care?
We accept all insurances including Medicare. Some insurances cover more than others.
When you arrive for your appointment, our team will collect your insurance information. If our extensive, painless nerve damage evaluation qualifies you as a candidate for our neuropathy reversal program, we will contact your insurance company to very benefits.
Why can’t we just tell you what each visit will cost? The best analogy I can give is taking your car in for a problem. The mechanics do not know how much it will cost until they diagnose the problem. We don’t know what kind of care you will need, therefore we are not sure if insurance will cover or not or how much it will be.
When you meet with our doctor to go over your results, she will review the findings of your evaluation (how much nerve damage you have) and your care plan with you. Then, our case manager will cover with you how your insurance will participate in your recovery.
If there should be any out of pocket expense, we will prove you with options.
We have financial solutions, should you need them, as long as you are a good candidate for care.
All of these elements come together in our neuropathy program that will be catered to you. We evaluate each patient and put together a tailored program to give each patient the best results. We look forward to serving you!
