"PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY BACKGROUND (If you are new to the condition)
Peripheral neuropathy describes damage to the peripheral nervous system, the vast communications network that transmits information from the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) to every other part of the body. Peripheral nerves also send sensory information back to the brain and spinal cord, such as a message that the feet are cold or a finger is burned. Damage to the peripheral nervous system interferes with these vital connections. Like poor connection to a cell phone tower, peripheral neuropathy distorts and sometimes interrupts messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
Patients with peripheral neuropathy often experience chronic tingling, numbness, weakness, or burning pain. They often find it difficult to walk, sense if they are going down stairs properly, know if they have injured the affected area and generally are miserable because of the chronic pain they often experience.
We take a comprehensive approach to helping our patients with peripheral neuropathy. Not only do we treat the local area affected by using cutting edge therapy, addressing metabolic conditions (such as blood sugar problems) but we also treat areas in the brain responsible to receiving these messages from the body. It is common that peripheral nerve damage will lead to functional changes in the brain! You MUST address all areas in order to get the BEST OUTCOMES.
There is a 'road map' in the brain of your entire body. Every body area (foot, hand, face, etc.) is represented in a part of the brain called the parietal lobe. If poor nerve signals come into the brain because of peripheral neuropathy, this can lead to problems in the brain itself.
Although you might start out with peripheral neuropathy, the longer you have this condition the more likely you'll experience issues higher up into areas of the brain.
That is why damage to the peripheral nerves is just part of the story. And why treating the local area can lead to discouraging short-term results.
We Offer So Much More…A Unique Non-Drug Approach
It all starts with a unique exam based on the Toronto Clinical Scoring System. Why? Because this exam scores the health or sickness or your nerves. Wouldn't it be nice to objectively demonstrate where you are and how you are improving? Not just, "I feel good today" but an exam that proves you are getting better. How is this accomplished? Through the unique combination of clinically proven therapies…
First you should know that we address each person as an individual using both metabolic and neurologic strategies. This is what we mean by "no stone is left unturned" when it comes to helping our patients. You are not looking to try an old previously unsuccessful treatment again…you want relief…you want results!
So we get results by looking at you with a fresh set of diagnostic and therapeutic eyes. We use a combination of objective blood based nutrition, laser, oxygen, Rebuilder®, unilateral spinal adjusting, vibration, spinal decompression, trigger point massage, Graston Technique and other brain-based therapies geared toward your specific condition to address peripheral neuropathy in a very dynamic way.
These protocols are designed to give you every chance possible to feel better. Why not restore normal nerve communication, function and health by healing from the inside out?
