Neuropathy Treatment Q & A

Why would I need neuropathy treatment?

Early diagnosis and treatment of peripheral neuropathy are essential because nerves cannot regenerate, and neuropathy treatment may stop it from worsening, but not reverse damage. Treatment relies heavily on the cause of nerve damage.

For instance, peripheral neuropathy caused by a vitamin deficiency can be treated and even reversed with improved diet and vitamin therapy. When neuropathy is related to diabetes, careful monitoring of blood sugar levels might curb symptoms and slow its progression.

What kind of treatment is there for neuropathy?

Neuropathy treatment depends on the type of neuropathy and various other factors. Your Elite Family Chiropractic provider can recommend treatments best suited for your condition, unique health needs, and lifestyle, like:

PEMF Therapy

Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) can effectively reduce pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Bio-Electric Magnetic Energy Regulation (BEMER), the next generation of PEMF therapy, stimulates healthy muscles to improve and facilitate muscle performance.

Elite Family Chiropractic uses BEMER therapy (a PEMF brand) to treat neuropathy symptoms and slow progression over a short time.

Laser Therapy

Class 4 laser therapy, offered by Elite Family Chiropractic, is a non-invasive treatment method that uses high-intensity light to stimulate cellular function, enhance tissue repair, and relieve pain. The class 4 laser, developed by Summus Medical Laser, penetrates deeper into the tissue, delivering therapeutic light energy to the affected area and promoting rapid healing.

Therapy increases blood flow to the affected area, reduces swelling and inflammation, relieves pain, and accelerates tissue healing. Patients with chronic conditions, such as neuropathy or arthritis, and acute conditions, like sports injuries, can benefit.

Our doctors customize each neuropathy treatment plan to meet each patient's unique needs.

Is neuropathy treatment safe?

It is important to note that while class 4 laser therapy, PEMF, and BEMER therapy are very safe for most people, neuropathy treatment may not be suitable for all patients.

For example, individuals with pacemakers, insulin pumps, other electrical implants, or those who are pregnant shouldn’t use PEMF therapy. Discussing any concerns or questions with the doctor during your consultation is always recommended.

With the numerous neuropathy treatment options available, you can rediscover the joy of pain relief and an improved quality of life. Don't let neuropathy and pinched nerve pain keep you from doing the things you love.
