Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment
Peripheral neuropathy refers to the damage of nerves on the peripheral nervous system. It is caused when nerves are subject to disease, trauma or a side effect of systemic illness. Dynamic Medical Rehab is Kentucky’s only certified NeuropathyDR treatment center.
Beating Peripheral Neuropathy
New protocol dramatically reduces pain, burning and tingling, fosters your own independence too… Until now, most treatments have focused only on symptom control, largely by way of drugs, and blood sugar control in diabetic patients. Physical therapy alone often provides little, if any, lasting relief. As you know, drug costs and patient compliance, as well as medication side effects have left us all wishing there were more as doctors that we could do for our patients. Well, now there is! Using a combination of nutrition and diet education, exercise and rehab therapies, patients have begun to see positive results. In addition, clinically tested Medical 7.8Hz electrotherapy with additional massage techniques and spinal manual therapies where indicated, patients can achieve not only lasting relief, but long term self-management. Most patients can then be transitioned to home care with a successful clinical trial.
What’s different about this program?
Whether due to diabetes, chemotherapy or other disorders, neuropathy symptoms share common causes. Nerve tissues are highly vulnerable to damage from diseases that impair the body’s ability to transform nutrients into energy, process biochemical waste products, circulate oxygen, or manufacture some components of cellular repair. Diabetes mellitus is a major cause of peripheral neuropathy in the United States. About 60 percent to 70 percent of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of neuropathy. Chemotherapy is another leading cause in our age advancing populations of patients in most communities.
Combined Electro Stimulation at 7.83 Hz: A pain-free electrical dual frequency signal (one to stimulate the nerve cells and the other to trigger muscle cells) is pulsed on and off at the frequency of 7.83 cycles per second. We have found that the human body is particularly sensitive to this frequency. One possible explanation for this sensitivity is that the electrical potential between the earth’s atmosphere and the earth’s surface is also approximately 7.83 Hz. Using this signal frequency, *research has found that the body not only responds favorably but the brain is induced to release large amounts of endorphins. The effect of this endorphin release is a generalized sense of well-being, a reduction in pain and anxiety levels elsewhere in the body, and even a reduction in emotional pain. Long-term clinical applications suggest some normalization of function is occurring. This ensures a very high level of patient compliance not only because you feel good physically during the treatment period but because you feel better emotionally afterward experiencing a reduction in pain for a period of 4 to 6 hours.
What About My Alignment and Exercise? In most patients, the lumbar and hip (piriformis) areas experience muscle spasms, blood flow is restricted through muscles resulting in reduced oxygen availability to the surrounding tissue, including nerve cells. Because muscles can use either oxygen or glucose metabolic pathways, they can recover quickly from a temporary reduction in circulation. Nerve cells, on the other hand, are limited to a different system and must take immediate defensive steps to survive. Our program provides the right combination of manual therapies and home exercise and self-care programs to effect lasting changes in circulation and maximum treatment independence. Dynamic Medical & Rehab takes a 21st century approach to diagnosing and treating neuropathy. By using the latest diagnostic technology, we have successfully been able to help neuropathy patients feel better and live healthier, pain-free, fulfilling lives. We specialize in using non-invasive and non-surgical treatments that don’t involve the use of potentially addictive prescribed pain medications.
