PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY: A CLOSER LOOK I invite you to try a diagnostic and therapeutic approach way beyond anything you have tried until now. Our clinically proven approach to peripheral neuropathy can help even the most chronic sufferer. You can be confident that this approach to care has helped thousands in the US and is now available here in the tri-state area. Peripheral Neuropathy is quickly becoming one of the more common chronic conditions in the country and is being diagnosis in younger people every year. With peripheral neuropathy the nerves that go down the arms and legs (peripheral nerves) stop functioning properly. ﷯There are many possible causes of peripheral neuropathy (PN) including mechanically induced problems like nerve root compression, herniated discs, carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal stenosis (narrowing of the opening from which the nerve or spinal cord passes), arthritis, entrapment syndromes, and even from spastic muscles compressing the nerve. I use specific neurological and mechanical treatment protocols to reduce the compression to the nerves that are affected in these mechanically induced neuropathies. The approach is all natural without drugs or surgery and the therapies are very effective allowing people to avoid unnecessary surgery. Diabetic neuropathy is the most common of the metabolic (nutritional) causes of PN. The damage with diabetic neuropathy occurs because of poor blood sugar regulation starves the nerve cells of adequate fuel and this problem is made worse with syndrome X or insulin resistance. I recently had a patient with a metabolic cause of peripheral neuropathy who for the past 10 years had been dealing with symptoms of tingling, burning pain, and numbness in both feet and he said it felt like he was always walking on "soft twigs". He said that he has been to many different health providers for therapy, medications, diet consults, more drugs, etc. I started by reviewing his entire history and then taking a new detailed history that revealed some things that he had not thought of previously. I then performed a neurological exam, and sent him for some blood work. It seemed to me that these neuropathy symptoms were being caused due to poor blood sugar regulation that was getting worse over the years. The blood work revealed that he was dangerously close to being a diabetic. We began working together to make changes to his diet so that he could manage his blood sugar and insulin spikes. In about 4 weeks he began to feel his feet again and after 10 weeks his pain was "90% gone". He says that he is better than he has been in years and is enjoying playing golf again. Alcohol and both prescription and recreational drugs are examples of chemicals that can cause chemically induced neuropathy. More and more research has come out reporting that one of the side effects of the statin class of cholesterol lowering drugs like Lipitor is peripheral neuropathy. In 2004 the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey reported that 33.5 million older Americans (men age 50 years and older and women age 60 years and older) are currently taking statin drugs (24.4%) and this number grows every year. The problem has grown to the point that the statins now carry a warning that reads, "Unexplained muscle pain and weakness could be a sign of a rare but serious side effect and should be reported to your doctor right away." Neuropathy, muscle pain, and muscle weakness are three of the main side effects of statin drugs. It is important to note that one should always consult their doctor to determine if they can or cannot alter their statin medications in any way. There are many possible symptoms with neuropathy but the most commonly reported include: numbness, tingling, pain, and stabbing or pricking sensations. Burning pain, especially at night, and a painful sensation to light touch are also common complaints. Some patients cannot stand to have a light bed sheet touch their legs and feet. Problems with balance are common and some patients feel like they are walking on peg legs as if they had no feet. When PN is left undiagnosed and not treated or ineffectively treated, the outcome is poor. Neuropathy eventually leads to a slow progressive deterioration of the muscles and sometimes even to paralysis. In extreme cases of severe neuropathy the outcome is premature death. I tend to see moderate to severe cases of neuropathy in most of my patients because they have been dealing with the problem for years and have not been treated effectively. By the time I see many of these patients they are taking very large doses Neurontin (Gabapentin) to reportedly control the pain and report that even at these high doses it does not help relieve the neuropathy but does produce many undesirable side effects.
﷯What Kind Of Therapy? Using a combination of several types of spinal adjusting, laser and light therapy, spinal decompression, dry needle therapy, whole body vibration, oxygen, massage, active rehab, The Rebuilder nerve stimulator, and other neuro-based therapies geared toward your specific condition we'll address your peripheral neuropathy in a very dynamic way. We'll also support the nervous system with advanced nutritional supplements and diet based protocols that are designed to give you every possible chance to not only get better but to feel and function better. Our primary mission is to restore normal nerve communications, muscle and joint function, and overall health by healing your body from the inside out. I understand that peripheral neuropathy is a very complex disorder and frequently has multiple causes that all need to be addressed if you are to improve and get your life back. If you are suffering from peripheral neuropathy then I invite you to call and schedule a visit to my office for a detailed history and a thorough exam to pinpoint the causes of your neuropathy by a doctor who understands functional neurologic and metabolic disorders and has the expertise to recommend and apply the appropriate treatments.
