Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment

Neuropathy

What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?

The peripheral nervous system is the nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord. “Neuropathy” is a disease or dysfunction of one or more of these nerves.  Peripheral Neuropathy occurs when these nerves are damaged, sick, or dying.

More than 20 million in the US suffer from peripheral neuropathy. The majority are over the age of 45. That’s almost 1 out of 17 Americans have peripheral neuropathy. Many suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy have lost the ability to enjoy  activities they love such as traveling, sports, social events, and spending time with family as a result of the pain, burning, numbness, tingling, difficulty walking, and other symptoms associated with Peripheral Neuropathy.

Common Symptoms Of Neuropathy

Below are some of the most common symptoms experienced by people suffering from neuropathy located in their arms, hands, legs and feet.

  • Burning pain radiating in the hands or feet
  • Pins and needles in the extremities
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Weakness in arms and legs
  • A knotted feeling in the soles and palms
  • Pain from the lightest touches
  • Difficulty walking
  • Pain from the pressure of walking
  • Balance problems and falling
  • Inability to grasp with the hands
  • Cramping in the feet
  • Fingers twisting and locking
  • Pain when twisting the wrists
  • Hands and feet feeling tired or heavy
  • Night pain and sleep difficulty
  • Restless legs and feet
  • Pain that seems to come even from the sheets or covers on your feet at night

Pain from Neuropathy tends to be worse at night. This makes it difficult to get a full night’s sleep which can lead to other health problems.

Causes Of Neuropathy

Metabolic – Risk Factors

  • Diabetes is the most common cause of Neuropathy accounting for approximately a third of cases.
  • B1, B6, B12, E, or Niacin deficiencies

Chemical – Risk Factors

  • Chemotherapy
  • Alcoholism
  • Drugs / Prescription Medication
  • War Toxins / Industrial Toxins

Mechanical – Risk Factors

  • Bulged and Herniated Disc(s)
  • Degenerative Disc(s)
  • Spinal Stenosis

These causes are also very common, and are most often a result from mechanical joint problems, which compress the nerves where they exit the spine.

Autoimmune – Risk Factors

  • Lupis
  • Rhematoid Arthritis
  • Sjogrens Disease

Hereditary – Risk Factors

  • Neurological diseases such as Friedriech’s Ataxia and Charcot Marie Tooth Disease.

Idiopathic

  • Neuropathy can also be idiopathic, meaning from an unknown cause.

Treatment

At Bailey Health Solutions we use a clinically proven electromedical treatment provided with a device called the Neurogenx 4000Pro, a cutting-edge treatment tool that is FDA-cleared and patented as the only device of its kind. It generates a sophisticated electronic signal with a wide frequency band to safely treat the pain, tingling, burning and numbness  resulting from neuropathy and chronic nerve conditions.

Because nerves are naturally conductive, the current generated by Neurogenx is drawn especially to the nerve cells. As the nerves process and transmit this current, several important healing mechanisms are triggered:

  • Cellular metabolism increases
  • pH levels normalize
  • Excess fluids and waste products are removed
  • Swelling decreases
  • Increased circulation to the nerves

Furthermore, because the Neurogenx signal promotes sustained depolarization of cellular membranes, their “gateways” remain in the “open” position—in other words, they are once again able to absorb energy and remove waste products effectively, which helps them function correctly. This creates the kind of healthy, nourishing environment necessary for the damaged nerve cells to begin healing.

Because Neurogenx is effective for all types of peripheral nerves, it can help you with whatever specific nerve-related problem you may be experiencing—sensation, balance, muscle tone, strength, autonomic function, etc.

Why Should I Get Treated?

If the pain or numbness in your feet isn’t enough to bring you to seek treatment for your neuropathy, there are a number of other reasons you should seek treatment for neuropathy as soon as possible.

Neuropathy often gets slowly worse, and is easiest treated sooner in the progression. Treat your neuropathy as soon as possible for the best possible results!

Just a few of the consequences for neuropathy include open sores which become difficult to heal, infection, difficulty sleeping and pain which is not relieved with medications. Balance issues, including risk of falling or actually falling, is a serious consequence of neuropathy. In severe cases, loss of toes or feet can also result from neuropathy complications.

Neuropathy Prognosis

We understand how hard life can be when you are in pain. Simple, everyday tasks can become huge obstacles. Our goal is to help you regain improved sensation, range of motion and balance while walking, exercising, typing or writing  – so you can get back to enjoying life.

The earlier the diagnosis is made and treatment is started, the greater the chance that nerve damage can be slowed or reversed.

A better life is just a call away… Contact us and find out how we can help you get moving again!
