"Peripheral nerves have the ability to regenerate as long as the underlying nerve cell has NOT been killed.” -The National Institute of Health - NIH
Peripheral neuropathy can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes is diabetes.
People with peripheral neuropathy generally describe the pain as stabbing, burning or tingling. Most commonly, symptoms are masked with the use of prescription drugs, that may cause unwanted side effects. without treating the underlying condition.
At Integrated Body and Medicine, We offer a *state-of-the-art and drug free* treatment program with a proven track record of success. We provide a personalized treatment plan to help our patients regenerate damaged nerves.
More About Our Neuropathy Treatment
The treatment that is provided has three main goals:
1) Increase blood flow
2) Stimulate small fiber nerves
3) Decrease brain-based pain
The treatment to increase blood flow utilizes FOUR specialized and advanced forms of technology. Some of the technology used in our treatment was even created by NASA to assist with increasing blood flow and circulation. The treatment will allow the blood vessels to regain function around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper oxygen and nutrients to heal and repair much of the decayed tissue that is causing your symptoms.
The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. Don't be discouraged and think your condition can't be helped regardless of what other medical professionals may have told you in the past. As long as there has not been more than 85% sustained nerve damage, there is hope for significant improvement!
More About Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves which often times causes weakness, pain, numbness, tingling, and debilitating balance problems. This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves of the hands and feet which causes the nerves to begin to degenerate and decay due to a lack of oxygen and nutrient flow.
As the blood vessels that surround the nerves become diseased, the nerves themselves begin to shrivel up. This degenerative process causes the nerves to not get the oxygen and nutrients they need to continue to survive. When these nerves begin to “die” they cause balance problems, pain, numbness, tingling, burning, and many additional symptoms.
The main problem for patients who suffer from this debilitating and very painful disease is the fact that doctors have said the only options available are either to just live with the problem or try the drugs currently used to mask the symptoms of Neuropathy. Most people don’t like taking these powerful drugs because they make them feel uncomfortable and very foggy. "Zombie like" is how many patients describe how they feel when they take the drugs currently prescribed to manage Neuropathy symptoms.
Fortunately, there is now a clinic right here in the Northwest Indiana area that offers REAL hope without the use of "Zombie" inducing drugs that never actually help the patient get any better or healthier.
In order to effectively treat Neuropathy three factors must be determined.
1) What is the underlying cause?
2) How much nerve damage has been sustained?
3) How much treatment will be required?
