What is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy is a condition that results any or all of the following symptoms occuring in the extremities due to a variety of causes including but not limited to: chemotherapy, medication use, diabetes, alcoholism, nutritional deficits or what is called idiopathic neuropathy.
Symptoms of Neuropathy may include:
- Burning Sensations
- Lack of Sensation
- Cold Feet - even in warm weather
- Hyper Sensations - such as “pins and needles” or “ants crawling up and down your legs
Treatment of Neuropathy:
Traditionally, neuropathy patients have not had many options besides very strong prescription medications that can have many side effects. But today, MLS therapy is changing that. MLS Laser therapy causes vasodilation, which increases the blood flow to the extremities. In turn, this decreases inflammation, decreases pain, and encourages the healing of peripheral nerve tissue, thus providing a non-medicated alternative for pain for Neuropathy patients, and reducing the need for medications.
Because neuropathy develops over time, it also takes several treatments to experience the most benefit. Our doctors recommend at least 12 treatments to the lower extremity, with each session taking about 30 minutes. Frequency of treatments is recommended at 2 times per week. Session appointments are scheduled Monday - Friday between the hours of 9:30 - 12:00.
Our laser technicians are well versed in the protocols, and the doctors will always continue to evaluate what is working for each patient. The effects are cumulative, and so we expect to see increasing benefits as treatments continue.
